Re: College Football Realignment
One thing lost in all of this is the inevitable split between the football Big East programs from the non-football, Catholic Big East programs. This is finally the chance for the Big East to become a truly Catholic basketball conference.
Notre Dame (although their future in the Big East is in doubt)
I'd think they'd look to grab a few teams from the A-10 that fit their mold. Xavier and Dayton are the class of that conference and would likely be the first two. Then you have some combination of: St. Joe's (if Villanova allows for it), Fordham, SLU, La Salle, Duquesne and St. Bonny. That's a darn good basketball conference.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
