Notre Dame would be a perfect fit as they don't belong to a conference, however they continue to maintain that beloning to a conference would hurt there recruiting as they like to recruit all four corners of the states.
I wonder if we will ever get to a point where individual sports programs from schools will have different conference affiliation.
Yup, no chance it's Syracuse, the Big East is a cash cow when it comes to basketball.
People whine about Big East football, the reality is the conference exists for basketball. They make a fortune on that side of it. The problem is they have painted themselves into a corner. They can't add anymore teams to improve the football side of things because the basketball portion of the Big East is already too big.
They could start by booting out Notre Dame.
