[quote="GoSpikes, post:2, topic:3057"]It will be interesting to see how Nova does in the future. [b] The three teams leaving the Big East [/b] are going to hurt the strength of the conference and maybe that will impact the attractiveness of Nova to recruits in the long run.[/quote]
We should just change the name of the BIG EAST. It is no longer ‘BIG’, and it is no longer in the ‘EAST’.
Here is my suggestion:
THE NEW JERSEY CONFERENCE
This pays homage to fact that the only football program holdover that will be in the former BIG EAST conference this coming season (2012) that was also in the conference in 2003, is Rutgers.
Shouldn’t that just be the New York Conference, since All New York Teams play in Jersey anyway.
It’s more like Rutgers, UConn and a bunch of Catholic Schools. I honestly don’t know if I could name two thirds of the basketball Big East anymore.
I’m going to take on this challenge. Let me try!
UConn, Notre Dame, Louisville, Marquette, Memphis, San Diego State, Houston, SMU, Providence, Rutgers, Cincinnati, Depaul, UCF, USF.
SHOW ME THE MONEY?!
EDIT: Forgot Villanova
