i agree! don't forget about what got us here.
I'd hate to end our Marshall tradition too.
I agree must continue Marshall as well.
Probably won't have room for both. So Marshall or USM?
Big East...err...AAC Bound.
My vote would be to rotate.
Works for me, but does it work for those schools?
I would think so simply for no other reason than(provided their CUSA affiliation stays the same)the ECU game would be the biggest draw on their schedule.
I will say that all things being equal I do feel for USM. They picked a terrible time to toss up an 0fer season.
Doesn't our tradition with USM stem from the fact that we've literally played them every season? Breaks that streak if we rotate Marshall and USM :(

I fully agree, and with Marshall. Only 3 games scheduled for 2014 and 2015. If we don't schedule a Division 2 school, maybe we play USM/Marshall.
now that we are Big East shouldn't we try to schedule bigger opponents than going back and scheduling CUSA? Granted Big East is the new CUSA but at least it has some more recognition. We always complained about playing CUSA teams and now most of the good teams from CUSA are with us in Big East. I really hate to see these traditions die with our history with the two programs (USM and Marshall) but I would rather see us try to continue scheduling tougher OOC games (or at least 3 of our 4 maybe use USM or Marshall as the 4th). Just saying in the view of growing and developing the program I think it would be in our benefit to schedule stronger opponents now that we are in a tougher conference rather than going backwards and scheduling CUSA opponents all over again.
As much as I want to see the Southern Miss games continue, it's still a pretty far trip. I'm sure if TH and Co. have a choice, they'll choose Marshall, based on location.

ECU and Marshall have played many times but November 14,1970 has formed a bond that will be hard to break. ECU's history with S.Miss. may be longest as to who we have played. Both games will be longed remembered and if there can be a way to keep playing those two schools would be nice. As things sat now ECU must wait to see how our games in the BE will be scheduled before we can reach out to these two schools
