    Jay. There's one thing you need to get your head around. This is Cyclone Fanatic. So **** off

    Re: Creighton to Big East?

    As communicated during the Big East press conference earlier this morning, Creighton University will resign from the Missouri Valley Conference membership effective June 30, 2013.

    Creighton has been a valued member of the Conference for many years. We respect the decision by the University to resign from the MVC, and we wish them well in their future athletic endeavors.

    I want to be clear in stating that the Missouri Valley Conference is not defined by any one institution. The Valley’s history has shown, time and again, that it finds the strength, resources, competitive determination, and leadership to rise to higher levels at times of change. We will continue to be a great basketball and all-sports league, as we have been since our founding in 1907.

    The MVC Presidents Council will continue to chart the future course of the Conference and has been proactively engaged in evaluating membership options.

    Doug Elgin
    Commissioner

    Re: Creighton to Big East?

    We should get Creighton on the schedule. Would be a good chance for an equal partnership with home and homes now that they are in a big boy conference.


    Rhoads out!

    Re: Creighton to Big East?

    I'm happy to see some big names heading to town to play. I do think Greg has to be nervous. He was going to have to work to make sure he didnt drop off once Dougie leaves anyway. Now hes potentially back in a situation where he has struggled before - having to recruit and coach with the big boys. The next couple years will be big for the Jays, as Nebbie seems like they might be poised for improvement just down the road. If Creighton struggles that could get interesting.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Don't worry Tank. There are some folks in Omaha who need to talk about something other than the latest person who's been killed in the last couple days.

    Fixed it for you... Only 3 of the "Catholic 7" have won shares of the Big East title in the last 20 years.

    Lets not act like UConn, Syracuse, Louisville, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Notre Dame are coming along.

    Welcome back Giggles... you have not been missed.

    Re: Creighton to Big East?

    If Creighton thinks they are going to join the Big East and have anywhere near the same success they have had in the MWC, they are delusional. Not only with GMac have to recruit with the big boys out East, he has to try and get Big East level talent to come to Omaha to play at a small private school like Creighton.

    At least Hoiberg has ISU with some history in the Big 12 and history recruiting in MI and out East. There are kids in NY who don't even know where Nebraska is, much less have they heard of Creighton.

    Can't wait for Creighton to get stomped year after year. Oh, it's going to happen.

    This is such a stupid criticism of the Big East move and I keep seeing it. They are also getting games vs. Georgetown, Marquette, Butler, and Xavier. You're telling me that top end isn't more exciting than Wichita St. and UNI? The DePaul's and Providence's are taking the place of your Evansville's and Drake's and on that front, I'd say they are also an improvement over the MVC.

    Criticize this for the reasons that are actually valid: Illogical geography/travel and the fact that they'll struggle to keep competitive, killing interest in their program.

    CUJay. There are two things that you need to get your head around 1) CU's strength as a basketball program is directly proportional to the strength of the MVC which is to say that it is unremarkable compared to the Catholic 7 2) Tank will hear about that program less and less if it leaves the MVC while he lives in Omaha.

    Yeah, they will make a decent amount of money, but they will end up around the level that Providence is at right now at best.
