    That's not true, dools. ETSU, when it had football, was I-AA, but I-A in hoops.

    Not what I meant. To be Division I in hoops, you have to have a football team that at least plays in non-scholarship Division I-AA (such as what Georgetown, St. John's, Austin Peay, Morehead State, etc., do). For example, Temple needs to keep a football team to stay in the Atlantic 10.

    Beamer Ball = Thug life. Funny how ESPN is just now catching on to the goonery that has been Virginia Tech for years. And nice job by the player bustin' a move on the field down 20-3. Where's Billy Curry when I need him. He woulda' dragged that kid off the field by his right testicle.

    Just got back from the lamest DI-A football environment (Temple doesn't count as DI-A), wow VT's offense sucks. Central Michigan, BYU and Clemson tore through that BC defense and they couldn't do a thing.

    There is no such thing as I-AA basketball.

    Gonzaga, Wright State, Boston University, Vermont for starters don't have football.

    KP, apparently BC is only allowed to have one Thursday night game every four years because the neighbors bitch about the noise. They also won't allow them to expand the stadium.

    yessir, Swofford, ya'll got yo'self a football PAHERHAASE up there in Chesnut Hill. They're not even the strongest group IN THEIR OWN NEIGHBORHOOD.

    Probably grandfathered in, as would be ETSU, Long Beach State, etc. I don't think you can just drop football now and keep Division I-A status. I'm sure the MAC would not have taken Temple if it had any inkling it would drop football.

    And I didn't say there was I-AA basketball.

    If you wanna blame anyone for that giant sucking sound in South Philly direct your eye to northwest Philly and glare at Villanova. That school full of good catholic boys wanted no parts of Temple as a full member of the Big East because they didnt want to have to recruit against Cheyney. I've heard rumors that the football schools are gonna break away from the basketball schools in five years. Given the stupidity that some of the football schools have had to edure so that dynasties like Villanova and Providence can flourish I can only pray this is true.

    It would be a shame for Louisville, Cincinnati and Notre Dame to not be playing Georgetown, Villanova (which is a real good I-AA football team) and Seton Hall in the same conference. It's the best basketball league if they don't squabble it away.

    It's too big, Dooley. A 16-team basketball conference is insane.

    There's a helluva lot of strength in those numbers, tho, as far as TV contract and conference tournament go. And there's the drama about how many decades it will take for South Florida to have a winning league mark.

    Also include UNC Wilmington, Charlotte and Campbell (though the Camels are about to jump back into football).
