A Visual Aid
Below is the composition of what is expected to be the Big East Conference and Alliance (football memberships, only. To date, I had not seen a side by side comparison of the two memberships, so here it is). They obviously have some differences and some similarities. With the absence of automatic qualification, and the fact that these two compositions will be "created" at roughly the same time, it is safe to presume that these two conferences will be direct competitors during television contract negotiations. How will the networks value them?

RE: A Visual Aid
Can you switch the alliances X and Z- to make it closer to the east/west?

also- you left out Rice and Colorado St from the alliance.

RE: A Visual Aid
the thing that sticks out to me- even if the Big East was just this group only for hoops- they would still be comfortably ahead of the alliance in hoops. You'd have Memphis, San Diego St, UConn, Louisville, and Cincy... Alliance only has New Mexico, UNLV, and So Miss(this year at least)...

You've left Rice and Colorado State off our list.

Indeed. Changes coming.

RE: A Visual Aid
I've made the changes. My apologies to Rice and CSU, it was completely unintentional.

It is difficult to determine how the divisional boundaries will be drawn for the Big East, but I gave it my best guess.

I'd say the merger either needs to add no one or try to add Temple and whichever F_U you prefer and move UTEP west. Pretty much dependent on does Temple want to join. Without Temple I don't see any reason to add 2 other teams.

RE: A Visual Aid
football-
Big East in the east has a decent advantage. Louisville and Cincy cancel out Southern Miss and Tulsa. Uconn and ECU cancel out. Left with USF, Rutgers, and Navy vs Tulane, UTEP, UAB, Marshall, Rice. Fairly big advantage BE there.
west though is where the killing happens. No body in alliance west has answer for Boise at all. They just don't. And the thing is teams 2-4- big East has huge advantages as well....

Likely that Louisville joins the B12 and AFA replaces them in BE football... then the alliance might move UTEP to the west and add an eastern/central team to their eastern division.
