OrangeCrush is a Nova alum posing as a Cuse fan, so dont take his denigration of Temple too seriously.

They have a severe case of student apathy Urban school

If their students and alumni cared at all about sports, they could be a good athletic school. Problem is, they don't have that in their culture.

Sounds like most of Conference USA Football.

Dallas, Houston, Memphis, New Orleans, Birmingham, El Paso. Big cities but no one cares about the respective schools football teams. which on a tangent: this is why ECU fans always harp on market size isnt the best indicator. some have shown potential (UTEP avg 47k their first year in CUSA) but most have just hovered around the 20-30k mark.

UTEP isnt really a big market, unless your adding cities across the border in Mexico :-). They function in that town as the only thing to do, which is why they do relatively well at the gate in basketball and football.

The current rumor posted on the CUSA board is Temple, TCU, AFA, and CSU going to CUSA, with 2 8-team divisions and one crossover game. Who knows? But there seems to be a whole lot going on behind the scene evidently...too many rumors from what posters are saying are sources that, while not 100% accruate, do provide good info.

ESPN is driving this again...the lesson MWC is learning is don't pizz off ESPN.

We do have a better TV contract and more market exposure. Lesson learned...don't F with The Mouse.

Wouldn't it make the most sense for Conference USA to make a major move to grab (if interested) TCU, Air Force, Army, Navy, Temple, and BYU or another MWC school?
