BYU not coming will cause other Western teams to reconsider not to come also...note been mentioned that BCS will go with rankings of teams for all bowls not with conference tie-ins next time around...that being case...no reason to join the BE
Looks like Providence now has its eyes on San Diego State. At least, that is the school BSU prefers. I wonder if the basketball schools won't have second thoughts about expansion now, however, particularly as the school that is leading up the BE's expansion effort is giving a serious look at the ACC.
Heck, why not add Hawaii and a 5th time zone. At what point do we all admit that this is one giant cluster f$&%???????
Time to move on. Let the football teams join with other leagues, let the basketball teams form a new basketball-only league and preserve the Big East for what it was: the best basketball conference and a a decent at times, but unsustainable, football conference. Oh and a short-lived lacrosse league.
