    Default Temple to Big East

    Means likely two eastern spots still open in the Alliance.

    Temple is in the MAC in football and Atlantic 10 in all other sports. So, no impact on Alliance, except they were mentioned as a possible addition to the Alliance.

    The Alliance in its current form is at 16. If the MWS adds Utah State and SJSU as has been speculated, and UTEP doesn't want to go to the West, CUSA will have to add 2 schools and the conference goes to 18 members. UNT and FIU are the most mentioned schools to be added.

    Don't forget Navy has agreed to join the Big East in, I believe, in 2014. So, adding Temple goes to 13. They will either add 1 or 3 schools. Those will come from likely the MWC or CUSA.

    So, realignment will take yet another turn. Where will UL end to up?

    The Alliance sounds like some evil entity from the future sort of the opposite of the Federation. Do the Klingons and the Romulins have any Universities that would like to join. When the Alliance gets to 16 Universities it is rumored they will change their name to the "Empire". Evil is assumed but not stated and Darth Vader will be the Conference Commissioner. I recommend we wait for Luke Skywalker to save us - May the force be with you!

    Very interesting "But Stupid" to combine "Startrek, Starwars and Laugh-In" don't you think?

    And E. Carolina, but they might go back to the west and pick up a couple more schools from the MWC. None Of it makes much sense any more.
