That is not a conference I would have any interest in, but for the other teams it might at least be a stop gap.
I wonder what effect a merger like this or other major team movement in or out of the Big East will have on the 27 month notice requirement. Enforcing it might create more problems scheduling etc. The B12 teams wouldn't want to to wait 27 months, they will need to move the coming season. Any TV deal, which I have heard that the BE was still working on could also be delayed by not knowing who was in the league. It probably would be in the BE best interest to just wave the notice requirements. They point of notice is generally to allow time to get a replacement. It's like an apartment rental, if you have someone waiting to move in than than the notice is irrellevant. In this case there seem to be more wanting to move in than are actually leaving.
Perhaps the answer is the leaving schools could sublet their spots to the incoming schools until the contract actually expires. LOL
this is why our economy is the s....GREED and the stupidity of the little train that couldn't---always thinking "if I do what they do, I'll be rich too"
have this baboons even thought about the travel expenses for competition, let alone recruiting?
on second thought, maybe having geographically "divided" conference such as this would be beneficial to recruiting for all members of each conference. You will have fewer fish in a much bigger pond if you just made all the conferences go to this setup! then you'd just recruit against other conference teams more so than your own
I wonder what the new conference encorporating the remnants of the other two conferences would be called. The Big Blob?
Now Bear, that's just plain mean How about the Big East/Midwest? Almost could be the Big Transcontinental, but not quite. Hey! By the time it all shakes out they could be the BIG 12!!!
I think this would be a great thread for jdub to start
Ok, tigger I will. Thanks.
The CBC....Catholic Basketball Conference....St Johns, Georgetown, Providence, Seton Hall, Marquette, DePaul, and Notre Dame
OK it needs to be more subtle. LAC. Leftover Athletic Conference. Given the Catholic school roots of the Big East and it being all about money maybe Little Sisters of the Poor Athletic Conference would work and the new broad geography, L(e)SPAC'd (Less Packed).
They should just stick with CYO-AC.
Surely BC would receive a message from God to bolt there from the ACC or face eternal damnation, huh ?
I never knew G'town was a Catholic school. Duh, I guess.
FWIW, the Big East remnants would be absorbed in the Big 12 to maintain the new conference's BCS status.
They are Jesuits
Aha! I forgot Harry's girls. There is the eighth team. Same number as when the Big East was founded.
Separate names with a comma.
