^^ very true. I like what he said about the acc being pissed off that the big east is now the best conference and how bc hasn't won anything since joining. Think about it cuse and Pitt football will be down there with va dook and bc
RP, GA and JC may have more influence on this process than we do, but not a lot more. The presidents and trustees of the universities are the shakers and movers, and some universities have little control of this movement, including UConn.
You have to wonder what WV thinks of Louisville right now.
Memphis and Temple are great additions to the bb prowess of the present BE, but man o man do they detract from the academic impression which would be portrayed by the Big East. Neither are recognized as citadels of learning in my opinion.
Of course he is acting out of self interest. Everyone is trying to get the best deal available but one of his lines of attack is propping up a BE that both he and Calhoun might just belong to. In his heart I believe he really wants to stay in the BE, as does Calhoun who has lately been silent.
I don't think that Pitino really wants to be in the BE. I think Pitino just wants to be in a good basketball conference. Louisville is now lobbying hard to go to the Big 12 which is apparently one of the reasons for the hold up with WVU's move (along with the Mizzou situation).
Might as well be screaming into the wind. I think all if not most of the basketball coaches have essentially said it's completely out of their control. His lobbying isn't really going to accomplish anything. Just venting?
