      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.
      I'm not saying FIU is a top-25 team now. I'm saying in two years. I think their progression as a football program will be very similar to that of USF's. And Villanova is not a better team than UCF.

        If the Big East could add UCF as football only and they want Nova to keep the basketball schools there, it is a possibility they continue expanding. But it honestly doesn't make them much better. They just need their good programs (Pitt, WVU, Syracuse,) to pick it up. Maybe UConn or Rutgers emerges and becomes relevant and they can get back.

          All this conference changing feels so collegiate! How long until the conferences start taking on sponsors in their name?

          "The Big East presented by Chase Bank"

          "The Ford Tough SEC"


          How long until the Texas Longhorns and USC Trojans begin the wave of college teams leaving the NFL.

          Seriously though, teams chaning conferences like this is helping make college football feel more and more like pure pro football.

              Would be nice if the MWC could pick up SMU. June Jones has that program on the rise!

                June Jones is a great coach. Why haven't any of the bigger schools gone after him?

                  and I think RU and Uconn can do just that. UConn looked impressive at times this year and Rutgers is unbelivably young, like it's insane how young we are. So who knows.

                    Ehh that's not an excuse for how we played this year. Schiano and staff ruined the season with the terrible offense we run. Also, the defense which was supposed to be a very good unit this year looks like a Pop Warner team. Things aren't looking up for us as much as they used too.

                      This should end all of the talk about the MWC getting an automatic bid. This should also end the talk about the Big East losing the automatic bid.

                        Maybe because he's old...? Not a real aggressive recruiter. His system/style definitely works though. If he had elite players in that system, they'd be a Top 10 year every year.

                          I know that it's not what this change is about but they're are going to get absolutely **** on in basketball.

                              Let's not get crazy here. Miami had been winning national championships and tearing up top competition before joining the Big East.

                              TCU (or BSU) hasn't come close to doing either.

                              I do think TCU can come in be like VT in the ACC. Unspectacular but they win the conference a whole bunch. But that is probably even a stretch.

                                Darn it! I meant to say "leaving for the NFL".

                                I blame Scott's forums. :\
