They should basically just call this conference the "Big East Rejects".
While true, they may end up better off than them. The common opinion is the Big East will lose AQ status after the next 2 years
The rejects will be in a healthy conference with no payouts....Boise and SDSU will be in a split conference, and tons of $ down the tube.
If Fresno was offered they need to take it.....but in a few years? Not getting that offer might be a blessing
