As long as Temple has Division 1 football there is a 0.0% chance they will get an invite.

If it were methematically possible, Temple might actually have even less than a 0.00% chance of an invite to help the C7 form their new Conference, at least as long as Villanova is one of the 7!!!

Shouldn't a Moderator adjust this thread's title to add a question mark, at the very least?
Or lock the thread?

I would love to remain associated with Temple, but Temple has other plans that are rather clear at this point. Even if (when) the FBS schools go to 4 x 16, schools like UCONN, UC, BC, and Wake, at a minimum, will be able to join forces with Temple, Memphis and the two Florida directional schools to form the basis of a surviving ACC. Assuming schools like Pitt and Syracuse fail to make the cut as well, that would be a league of 10 with solid basketball schools involved.

Since football drives the bus, Temple will make more in the Big East 2.0 than they would in the C7.
Plus, they will have only Memphis to deal with as far as getting the league NCAA bid for the next few years.
Why go to a tougher league like the C7?

In the long run, Temple will have to maintain their excellence since the other schools in the new Big East are laying the foundation for solid basketball programs. But it will take a while for them to catch Temple.

We'll be in the ACC when musical conferences starts again.

There was a lot of noise from the Temple Athletic department and fans when they first officially joined the Big Least. Now that the Big Least is half of what they thought it was, they are going to remain very quiet until something better comes along again. In fact, in private quarters the non-football folks are all dragging their tails now leaving and I guarantee you at least one call to the A10 commissioner will be made, asking if they can stay awhile. They will also come knocking on multiple individual A10 schools doors to kind of boost their OOC RPI, but the fans are secretly overjoyed at not having to play their butts off in Olean, as well as St Louis, next year to escape blowout losses to those teams.

The conference that Temple is joining is going to be a significantly higher level basketball conference.

The A10 is about to be without Charlotte, Temple, Butler, Xavier, and two of St Louis, Dayton, and Richmond. Temple's leaders are likely very happy that their fortunes turned out as they have

Nowhere?

In addition to football, there's the problem of Villanova wanting absolutely nothing to do with Temple, and continuing to be furious about them getting into the Big East over Nova's objections. The Holy Baloney league isn't an option for Temple, period.

Stonewall D,

You may want to just sit out this realignment stuff. Temple's conference will be:

South Florida, Connecticut, Cincinnati, Temple, East Carolina, Houston, Memphis, Navy, SMU, Tulane, UCF, and probably Tulsa

Then, UMass would be on deck....

We played at places like Kansas, Duke, Texas, Georgetown, etc., but we're scared of Bona and St. Louis? Cmon man...
