RE: NY Times: Nationwide NBE May Be The Only Hope
First off, the NBE is surviving period. It's dumb as hell to say it's not going to. If it was going to have problems, it'd have already manifested itself in the first few years. But the conference has gotten better- and totally eclipsed the A10 and AAC.

Also, it's easy to see why Gonzaga would be interested. The WCC is putrid. They had a team this year that was 68 spots worse in RPI than Tulane! or 54 spots worse than St John's. They had 6 teams sub 200 this year- after 3 last year and 1 2 years ago. Gone in RPI from 9 to 11 to 13. But that's not reason enough for the Big East to expand....

Homer is clearly obsessed and troubled in a sick way with the Big East. Between making weird anti-Big East banners, creating anti-Big East topics and spewing the same anti-Big East mumbo jumbo in numerous discussions, there is some serious captivation and fixation on seeing the downfall of the league and it's schools.

Move on...

RE: NY Times: Nationwide NBE May Be The Only Hope
NBE

NORTH DIVISION: Providence, *UConn*, St. John's, Seton Hall
EAST DIVISION: Villanova, Georgetown, Xavier, *Cincinnati*
MIDWEST DIVISION: Depaul, Marquette, Butler, Creighton
WEST DIVISION: *Gonzaga*, *BYU*, *St. Mary's*, *San Diego St.*

18-game conference schedule. 6 games (H-H) against the 3 schools in your division; 12 games against the rest of the conference (1 game per year, rotating home-away).

To limit travel costs and concerns, structure schedules so that there are only THREE 2-game road trips outside of your division. So, current Big East schools only have one 2-game West Coast road trip per season.

Division winners get automatic bye to BE tournament quarterfinals.

UConn, Cincinnati, San Diego St., and BYU = independent in football, but with some collaboration for media deals, late-season scheduling and bowl affiliations.
