  There's a fairly stong correlation between the two ** -- marcbvtgm  10/13/2014 4:42PM
  It's not about market share any longer.  -- Atlee Hokie  10/13/2014 2:09PM

  I can't fathom who ND would care enough about to invite -- btownhokie  10/14/2014 2:10PM
  Texas is only coming w/ regional tag alongs.  -- chuckd4vt  10/16/2014 5:00PM
  I actually think that UCF and ECU would be the worst candidates -- CobbCountyHokie  10/10/2014 3:24PM
  I think that would be a good move for the SEC -- Bird of Prey  10/11/2014 10:13AM
  UCF or USF, plus ECU might add value to Big 12. -- Old Line Hokie  10/10/2014 2:45PM

  There is much more at stake here than in hoops tho. -- Maroon Baboon  10/09/2014 09:47AM
  There is going to be subjectivity involved, surely. -- Maroon Baboon  10/09/2014 11:11AM
