Temple looks to be rejoining the Big East in time for football season. They also have an invite to join the MWC-CUSA alliance. Exciting stuff, I know:http://collegefootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/02/22/report-temple-to-big-east-in-2012/
I am not claiming I am right, I am saying I don't get it.
Big East bringing Temple back is weak sauce. Didn't they basically kick them out before Va Tech/Miami/BC left and the subsequent Louisville, USF, Cincy (UConn football) run they went on?
back to back posts. a week apart.Thanks for staying on the upandup, Turd.
Hey Turd, your avatars are like Entheogen_Review, except cool.

There's that fa.g-talk we talked about. Still the greatest intro ever:
Georgia State joins Sun BeltATLANTA (AP) — Georgia State didn’t have a football team three years ago. Now they’re joining the ranks of the game’s superpowers.
I would put the Sun Belt at the same level as the Wonder Twins.
Georgia State joins Sun BeltATLANTA (AP) — Georgia State didn’t have a football team three years ago. Now they’re joining the ranks of the game’s superpowers.The Panthers accepted an invitation Monday to become a member of the Sun Belt Conference in 2013, when they’ll be playing in the Football Bowl Subdivision.Panthers coach Bill Curry is excited about the move, but the timing surprised him.“For us to be able to move this quickly is something I would have never dreamed of,” Curry said.Georgia State launched its program in 2010 and has played only two seasons in the Football Championship Subdivision. The Panthers are 9-13 under Curry, including 3-8 in 2011.But this move is about economics, not success on the football field.“I don’t think we had a choice,” Curry said.The official invitation was extended to the school by Sun Belt Conference president and Troy University chancellor Jack Hawkins. The Panthers will continue to play in the FCS as a member of the Colonial Athletic Association through 2012.Georgia State President Mark Becker said dramatic conference realignments across the nation led to a feasibility study to determine if the school was a good fit for a FBS conference. He said the study “showed we would fit nicely” with the Sun Belt.At that point, it was just a matter of waiting for the invitation.“When all the arrows pointed to ‘Yes, do this’ then we had to move quickly because if you don’t, you get left in the dirt the way it is these days,” Curry said. “Things move so fast in this world.”Sun Belt Commissioner Karl Benson said his conference “gets bigger but more importantly gets better” by adding Georgia State.“Both the Sun Belt and Georgia State are in similar positions with tremendous upside, tremendous potential,” Benson said.Benson said adding the Atlanta TV market “makes us a more attractive entity and we hope to maximize that in the next set of negotiations” with ESPN.The move leaves the conference with 11 football schools, “so our goal would be to get to 12,” Benson said.Georgia State president Mark Becker said he notified CAA commissioner Tom Yeager on Sunday night the school was withdrawing from the conference.“Georgia State’s withdrawal from the CAA and CAA football is predicated on the university’s desire to reclassify to FBS football which requires membership in an FBS league,” Yeager said in a statement. “We’ve been aware that GSU was having discussions with the Sun Belt Conference as the CAA could not accommodate that desire within GSU’s timeframe. The conference wishes the university well as it pursues these new interests.”Georgia State will pay a $250,000 buyout to the CAA and a $300,000 entry fee to the Sun Belt.The school is moving to the Sun Belt in all sports.
Shape of no TV coverage....form of empty stadiums!
Damn, UTSA pulled a John L. Smith on the WAC there. BAM!Looks like ASU and UALR might be getting a little nervous, as the SBC may lose a couple of schools there to C-USA.
