Mack Rhoades

Nov. 20, 2012

HOUSTON - The University of Houston Athletics Department released the following statement on Tuesday regarding Rutgers' announcement of its plans to leave the Big East.

"Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Mack Rhoades and the administration at the University of Houston have been in close discussion with the Big East Conference regarding recent conference realignment. Commissioner Mike Aresco has been proactive in his dealings and has prepared the Big East and its member institutions for recent changes. We have the utmost faith Commissioner Aresco and his staff will provide the best long-term future for member institutions. We wish Rutgers the best as we focus our attention on the positive future of the Big East Conference."

Big East Commissioner Mike Aresco released the following statement: 

"Although we are disappointed that Rutgers has decided to leave the Big East Conference, we wish them well. They have been a valued member of the Conference for many years.

"We realize that conference realignment is currently a fact of life in college sports. In the context of this realignment, changes in our membership have been taking place, including important additions. In fact, the Big East has expanded its scope with new members in California, Texas, Florida, Idaho, Tennessee and Pennsylvania. As a result, the Big East has created a unique national football conference that is a factor in the BCS Championship, remains the nation's strongest basketball conference top to bottom, and is a major force across the full spectrum of men's and women's college sports. We remain committed to, and confident in, the continued growth and vitality of the Big East Conference."
