Big East Begins Expansion Plans

Big East President Mike Tranghese has released the first announcement on the shape of the future Big East.

"The main purpose of this meeting was to deal with the timely issues that warrant our immediate attention and action. Specifically, the group reaffirmed its commitment to remain a strong and highly competitive I-A conference," said Commissioner Michael Tranghese. "We also discussed scheduling issues. We formally moved up the timeline for integrating Connecticut into our schedules as one of the league's full-time playing members for the 2004 season. We agreed that any new members or members would not be invited to begin participation before the 2005-06 season."
