News item: Navy has agreed to join the Big East Conference for football starting in 2015 after getting assurances that it can continue it's traditional non-conference rivalries with Army, Air Force and Notre Dame.

Schmuck's take: Not sure the program had much choice considering the dramatic changes that are taking place in the landscape of college football, but it¿s hard to imagine the Mids running up a big string of bowl appearances with almost no non-conference scheduling flexibility. Bonus take: Unless, of course, they're willing to ease the academic requirements to help recruiting, which seems unlikely.
