Kinda difficult to get excited over heading to the Shoe to see Tulane, Houston, UCF etc. on the schedule when you've spent the last 7 seasons playing the Novas, Georgetowns, Syracuses, etc. of the world.
I don't know how attractive UC is, but they're moving in the right direction internally. My point was more that the BE schedule wasn't all that great even with the C7 there. Syracuse, Pitt, ND, UL, and WVU are bigger losses than Georgetown, 'Nova, SJU, etc... The Big East stunk whether the C7 left or not. UC was the best all around product theyhad left, and that ain't a ton to hang your at on.
