I'd give my left one to get into the ACC. With our academic/research credentials, I think we could have been candidate for future expansion if our basketball had been exceptional the last 5 years and the OCS proposal was alive.

Really? Dude you'd give up your left one if UAB were to get an invite. SMDH.

We were in the Big East once, back when they called it CUSA.

It's a moot point. The Big East is not going to survive to 2014. The justification for Boise St., San Diego St., Houston, etc. to join that league keeps getting gutted. Eventually it will become the case that the football side needs more schools but the basketball schools will refuse to water down the brand any further.

The basketball side of things is going to get watered down even more. If Louisville, Cinci, and UConn leave then the top tier of the big east is gone in basketball. I've even seen rumors that the ACC could go hybrid and bring in basketball only schools (i.e. Georgetown).

All speculation. And yes, there's not one UAB fan that wouldn't jump at the invite to the Big East if it came tommorrow. Oh well. it's been fun with you guys. Good luck with the new CUSA.......

Also word is there is a $50M buyout from the ACC and that the B10 negotiations are centered around the Big 10's assistance in paying this - probably by withholding part of what would be their portion of the Big 10 Network money.

The MWC - C-USA Alliance will be stronger than the Big East. The winner of that game more times than not will be ranked ahead of old C-USA oops I mean Big East. TV knows this.
