    Tulsa moving to Old Big East

    Jeremy Fowler, CFB Insider for CBS Sports reports that Tulsa is about to be invited to become the 12th team of the Old Big East conference:
    Old Big East expected to move on adding C-USA's Tulsa - CBSSports.com

    Its a great opportunity for the Golden Hurricanes, but I'd personally be a whole lot happier if they were to join the Big 12. Who knows what is next in realignment, though. TCU came from the Mountain West via the Big East, so could Tulsa would be in position to do likewise?

    Tulsa is not even 4,500 students. No way they'd ever join the Big 12. TCU was even a stretch for the B12. If they hadn't won a rose bowl recently we probably wouldn't have taken them either

    Re: Tulsa moving to Old Big East

    Can we just call this conference "Conference USA Lite" ?

    That sounds right. I guess that works, since they are neither big, nor are they directionally identifiable.

    Are you kidding? You're kidding right? There's no way that's a serious statement.

    How soon would this take effect I wonder? Even if not next year we effectively play UNI as our only non-BCS conference game

    Who is your 12th for the conference? Florida Gulf Coast? NDSU?

    Um, to join, you have to get invited. There will never, ever be an invite for Tulsa.

    Re: Tulsa moving to Old Big East

    Why don't they just keep calling this Conference USA?

    Its accurate on so many levels.
