Re: Penn State wanted into the Big East and got rejected. (LINK)


Not defending the Big East in any way but they took Pitt for basketball reasons. Football wasn't remotely part of the equation in the early 80's. They wanted the Pittsburgh basketball market. Penn State totally sucked (and always has) in hoops. Even if Penn State would have joined the Big East they would have eventually found the B1G at some point.
