It sounds like some folks are trying to convince themselves of their own relevance in an increasingly football-powered landscape. Everyone wants to feel they have a leg up on someone, huh? It's just odd that you don't see multi-page threads about the CAA, Horizon, MAAC, or MVC on this board.On the SJU board we've been told, multiples of times, primarily by Nova fans that SHU would be "first or second" in the A10 this year. So if you believe that--which, given your BE fan status I'd think you might--then adding teams like Duquesne--firmly not in the top part of the A10 where SHU would be 'first or second'--would not "add TWO more teams that will compete with Seton Hall's of the Big East..."
Something doesn't jive here. Like Bill has stated elsewhere about the P5, the BE wants it every which way without any respect to the laws of physics. Or, in this case, reality.
