The Big East Rules

The Big East is the best basketball conference in the country; we all know that. But now we have another reason to celebrate this alliance of institutions of higher education. Miss America. Yes, this year's Miss America is a Big East student. So, she goes to Cincinnati and not to Georgetown. The Van Buren Boys are big enough to give accoldades where accoldades are deserved.

So, what if the University of Cincinnati has never had a Rhodes Scholar (at least not that I have been able to find)? Who cares if Georgetown has had 23 Rhodes Scholars (including one who went on to be Leader of the Free World)? I don't think a Hoya has ever reigned as Miss America.
Congratulations, Bearcats. Congratulations, indeed.

Must give credit where credit is due. While no G'town female to my knowledge has ever been crowned Miss America, my fellow VBB and I are certainly aware of one certain queen of late nigth who has gone onto Pigskin glory as a Redskins cheerleader.
