TCU and potentially ECU are an upgrade from pitt and cuse. However, big east football is still extremely unstable. Recruiting MUST improve over the next 2-3 years or else the league will not exist. USF is having success lately and with Miami's program in big trouble their recruiting should pick up quite a bit over the next few years. Although the big east isn't the SEC, TCU should have more success recruiting by being in the league and exposure in Texas will help some big east schools. If ECU comes, than their recruiting will increase and they are in a fairly rich recruiting area and are very popular in local media markets.
i feel if we just add memphis which is good in football and good and basketball we would be fine. ecu is good in football but not in basketball, i think if wvu wins tonight and usf can run the table it will show that big east football isn't down and that cuse football just sucks and pitt is idk
Memphis won 1 game last year, 2 games two years ago, and is 1-3 this year with the 42-0 loss to SMU at home today....I would take ECU over Memphis everyday of the week. The big east has enough good basketball schools. From UConn's perspective getting ECU over Memphis is much more beneficial.
