Not sure if they will come but I would like to get Temple back on the Football Schedule for ECU. We have played in the past and Philly gives ECU fans a very driveable OOC game plus we have a ton of alumni in Washington DC metro and NJ/NYC area.

MAC TV deal was 1.1 million last year. CUSA is around 15-16 million per year.

no idea what the Alliance will look like TV wise though.

Didn't realize the disparity. Of course, CUSA has now been gutted of its largest markets, and who knows what the Alliance will bring.

Temple is likely not going to spend 2.5 million dollars to go all in to a conference which would at least double their travel expenses, pull down their hoops profile, and most likely not being ok with a 0$ buyout.

CUSA is not interested in a FB Only member.

Relevant discussions on the Temple message boards:

http://temple.rivals.com/showmsg.asp?fid...18&style=2

http://mbd.scout.com/mb.aspx?s=186&f=3506&t=8624858

The fan reaction seems mixed but there are a number who think joining CUSA or a merged CUSA-MWC would be a good move, even for basketball. An interesting wrinkle is that leaving the MAC would free Temple of its obligation to play a certain number of OOC basketball games with MAC teams, allowing it to upgrade its OOC schedule.

That is a good point about getting out of the MAC BB scheduling agreement.

My insiders say that the alliance would be receptive to a football only in Temple's cast just because they value the large media market they provide that much.

It's funny- I think the alliance showing interest in Temple, with Temple showing interest back, may be the quickest way to get Temple in the Big East. Temple would be the last market with a viable team that the Alliance could take in a good market.

Another thought I'm having is that if Air Force will be needed in 2013 to balance divisions (whether Pitt/Syracuse are gone or not) that in 2015 when Navy comes on board Temple might be the right #14 school as they further enhance basketball.

East: Cincinnati, Temple, Rutgers, UConn, Navy, USF, USF
West: SDSU, Boise, Air Force, SMU, Houston, Memphis, Louisville

Now if Louisville leaves by 2015 as some are speculating the BE may never get to 14 full football members and there might or might not be room for Temple at the Inn.

Adding Temple, even if it is FB only...would give the East part of the merger a FB only to go along with Hawaii on the west side. It could allow the Merger to go to 18, with two 9 team FB divisions but 8 all sports programs that could play just within the division for travel purposes.

Add La Tech in all sports to the East, move UTEP to the West and you are done.

If AFA leaves, then you don't have to add any all-sports members; you can have two 7-team divisions for sports other than football:

East: Marshall, ECU, UAB, USM, Tulane, Rice, Tulsa, Temple

West: UTEP, UNM, CSU, Wyoming, UNLV, Nevada, Fresno, Hawaii
