I don't know how likely this is but I think the Big East should split from the basketball schools and join the Big 12 as the auto-bid will still be intact....that would be 13 teams....they should then add TCU, Houston and ND...lol j/k I know ND wouldn't join.....and a suitable 16th member to make it a power conference....however if they can't find a suitable 16th member, I would just add TCU and go to 14 teams....Again I don't know how likely that scenario is but it would be a solid mix of football schools and basketball schools especially with KU, KSU, BU, UConn, WVU, Pitt, Cuse and UL

This is crazy/exciting. Who knows how the other conferences will respond if all of this goes down as reported. USF could end up in the ACC or SEC if they decide to go super. I think we fit in better with the ACC, but would rather be in the SEC regardless. I would love to see our average attendance continue to rise and our University continue to strive towards AAU status. We are about as far away from AAU as we are an OCS.

Jim clarified in another thread that to keep your AQ to the BCS, you have to have a 6 team conference at least. Thus once the 7 schools bolt the Big 12 would lose their AQ and essentially cease to be. Odds are the leftover schools will team up with the MWC and that new league would have to become eligible for AQ but it may take a few seasons.

I doubt the Big East football schools would break off because that would require one of the AD's and/or Presidents of the football schools to head it up. Obviously the commisioner of the Big East would be against it. I don't see that leadership at this time. All the AD's and Presidents appear to be leaving this to the higher up's at the Big East to worry about. In doing so, I doubt we would see any serious thinking outside the box as regards football. Sad.

Just to clarify, Tampabull found first it in a New York Times article...

But I think you have explained it well here.

lol at us being in the sec. that would be a joke. we cant even handle the size of pitt and rutgers. your right about being a better fit in the acc based on location and style of play but we have to win something first to ever be considered for a top conference.

    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.
