    The Big East will reportedly add Boise State, San Diego State, University of Central Florida, the University of Houston and Southern Methodist University in 2013, according to a Brett McMurphy of CBS Sports.

    In other news, the Big East needs a map.

    So its Boise and SDSU as football only and the rest as full members, this really puts a torpedo in the side of conference USA.

    Love that the "big east" now reaches the pacific.
    Go Gators!

    Re: Big East Football

    Jokes about the geographic accuracy of the conference name aside, I'm actually pretty excited about the new look Big East. I think Boise State is a more than capable football replacement for West Virginia. I also think that the trio of SMU, UCF and Houston more than replace what Pitt and Syracuse brought to the table in football. While I would have preferred BYU over SDSU, if that's what it took to get Boise State, I'm all in.

    The unfortunate part of this all is that if the Big East would have made moves like this quickly, they could have had their pick of these teams and also kept WV and TCU. They should have pounced when the B12 was teetering. There's really no excuse for the ineptitude, but at least they've managed to salvage something in the end.

    This move means that when Louisville and UConn inevitably flee, the Big East will have screwed up not only its football league, but its basketball league as well.

    Honestly serves the Providence Mafia right for the incompetance they shoveled down the football schools throats for so long.

    I honestly expect Rutgers/UConn one to the ACC and the other to the B1G, Louisville and Cincy to B12 (to get them back to 12). At which point there will be no real school with ties to the basketball conference, at which point the bball schools tell the rest of them you don't have to go home but you can't stay here. You have a decent core for the basketball side, kick out the football schools and then add some combination of Butler, St Louis, St Joe's and return to concentrating on the basketball side and still maintaining a high level conference when this is said and done.

    The Big East is going to ask all schools to sign an assignment of rights over the summer before they begin TV negotiations.

    I'll be interested to see what Louisville and UConn do when confronted with that.

    Re: Big East Football

    In 2013, the BIG EAST will have 13 football playing schools, and that is if USAFA and Navy haven't joined yet. There could be 15 in 2013 if all seven join and the conference doesn't let the other three out early. As Marianatto said, "a contract is a contract".
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    It's a mess but it's as good as UC can do for now. It beats the Great Midwest, Metro, Conf USA and any other conf they've been a part of

    It is CUSA thought. With the departures of Pitt, WVU, and Syracuse all the programs with any relevant tradition are gone. As of now they only difference between the Big East and CUSA is an automatic bid that I imagine will be taken away during the next negotiations.

    I see your point but I might add that Boise St is a better football school than anyone in conf usa. That has to help their chances of keeping their bid. You are correct, that bid is huge
