So you are saying you would like BYU to be considered?

Now that we already selected TCU....the "biggest name schools" left are Boise State and BYU.....but they are a little West even by TCU standards.

However, there has been talk on here if BYU and BSU were game....it could be done....on a football only basis.

Central Florida barely averages 30,000 fans to football games and 5,000 fans to basketball games. This is a program that just won is first every bowl game for chrissakes. You guys should really set your sights higher.

Pathetic.


My sentiments exactly.

UCF record in 2010, their best season ever:
vs. teams with winning records: 1-3
vs. teams from BCS conferences: 1-2
Again, this performance is the best in their history.

UCF record since 2005 against teams from BCS conferences: 2-17

UCF TV market: smaller than all but 3 of the 17 Big East TV markets. And they are only the 4th most popular school in that market.


The fact that they are even discussed still mystifies me. The fact of the matter is that now that TCU is on board, there are zero schools out there that make sense for the Big East (with the exception of schools that would turn down a bid). Any expansion at the present moment would be a drunken, desperate, bid to get to 10 football teams with no regard to the quality of their programs.

Oh no! We've been exposed! Surely the Big East Presidents and AD's who read this board will be swayed by this thread! We're doomed!

It would help if you did research before trashing a school. Your lack of meaningful conclusions based on crappy or nonexistent evidence is "pathetic."

Look forward to the field trip to Provo next year.
