I love how I keep hearing how the Big East will lose their BCS auto qualifier if they get raided but do any of you really read the rules?

http://www.bcsfootball.org/news/story?id=4857712

The champions of the Atlantic Coast, Big East, Big 10, Big 12, Pac-10 and Southeastern Conferences will have annual automatic qualification for a BCS game through the 2013 regular season, based on mathematical standards of performance during the 2004-2007 regular seasons.

The evaluation data include the following for each conference (1) the ranking of the highest-ranked team in the final BCS Standings each year, (2) the final regular-season rankings of all conference teams in the computer rankings used by the BCS each year, and (3) the number of teams in the top 25 of the final BCS Standings each year.

The 2008-2011 regular seasons will be evaluated under the same standards to determine if other conferences will have annual automatic qualification for the games after the 2012 and 2013 regular seasons. The champions of no more than seven conferences will have annual automatic berths.

If the BCS continues under the same or a similar format, conferences will be evaluated on their performances during the 2010 to 2013 regular seasons to determine which conferences will have automatic qualification for the bowls that will conclude the 2014-2017 regular seasons.

So even if the conference is raided, what we do the next 4 seasons determines who will have an AQ. The poached teams could not even leave the conference for 2 seasons so I think the Big East will be okay. This makes it sound like the MWC will get an AQ starting in 2012.

The BE will lose AQ status if it doesn't have 8 teams.

    With the climate going on in NCAA athletics, you’re either moving forward at a hard pace or you’re not. I think what intrigued me the most is they’re very determined to become a big player nationally.

    We've talked about getting back to being the toughest, most violent people out there. Let's be the best version of ourselves and really get back to the culture of how we (USF) used to step across the line and play anybody. Let's hold on to the culture of when they were tough … and they (opponents) knew it was going to be long damn day for themselves.
