East Carolina & Memphis Want to Help the Big East Suck Even More

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on May 16, 2008

The University of Memphis officials have been in serious talks with the Big East about joining the conference which would make the Big East the absolute weakest conference in the history of college football. (No offense Memphis fans)

Obviously this would move would benefit the Tiger Football program more than any other. What would it mean though for Memphis basketball? John Calipari has proven that he can prosper as the Big Fish in a small pond (3 straight 30 plus win seasons), would he enjoy knocking heads in the rugged and basketball tradition rich Big East Conference?

I think he would.

However as for as football is concerned the Big Least already has a plethora of bad teams and I’m not sure if this would help matters, but I’ll play devils advocate.

Memphis could be extremely tough in football if they would ever get a legitimate conference. Right now they are being raided by Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Arkansas, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, and Kentucky. That could change if Memphis was in the Big East. In addition, the other Big East teams would love to infiltrate the rich football recruits of the South.

Then again I think I made myself look retarded with that statement because the SEC rules damn it!

There’s also another school that wants to help the Big East suck even more at football and that is East Carolina.

ECU is believed to be open to guaranteeing the purchase of 2,500 tickets to Big East away games.

Think about that. At $40 a pop, that’s another $100,000 for the home school in gate money. Notre Dame is the only school in the nation that would even attempt a guarantee like that.

And here is East Carolina, ready to go with that plus a whole lot more, all on a trial basis.

ECU insiders and supporters are convinced that it is not afraid to take risks.

Then again playing football in the Big Least isn’t exactly a risk.
