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.

MB, some of your posts never cease to amaze me (wishful thinking?). If you really think the new CUSA will be on equal ground with the Big East you're more delusional and butthurt than I thought. TV contracts alone will be a major part of the seperation. And as far as us sucking in football, it must really p!ss you off to have your team have their @sses handed to them to the tune of 46-9 by this team that's gonna suck so bad. Don't know how you and the few other UAB fans feel about the future of ya'll's football program, but us Memphis fans with Fuente leading the way, we are actually excited about our future. And as far as Memphis being middle of the pack in basketball, well, now you're just showing your ignorance and butthurt from being left behind. Damn dude, I can expect such a dumb post from some butthurt UAB fans but not you, I always thought you were smarter than that. But hey, no need to argue, after our 2 basketball games Memphis and UAB will be a thing of the past. I wish you all well in your new CUSA. Peace.

I never said the Big East was equal to new CUSA. I've actually said Cusa is on the par with the Atlantic Sun now. However in terms of money distribution, under the new contract they are equal. TV contracts aren't going to be as great as you think. While the league might be better in basketball, overall, it's not as great as deal as Memphis fans think.

Memphis is great at recruiting players, but as much as I like Pastner, he hasn't shown that he can handle them. The only thing he can handle seems to be reporters laptops. Once they are in the Big East, I wish them the best, and may even support them a little, but knowing how Memphis fans handle losses, I see a lot of angst in the future.

MB, you and I have had our little back n forths for some time now, but honestly, you aight in my book. You and Smaug are some of my favorite posters. I actually feel for UAB and some (not all) of their fans. Your school is fighting a losing, uphill battle, being under the heavy arm of the BOT. Our schools times on the athletic fields and court is coming to an end, no need to pick at each other any longer. Memphis is going in a new direction, one that Tiger fans are excited about, and one that we hope is successful. As I said before, good luck to UAB in the new CUSA.....GO TIGERS

Whatever. Have fun with the old dominions and the USTA's of the world. Like I said, good luck in the new CUSA and Brittney, ya'll are gonna need it.

UTSA has had a better year than both UAB and Memphis... They are 7-4 and may actually get to a bowl game if there are not enough 6-6 teams...

You are talking to a Memphis fan about football. For Memphis fans, the move to the Big East is all about basketball and I am sure that is what he was referencing in his post.

Folks, as much as I dislike UAT and the BOT, I do not think they would block us from going to a BCS conference if such a thing ever came to be. I think they might stand in our way if it involved an invitation to the same BCS conference as them, but not otherwise.

I don't think even the BOT is stupid enough to block UAB (and therefore the system) from getting that kind of money.

RE: NBR: More Conference Re-Alignment?
Block the growth and you don't have to worry about the other. If UAB were sitting here with about three bowl wins, a new 30k seat stadium and averaging 25-30 a game they would already be in the Big East. That said the Big East appeal is dwindling by the hour and the basketball schools are pretty ticked. The Alliance might be the better option in the long run. I can see a Big Easy split with basketball and football going their separate ways becoming more and more a reality as time goes on. Then again I could be and often am wrong. Lol

RE: NBR: More Conference Re-Alignment?
If the basketball school ditched the Big East what do y'all think Memphis would do? I have a mind to say they should leave with the basketball schools and find another home for football. To Memphis fans the move may be about basketball, but lets be honest, its always about football and money. The days of conferences being aligned on academics, or any other sports are coming to an end.
