with the AQ status gone, can we ditch the idea of joining the Big East and focus on making the MAC a better conference?
Adding ODU or James Madison to the MAC would help basketball and soccer.
No. AQ or not, the BE is still a better conference and we should want to move up beyond the MAC, not bring in more FCS teams that we will then have to compete against for recruits, and who may then get to the next level before us. We have already been leapfrogged by the likes of Marshall, UConn, UCF, etc.
