More chatter about Memphis-UL playing at Madison Square Garden
This is from the Memphis beat writer. He's typically very accurate. Sounds like it's very possible (or probable) for next (2009-2010) season...

The ground work for Memphis's membership in the BE has started. I believe the BE is will go to 17 to avoid the split. 04-cheers

Interesting. It also looks like Louisville will be, essentially, replacing Cincinnati on their basketball schedule.

why madison square garden?? if they want a neutral site that is conducive to the fanbase of each team (and maybe they don't), i'd think nashville would make more sense.

This changes the subject just a bit, but why don't UofL and Memphis play the football game in Nashville? It is exactly three hours between each team. It seems like it would be a great venue. Or at least have a game in Memphis a game in Louisville and then a game in Nashville.

I read Duke is looking to play Xavier in NYC this season. Are they angling for that 17th spot too?

To answer both questions....no.

Neutral game sites are just lame, 'specially for two schools who have averaged
top ten attendance for the last decade or more.

I thought the rumor was Pitt-Memphis in MSG. Anyone know anything about that.

it depends on the game. memphis vs louisville in nyc is kind of lame as far as atmosphere goes, but it would be AWESOME in nashville. indiana vs kentucky was never lame. illinois vs missouri was never lame. the red river rivalry and the largest outdoor cocktail party aren't lame for football. that game would sell out in nashville, the crowd would be split down the middle, and it wouldn't be lame at all.

A Louisville / Memphis match-up is NEVER lame. Pitino and Cal could agree to meet on the moon and the fans would pack the place. MSG is one of the few arenas outside of Louisville or Memphis that is good enough to host such a clash.
Outside of Cincinnati fans no one else in the Big East understands the Louisville / Memphis rivalry. There is nothing in the Big East that can touch it.
