Boise bails on Big East

By my count, the Big East has now lost more members than it ever had. Boise State will remain a member of the Mountain West Conference and will not join the Big East in 2013. The Broncos’ decision, confirmed in news releases by the the school and Mountain West on Monday, is the latest crippling […]

UTSA to C-USA

According to reports. Speaking on condition of anonymity, the source confirmed that the Roadrunners would be among a group of schools joining C-USA.

We knew it was coming.

University of Texas President William Powers Jr. was given the authority Monday to explore changing conferences, and Texas will seriously consider trying to join the Pacific-12 and the Atlantic Coast conferences if not other possibilities, sources close to the realignment discussions told the American-Statesman and business partner Hookem.com. Powers was given the charge […]

UH’s academic argument for the Big XII

Interesting strategy.

She’s still pushing for membership in the Big 12 or another high-powered athletic league, saying the school deserves a […]
