    A big pile of Meh for me. The writer is only giving his opinion.

    No I won't. Too much CF stuff to do today. I've been wrapped up in meetings and am swamped.

    You're right. It is one man's opinion.

    Re: Big East writer refutes ISU rumor

    A PO'd Providence writer who is mad because they don't offer football. Does he honestly think the Big East survives this if they don't expand.

    It was strictly his opinion without any real knowledge.

    None the less good find. But him talking to the Giggler only feeds into the Gigglers scheme. Finding people who will agree with him that ISU has nothing to offer, I bet this guy doesn't get interrupted the whole time. If it was the guy from the Washington Examiner the Giggler wouldn't let him finish a sentence because he would be going against the Gigglers views.

    Re: Big East writer refutes ISU rumor

    The telling line is this:

    According to McNamara, who recently wrote the book entitled “Basketball Warfare: Life in the Big East Conference,” the league’s prestigious basketball schools would more than likely jet.
    “They aren’t going to have a 20 team basketball league,” McNamara said. “What kind of a conference tournament do you have with 20 teams? It is impossible. Villanova, Georgetown, Providence and St. Johns don’t want to be in the same league as Iowa State and Kansas State. I can guarantee you that. It is a football decision.”
    It's the basketball members that aren't happy with this, and might want to break away to form their own conference (or join the A-10). Most of the Big East fans would be more than happy for the basketball-only schools to leave anyway. That also, IMO, leaves the Big East in a prime position to begin picking at the ACC.

    He seems to be going off of "tradition" which we have all found out means pretty much nothing right about now.

    Exactly. This is a journalist's opinion. I've stopped trusting them a long time ago.

    Re: Big East writer refutes ISU rumor

    I can understand McNamara's point, but FB pays the bills, and the Big East is not going to make it much longer as a BCS AQ with only 8 teams. Especially if the Pac-16 comes along and starts pressuring for 2 AQ bids, which we know they will eventually do.

    The Big East needs some more credible FB teams, and if a few BB only programs bail in the process, I think they'll be forced to accept it...

    I guess I am listening to KGGO after 4 then, because I can't do Perrault solo laughing at ISU.
