It's really not that bad

I'll admit, the sky fell yesterday with the news of WVU to the Big 12.  I freaked out, I though my life as a UofL fan was over.  But what I'm slowly realizing is that it really does not matter. The Big East as it stands is down to merely 5 football schools.  Now I'm not a big insider or someone who knows every facet of the game but I don't believe that this is a seriously bad thing.  It's taking these other conferences a long time to add more schools and we are trying to add quite a few.  

So what we didn't get picked by the Big 12 and yes the dream of playing the likes of Oklahoma, TCU, Texas, OK State, Tex Tech in the Oven is just a great dream.   However lets be honest about our program, collision course set aside.  Being in the big east as it was before was amazing because you had the easiest road in the BCS conferences to get to the big bowl games.  Now with that being said you can dream and talk about the train moving and the collision course all you want.  But none of us want to be the UK of SEC.  We want to matter year in year out.  

Our best bet for that is in the newly reformed Big East.  If all of this stuff works out and the Big East gets up to 12 teams with the likes of UCF, Boise, military schools etc...... They aren't going to just take away the automatic bid.  The conference will become stronger than when it had a shitty Syracuse, WVU or an always underachieving PITT. 

I just say that right now we need to not hit the panic button.  Trust in our AD and our President and believe that they know what is best for us.

Personally I love the thought of playing football in the Big 12.  However a 12 team Big East with all of these additions of the good schools from the non-AQ conferences will secure our bid and give us the chance for exciting games as well as exciting battles for the Big East Championship.

 

Just please everyone, take a deep breath.  We panicked yesterday.  Today lets be reasonable and realize it's really not that bad. 

After all I remember when we were in Conference USA and dominating fools and the fans still came out to the games.
