Big East AD's Give the Hokies Their Stamp of Approval

On Wednesday, the Big East athletic directors voted by an "overwhelming margin" to recommend to their school presidents that Virginia Tech be admitted into the Big East conference.  This, of course, is just step one, but it's an important one.

Mitch Vingle of the Charleston Gazette is the man when it comes to Big East information, and here is his report on the vote and what he expects to happen from here on:

Big East ADs give Hokies the OK - May 27, 1999

All good Hokies know to be encouraged, but to not count their Big East chickens before they hatch.  Rejection by the school presidents could still occur, although I do want to state publicly that if Mitch is calling it a done deal, he's one of the most reliable sources you could possibly hear that come from.  I don't know who Mitch knows, but he knows somebody.

Anyway, I thought I would take what may be one last opportunity to play Devil's Advocate, or more accurately, Mr. Negative.  Sort of.   In today's Special Feature, I talk about what my thoughts are going to be if we don't get into the Big East.

Maybe next month, I'll get to give you my thoughts on what I think about getting into the Big East.  Maybe.
