Can the Big East Survive ?

By
Real Estate Agent with KW Elite

     We were all shocked by the announcement last week about the defections of two Big East teams,Pitt and Cuse. The were courted into the expanding ACC(who now has pilfered 5 former Big East members). Started as a Basketball league the Big East has struggled on the football field. The Big East basketball program is extremely talented yet, but massive recruiting is needed to save the Football side of things ! So who's out there that could help turn the program around ? I see several good possible additions:

     1. Navy- It appears the mid shipmen are about ready to join !

     2. Temple- They are ready to become the "Beast of the East" as shown by their games vs, PSU & MD.

     3. ECU- The Carolina Market is huge for football and the Pirates are well loved !

     4. Houston - Would be a great traveling partner for TCU(new member next year).

     5. Iowa State- They are unloved in the dysfunctional Big 12 and would enhance their program by gaining a new identity !

     6. CFU - The Florida Market loves it's football . A great partner for the S.FL Bulls !

     Well there you have it , the Big East can be saved if it makes the right moves ! What's your take on this ?

Michael, Having UConn nearby, we do attend their football games at the newer stadium in East Hartford, Ct. For a young team, they do very well.  The site was once an airport for the Pratt & Whitney Engineers, but, that changed years ago.  Now, it's a mega sports complex.  There is a sporting goods store, nearby, as well.  They have tried to fill the space and time with music venues.  The Rolling Stones played there, last year.  Awesome stuff!

As of the founding of our group 10/21/11 the Big East is about to offer Houston,SMU,UCF,Navy Air Force and Boise State memberships. Additionally they are determined to hold both Pitt and syracuse to the 27 month departure rule ! This is to discourage anyone else defecting (to maybe Bevo's Big12).

One more update ! The Big East will survive for quite awhile into the future, but as a NON Football, Basketball primarily Conference !!! All of the former Big East Football teams will be forming a new league the AAC for the 2013 football season. Stay tuned for a post or two about the new AAC.
