That's what I was assuming as well. It makes sense for KU and KSU to join the MWC and legitimize that conference. Only other option would be to join with Baylor, Iowa State, Houston, UTEP, SMU, Rice, and Tulsa and form a conference together.
Schad is drunk.
That conference would still not be that good football wise. Infact, if they did get an auto-BCS bid, it would be absolutely absurd and further drive the nail of the coffin for the BCS.
If Texas and Oklahoma join the Pac 10 and Nebraska has already joined the Big 10, then the Rose Bowl just made themselves a lot more money. Each one of those schools are football powers and travel very well.
The Big East has been a basketball conference since they made the move to 16 teams. Believe it or not football is second fiddle to basketball in the Big East.
No, it isn't. They are good at basketball, so they are going to sell that, but in terms of adding schools to their conference, if they don't have a decent football program, they might as not even bother talking to them.
What does another good basketball program do for the Big East? Not very much. They already have 16 teams and most any of them not named DePaul is competitive so they are looking at 6+ teams in the tournament every year anyway.
I want Notre Dame in the Big Ten. Bad. Adding a program like that would be a great move for the Big Ten. I wanna see 16 teams and a title game, but I don't wanna see teams added just for the sake of adding teams. I wanna see some quality football and basketball programs added to the mix.
I like Nebraska. Notre Dame and Pitt would be great. My five teams would be those 3 and Kansas and Rutgers.
