We've been reading for almost a year that the Temple Owls are going to return to the Big East in 2012. Even though it looked like realignment had died down for the time being, reports flared up again over the past week that we are still living in Temple-realignmenty times. The MAC side of things appears to think it'll happen any minute now.
And according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, things are indeed in rapid motion:
Multiple sources, Big East presidents began meeting at 8 am, voting on adding #Temple football in 2012 and all other sports in 2013— Keith Pompey (@pompeysgridlock) March 7, 2012
Temple was a member of the Big East until 2004, when it was booted for its unpopular football program. In the MAC, that program has become slightly more popular, but everything in the MAC is an utter joy to behold, so of course it has.
