Thanks for the input.
Ohio will bus its football team anywhere to save a couple of bucks. I heard that we bussed to Wyoming a few years ago.
I don't think any of the MAC schools are going to gamble on the football alliance just yet. If the alliance is successful signing a big TV contract and landing some nice bowl games that might be a different story.
Temple may be heading to the Big East soon and UMass might be in the Big East within 5 years once UConn leaves. There is no point in changing conferences too often (like TCU) when the end destination is the BE.
