Somebody please tell me I am sleeping. Is the Big East really going to ask Boise State, SMU, UCF, Houston and San Diego State to become the next 5 members of the Big EAST???
Geography happens to be one of my strongest areas and how does the NCAA allow this crazy alignment for the Big East. First off, the NCAA should make the conference rename itself. I go with The "Sloppy Second" Conference since this is a conference for football purposes is made up of rejects from other major conferences. I mean only inviting Hawaii would be a further trip for teams then San Diego State.
This whole realignment in college football is becoming quite a joke. The SEC made some moves that technically made them a larger conference not necessarily a stronger conference other then branding into other tv markets. The ACC further solidified themselves as the dominant basketball conference adding Pitt and Cuse. The Pac 12 made themselves stronger and a normal size conference to implement a championship game in football. The Big 10ish added some strong football schools to further strengthen its football, but other then that gave them a very misleading conference name. The new Big 10/12/9er is sitting there hoping that no one else leaves and has yet to make a step forward though there conference still has very strong members in both football and basketball.
I blame the BCS and Randy Edsall, sorry I couldn't help myself. This is making no sense when it comes to conferences anymore. The NCAA needs to step in and create a four team playoff or only award the top 10 teams in the BCS rankings the BCS bowls, eliminating automatic bids from conferences. I mean look at the new Big Everywhere/East. The conference got weaker, but larger so this further proves the need for a playoff or change to the BCS since the BCS is an absolute joke.
What are your thoughts on the "New Big Everywhere"?
