As a companion to our post asking readers to vote on whether 'Nova should make the jump to Big East football, I received an e-mail from VU Hoops reader, GPraz1, in support of making the jump to Big East football. Here are some of his key arguments:
- "Big East Football is in trouble. The [conference] needs new teams to join and its existing teams are at risk of defection. New entrants will demand admission to the basketball league. How can [the Big East Conference] add more basketball teams? Who would be "asked" to leave?"
"If you love NOVA basketball you better get behind football. Look at the AP top 25 basketball rankings from 2000 until now. In 2002 there were 7 teams not in FBS. There are two today. Do you see the trend?"
