Now that Pitt and Syracuse are leaving the Big East (leaving it with only 6 football playing schools), ECU's hopes of joining the Big East as a football-only school have probably improved dramatically.
On the other hand, that means that ECU will be searching for a home for the rest of its sports...which means get ready for Terry Holland to call Tom Yeager about re-joining the CAA.
We all know that Yeager would take them back (heck he took RICHMOND - which shows the level of the man's self-respect - back in football).
But - assuming no one leaves - does going above 12 teams make any sense for conference MEMBERS (not the league office) ? And, if so, why would it be in the interest of CAA members for ECU to be that school?
