Big East Officially a Football Mid-Major

Big East Officially a Football Mid-Major 


BCS deal that includes the "Group of 5" non-AQ conferences that includes the Big East, C-USA, Sun Belt, Mountain West, and MAC.  While the Big East would have most frequently earned this spot in the past, it puts them on the same playing field as anybody else that is non-AQ.

Hmmm......who would have thought adding a junior college could drag a conference down so quickly.

What will the shared money be per school could it pull teams on the fence up it may help us.Maybe independents like us and BYU and NMSU will benefit .The sixty to seventy teams not in the big five could get a half million a year possibly one more reason to stay FBS.The Boise haters have to love that SDSU will probably win the MWC and the Big East is the most ridiculed conference in football.

I believe the 5 non-aq will split something around $95 million a year (i.e. around 20% of total).  Not sure what formula they will use to decide how much each conference gets though.

Since the MAC owns the BIG EAST this year and the SBC has had a good year the money will probably be split evenly.Ranking the non big five is impossible with all the changes.Notre Dame will get a special deal the rest of the teams an equal share I would guess.

How does the Mac own the big least? Most recent power ranking by sagarin: big east # 6. Mac # 12! What are you basing it on...a couple of cross over games? Get a life.

Maybe they do not own them but the MAC and SBC have had a unexpected good years beating BCS teams.The MAC teams beat undefeated Big East teams that is what makes it look so bad for the Big East.The top WAC teams might be better than the top MWC teams this year for another example.
