    The addition of TCU is great for the league, but still leaves them as a small league with only 9 members. Villanova is being considered, but does adding an FCS team (albeit a good one) really add anything? They really need 12 teams. Add UCF, which is an up-and-coming team, FIU (they could be great in a BCS conference with all that Miami talent), and make a play for Notre Dame, if they decline, get back Temple. Then split up the conference like this.

    North:
    Connecticut
    Syracuse
    Cincinnati
    Rutgers
    Villanova
    Notre Dame (or Temple)

    South:
    South Florida
    UCF
    FIU
    Louisville
    Pittsburgh
    TCU

        If ND wanted to join a conference, they would have gone to the Big 10.

          Wow. That's a pretty big geographic disconnect for them, but good for them if they get into a BCS conference, albeit the weakest one. They'll have a recruiting edge over a lot of those teams being able to recruit Texas.

            HAHahah, they join in 2012. And then after that they may have to leave if the Big East losses it automatic bid. They go up for voting in 2 year from now. I doubt they loose it, but how funny would that be.

            If they have some Big East opponents scheduled in next year that would be great to see how they are going to do.
            To bad they couldn't join the Big 12, would have been easier traveling and 5 Texas schools.

              Yeah, TCU to the Big 12 to replace Nebraska/Colorado sounded a lot better than TCU to the Big East.

                Yes, but from the Big12's perspective they added ZERO income.

                The Big12 already owns the state of Texas for cfb viewership. Competitively, it would have been great.

                Also, this move really sucks for BSU. I still think something big will shakeout in the next few years (maybe the Big East becomes the superconference of mid-major football teams?)

                    South Florida
                    UCF
                    FIU
                    Louisville
                    Pittsburgh
                    TCU
                    Adding FIU would be a horrendous move and would go a long way towards ensuring that they would actually lose their automatic qualifier.

                    Plus, they don't need more teams. The main reason they want to add Villanova is because it wouldn't require them to add another basketball school. TCU called their bluff and won, but no other team will have that clout.

                        Yeah, my bad. Mis-counted. Forget about FIU and just put West Virginia in there.

                        But in terms of FIU, why would they be so bad? They dominated the Sun Belt this year, played BCS teams Rutgers and Texas A&M close, they would open up the Miami area for recruiting, and with their good coach and good recruiting, they'll only get better. Sure, they would hurt the Big East in terms of keeping the automatic qualifying status right now, but by the time they join in 2012-2013, they should be a borderline top-25 team, which is where the rest of the Big East is now.

                          Because it's just one year, and even this year they couldn't hang. Wait, I'm sorry, did you say borderline top 25 team? Are you ******* serious?

                          Sagarin rankings for the last few years.

                          2010:
                          Big East Average: 61
                          TCU: 4
                          Central Florida: 51
                          Villanova: 72
                          FIU: 103

                          2009:
                          Big East: 39
                          TCU: 4
                          Central Florida: 71
                          Villanova: 30
                          FIU: 134

                          2008:
                          Big East: 43
                          TCU: 7
                          Central Florida: 110
                          Villanova: 63
                          FIU: 113


                          Need I go on?

                          Honestly I don't think they should add Central Florida either. Villanova is arguably the better football program already, and you wouldn't need to add them for any other sports.

                            Well....TCU will certainly be the conference's best team right away.
