LOL. That's pretty close to the truth I think too!

This is nothing compared to all the drama the last 10 years.

Did you just type 'Welcome to the Big East' to a UH Cougar fan? I'm sure that prompted a new thread on our board.

Well it definately shows there is a power struggle going on in the Big East. Obviously, we are not seeing a united front from the Big East.

I mean we kept getting this line, that it was the "football schools" that invited Nova. Really?!? Well then why do we have this? Everyone knows that PPL is Nova's only option, aside from Franklin Field. Is that what the football schools expected? A plan using Franklin? Doesn't add up aside from the point that some of the football schools knew ahead of time that they would never approve Nova.

My question is, why this reaction from Nova? What hope do they have going forward? Why wasn't the announcement, that they wanted to move up, Big East said no, end of story? What more could Nova do at this point? Work a deal with Franklin?

Then if not Nova, will the basketball schools allow member #18? If not, I think the split is back on the table.

Whoa re these "basketball schools" you refer to? Do you really think Notre Dame and Providence vote together? That 29-sport Georgetown has common interests with 14-sport-minimum DePaul? Does anyone remember the school whose vote allowed Rutgers and VTech in the league? St. John's.

Then again, we all know UConn, Pitt, and Louisville think alike.

Well Pitt, West Virginia, Louisville, Cincinnati and South Florida do better much. I bet TCU will, too.

Nova is really weak for a football pickup, think umass/udel would be better if your going down that road. Also, don't know why the big east needs to jump to 10, 9 or 12+ should be the format. Heck, i like bringing in st louis u, than balance everything off at 18 with 9 football school's/ 9 catholic hoops. The better plan is probably 4 five team pods with 12 football school's in the mix...or i guess the army, navy, afa, byu football only could work too.

And we would sue to high hell if that happened. One of the reasons we were booted was because of a lack of stadium control, which Nova would not have seeing as FF is Penn's. Not to mention the BE was not happy with how decrepit FF was, and it's even worse now.

St. Louis? What, Gonzaga isn't available? I'd rather take a Northeastern school like UMass, Richmond, or Holy Cross than spread the map out even further.

So I guess this doesn't bode well for Georgetown's presentation...
