Big East contacts UNLV and Fresno State


quote:

The Big East has “reached out” to both Fresno State and UNLV to join the league on the football side, CBSSports.com has learned. In addition, BYU and Big East commissioner Mike Aresco have at least had informal conversations.

UNLV and Fresno have “definitely” talked to Aresco, according to a source. However, the talks are being kept as secret as possible to keep from “offending people,” such as regents and boards of regents and trustees at those schools.

Aresco is aggressively trying to assemble a group of football-playing schools to keep under the Big East banner.

At least they're trying.

Also, UNLV is clearly a grab to try and get the basketball schools from changing their mind about bailing

The Big East needs a name change in the worst way.

Balling is an adjective? Conference USA is minor league. The Big East is almost history.
