Owl football teams the past two years were better than any they fielded during their previous dismal run in the conference. Of the available programs, they're a good bet in a top five market. I'm sure it's a sad day on Victory Parkway too. The folks at X believe they're an academic and athletic peer of Notre Dame, Georgetown, 'Nova and Marquette. A double whammy as the best team leaves the hapless A-10 and reality hits for X--they will not be invited to the big boy table once again.

The Owl have yet to beat a MAC team with a winning record after 5 years in the Conference. 0-5 the past 2 seasons. The MAC East has been called the worst division in FBS FB.

Troll, troll, troll your boat. I know you're butthurt, but you'll get over it 02-13-banana

Not exactly my friend. I was pretty tight with UC FB, BB players and staff during the Metro days. The two places I lived @UC -one was near Acropolis Chili and the other- Ohio Ave & McMillan. At one point, my bedroom window actually looked down into Nippert. Not exactly a troll.

RE: Temple coming to Big East?
Any word on Temple???
Last week there has an article about Boise being upset with the additions of Memphis
and Temple [they wanted more western teams].. They also have an out in their contract that would allow them to not join the BE without penalty.. That is why I think it makes sense to rethink the footprint of the league and consider East Carolina and Southern Miss..

East Carolina and Southern Miss are not in consideration now or anytime soon. If you put them anywhere other than Greenville and Hatiesburg and maybe they get a legitimate look. As long as their campuses are in those two cities, they do not add enough to the upcoming TV contract to be considered.

East Carolina and Southern Miss just scream out "Mid Major"

I guess Gainesville with the 163rd TV would leave UF out. More to the picture than local media market size.

Boise can cry and go home, I hope they do eventually. Marshall and UMass are better fits than ECU and Southern Miss because they are in the footprint of the conference. Fight for a football playoff and make basketbal strong.

You are really going to compare UF to Southern Miss and ECU? UF has a large market that extends outside Gainesville, USM and ECU, not so much. When it comes to the current expansion of the Big East, market size is by far one of the most important factors.

Temple's (reported) Big East Deal:
MAC gets $6 million, Big East gets Temple football for 2012
Temple gets $2.5 million loan from BE
A10 gets a year's notice and $1 million
Temple plays 2 hoop games vs. MAC teams and one football game vs. a MAC team (presumably UMass this season)

I hope this was some attempt at humor.
