I bet they come up with better division names than Leaders and Legends.
OT - Big East To Announce New Members on Wednesday & Thursday
Is the auto bid really a big deal anymore? Now that we have a separate championship game rather than it alternating amongst the bowls - the BCS games seem to have lost some of their prestige. This year's Cotton Bowl is a better game/matchup than the Orange. The Cap One and Outback look to be as good.
These teams will never be ranked #1 or #2 so they won't be playing for the MNC.
Ask Boise St., they go from BCS to a TERRIBLE bowl vs. a TERRIBLE team.
It's not just BCS, but Conference Affliation to the other bowls.
If Boise's not in the Sugar, I'm sure they'd take the Peach (Chick-Fil-A) Bowl over what they have now...
Getting snubbed again must have really pissed Boise off...
....when you're so mad that you could join the Big East.
no tradition, no geogrphic continuity and hopefully no automatic bids into the BCS. The Big lEast is exhibit 1A on why the BCS is terrible.
They really should change their name. How many teams are in there? if it isn't ten or twelve, then there's your new name.
the emphasis here is on "big," not so much on "east"
Have fun traveling accross the country all year, boys. The guys at the biggest advantage are Houston and SMU. They don't have too big of a hike to go to either side.
University of Hawaii to the CONCACAF!
What an absolute Cluster F.
There is nothing that glues these institutions together. No common history, or culture, or geography, or rivalries, . . . nothing. It is just a random hodge-podge collection of football and basketball schools
Is it any wonder why schools keep dropping out of this "conference" at the first sign of discord or the first opportunity to go somewhere else?
What glues these institutions together is that the Big East is an AQ conference.
The BCS makes for strange bedfellows.
the MWC and Conference USA Commissioners (and remaining school presidents) will put up with members taking their football programs to The Big East while trying to keep their other athletic programs in their original conferences.
Call it Big 'Murrica.... There is nothing East about San Diego...
