Guys I think you can stop wasting your fingers on talk of Memphis and Cincinnati going to the Big 12 and how that might affect the American, CUSA and Sun Belt.

They've come out explicitly saying they don't want to expand.


And if they did, they sure wouldn't want Memphis

Yeah, I'd be curious who's lining up to have Memphis. Wasn't WVU one the schools who tried to keep them out of the Big East? If you're going to give WVU a life raft geographically in that conference, why give them a school they don't like?

Memphis was one of three Normal schools established by the state of Tennessee, the others being ETSU and MTSU.

As far as I know, the only major interest in propping them up as a major college brand is the FedEx corportation, which is headquartered in the city and for some reason has decided that it figures to gain from national expsure of the University in the same city (ie, playing at FedEx forum, FedEx stadium, etc.). If they somehow pushed the school through, they had darn well change their team logo to the FedEx logo.
