Could the Big East do a protected home-and-home?


Until we get a 9th football member (which is going to be impossible without making the bloated basketball conference even crazier), has anyone ever thought up having a protected home-and-home with a team every year in football?  I think so, especially since there are some natural fits already:

Pitt-WVU

Louisville-Cincy

 

That leaves what to do with Rutgers, UConn, USF, and most importantly Syracuse.  The question is do you think it would be good to have a protected home-and-home for an 8th conference game?  And assuming we don't go with USF, do you think we should go with Rutgers or UConn?  Rutgers seems like the natural fit, I think, mainly because UConn and USF joined the league recently (football-wise anyway; UConn founded the original basketball Big East), and Rutgers has been in the Big East as long as it sponsored football.  Normally I would have said UConn because they're a bigger rival overall than Rutgers (looking beyond football), but if that were the case, then Georgetown would HAVE to be our biggest lacrosse rival.  Didn't think so.  So I'd go with a home-and-home with Rutgers every year.
