    Figure they'll pay about what Syracuse and Pitt paid to get out (7.5 mil).

    The presidents of the Big East's seven Catholic, non-Football Bowl Subdivision schools are expected to decide on their future in the Big East in the coming days, and it "would be an upset" if they remained in the league, sources told ESPN.

    The end is nigh.

    If the seven schools decide to move to a new league they would keep their automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament according to NCAA rules, which state that, as long as they have been in the same league for five years, a group of seven universities would keep their bid after a move together

    I see it more as basketball schools taking the name with them and selecting specfic schools and "starting over".

    I agree Slyder. I think they'd add Xavier, Dayton, and either Creighton or Butler to get to 10 originally.

    I think St. Louis is another strong possibility.

    Word. The basketball schools are looking to part ways because the football additions are hurting their brand, the last thing they want to do is adopt the A-10 brand and include the likes of Duquesne, LaSalle, Fordham and Rhode Island. The far more likely scenario is that they're going to try to keep the Big East brand, the tournament in MSG and then cherry pick the best of the A10 to get to 10 or 12 teams.

    The days of being the premier college basketball conference are over but Georgetown, Villanova, Marquette and St. Johns with the likes of Xavier, UMass and Butler could still be a very respectable conference.

    I don't have time to pull quotes right now, but even in 2004-2005 after the BE expanded, folks were saying that he league was too big for its own good and that the bball-only schools would eventually break off. UC fans better have enjoyed this ride while it lasted.

    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.

    One thing I wonder if they would discuss is letting UC, UConn, USF stick around for all other sports while they find permanent homes. This is why I thought you might see someone try and get creative for a football only "best of" conference who that was the ONLY sport that league would sponsor.

    Assumption:
    Big 12 takes NC State/Clemson, Va Tech, FSU and Miami to get to 14.
    SEC takes UNC and Duke to get to 16.
    B1G takes Ga Tech and Virginia to get to 16.

    Would the remaints be able to cobble something together FOOTBALL ONLY to try and maximize what tv dollars they can get while all the other sports cut cost by staying more local based?

    The departure of the seven Catholic Big East basketball schools from the league appears to be inching toward inevitability.

    "I think it's certain the seven schools will leave, barring some substantial financial or legal impediment," a source with direct knowledge of the situation told SI.com.

    I don't disagree that UC is attractive, but the only opinion which matters is that of the other power conferences. So far they have not seen fit to extend UC an invite. What I was saying here is that it appears we have seen the last of the "premier" schedules for a while...especially on the bb side. 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.
