Davidson has no historic ties with any current Big East team, so i see them as an extreme longshot.

I would think the Big East is very happy as it is. If anything, they'd take UConn if UConn drops football or drops a division (neither of which is likely).

For the most part, these schools won't have problems filling out non-conference schedules. Even the smaller schools in the Big East (Providence, Seton Hall, St. John's) won't have any issues getting local schools from lower ranked conferences to play them. The Big East also has the Gavitt games -- all 10 BE schools take part. Don't they also have a challenge with the ACC?

Any of the top 7 conferences would schedule a challenge with them.

No real need to expand, unless Fox puts pressure on them to do so. They can remain as they are -- one of the top conferences in the country.

Marquette is up there as well. At least you have company.

fyi, in terms of enrollment, Providence is the smallest, Seton Hall is in the middle and St. Johns is 2nd largest.
