Once we were shutout from the ACC our options were limited. Joining the Big East (old BE, new BE.....doesn't matter) will, in time, be viewed as a great move. Football will survive as an independent, with scheduling flexibility, drivable road trips for fans, and opportunities for profitable "buy" games. Basketball (M&W) will garner huge dividends from increased national TV exposure and regional rivalries. Only baseball's league competition will be diminished by comparison to the AAC, but the fabulous new facility will enhance the prospect of bringing in high-level non-league opponents.
