    It looks like the East of Big East - means anything East of the Pacific!

    What are your thought of several Western Teams joining the Big East?

    Keep in mind, Pitt & Syr are moving to the Atlantic Coast and WV is going to the Big 12 (and will be the most Eastern most team)

    Also the Big East required a 5 million dollar exit fee - now its up to 10 million

    I don't like it whatsoever. You'll have SD St. and Boise St. in the Big East? Really? That's quite ridiculous, eventhough they are FB only in the Big East. They need to see if Hawaii and Univ. of Alaksa-Anchorage(sp?) can come, too.


    UK needs to join the Mountain West,Cal. needs to join the ACC, along with USD, Univ. San Fran., UCLA, and USC. All this makes no sense if you ask me......Boise St. and SD St. joining the Big East.... :rolleyes:

    Don't like it at all, but survival will cause people to do things they would normally not do.

    Missouri & TexasAM to the SE Conference -- really?
    Colorado & Utah to the PAC (Pacific) 12 Conference -- really?
    Pittsburgh & Syracuse to the ACC (Atlantic) Conference -- really?

    So can't blame the Big East for wanting to survive and can't blame the others for wanting to get into a BCS conference.

    True, but that would be like Dr. Bob joining a Southern Baptist Church!!!
