Why? We have a bball team ranked #11 nationally, a football team that's showed no signs of slowing down, and we're about to announce a massive renovation plan for Nippert. Why does everyone assume that the Big East is giving UC anything worthwhile as it stands today? By contrast, I'd argue that we're the most attractive all around property the Big East has left. I think we'll manage to survive.
