  With all of this talk about about possible Big East expansion now is the time to look at the possible candidates.  At this point lets assume no BCS team or Notre Dame will switch to the Big East.  So that leaves us non BCS schools. We only need football playing schools at this time.  Last time expansion happened the Big East looked at CUSA and that very well may happen again but I will include other schools.  I'm going to break this thread into 5 threads 1) will be the candidates 2) will be the academics and prestige at those schools 3) will be age, size and market 4)facilities 5)will be athletics.
