    I like it. There's no reason for there to be about 120 teams with about 60 "out" and 60 "in". The status quo is what is stupid.

    Something like this should have happened over a decade ago imho.

    I'm sorry, but I don't think the BigEast would agree to that. Too much money to split with worthless teams.

    Also I don't like the idea of having conferences that big. The NCAA is going to have to make some major changes to football or this will never stop and it will eventually lead to the major schools breaking away from the NCAA.

    If we raid the Big East like I think we will, that will leave them with only crappy football teams. What choice will they have?

    If the Big East loses WV & Louisville to us (and maybe even Cincy), or UConn/Rutgers to ACC, they will be about on par with CUSA and inferior to MWC. Definitely inferior to MWC on the football field and likely equal or lower in financial clout.

    They're talking about adding, Army, Navy, Temple, and promoting Vilanova. At that point you can't thumb your nose up at anyone but the Sun Belt. The MWC teams would be the class of this whole thing in football if WVU is gone.

    Totally agree. Make this happen and fast


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Colorado comes back to the Big 12 if Mizz leaves, but only if they leave.

    No thanks. WVU, Louisville and BYU are better than CU. UC and south Florida aren't far behind, but they would want to be here.

    This is a feature discussion on ESPN-U right now. This thing might have legs.

    Wait the Big 12 has a plan. Are you sure about that.
