FAU to the ACC???????

A question from CFN.

Scout.com: ASK CFN - Can Ole Miss Win The BCS Title?


Q: Suppose that for some crazy reason every BCS conference felt the need to expand and add 2 mid-major teams to each of their respective conferences. In your opinion who would go where and why?? devin

A: The reasoning for each would be a combination of geography and the potential for instant rivalries with nearby schools. School-size and fan base is also part of the equation; its not just wins and losses.

ACC: East Carolina and Florida Atlantic
Big East: UCF and Marshall
Big Ten: Notre Dame (Im making ND a mid-major for purposes of this question. I cant come up with a second team, but if I had to pick one Id take Northern Illinois.)
Big 12: Houston and TCU
Pac 10: BYU and Utah (But Id also add Boise State and Fresno State)
SEC: Memphis and Southern Miss

Guess CFN sees us as a better match geographically for Miami then then FIU.

;D

Re: FAU to the ACC???????

yeah! FAU is seen as a better team on the field, plus we have a conference title and 2 bowl titles.
FIU has the stadium and 40K students; however, their fan base is really low. Actually it is lower than FAU's.
Let's see what happens in the future!
FAU needs the stadium, larger alumni and of course, the fan base will grow stronger.
It is just a matter of time.

I notice that Troy was left out on this one. I would be sure to take Troy for the SEC over Memphis.

GO OWLS!!!

I'd rather see them hypothetically bring each major conference to 14 teams instead of just add 2 randomly. Big East would need 6 for that whereas SEC only 2. Then it would become interesting…even so its much ado over nothing.

Memphis may be about to crash and burn.

Rumor mill is HOT that John Callipari is leaveing Memphis to take over Kentucky and taking more then a few of his vaunted recruiting calss with him.

If memphis tanks out in Basketball, CUSA wont be worth a damn and will probably drop behind the SunBelt (if it hasnt already)

Then why UCF and Marshall to the BIG EAST and why Southern Miss to the SEC?? I don't believe any of those teams are basketball powerhouses.

I also don't see Marshall or Southern Miss as having a big TV market.

All things equal I would say Troy over Memphis for the SEC for football.

GO OWLS!!!

Will the Big 13 still call itself the Big 10?
