Last night, the 7 remaining football schools in the Big East Conference met in New York City (better still use that city while you can) met with incompetent Big East Commissioner John Marinatto regarding the state of Big East Football.
WVU AD Oliver Luck has released the following statement pertaining to last night’s meeting. The statement is after the break.
“President Clements and I represented West Virginia University at last night’s BIG EAST meeting in New York. The group concluded the meeting with a strategy to recruit top level BCS-caliber institutions that match the league’s strong athletic and academic histories and traditions.
“As I stated before, WVU is an excellent flagship, land-grant University, with national-caliber athletic and academic programs. We are, and will remain, a national player in college athletics.
“The conference office will coordinate any further discussion on this issue.”
Not exactly a ringing endorsement nor a rock-solid commitment to the Big East Conference.
