    Tank. There are two things that you need to get your head around 1) CU has a strong basketball program that is likely headed to the Big East and 2) you are going to hear about the program every season for as long as you live in Omaha. If you can't get your head around that, Council Bluffs is a short commute down the road so you can always head back in the direction you came from. I'm sure you won't be missed by your neighbors.

    Re: Creighton to Big East?

    I haven't attended a Creighton game in the year + that I have lived here, but the thought of some bigger name commodity schools playing here does perk my interest and would probably draw me out for a few games.

    Re: Creighton to Big East?

    Creighton is crazy to play in the Big East, the travel will kill the players as will the competition. As for CSU, pair them with BYU and add them to the Big 12.

    Re: Creighton to Big East?

    I kind of hope they don't get picked. I think Creighton fans are a bit too smug for my tastes.

    Re: Creighton to Big East?

    If you want to see Creighton fans have a comeuppance, you should want them to make the switch.

    Re: Creighton to Big East?

    I would think that they would add a NDSU, SDSU, or Western Ill. because of their inclusion in the football conference.

    Re: Creighton to Big East?

    They would have to if they are offered. It is not high risk/high reward. It is high risk/guaranteed reward. Yes, they could miss out on some tourneys. I have heard numbers in the neighborhood of increasing athletic revenue by 10x.
    From an ISU perspective, it would be great to have a near by non-conference opponent from an upper tier basketball conference.

    Dakotas do not add enough value to make up for the location, imo

    Belmont
    Denver (Supposedly turned down)
    ORU
    UWM

    Re: Creighton to Big East?

    Can always add UNO from the Summit League (swap one Omaha team for another).

    Sounds about right for Trev Alberts - drop football and wrestling to go D-I and then skip out on the conference that gave them their break.

    Not my first time living in Omaha. The last time I was here though, nobody gave a crap about Creighton and it was glorious...

    Meh... The talk is the same on the Iowa side of the river.

    I hope Creighton goes so that they'll drop back into irrelevant status.
