I agree. Wichita would go nicely with Tulsa coming in too.

I like the moves + pretty easy to jump to 14 with 2 eastern additions. VCU or Richmond, no need for both + X. THey would have to change the profile if they brought in a public school but one 1 or 2 out of 14 isn't a big deal. If you want to get complicated, bring in uconn if they can't get into the acc and try to sell the big 12 on football only invites to uconn and byu with espn's help assuming the big 12 is stuck at 10. I could even see byu in the new big east someday but they would need to jump to 16 with byu + 3 eastern school's. A more sensible move would bring in umass and vcu with umass sticking with the mac. Of course, the most likely outcome is they stick at 12 for awhile but VCU brings a big market and good hoops.

Richmond isn't exactly a big market

THIS. I'm at the point that I think having 2 non-FB members would be a great path fwd. We're out of options to build a better football conference (sans Tulsa & USM). We'd be very wise to be the best possible basketball conference.

It seems like a good league. I wonder how it will continue to keep its name in the spotlight from April to November, as there is the off season, and college football dominates Fall TV.

Yep I agree completely. The league needs to be a power conference in something, and since it's not going to be football lets go for basketball. With the MVC and A10 being gutted I could see those 2 being much more interested in this idea than they would have been even a few months ago.

When we renegotiate our tv contract in 2020, it may then be lucrative enough that we can pick off bball schools from the new BE as well.

We were chit on all fall during FB season, so not being mentioned is an upgrade for us.

For a few years the new BIG EAST will be very good. After a while, however, the next generation will come to see it as largely irrelevant. Unless St. Johns does what it hasn't been able to do in 20 years (get relevant again), the Garden won't be all that "alive" in March.
