BIG12 to become BIG16

I read Boneyard daily, but I have never posted here. Don't send the Grammar Police either just here to make a few points. I don't see the BIG12 adding Boise nor do I see them adding another Texas school. Texas politics may change that. The BIG12 is going to have to expand east in order to get travel partners for UCF, UC and WVU. You can travel across the country in football but not in the other sports and everyone knows this. The BIG12 has to move east. They will have 2 division East and West. The West division will be TTU, TCU, Baylor, OSU, UK, KSU, ISU and Houston. East division will be WVU, UC, UCF, Memphis, USF, ECU, Tulane and Temple. Navy is not preferred because they are football only and may have to remain in the AAC as it is reconfigured. Tulsa will have to go west to the Mountain West Conference OSU will not want them in the same conference (ie ECU and the tarholes). SMU may have to go to the Mountain West Conference as well, depending on the politics in Texas. ECU is in a place where we will need and have to win football games. We control our destiny. All the BS about APP and Marshall to the AAC is crazy and very short sited. They may make it to the AAC but ECU will be gone before that happens. It will take a couple of years for what I see coming to play out that's why it is so important to win and for us to support the PIRATES. ECU is so much better positioned than people on this board can understand. I'm not a glass half full type of person nor half empty. We may not be on the next train moving up BUT we will be able to get on it shortly if we can not shoot ourselves in the foot. It's not when you get on, it's that you are ON the train. Also KU
