If ND is the only school invited to the big 10 that would leave the big east to add one all sports school.  That would give the football schools there much needed 9th member.  Yeah adding a CUSA team might not be considered a better situation, but if the rest of the BE stays in tact I would say it is.  I would guess memphis and UCF would be the front runners.  I see this forcing ND's hand, cause they would not be able to compete with 4 16 member conferences.  I think swarbrick  realizes this.

adding a non BCS member is taking a step back.

Redfisher, I totally agree. I don't see how ANYBODY would be happy with a downgrade. The best thing for the Big East is to merge with the ACC. I guess some of our fellow Bulls see the the Big East as a powerhouse conference. And thats just ucf type of delusion.

Don't get me wrong if we could get into the acc it would be much better, but we could be the odd man out.  I rather be in a bcs conference than not.

USF's best situation would be getting invite to a "better" conference and a better conference would be any AQ BCS conference.

BE's best situation is nothing happens and the conferences staywhre they are at.

That won't happen so it's next best situation would be picking up some more teams, have a conf champ game, and starting a BE network.

I'm not sure where you get that from.  I asked what current BCS team could the Big East have any chance of luring over.  If Notre Dame completely left and the Big East added an all sports school, we'd still keep our AQ status.  It might not be the most ideal situation, but it could be the best we can get.

It would be great to be in the ACC, but if FSU, Miami, Georgia Tech, and Clemson leave, it wouldn't be nearly as great.

I think most people on this board would say give nd an ultimatum.  They are going to join the big 10 soon anyway.

Add Memphis and they bring more to the basketball side that ND would have vacated. You'd just have to give them the time to catch up in football.

Plus, you'd probably get the Liberty Bowl to be exclusive to the Big East.

    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.
