Wow, did Boise and San Diego jump ship too soon??? Could be that they go back to their own neck of the woods and play in the Mountain West due to the AQ thing changing in two years. Do you think that is why the Mountain West is currently holding at 10 schools? It would make better sense as it sounds like the NCAA is saying they are considering the top 10 teams at the end of the season would qualify for the BCS Bowls, without regard for the Conference. Check out this article......

Conference realignment: Will Big East keep all new members?
Posted by Berry Tramelon May 7, 2012M at 10:14 pm

The Big East’s problems continue. Commissioner John Marinatto has been pushed out, which some would say is a plus for the conference and others would say is a plus for Marinatto. Worse yet, the BCS talks make it less likely that the mid-majors needed to fill out Big East football need to be in such a crazy-geographic conference.

Boise State and San Diego State, for example, announced they would leave the Mountain West Conference and join Big East football in 2013. Boise State’s other sports found a home in the Western Athletic Conference; San Diego State’s other sports were accepted into the Big West.

Joining a trans-continental league was attractive to the Broncos and Aztecs on two fronts: enhanced television football money and an automatic BCS bowl berth for the Big East champion.

But one of the developments to come out of the recent playoff talks is that automatic BCS berths apparently will disappear in 2014. One of the ideas offered is that the top 10 teams, in whatever rating system is adopted, would qualify for the BCS, with no maximum per conference.

This will definitely set up another chance for those with money to flaunt it over those of us who don't if nothing changes in how the top teams are decided. I'm interested in seeing how they will address this form of equality.

Too many $$$$$ to care about fairness. Kinda like a Congressman....all that matter is what's fair for them and gets them the most $$$$$.

You're right... No one likes to address issues like that anymore. Greed is still the theme of the decade... as it has been for eons.

Funny, when it comes to programs like Title 9, the NCAA is all about "what's right" but let it come to conference realignment and it is all about money, success and "right" can take a hike. I think schools like Troy will always have a steep hill to climb for recognition. Should we start beating the big OOC schools regularly then we become a threat and get even more resistance with UA's attitude toward us as a prime example. Should we start winning these games regularly we would get noticed though. Even winning those, we probably stay in the Belt. What the Belt needs to do is raise its image.

Speaking of a "mess" when the dust finally settles and the ink has dried what are the conferences going to look like when Conference Realignment is completed?

I do not know but right now it is like a 5,000 piece gigsaw puzzle of a wheat field that has 20 or so 3 year olds assigned to putting it together. Could be a mess for a good while with LOTS of revisions or crammed in pieces. Just do not want to be the pieces that get dookied on over in the corner by the kid who can't hold it.

As 3 year olds are quite obtuse in nature. Putting together a 5,000 piece puzzle of a wheat field no less would be quite a chore.....However they would have no problem just cramming them anywhere on top of each other or upside down, oh they could do it but it would be really screwed up and some pieces would probably have peanut butter on them and some might just have dookie on them since a good many 3 year olds have not conquered the art of potting training.........So the fact would be that the end result would be a hodge podge of non-sensical garbage that was a total mess.....thus quoting the previous poster stating that when all was said and done and the ink dry it will be a mess.

So might as well have a 3 year old in charge cause they like getting things there way and do not care about what is right.....only that they get theirs...
