Conference realignment is still going on and conferences like the Big East are still trying to add teams while at the same time being concerned with being poached. Some of the teams the Big East was looking to add were the three service academies; Air Force, Navy, and Army.
Unfortunately for the Big East, it does not seem like the Army Black Knights are an option to join. Army's athletic director, Boo Corrigan, indicated to the Washington Post that they are content with their independent status.
"Clearly we're following everything right now, but we are very comfortable where we are as an independent, and we are comfortable with the Patriot League," Corrigan said in a telephone interview. "We have great respect for the Big East and John Marinatto. But as we look at things today, we are comfortable where we are."
