There's been a lot of speculation about whether we're staying in the Mountain West or trying to make the early jump to the Big East for this coming season.
Well, the question has been answered. Could Boise make the move and have it work out financially? Kustra says no.
There's also another factor involved here. Apparently Temple is joining the Big East for the 2012-13 season (as an all-sports member) in our stead. Which is funny because they were shafted on the original invite. Temple joining will give the Big East 13 members for 2013 (assuming Pitt and Syracuse stay for the duration of their contractually obligated 27-month wait-to-exit period). That's a very odd number that comes with it's own scheduling difficulties.
Hmmmm, really gets me wondering about a lot of things... mostly just questions I want answered from Bob Kustra and Mark Coyle.
