VCU is in Richmond, VA. Washington, D.C. where Georgetown is touches Virginia. Also, VCU is a large public institution with 31,752 students. The largest school by student enrollment in the Big East is DePaul, which has 23,799 students. That makes VCU 7,953 students larger than any Big East school. I'm sure this would be taken into consideration if the Big East ever expands to 12. Richmond, also in VCU's same city has 4,180 students which is smaller than the smallest Big East school, Providence College with 4,585 students.
