    Don't rule out the possibility that there could be a lot of spots open in the ACC before all is said and done. In fact, both the ACC and Big East could dissolve altogether. Under a scenario I speculated on in the Wolves Den, here are some eastern schools that might be left to form a new conference if the Big Ten, SEC and Big XII all went to 16 teams:

    In the northeast: UConn, Syracuse, UMass, Boston College, Temple, Wake Forest, Virginia, Louisville, Cincinnati and Louisville.

    In the south: Southern Florida, Central Florida, UAB, Southern Miss, Memphis.

    ECU could do worse.

    I know that the Big East has always had their reasons for not inviting ECU in. But at this point what other schools would be considered more attractive than the Pirates? At least in football we would give them a full stadium. We are a large, solid university and we aren't a million miles away from the majority of the schools in the conference. There should be two spots opening up UCONN goes to the ACC.

    Not sure that ECU would get an invite considering their TV market and region. But I loved the observation about the "new and old CUSA". I guess it may come down to a choice. Does ECU want to be the "king pin" of a bunch of losers (new CUSA-- barely Div. I teams), or do they want to be a "middle of the road" team in a more traditional, respectable and "brand name" conference of the Big East (old CUSA). Unfortunately, I don't think ECU will be the ones doing the choosing.

    True, but THAT cusa is better than THIS cusa.

    In effect, ECU would just be rejoining C-USA. With Rutgers gone there wouldn't be any charter football members of the Big East left. But there would be 7 former C-USA schools.

    It would be of great benefit for ECU to get into the big east. They should try again to do everything that they can right now to make that happen. However this turn of events did not make it any more likely then it ever was.

    Logan said two weeks ago on his Saturday morning show that ECU should do everything in their power is get out of the C-USA and into the Big East. He said that CUSA was killing the Pirates. I was thinking the Big East was on the verge of self-distructing but I don't know much. Is Logan right? Is Rutgers to the Big Ten finally the opportunity for ECU to get an invite? Is it the place for ECU to go? I suppose that even if the Big East is losing it's automatic bid it is still a higher level of football. What do you guys think?
