This is interesting. Depending on who is added (Notre Dame isn't realistic even though they are the first choice) it could open up a spot for FAU to make a move to a different conference.

They want to add a school from a different state in order to expand the market. Here is where a team like Louisville, West Virginia, Missouri, or Kentucky could fit in.

Other possible options might be Pitt or Cincinnati.

Most likely the BIG TEN would want to draw an existing BCS team. If that is the case I like the idea of Pitt going to the BIG TEN. Although it doesn't bring the BIG TEN to a new state, Pitt has a great history that would fit right in with the type of football that the BIG TEN plays. It seems to make the most sense. That would leave a BIG EAST opening for FAU.

It is all talk at this point, but if it happens 2,3, or even 4 years down the road FAU might be poised to make a move.

GO OWLS!!!

i love the big east and that school they add would only come from the big east which pisses me off but that could open the door for us. I just get afraid that UCF might be ahead of us.

it would definitley cause a shuffle...as when Miami left and went to the ACC...if we are poised right, could be a major benefit to us...
