With that, programs like UCONN, and USF have experienced being on the inside, then ending up somewhat on the outside looking in.

Questions for those fans: At what point did you start to believe you would no longer be in a conference that was considered a "major" conference or "power" conference? Aside from money, what is the difference regarding your program now, as opposed to then?

I love realignment and expansion talk, and I have always been curious what that is like.

Nobody anticipated Syracuse and Pitt jumping ship. The BE had just turned down an offer from ESPN to increase the media rights to ~$13M/year. This exodus led to WVU leaving the conference just weeks later. This was the point where most thought the power days was over. This set up the rest of the schools to scramble to land back in a power conference.

For UC fans the penultimate moment was after Louisville got invited to the ACC. Not only did we not get the call up (there were rumors the ACC were taking UConn, UC and UofL) but we lost our long time rival.

As far as difference in the programs recruitung has been a tougher sell. When we were in the Big East we were out recruiting middle to lower tier Schools in the Big 10 and Tge AcC. Now it is tough to out recruit them---Coach Fickell is doing it so far, let's hope he keeps the momentum going.

So I embarrassed myself by trying and failing to provoke folks here by implying that the Florida schools are too wimpy and stupid to reschedule football games during the biggest hurricane in history. Now I'll try the Glory Days approach, under the guise of legitimate questions, to get a rise. A lot of effort for a small thrill on an internet sports board, imo.

5 playoff conferences with all the tv money
5 non playoff conferences with really no tv money
How long will this hold up ?
Can their be even more of a split, mybe, maybe not, might get into legal action ?
I find it very interesting that a lot of nonplayoff schools are in fact spending real big money on stadiums and such, if we keep doing this I think it will put pressure on the grand plans that is the current college football landscape

Sorry, I forgot to mention Temple was in the Big East for, what, 12 or 13 years? So 7 out of 12 members have been in a power conference, with 6 of those in the recent past.

Also Tulsa, Tulane, Memphis, East Carolina, and Navy all played very tough schedules in the independent days. Every team in this conference has had a taste of the good life, but we are actively being forced out.

Wasn't even an especially clever troll job either.

ECU Football was accepted to the Big East in 2012. When the Pirates arrived in 2014, the train had left the station.

BTW...I grant you an early parole from the "Root for" bet. Gotta have you rooting to get ECU back on track instead. It's in all our best interests.
