Air Force Could Be Joining Big East By End Of Week, According To Rick Pitino

The Big East is in the worst shape during this latest round of conference realignment because as of now they currently have only seven football playing members come 2014, so the league needs to act fast to add teams so that they can keep their BCS affiliation. Air Force and Navy to the Big East is the latest topic and it could come to fruition by the end of this week.

The latest news is coming from Louisville Cardinal head coach Rick Pitino who is saying that Air Force, as well as Navy, will be joining the Big East by the end of this week. Pitino also went on to say that he was aware of the reports that the Big East was talking with Navy and Air Force to join prior to Syracuse and Pitt leaving to join the ACC.

So, to hear this from a basketball coach is a bit odd, but it seems that he knows the information on what the Big East is doing regarding adding teams. The Big East does need to act fast so it is just a wait-and-see approach to see if this report is true and if Air Force does decide to leave the Mountain West.
