Nova should go Big East in football, Holtz says

Lou Holtz on Villanova possibly joining the Big East for football: “Go ahead and make the jump. It’s a good school, you won a national championship in I-AA and you can recruit. If you win in one sport, you can win in another. One helps support the other. When I was at Arkansas, we had great basketball. When I was at N.C. State, we had David Thompson and Monte Towe. When I was at South Carolina, we Ray Tanner win a baseball championship.”
