Would Memphis join the Big East if offered?
This would mean going independent in football and no Big 12 invite is on the horizon (I don't think there is tbh).

I think at this point we have made such an investment into improving our football program that giving up on it would be out of the question.

No.
When the American was formed, the BEast inquired about us joining them.
We want football, so we said no.
Independence would be a death blow to a program like Memphis these days.
(see UConn)

Not even a legitimate question. OP is either being facetious or has no clue how college athletics work.

Hey, it looks like the OP is a UConn fan, so that means the second part of your sentence is most likely correct.

Do you think they already miss us? Is that why he came here to post?

I would say there is a SMALL chance it could happen.

ONLY and IF ONLY Memphis is not accepted into the Big 12 or another P5.
If the AAC payout greatly diminishes...we aren't in demand for expansion...then I could see us maybe pulling the trigger...all of those things would have to happen first.

RE: Would Memphis join the Big East if offered?
Probably not likely, but with the AAC being weakened, would the AAC now POSSIBLY be willing to allow one if their biggest remaining brands be football only? Would they rather have a foitball-only Memphis or no Memphis, at all? ?

Agreed...

Unless we are going to take Tommy West's advice we should never go independent.

But if we cannot drag ourselves into the Big XII there will need to be some tough conversations.

If P5 doesn’t happen, then we have the opportunity to be the #1 brand G5 program. If that still means an opportunity for ESPN contracts and a chance at an auto bid for a NY6 or possibly even a spot in an expanded playoff, then it means we continue to press onward with football.

The school has put all the pieces together over the past several years to position ourselves as the top choice for any continued P5 expansion. I believe there will be one last consolidation (and ND will finally join a conference), and we’ll finally catch that last train out.
