If I remember correctly, their AD was convinced that they (Louisiana Tech) would get a bid to the more prestigious Liberty Bowl due to bowl bid dominoes. That bid never came and the Bulldogs were out of a bowl. I think he lost his job.

How about this one: what if the Metro 7 had sponsored football?

By Metro 7, do you mean the 1990 group of Cincinnati, Memphis, Louisville, Tulane, Florida St, Virginia Tech, and South Carolina?

If so, and presuming they stuck around, I would think going to 12 in the 90's would've been the goal for CCG. Independents in football and SWC "leftovers" would likely be their target. I don't think Big East football becomes a thing.

Penn St still heads to the B1G. Miami, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, and Boston College go to the ACC. West Virginia, East Carolina, Rutgers, Houston, and TCU join the Metro.

ACC
Atlantic: Miami, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Duke, Virginia, Maryland
Coastal: Clemson, North Carolina St, Wake Forest, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Boston College

Metro
West: TCU, Houston, Tulane, Memphis, Louisville, Cincinnati
East: Florida St, South Carolina, East Carolina, West Virginia, Virginia Tech, Rutgers
