What is your Vision of the future Big East? - Wilkie01 - 10-18-2006 04:20 PM
Will it be an all-sports conference, a hybrid conference, or a confederacy between a basketball conference and a football conference?
Key issues for Big East:
Notre Dame Football
9th football team

I would prefer an all-sports conference myself, but what the future holds is beyond my vision.

I want an all-sports conference, also.

Why does it matter that some schools don't play division I-A football?
- Wilkie01 - 10-18-2006 04:54 PM
Well, we need to make room for the 9th and 10th 1A football teams. Of course Notre Dame and Villanova could solve this problem, but they will not.

But why does the BE need another team to play DI-A football? It's doing fine with eight.

I would like an all sports conference but i dont see it happenning anytime soon.
as for the poster that ask why is that important? I think that for a league to succeed and grow ALL members must be in the same boat. It doesnt help when large number in the league do not share in success or failure in one of the main money making and exposure sports.

or why not drop ND upgrade Villanova and add a replacement team for ND that plays all sports. Ten teams in Football and still sixteen b-ball schools.

So, if the conference is ever raided again, we will have enough teams to survive a raid!

Quote:Key issues for Big East:
-- As long as NBC/TV Networks want to broadcast ND football...they will have no interest in BE football. The Irish will be here as long as there is a 16 team league, the Catholic schools love having them in hoops and frankly we still need them for bowls
-- Nova is not coming. There are to many money issues.
-- I want an all sports league too. However, we need to look around. Who do you want to add after the split? Memphis? UCF? All they are going to do is water down what is becoming a pretty good little football league. Now if Penn St comes calling that changes the equation. The only school I would add for football right now is Navy. There are a traditional Eastern team, have a good market, the bowls like them and they have a relationship with ND. Other then that the pickins are slim.
-- Untill a quality all sports canidate presents itself, lets just sit back and enjoy the current BE. Football is getting better each yr and the hoops is GREAT
