If you believe that, I've got some beach front property you may be interested in for sale in West Virginia.

Air Force AD was on record and said he turned down the B12. What more proof do you need? This is not something out of a blog or guy posting something on this board.

There are many reasons why people don't want to go to the B12. For one, some schools aren't looking forward to be Whorn's 9th biatch. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

Yep. I don't know where EERSFAN has been all summer, but AFA went public with the reasons why they turned down the B12.

Hey there...Give EERSFAN a break. He's like me. We have been very busy with our own expansion drama all summer...04-cheers

So the Big East is going to get two teams that the Big XII wanted? Interesting. If Pitt, Cuse, and WVU had not panicked, the Big East could have been a very powerful conference. Oh well....

More on BYU.

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/70019....html?pg=1

"At the end of the day, the Big East has done everything to accommodate whatever it is that BYU wanted," Williams added. "But it's really going to be up to the (BYU's) Board of Trustees as to whether or not that's what they want. No matter how well you charm them, or how well you give them whatever they want, it really comes down to whether or not the Board of Trustees feels this is in the best long-term interest of the university. My understanding is that BYU is willing to accept an invitation. It was told to me that if it were up to (athletic director Tom Holmoe) and (President Cecil O. Samuelson), they would be in. But it's not. It really is up to whether the Board of Trustees give them the okay."

Sorry but a conference that is so desperate they could be willing to do anything for BYU and being more competitive for a team like AF does not make you sound like a great conference. Seriously one is "the other conference is too hard"!

That's what we heard about BYU and the Big 12, that Holmoe and Samuelson presented a proposal and recommended that BYU accept, but they didn't.

Name your sources before claiming credibility.

To be fair, if reporters had to name their sources when dealing with private negotiations, either (1) they wouldn't be sources anymore or (2) there would be nothing to write about. This applies to all types of news whether it's sports, business or politics. If we want inside information that isn't authorized to get out to the public, it comes with the territory. No source is going to let himself/herself be named in an ongoing negotiation.

BYU did not turn down the Big12....Big12 turned them down because of their tv contract.

Air Force turned Big12 down because they did not feel thay they could compete

I seriously doubt that BYU will ever end up in the BE.. They want to be in the Notre Dame Conference... or they are still negotiating with the Big XII still and trying to use the BE for leverage... just never know.01-wingedeagle

This. Dismissing a journalist because they don't name their sources is beyond ridiculous...it's how they get information. If they're frequently incorrect, then dismiss them. If they're frequently right, credit them.


I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the source familiar with UCF's dealings with the Big East was either Iliana Limón or her source.
