I know this post will get me "jumped on," but I'll try it anyway.
TCU would be wise to stay put.
(1) More regional rivalries in CUSA and less travel cost...and the MWC is NOT head and shoulders above CUSA...they are about equal in strenght/prestige/intagibles/etc.
(2) Read the handwriting on the wall. In the next 1-8 years the Big 10 WILL expand and the PAC-10 will follow suit. While there is much speculation as to who the expansion teams will be...it is quite possible two of the best schools in MWC could go, further diluting the MWC strength...
Just my thoughts. I'll put on my helmet now.
stevus, Surprise I agree with you, at least on the TCU staying put part. It just makes more sense to me on TCU's part. I can see why the MWC is trying to get them, but in the end think TCU will not pass up the regional aspect of the new C-USA. I think you'll be surprised at the number of people here that think TCU should stay too.
On point #2, wrong...wrong...wrong. Pull your head out of your ass that ain't happenin', idiot!!! >:( Just kidding, but wanted you to get some use from your helmet. ;D Still, the Pac-10 won't expand until everything is just right (Colorado & Colo St.), and even then only if they absolutely are forced to.
