DePaul, Marq, Creighton, Dayton, X, Butler, SLU - after that you can make your own argument for the rest to make up a 12 team conf. What you are suggesting is what some on here have been saying for sometime.

That makes the most sense to me. It's all only going to get worse once Syracuse & Pitt leave for the ACC & I'd be willing to bet that UConn & one other team jump ship to the ACC too, and that'll be the first 16 team mega-conference (disclaimer: not at all an original thought). Then you'll have the B1G and SEC grabbing football programs so they can get to 16 as well.

If everybody raids the Big East for football (which I could see for teams like Louisville, Rutgers & maybe even Cinci), that could be good for SLU if it leaves Marquette & DePaul without a home.

I know Majerus crows all the time about the travel requirements that being in the A-10 causes; perhaps this will be the first move that will eventually lead to SLU moving back to a Midwest-based conference? Unfortunately it's football that's driving this whole thing. Who are the best basketball-only programs out there as you guys see it? It might make sense for them to just go ahead & band together now.

and what exactly does mi$$ouri gain with the pitiful nonconference schedule it plays now?


Seriously though, what Mizzou gets from its non-conference schedule (which this year featured 2 Big East teams, 1 Pac 12 team, and 1 B1G team) is they win, and have a good RPI, and make the tournament, and not have to worry about whether or not SLU played way over their heads and pulled off a big upset that might hurt them come Tourney time.

You know what they say: "don't feed the trolls" . . . guess that's why there's 137 replies to this thread, most of them after I got here.

Since you definitely vanquished the evil Mizzou troll today I'll just go back under my bridge with my striped tail tucked between my legs.

Wait, is it "don't feed the trolls" or "you gotta pay the troll toll"? I always forget.

SLU21: Im not sure anyone has been to small to TigerLuke. (TigerLuke? Im sorry, that was a rushed user name. You sound like a villian out of an 80's Hong Kong produced action movie.) Its been a basketball talk.


Yeah I don't love the handle either, but I believe I was 14 or 15 years old when I made this profile, so I'm stuck with it.
