Split Thread: Will the Big East lose it's automatic BCS bid?

    Not as long as Mike Tranghese is running the BCS commitee.

    Tranghese doesn't have a choice, unless he wants to re-write the BCS guidelines and I don't think the other conferences will agree to a change like that. As soon as the Big Least's average BCS final ranking drops outta the top 12, they're done.

    Isn't that the average of the past 3 years? If so that means the Big East will probably get at least 1 more year before they lose the BCS game. Pitt's finish outside of the top 25 this year might speed that up a little.

    They are counting Louisville as one of their own (and Miami when they were in the conference)...

    The big least should be out... it prob. will in a couple of years. The MAC and C-USA are on the same level as the Big Least...

    No, IMO the MAC is clearly much better than the Big Least. I'd put Conf. USA on the same page, but the MAC is much better.

    The Big East will survive. It is four years. If the 4-year total adds up to more than 48, they come under review (translation: they have to cut a deal to stay $$$$$). Next year they have to stay better than 29, and I don't even know what they do with 25+ teams.

    2001 1 (Miami)
    2002 1 (Miami)
    2003 9 (Miami)
    2004 10 (Louisville)
    2005
    2006
    2007

    Beyond 2005, Tranghese is smart. That conference is so crappy that somebody will probably be able to do 10 or 11, even if it's a different team every year. If they falter, they'll just take a smaller payout in exchange for staying.
