John E. Hoover, a sports columnist at the Tulsa World, believes moving to the Big East is the logical choice for Tulsa.

He points out that the Golden Hurricane doesn't want to remain in Conference USA. And since the Mountain West isn't interested in adding Tulsa, the university needs to join the Big East.

The move would allow the Golden Hurricane to reunite with former C-USA regional rivals Memphis, SMU, Houston and Tulane, who are headed to the Big East.
