GW IS NOT team C. They went to 3 NCAA's but only won 1 game.

Re: More BCS realignment

Another possibility - UConn, Cincinnati, and Memphis join the new BE7 in the basketball focused conference leaving their football teams behind.

Several A10 schools could be in process of being jerked around.

I know most UD fans want to join the BE7, but I don't think any A10 schools should be offended in they are not in the BE7 discussion - you may be the lucky ones.

I'd be pretty shocked if that happened. It would be the same Big East again without USF...This would be quite a bit of work just to kick out USF (there are only 11 teams currently in the BE).

These Catholic schools without football know UConn and UC are likely to end up in the ACC within the next few years if any more expansion happens (the ACC is highly likely to be raided again soon).

I think the BE7 teams who have seen 10 conference mates leave in the last 10 years are sick of the revolving door. Adding teams without football programs would actually lead to a very stable conference. Particularly if they can achieve their goal of making the best basketball-only conference in the country. Where else would a team want to go? There would be no upgrade possible and thus no incentive to leave.

I guess it might be possible that one of the BE-7 honchos might be utterly stupid, have swiss cheese for the memory portion of his brain, or recently underwent a frontal lobotomy. But there is absolutely no way for a majority of them to make the mistake (once again) to partner up with FB driven schools. 6 months or a year later, the BE7 will be looking for replacements for those three once again.

It would also be great for every program to seriously challenge for a league title (either regular season or Tourney) at least once during that same period of time.

I'm just saying, not speaking for the other guy, it cant hurt to be cautious. I agree with your post but this is all happening very fast. I still tend to believe that this is going to take some time.

Re: More BCS realignment

Food for thought. Are the BE-7 "going forward" a better group than the current A-10? If the A-10 sticks together I believe they will be better than the BE-7.

Re: More BCS realignment

We have over 2 years to see how it plays out. There is too much money on the table for the BE7 to violate by-laws and they have to wait 27 months. Unless they have excellent lawyers or give concessions to the Big East conference. The big thing for us is to see what happens to UConn, Cincy, Memphis, and Temple. The A10/MAC combo is a great fit for us. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. The A10 will always be a good league and have multiple bids.

Re: More BCS realignment

Let's just say for sake of argument that the A10 loses Xavier, Richmond and St. Louis. (But really you could insert any combination of possible candidates.)

What if the remaining A10 schools with "strong" resumes, facilities, history, dedication to winning, etc...decide to to pull a similar move?

I don't want to name who these potential schools could be because I'm not looking to stir a debate with who belongs in that group and who doesn't. Just simply put forth the possibility that could some of these remaining take their ball and go play with other like minded teams from other conferences in yet another new hybrid league?

I think that's correct, but that's not really the question being asked. The A10 teams cannot reasonably be expected to look out for the conference's well-being, only their own. I think this is a lesson that realignment has made painfully clear. So the only question is will the reconsituted A10 be better than the BE7 and whatever programs they choose to invite.

Yes. Maybe not the case if the A-10 had done some "spring cleaning" several years ago.

I think if we could go farther back in time knowing what we know now, all the big name football schools would want to form specific football only conferences while leaving their other sports in their relatively sensible geographically based leagues. Too late now!

Exactly.

The BE7 just made a strategic decision to cut away from football. Period. End of story. The only nexus that may exist between the BE7 and the football schools are a few - very few - Georgetown fans who bring up the idea of Gtown still being an option for the ACC. They tend to get shouted down by their colleagues.

These schools are moving forward to optimize a hoops-centric conference. They'll fill in as they and television execs deem appropriate.

Anything involving football schools at this point for those 7 schools is non-sense.

I guess alot of UD people are stupid because they are trying to align with schools that screwed them over in the past. I don't know if UCONN would want to join a conference without their football team, but if they did, the BE7 would gladly accept a school with some NCAA championships under their belt. UCONN basketball program is in a precarious situation.

If the thought threatens you, thats not my problem. If X does join the new conference, you will fit in nicely with the arrogant BE7.
