Why did they add Tulane?! They suck! It's obvious all they want is the Superdome for the Big East Championship. RayJay isn't good enough for them.
He says Tulane will announce at 2 pm today they are joining the Big East. He also says East Carolina will announce today they are joining as a football-only member in 2014. Wonder how the basketball schools feel about these additions? Is this even true? If ESPN says it...
Awesome game! Ryan Nassib showed great poise and skill down the stretch to pull out the win and become bowl-eligible. Got a little depressing when the announcers started talking about Maryland and Rutgers bolting for the Big Ten...
With just a one-year contract, Kevin Ollie is making an investment in the future of his program.
I don't know how many of you care about sports outside football and basketball (and maybe baseball), but UCF will take the Conference USA women's soccer title to the Big East. And their star goalkeeper, Lianne Maldonado (6 regular-season shutouts, three straight in the conference tournament), is a junior. So we'll have her in the net for our first season in the Big East. UCF has been in the NCAA tournament quite a bit recently, and met North Carolina in the very first NCAA women's soccer national championship in 1982. The team is #20 in the nation right now with a 17-4-1 overall record. (Now relinked to the UCF athletics website.)
Found an interesting article this Monday morning written by an East Carolina fan outlining why ECU would be a good expansion candidate for the Big East. Sure, they'd be a decent addition in basketball and football, but how many eyeballs do they add? Are they worth adding just for the sake of adding someone else?
