Become more Active and Transparent in Conference Realignment

      Villanova, PA

Belonging to an elite sports conference promotes the Villanova brand nationally. It provides opportunity for financial incentives such as more lucrative sponsorships and television contracts. This petition calls for the Villanova administration to pursue conference realignment options more actively and more transparently . Some of these options include, but are not limited to:
--Attempting to have Villanova join the Atlantic Coastal Conference for all sports or all sports minus football
--Instead of waiting for realignment, improve the football program's future options by trying to promote it to the D1 level through moving to the Sunbelt or MAC conference

Regardless, something needs to be done to preserve our prized athletic program, and the Nova Nation needs to be informed throughout the decision making process.

      A big part of our alma mater's future is to gain national exposure for everything it does, and we've been making great progress. Athletics visibility and better facilities will be a big part of this.

      Our school needs a conference that is far more accommodating than our current one.

      I can see the Villanova program becoming a farm system for the Eagles. D1 football is a must.

      Villanova's prestige as an institution is tied closely to our sports heritage. It is important to compete at the highest level, and best conference, in both football and basketball to maintain that prestige.

      The Big East just got a big hit to the back of the head. Nova needs to be smart.
