According to sources familiar with the process, but not authorized to talk about any negotiations, the Big East is focusing on two areas, with SMU, Central Florida ,Navy and Temple as the primary schools being looked at. Air Force is also being considered, but that seems more remote of a possibility

Why, it's almost as if the Big East conference leadership hates football and is intentionally trying to destroy it! SMU and UCF are on the top of the list, regardless of the fact that the Big East already has teams in Florida and Dallas. Houston is nowhere to be seen, and Temple remains a second-tier candidate. Up until the dying end, all the Big East cares about is unjustly enriching half of its members while clubbing the other half over the head with a bat. The conference is leaving its best remaining cards on the table, and still blathering on about returning to the federated system that got them into this mess in the first place, because the alternative would be actually letting Big East football flex its muscles and make decisions with the intention of actually maximizing conference revenue for a change.
