Later this evening, East Carolina applied to join the Big East. Although ECU has applied to join to Big East, they are still focusing on staying in C-USA and strengthen it. I do no think adding ECU would strengthen Big East football very much, it would absolutely do nothing to our basketball competence. The other schools in contact with the BE are Army, Air Force, Navy, and Central Florida. I think Louisville's best option would be to depart from the BE and join the Big 12, but hey, who wouldn't miss playing in The Garden every March?
