Expansion to 12
Saint Louis University and 1 Northeastern school would be great.

SLU to me right now is a non starter. Not until they can get back to being even competitive.

Agreed. You need 2 and there just aren't 2 right now that make sense together. No need to expand right now.

RE: Expansion to 12
at first i was very much in favor of going to 12, now i really like the round robin and dont feel as strongly about it. Although if we do go to 12 i feel like SLU belongs despite their BB record.

I'm not saying that SLU has to be even an NCAA tourney team. But they have to prove that last year was a fluke and they aren't going to be a terrible add on the court.

I dont think anyone has stood out enough to encourage the BE to expand or to say we have to have school A.

10 is working and since the BE doesnt NEED to go to 12 at this point it probably shouldnt

like I've said, where the Big East I think almost would be forced to go to 12 would be if the Big 12 does expand up to 12. At that point-
ACC 15
SEC 14
Big Ten 14
Pac 12 12
Big 12 12
A10 14
AAC 11
MWC 11

So 9 of the other 10 conferences would be at more than 10. Having more than 10 does help getting teams in the tourney.

Wait until the FB conferences sort themselves out and then see what's available. Don't jump too soon.

Unless and until UConn wants to come on board, three are no imminent candidates.
