All this talk of us going to a BCS conference won't ever happen - even if they have no direct control over it, the BOT down the road will not allow that to happen.

I go to games to watch MY team play.

Besides, most people (outside the Big East, of course) are wondering how long they keep that AQ status.

Once they lose it (and they will), they'll be CUSA again in everything but name.

They have already lost with the new playoff system. They are lumped in with C-USA, sun belt, mwc, mac, and big east with the highest finishing team from these leagues getting a bid to a bcs bowl.

No one is talking about a BCS conference. Talking about the Big East, which is no longer a major conference. Memphis just made a lateral move. They'll suck in football there and be middle of the pack in basketball.

Not sure it's lateral yet. And even if it is, Memphis wouldn't be middle of the pack in basketball because they aren't middle of the pack in CUSA, right? I think most Memphis fans are ready for a change, even if it does prove to be less than what was expected at the time. CUSA has just gotten stale for me.

RE: NBR: More Conference Re-Alignment?
I am not sold that joining the BE is going to improve their lives in BB or FB. BE is no longer an AQ conference in FB, and to be honest with the potential loss of Rutgers (and the rumors of Cincy & Louis staying alive regarding the B12) I think we have to seriously question the sustainability of the BE in FB. I don't doubt Memphis's talent in BB. I don't like them, but I know they are good. But the big east is a pretty big step from CUSA BB over the past few years. I think Memphis is in for a rude awakening once they have to play a lot more high quality teams than what they would face in CUSA even if the others were staying.
The big winner on this is UAB, in BB (our conference schedule got a bit easier), and the teams moving up to CUSA. That being said, if UAB got the invite when UM got it, I would think we would take it too.

Considering that Memphis has struggled to beat Christian Brothers and Samford, they better be glad they are in CUSA this year. Maybe it is just religious schools they struggle with. Lots of Catholic schools in the Big East.
