Tulsa Big East

As has been expected since the “America 12” conference name was floated around, the Old Big East is adding

Tulsa as it’s 12th member. ECU will also be “promoted” from a football-only member to an all-sports member. The move will officially bring the conference to 11 members for non-football sports and 12 members for football. 9 of the 11 members were originally from Conference USA with only Temple and UConn as non-former CUSA members. Navy is still expected to join in 2015.

Conference USA is expected to replace Tulsa with a Sun Belt school such as Western Kentucky.

    I think they will stand pat for now, none of those schools really add much more. Maybe UTSA if their program develops further, possibly UMASS. I don’t really see UNI because it just doesn’t have that great of a footprint in Chicago to matter much.

  • Okay? Here is a question. Would they add Wichita State for all sports since they do not have football? That will bring their other sports to 12 when NAVY is only football only. I could see them to go to 16 by adding 4 more football schools.

    Northern Illinois
    Ohio U.
    Southern Miss.

    Any of these 4. If U.Conn. Cincinnati and the two florida Schools leave, you can get both C-USA Florida schools.
