UMass & Tulsa

3-point shot: Florida without Erik Murphy

Quote:
The remaining Big East athletic directors will meet in Dallas on Jan. 11 to discuss their latest moves, including the update on the television negotiations. Tulsa and UMass have been discussed as possible additions if the Big East decides to expand, according to multiple sources. Rice and Southern Miss were also tossed around. Meanwhile, the Mountain West expects to move on San Diego State by the end of this week, according to a league source. The MWC has to decide if it will go to 12 or 14. The MWC has interest in SMU and Houston, but SMU has let it be known to the MWC it has no interest as the Mustangs and Cougars are set to go to the Big East. UTEP desperately wants to be in the MWC, according to a source, and is on the MWC list. BYU is the first choice for the MWC but at this juncture the Cougars want to remain independent in football, WCC in other sports.

Re: UMass & Tulsa

I think it's been obvious that if the western teams drop out of the nBE, UMass would be one of the few teams available to fill out the conference with BCS football and a decent basketball team. It just remains to be seen if, in fact, the west is gone. Could be the only way we get a game against UConn.

The west is gone. SDSU will not be sticking around. Guarantee it.

UMass wouldn't be a bad add, but your current stadium situation is definitely a negative.

I went to every homegame this year for football and it was great being in Gillette.


But homecoming was the stupidest thing ever - it seriously needs to be on campus ASAP. I can't wait for that...I love how close it is to me now...but I love the excuse to head back to the western part of the state every now and then. I missed that this year.

True about the stadium. The powers that be must be even more aware of it.

Re: UMass & Tulsa

Next season should be the last season that "homecoming" is played at Gillette. UMass will play one or two games per season on campus starting in 2014. The remaining four or five home games will continue to be played at Gillette until the lease runs out near the end of the decade.

Re: UMass & Tulsa

Would love to have UMass join, would make an obvious rival for us which we were going to lack.

I don't think UConn shares your opinion and until they leave, they will have the most weight in the new Big East all sports league.

We did not oppose them joining Hockey East.

Re: UMass & Tulsa

UConn is the biggest fish left in the pond. But the pond is drying up quickly. I'd expect them to change their stance on Umass. They don't appear to have a seat at the big tables, so filling in the holes in the Big East is their only course right now. And Umass seems like one of their best options.

Re: UMass & Tulsa

Hard to imagine why UConn would oppose UMass' entry at this point.

Re: UMass & Tulsa

For the same reasons they always opposed UMass. Minimize regional competition. Protect their top dog status. Sheer orneriness.

Just like UConn plays UMass home and home each season in hoops.

UConn, as is their normal hypocritical self, will go on about the injustice of the actions of BC blocking them from the ACC and then quickly turn around and take a similar action with another school (such as UMass).
