    Default East Carolina on the move?

    Looks like ECU will be headed to Big East

    Looks like C-USA as we know it might cease to exist. Memphis and UCF might be next to replace Pitt and Syracuse.

    Just combine the remnants of the Belt and remnants of C-USA and call it whatever you want

    I personally love the SBC, however if the CUSA comes to us with an offer I think we should at least take a look. I don't see them considering us for many years though...

    No offense to the one who posted this thread, but let's worry about this later. TROY FOOTBALL (at home) STARTS SATURDAY!!! GO TROJANS!!!!

    I know may be pipe dreaming but I was thinking bigger than C-USA and SBC.

    You know, I'm thinking the same thing. I'm hoping that once everything is said and done, and it may not be this year or next, but this shuffling is going to last a while. I would love to end up in the ACC or Big East. Now you may laugh, but it would give a broader region to both conferences and we all know that we can hang with both on the field

    Here's what I think should happen.

    ECU & UCF are likely on the move. SMU also stands a real chance of landing in the Big XII IF they stay together. Let's say this happens.

    Send UTEP & Tulsa to the WAC/MWC

    Take La Tech from WAC (don't know how that was ever a fit)

    New Conference

    East - Troy, UAB, S.Miss, FIU, FAU, South Alabama, WKU, MTSU, Marshall

    West - La Tech, Tulane, UL-Monroe, ULL, Arkansas St, Houston, Rice, Memphis, North Texas

    The new conference would have a HUGE footprint (TV markets), but still keep traveling within the division relatively easy. Also would give us a chance to add a Conference Championship Game in NEW ORLEANS.

    Just dreaming...but I think it would work.

    I actually like the "unthought of" thoughts, sort like the new Big East ....... get some brains a churning....

    I'll never laugh at these suggestions because they are my thoughts exactly. BigEast and ACC are what I have been thinking and dreaming of for years now. I may be crazy but I believe in setting goals high and reaching to achieve those goals as fast as possible. The higher you set your goals, individual or institution, the higher your level of attainment even if you don't hit the ultimate top goal. Just one of my philosophies of life.
