The Big East is a conference that does not receive a lot of positive attention. The past few seasons are seasons that, at times, the league would rather forget.
Every other BCS conference and most of the nation, with exception of maybe the MAC and Sun-Belt Conferences, will constantly remind the Big East, every team in it, and their fans just how horrible they are.
I for one believe that the league and most of the schools in the Big East have acknowledged in some way that the conference is not performing in a capacity that it would like to be, and should be, since it is an automatic qualifying conference.
Not only has the Big East acknowledged its sub-par play but, there has been action taken to improve Big East football. Only time will tell how these changes will improve the Big East's image and performance, but I believe that most of the changes are going to make the conference better.
Before we go into what the conference is doing to make itself better lets discuss just how bad it is.
