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

    It is my understanding from some people at FAU and MTSU that they are negotiating with CUSA and the Sun Belt to join CUSA in 2013. It is sounding like the BE is needing Tulane and ECU to start next year. I am also assuming the Big 10 is pushing for people Maryland to start and the ACC is pushing for its other BE invitees to start sooner.

    It all started from an interview by Britton Banowski in the El Pasoan where is said, "Middle Tennessee and Florida Atlantic will join the league no later than the 2014-15 season, though C-USA commissioner Britton Banowsky indicated there are ongoing talks with the Sun Belt that could have them joining sooner."

    We'll see. There is some reading in between the lines. I am assuming the reason for the addition is to save the BE BCS bid. I don't know. If this is true then we have to get Mitchell out of town asap or we are in for a world of hurt next year.

    Heard nothing like that in Greenville or on Campus. Can't see it happening as ECU will be a football only school. ECU must find a home for the other 18 sports programs. And if someone was to say "No later than 2014" don't mean the schools will come into the conference a year sooner
