    Re: Big East not giving up

    Is the Big East trying to become irrelevant in football?

    UCF. There's a winner.

    Possibily. But I can understand them going after Memphis. For basketball purposes.

    Re: Big East not giving up

    UCF, I think, is a sleeping giant in football. They have over 50,000 students and are near a major city (Orlando) which has no pro football team. They could be a force in the coming years.

    Agreed. If they were to hire Snellenberger they'd blow up.

    I would be lying if I said I was surprised.

    I agree. It also provides another FLA team to be paired with USF. Regional rival, helps recruiting, etc, etc. I think it'll be a winner.


    For "I", for "S", forever!
    For Iowa State all the way.
    Let's go! To show them what the gang's all here for,
    Go! To show them how the Cyclones cheer.
    For "I", for "S", forever!
    For Iowa State do it right!
    It's time to climb up on the vict'ry wagon,
    Fight! Iowa State, Fight! Fight!

    Re: Big East not giving up


    UCF makes sense as it is clearly the next USF. Memphis doesn't because it will do real damage to the Big East's academic profile.

    Re: Big East not giving up

    If I were them, I'd start looking at Eastern Carolina. Not a bad FB school.

    Also very weak academically. Modest FB success in weak C-USA and nothing else. Would diminish the Big East.

    Re: Big East not giving up

    Time to give Jim Williams of the Washington Examiner a little credit. He told me in the interview I did with him that those would be two of the first schools that the Big East looked to in expansion.
