I realize this is water under the bridge, but it still boggles my mind how Temple and Memphis were added to the conference. Is there anyone that can convince me or at least rationalize why they were added? My take: -Perennially among the worse teams in college football on the field - Temple has been decent lately. -Nationally viewed as two of the worse teams in college football - more important. -There is absolutely no way their addition to the conference will cover their tv contract payout, in turn decreasing UConn's cut from the pie. -Once again is a hoops only generated decision, which proves the Big East still doesn't get it's all about football. (I'm in favor of the hybrid, but not catering to the hoops schools). -Once Navy comes on board all we needed was 1 more football only school to have a conference title game. -Creates an 18 team basketball conference, which actually dilutes the basketball tv product as it further reduces home and home games with schools like UConn, Louisville, Villanova, Georgetown, ND, etc. I know this has been rehashed a million times, but I was just thinking about it again today and I just can't justify it at all.
