  9. You know folks, I was roundly criticized for my ideas on the Big East, NYU and other schools. In light of Penn State, I agree with what was said about NYU deemphasizing sport. Penn State should do the same. Immediately. The toothless beat that is the NCAA can say what it wants; so can the Big 10. Penn State should be over. Go raid Maryland or whoever else you think fits the academic/demographic footprint. The sport has become a travesty....USC, Ohio State, Miami and now this. Awful. Just awful. Why can't we have a system like they have in Canada with Junion Hockey?
  10. Its simple what Penn State must do in the face of these crimes: De-emphasize sports. CCNY - one of the biggest basketball powers of its era, did so after a point-shaving scandal rocked the university; NYU did the same. NYU has a top-tier MBA program, a top-tier law school and a top-tier media program. CCNY and NYU have done fine without major sports, thank you. Yes, I know. Why make the athletes pay? Is Penn State about athletics or education. The only way to honor the vicitms, to shop support for them is to get rid of athletics. It is the only way.
  11. Rams: Get a grip. Try, at least for one day, not to be an ass, please. And, you obviously know nothing about which Mexican school approached the NCAA.
  12. Well, I don't think NYU would have to compete for athletes all that hard. There happens to be a huge and deep reservior of talent here in the City alone. Does NYU have high academic standards? Sure. They say its graduate business program is top 10. I graduated from it. I disagree. Top 20 maybe. Not top 10. Problem is a sutiable stadium. NYU hoped to build one on the Brooklyn side of the East River at one point. If a soccer stadium came to be for say an MLS expansion team (think Cosmos, think outside of CitiField), that's one possibility. I also did some digging. The 1941 NYU football schedule: 9/22 scrimmage Temple 9/27 W 25-7 PMC (OF) 6,000 10/4 W 6-0 at Lafayette 7,000 10/11 L 7-49 Texas A&M (YS) 18,000 10/18 L 0-31 Syracuse (YS) 10,000 10/25 L 0-13 at Holy Cross 10,000 10/31 L 0-42 Penn State (Polo Grounds) (n) 10,691 11/8 L 0-26 Missouri (YS) 6,700 11/15 L 0-45 Tulane (YS) 8,100 11/29 L 9-30 Fordham (YS) 31,000 They stunk but look - Tex A & M, 'Cuse, Penn State...... Who is to say they can't or won't do it again?
  13. So why don't you tell me about Jo Pa and the Big East? NYU killed all sports because of betting scandals. NYU-CCNY was a big deal at the Garden. NYU played a national football schedule. NYU has a huge alumni base. NYU is one of the richest schools in the country. If they wanted to start a football program with an eye on joining a conference such as the Big East, or g-d forbid, the ACC, they could do it. The ACC is an utter joke to me. They bought their stability by raiding conferences because they could grow organically (that means adding schools from lower conferences like East Carolina). I'm sure if Florida State wanted to create a conference it could, given their name. I wouldn't be so sure a 14-team or 16-team ACC lasts. If any Mexican school makes it into the NCAA, others are sure to follow. That opens a huge media market for the likes of ESPN and Fox.
  14. You folks are forgetting a few things. Firstly, you want to turn the ACC on its head and into C-USA (if I'm the Big East, that's what I would do) - go after Virginia and Maryland. Secondly this is just about moving pegs around. If you want to talk real expansion, how many schools gave up football since say the mid 70's? University of Tampa (Freddie Solomon's school - the former Dolphins receiver), Wichita State, etc. that given the right set of circumstances, would love to get back in the game? At one time NYU had a prominent program (and yes there is talk about starting a football program). There is no shortage of schools that, if given the money and proper economic circumstances, would consider starting a program or making a jump. Georgetown, St. Johns, etc. Could you imagine a Big East with NYU and St. Johns both playing at Citifield? Even if the ACC goes to 16 and the Big East is killed off, there is no guarantee the ACC will stay the ACC. Remember, it was Brigham Young who led the WAC breakaway schools to start the Mountain West. And, guess what? They left. Who is to say that Clemson, Florida State and a few others don't leave to form their own conference? (a point of reference would be how companies became huge conglomerates through mergers in the 80s and how "thin" is the new "in"). And speaking of West Virginia, I happen to know Oliver Luck and have been unfortunate to have had to deal with him several times. He is a scumbag. Here's a tidbit for you. In August, it was announced that an unidentified Mexican school (which happens to be one of the Universities in Monterrey) had sought out the NCAA to start on the road to becoming an NCAA member. Now wouldn't the WAC love that?
