    Memphis joins Big East

    Doesn't really help much for football but basketball will help conference RPI.

    Looks like the Big East has given up on football.

    Re: Memphis joins Big East

    The MWC-CUSA thing is so ridiculous. With Memphis leaving they'll both have equal numbers of teams now, so it seems they'll still be essentially separate conferences but will be allowed to play an extra "championship game" on a technicality.

    I still think ECU wouldve been a good add for the big east, and despite ECU applying, the big east seems to have zero interest.

    It would have been a good football add, but they already got their big football target in Boise State. It looks like the football schools were willing to take on Memphis to keep the basketball schools happy after saddling them with SMU, Houston, and UCF.

    I am so confused as to who is in which conference now. Anyone want to make a spreadsheet that explains it?

    Re: Memphis joins Big East

    I think they are both at 8 teams now, would probably be ideal. They could even work out a rotation of cross conference regular season games. 7 conference games, 1 cross conference, 4 open dates, title game.

    As of now I think the long term MWC teams are these 8:
    Nevada
    UNLV
    Fresno State
    Hawaii
    CSU
    AFA
    NM
    Wyoming

    and I think the remaining CUSA are these 8:
    ECU
    Marshall
    Rice
    Southern Miss
    Tulane
    Tulsa
    UAB
    UTEP

    It's not like they had much for options left on the table.

    I actually think Memphis will have the biggest stadium in the league.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Memphis sucks in football, so does Big East now. I wonder how long they would have their AQ status.
