A team who was I-A for a long time, not particularly good, but is good for low level matchup.Hell, even Buffalo would make a little sense.But a BCS school signing a 1 and 1 with a school that will just become a full fledge I-A member in the Sun Belt next year(I believe) is really dipping low. At least when Pitt gave USF their shot, they were going into Conference USA. Hell, even UCF got 2 and 1s out of Sun Belt teams(most recently Louisiana Lafayette).My question is this: Is this a result of the Big East's tough scheduling issues having the 5th OOC game since time is somewhat short to fill the schedule(and removes bargaining power) or is it a respect issue? If it is a scheduling issue, with Tranghese stepping down after this school year, do you think expansion(or the infamous split) will occur soon thereafter? I know Tranghese was very much in favor of protecting the basketball schools. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
