I have heard that we could possibly be going to the BE in 2013

    If SDSU stays we will be picking up Boise State's schedule next year. I have heard it from a reliable person with first hand knowledge.

    The C7 are looking to get out of the conference ASAP

    If SDSU is accepted back in the MWC (they can leave the BE without penalty, now that Boise has backed out) they will have 12 schools. They may not want more, which leaves Houston and SMU in a 10 team Big East.

    Those schools are: UConn, Cincy, Temple, USF, UCF, Tulane, ECU, Houston, SMU and Memphis. That's not all that bad. They would be in the mix with the MWC for the automatic BCS bid that goes to the highest ranked conference champ outside the Big Five.

    If UConn were to snag its desired invitation to the ACC, they could be replaced by UAB. Still not a bad league. It would be essentially what CUSA was several years ago but with a new name.

    It is pretty obvious that ECU going all sports rather than football only is merely a formality. The big question is what will the football playing version of the BE be by the time the Pirates get there? BSU is gone, there is some talk that Houston and SMU may defect to the MWC, UC and UConn could decide to go with the C7 for all but football and play as football independents with the hope of being called up to the ACC in a couple of years. Who knows what will happen but regardless it should be better than staying in C-USA.

    Boise just announced that they will be staying in the Mountain West. No big surprise there. I expect we'll hear the same from SDSU any day.

    Lawsuits and buyouts must be settled. Each school must try to give a two year notice or schedule schools from their old conference to smooth the change.

    Heard nothing like that in Greenville or on Campus. Can't see it happening as ECU will be a... View More

    It said that talks were in progress with the SBC to get the teams in sooner than 2014. If those two teams get added for 2013 or we are going to have a 9 team division.

    All I am saying is that if this is truly going on now, then other moves from conferences above ours are probably happening too. i.e. Maryland and Rutgers to the B1g 10 in 2013. Louisville and the other BE teams to the ACC,etc....
