If you want to talk Big South smack or ramble ad nauseum about your favorite pro or major college teams, this is the place to let it rip.

#526901 Nobody is happy with the lack of success in the last 5 years, but this is immediately increases the caliber of opponent we get in the bill. That excites me. I would be excited to host Eastern Michigan over Monmouth every time.

Along with VCU and Dayton...didn't the AAC learn the first time around that this arrangement doesn't work long term? Why not Wichita State to the A10, or those three schools to the Big East? I really don't see how AAC membership benefits them without football...

#527894 In spite of what the article indicated, football is not a dead issue for the Shockers. They could be considering AAC membership as a way to leverage football up that level immediately.

Well if they want to bring back football, then the AAC makes more sense for Wichita State.

#527927 I do agree that without football the AAC is not a particularly enticing possibility. The Big East would be a better fit even though they would be somewhat of an outlier as a state school in Midle America. Of course the watered down Mo Valley is still adeqaute for them to be a player on the national stage. I wouldn't be shocked to see Dayton invited into the Big East at some point.

Maybe the Shockers go to the A-10 if Dayton leaves for the Big East? They'd be a good travel partner for St. Louis.

#527956 Non football schools mess up conferences they are in.....most of the time. If a conference has football, every member should be required to play. Put non football schools in their own conference.

So, where should Liberty go since they'll be non-Football in the Big South?

But, for the conference, it's the same thing as not fielding a team.

The first step is admitting you have a problem. Good job.
