Room in C-USA for FAU?

Tulane movin on up

Tulane University is expected to announce today at a 1 p.m. news conference that it will join the Big East Conference for the 2013-14 school year, according to sources close to the university. Tulane is currently a member of Conference USA.



Tulane Coach Curtis Johnson and the Green Wave are expected to join the Big East next season.
Tammy Nunez, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune Memphis, SMU, Central Florida and Houston are other current Conference USA members who are set to join the Big East next year.

There will be East and West Divisions within the new Big East alignment. Among current Big East members, Rutgers is leaving for the Big Ten, and Syracuse and Pittsburgh are leaving for the ACC.

Multiple sources have confirmed it including Joe Schad.

Also rumored to be going from CUSA is ECU finally.

However rumor is also that Big East is losing Louisville, Uconn, and Cincinatti to the ACC.

Have to see how it shakes out.

If they lose two they could want MTSU and WKU for that rivalry. Or they could do MTSU and FAU to get back into TN and replace the NO market with ours + FIU rivalry.

Haha, so basically Conf USA is becoming the SunBelt with more travel expenses due to schools like UTEP?  No thanks.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

C-USA has FIU and some very good academic institutions – Rice, UAB, and others are great company to keep. It makes too much sense for us to be in the same conference as FIU.

So the Big East is now really old CUSA +/- a few teams.

Who the **** knows where this crap ends.

I hate it. Every Football season for the past 3 years gets ruined by this baloney.

Sun Belt needs to go after Southern Miss and La Tech.
