With future Big East Football Powerhouse TCU (it's a given right?) winning the Rose Bowl, I think the Big East should act fast & add Central Florida right now.
Their football team is coming off their best year ever & hasn't been relevant since Daunte Culpepper was there.
They just beat an SEC team (Georgia) in the Liberty Bowl (10-6) giving them their 1st bowl win ever.
The Knights (11-3) had never won more than 10 games in a season and had lost their first three bowl games, including their last visit here in 2007. The Conference USA champs made this win even sweeter by knocking off a Southeastern Conference team in the process.- AP
Their Basketball team is also ranked in the top 25 for the 1st time in school history, as of today they are 18 & 19 in the polls.
To me it seems like a no-brainer, & we've discussed the instant rivalry with USF in Tampa (for those who didn't know UCF is in Orlando). I actually thought they should have been added over USF when Miami, Va Tech & BC bailed.
I also hear they have a dedicated fan base?
It would put the Football #s @ 10 (11 if Nova joins) & Basketball at 18 (what's 1 more after 17?)
Seems like the right move.
