Temple Meeting Wednesday About Big East Invitation, According To Report

The Temple Owls have been telling recruits for almost a year that they're going to soon make a return to the Big East. So now that it's time to go ahead and take the leap, Temple officials are going to have a meeting to talk about whether the school should actually make a return to the Big East. CSNPhilly.com reports:

Temple University's Board of Trustees will meet via conference call Wednesday afternoon to discuss the fate of the school's athletic program and perhaps accept an invitation to become a member of the Big East Conference in all sports.

Temple was a member of the Big East until 2004, when it was shooed away due to its football program. Since then, it has put together a real, live MAC powerhouse. If Temple was to rejoin, it would be for all sports and for the 2012-2013 seasons, which would patch the hole in the Big East's schedule left by the departure of the West Virginia Mountaineers.
