    Big East Football

    After the last few years and the first week of this year, can we please remove the BCS AQ from the Big East. They are a disaster. Give it to the MWC or the top non-AQ.

    Re: Big East Football

    I hear you, but at least Big East schools played some respectable schools this weekend. The ACC was a punkfest! Over the last five years, I don't see a huge gap between the Big East and ACC in football. Maybe both could get a special designation: "Non-threatening AQs" - where each league is guaranteed a BCS spot in an irrelevant game, with no chance of the championship game...against each other.

    lol, you are right about the ACC.

    The Big East was 1 and 4 against 1A opponents, with that with being against Akron.

    But the mountain west isn't worthy because they schedule is too easy??

    and the MWC will be nothing when BYU and Utah are gone. The Boise State, TCU, and Colorado State conference is not that impressive.

    Re: Big East Football

    Watch out for Syracuse, they could be a darkhorse Big East championship contender this year. Just two years after Greg Robinson left, and a couple ~115th-ranked recruiting classes later they are on a mission to destroy the conference and lay claim to a trip to the Sugar Bowl. The Akron Zips walked into a trap game in week one, they still don't know what hit them.

    Syracuse moved to 1-0 for the first time since 2003 with a 29-3 win over Akron at InfoCision Stadium on Saturday night.

    The last time Syracuse was 1-0 in football, "Shake Ya Tailfeather" by Nelly, P.Diddy, and Murphy was the #1 song in the country.

    Re: Big East Football

    Is it ironic that Iowa State fans are the fan base talking about which conference is or isn't AQ status...Also the Big East was the one conference that would take us in.

    Re: Big East Football

    I was surprised at how bad UCONN looked at Michigan. Cincy was up 14-0 on Fresno St. and then just fell apart.

    The Big East looks pretty wide open but whoever wins it is probably going to get smoked in a BCS bowl

    Fresno State (Most wins against BCS conferences) and Nevada help a lot.

    Yea but compare Pitt, Cincy, S. Florida, Rutgers. and the rest of the Big East to MWC
    Its close but let us not bash the conference that will take us, KU and KSU. if the big 12 were to die.

    The Big East or the MWC would take us? MWC would be far more likely.

    In full out armageddon the Big East doesn't even exist to take anybody, would you be pumped about joining a Big East without UConn, West Virginia, Rutgers, and possibly Louisville or Cincy?

    The MWC will at least still exist if the Pac 10 commissioner's wet dreams come true. Big 12 and Big East would have 6 teams combined and be begging conf USA teams to join them to make 8-12 team league. I'll take tacking us onto a MWC with national title contenders in football over a league with zero football tradition.

    The Mountain West never once said they were interested. They had interest in the kansas teams and Mizzou but never had ISU on that list. And if we stick with KU KSU. they have basketball programs that would die in the MWC. Big East far better option.

    I agree with you as the world is today, but if the Pac 10 commissioner gets his wish, the Big East will consist of 2 or 3 FBS football teams at most.

    Perhaps a pro-active move to the Big East could work (maybe already too late) but if the Big Ten and Pac Ten make real moves to 14 or 16 the Big East is going to be destroyed by Big Ten, ACC and SEC expansion. A reformed Big 12-MWC hybrid has a better chance at survival than the Big East, big east basketball schools become a non-football hoops conference in the 4-mega-16 scenario.

    Want to hitch your wagon to Cincinnati and maybe Louisville, then add 5-6 CUSA and Mac teams? Or would you rather go with a 9 team conference that already has a couple national title contending football programs?

    Things either stay generally like they are now, or there is no Big East, certainly no Big East with Pitt, West Virginia, Rutgers and UConn.

    I wish we could stop talking about this, but we have the Pac Ten commissioner popping a massive boner about four 16 team conferences on national TV last night.

    Maybe you're right. but i would like to think that if Us (big 12 leftovers) Thats 4 to 5 schools if you want to include Baylor were to join the big east that would be a good conference.
    Big East + KU KSU ISU MIZ. and ECU maybe Baylor= Decent conference
