    Conference musical chairs

    1. Word getting out that Temple will probably be in the "West" Division of the Big East with Boise State, San Diego State, Houston, Southern Methodist, and Memphis.

    Temple likely to be in Big East's West Division - Philly.com

    2. The Mountain-West/Conference USA megaconference-alliance will indeed split into 4 pods. That means they will either go with 20 or 24 teams. Utah State, San Jose State have received visits from the commish. UNC-Charlotte being mentioned as a candidate now along with FIU as eastern candidates.

    "The Big East football conference will consist of Temple, Rutgers, Louisville, Syracuse, Cincinnati, Connecticut, South Florida, and Pittsburgh next season.
    Pitt and Syracuse will leave for the Atlantic Coast Conference as early as 2013. The Big East then will add Boise State and San Diego State for football only for the 2013 season. At the same time, Memphis, Houston, Southern Methodist, and Central Florida will join as all-sports members."



    This conference is a joke. Can we take away AQ status please.

    Sounds likely that AQ status will be done away with anyways with this new 4 team playoff. All teams not involved in the playoff will be locked into contracts with existing "BCS" bowls. That means the current bowls will look something like this

    Rose: Big 10/Pac 12
    Fiesta: Big 12/Pac 12
    Cotton: Big 12/SEC
    Sugar: SEC/Big10
    Orange: ACC/SEC

    The Big East champ will probably end up in something like the Cap 1 or Outback bowl and that bowl will probably have the choice of the Big East champ or Notre Dame.
