It's so hard to believe it's been five years since all of this started.

In the summer of '03, we were so sure that we'd be going with Cincinnati and Louisville to the Big East. There was simply no way they could turn down that package deal, we all thought.

But USF got the invite, and it was a kick to the gut that many of us still haven't recovered from.

If there are indeed teeth to this rumor......man, I can't even begin to imagine it just yet.

We've wanted this for quite a while now.

lol...you act like it's going to be announced in the next few mins...Fox Memphis is saying that Memphis and the Big East are talking...that's all.

i talk to people every day...i would like to think Memphis will be added to the Big East...but it doesn't happen overnight.

but this is a very good sign...baby steps.

Go Tigers!!!

ECU's AD and Coach did not comment either, but yet terms of negotitions were leaked. This is going to be pretty interesting over the next couple of days, because if this stuff is to be believed then it looks like both schools are being considered.

SF Husky Wrote:If Memphis comes, it better come with the Liberty Bowl. It wouldn't be bad if Memphis offered the same deal ECU did just to get in.

I would think this would be a given that if Memphis came to the BE that the BE would soon replace CUSA in the LB. The LB definitely wants to keep the SEC happy and bringing in a BCS opponent would sweeten the deal for the SEC.

Like I said on the Memphis board. This is truly great news. Let's consider this is true and wheels are in motion. Does this mean a split is coming or is it a one and done situation?

I never did see why Memphis didn't come in with UC and UofL. All 3 were huge rivals.

It's a pity it's not downstream on the Mississippi. Memphis may eventually float down to the Gulf. 05-stirthepot
