I’ve started to change my position on Boise St. recently. I’m now starting to think that there is some validity to them remaining in the MWC. So it was refreshing to hear that Boise St. has been having the same thoughts and that I’m not a crazy person thinking that Boise St. might be better […]

The Recap: So the ACC struck first by adding Syracuse and Pittsburgh from the Big East. The SEC followed by adding Texas A&M and Missouri from the Big 12. The Big 12 then added TCU and WVU. And things seemed normal. Patterns remained intact. And we waited for the next, seemingly logical move. And then […]

An interesting read in the Chronicle today about the proposed formation of a non-football “super conference” comprised of Big East schools and others, an idea brought up by 2 current Big East non-football schools. Who they are is still unknown, but if you’re thinking Marquette and Depaul, you could be correct. The rationale is understandable: […]
