    Big East adds another school

    Now Memphis is part of the Big East. That's great for basketball, but the Big East still sucks in college football. Its basically the mid major conference that is getting automatic bid to the BCS. Maybe in new incarnation of the BCS, the Big East can swallow all of the mid major college football programs and they can have a playoff to determine who should play in a BCS bowl. Uggh.

    Yea, Big East has always been a problem child. I attended a founding school. Back then it was glorious basketball conference. Expensive football was never part of the equation. The attempts to shoe-horn football into a basketball conference have resulted in one Frankenstein after another.

    I guess , technically Memphis is on the East side of the Mississippi river, so the move makes sense.

    Oh I'm very happy to have Memphis "back".
    Fond memories of UC, Louisville, and Memphis in hoops in a few old conferences.
    And those were not real strong UC years. Memphis and 'Ville were regular top 25 programs.
    Does nothing for the conference football wise.

    Probably about 8.8 seconds after C-USA & the Mountain West merge and become the MidwestEastRockiesToAppalachiaBackToThePacificAndA roundTheWorldToTheEasternSeaboard Conference?

    {Yeah. That's it.}
    Screw you guys, I'm going home.
