First, I don’t think Fox will do that.And who is a better candidate than VCU? Gonzaga is too far if basketball and Olympics are married together, perhaps even if the two weren't a package deal. Xavier and Dayton have always had an acrimonious relationship. SLU seems like a good choice, but their success and audience #s always seem to disappoint. WSU may have the best hardwood bonafines, but its outside the Big Easts footprint, nowhere near the academic level of the other Big East schools, and is still recovering from the scandals accompanying their only successful coach.
I mean, if Fox told the big east to expand, who do you think they'd pick?
But if they do, schools like Richmond and Davidson might fit their model better than VCU.
