08:19 AM ET 03.27 | The conference merry-go-round is about to spin again. Tulsa will join the soon-to-be-renamed Big East Conference in 2014, while East Carolina will be added as a full member, sources told ESPN. The league's presidents are expected to vote on adding the Golden Hurricane by next week, sources told ESPN's Andy Katz. A source told ESPN that the addition of Tulsa is "imminent." Adding the Golden Hurricane would give the league 12 schools when Navy joins in 2015. East Carolina and the Big East initially announced that ECU was joining the league as a football-only member. However, because of the recent defections, the Pirates will join as a full member in 2014, sources said.

I've seen most of this story here before but the ECU news was added to this one.

I posted this before but I suggest The All Over America Conference as the new name for the Big East.

I struggle with the lure of wanting to see the soon-to-be-renamed conference implode and be no more.

Besides Boise State, is there another decent football squad left in the soon-to-be-renamed conference (STBRC)

Boise State is no longer joining the conference formerly known as the Big East..

I think this is the third time in 3 days that we've had a Tulsa to Big East thread. At some point, about two days ago, it stops being news or a rumor.

The headline should read "desperate" not "imminent."

Well, that was supposed to have been followed by, "The FN 3 Rs," but whatever browser I'm using (Safari, Explorer, Mozilla), FN has a purpose of its own...
