Sounds like Temple is a done deal for football for 2012, but probably not for the other sports until 2013. CBS reporting it.

I wish they could somehow figure out a way to pay the 2 million to the A-10 to get it done, but as long as the FB is good to go, I guess that's all that matters.
I'm excited to have another hometown team to watch UC games at.

RE: Temple coming to Big East?
For those who need a map Brett spells it out perfectly...

With Temple on board in 2012, the Big East’s football membership this fall will consist of Cincinnati, UConn, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, South Florida, Syracuse and Temple. The 15-team basketball membership in 2012-13 will consist of: Cincinnati, UConn, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, South Florida, Syracuse, DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Notre Dame, Providence, Seton Hall, St. John’s and Villanova.

The league will look much different in the 2013-14 school year. The football league could consist of up to 14 schools: Boise State, Cincinnati, UConn, Houston, Louisville, Memphis, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, San Diego State, SMU, South Florida, Syracuse, Temple and UCF. However, Pittsburgh and Syracuse, who are scheduled to leave for the ACC in 2014, want to exit the Big East in 2013. If they do leave early, it would drop the football membership to 12 schools.

If Pittsburgh and Syracuse remain in the Big East until 2014, the Big East's basketball league in 2013-14 would consist of 20 teams: Cincinnati, UConn, Houston, Louisville, Memphis, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, South Florida, SMU, Syracuse, Temple, UCF, DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Notre Dame, Providence, Seton Hall, St. John’s and Villanova. That number would be reduced to 18 basketball members if Pittsburgh and Syracuse left early.

Also, Navy will join the Big East as a football-only member in 2015.

RE: Temple coming to Big East?
I think the ACC recruited Syracuse and Pitt out of jealousy of always hearing how the current Big East is the greatest college basketball conference ever assembled. I don't see where either team bolsters ACC football that much. And I think moving to the ACC will slightly hurt them in basketball because Duke and UNC are the dominant teams which I don't see changing that much. I think being in the Big East and being northeastern schools, that Big East recruiting was better than recruiting to the ACC will be for both teams.

West Virginia might get left in the dust moving out to the B12. They are solid in both sports, but not top 10 material in any year.

The addition of Boise and Houston, both top 15 teams last year in football, will more than compensate for the losses of the 3 above teams. The addition of Memphis and Temple will definitely re-strengthen basketball.

I actually am starting to like the new Big East better than the current Big East, and I never thought I'd say that.

If you put them anywhere other than Greenville and Hatiesburg and maybe they get a legitimate look. As long as their campuses are in those two cities, they do not add enough to the upcoming TV contract to be considered.

I guess Gainesville with the 163rd TV would leave UF out. More to the picture than local media market size.

I hope this was some attempt at humor.

Obviously, unless you're from Newport/Covington.

ACC didn't add either to bolster anything....in football cuse/pitt bring nothing to the table to the ACC which already has it's "power programs" Miami, FSU, Clemson, Gtech.

Cuse obviously is a great add for hoops (pitt to much lesser degree) but the ACC already has great name brand hoops recognition.

They added them for two reasons:

1. To destroy the BE
2. To help them sustain any losses they might incure to other conferences....right before the adding of cuse/pitt it was swirling FSU/Clemson to the SEC....

so they were preemptive...and killed two birds with one stone. They hurt the BE and at the same time, made it so if they lose two to a better conference they are still in good shape.

Power Play...hats off to the ACC for having the balls to pull it off
