    Big East move... dream scenario

    New Big East

    West Division
    I-State
    K-State
    KU
    TCU
    WVU
    Louisville
    Baylor

    East Division
    Pitt
    Rutgers
    S. Florida
    Syracuse
    UConn
    Villinova (I think they are moving to FBS status?)
    Cincy

    Without looking at the tv contracts, I know it would be a huge step down in revenue. BUT, what does an extra $5-10 million really do for you in the Big XII, when you are not narrowing the gap between you and the middle of the pack? Not to mention UT, OU and OSU keep widening the gap.

    I hate to say it, but we have nothing going for us in the Big XII. Minimal in-state recruiting, facilities that will always be in the bottom of the conference and a small fanbase/donor support. I'm not being pessimistic, just honest.

    Plant us in the Big East, right now, and we can compete. Not just on the field but financially and facility wise, too. I think more fans would support winning 7-10 games in the Big East, than hoping to get to a bowl game 2-3 times a decade in the Big XII.

    Left over Big East teams Depaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Seton Hall and St. John's join a combination of...
    George Washington
    Rhode Island
    Dayton
    George Mason
    VCU
    Valpo
    Butler
    William & Mary
    Old Dominian

    Just my opinion.

    Best case for us, is not the big East. IMO, it's a "loose" conference as well. Revenue will be less.

    Best case, is for big 12 to add teams - possibly some of the big east. No reason as they are not a stringly affiliated group. Big 12 has much more football identity. It needs to be proactive.

    What if ISU, KU, KSU, Baylor, and Texas join the Big East. Texas would have the .same deal as ND (Independence for Football) then a conference for the other sports

    Re: Big East move... dream scenario

    The Big East is currently negotiating contracts in the realm of 17 to 18 million per school. The money would be fine with a move there.

    Re: Big East move... dream scenario

    Villanova is not moving up bc the city won't let them build a stadium off campus and they don't have room to make their current one larger

    That whole deal is currently off the table

    Thank you!

    I'm sick of hearing people rooting for us to go to the east, dream scenario get the big 12 back to 12, improve our football team.

    This would stick a pitchfork in the wrestling and soccer teams.

    Re: Big East move... dream scenario

    Anytime I see a thread I don't want to read, I don't open it.

    I think the loss of tv money could be supplemented by donor's and attendance money if we start having consecutive 7-10 wins.
