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

The Big East took Pitt instead. That has to be the biggest blunder possibly ever in expansion.

If they take Penn State, the ACC probably doesn't exist and the Big East has the whole east coast. It's really amazing how things back fired over that decision.

PS Tranghesee gets a lot of flack, but he knew that this was a mistake. He also said that when the ACC raided the Big East that if every school acted like VT the Big East would have survived. The WVU fans at the time missed that point. It's why some VT fans don't want WVU.
