He's on outside the lines right now: very upset.

"We have no one in charge" "It's all about football, and money, and greed" "Loyalty is gone"

Tranghese is blatantly crapping all over the ACC. Guy is right, college sports has run amuck.

This guy sounds a hell of a lot more competent than Marianatto. He's a basketball guy, but he knows what's going on and knows the landscape.

Speaking of Tranghese, one has to assume that the current Big East Commissioner knew what was going on. If after all this, and he was involved the last time, he got blindsided yet again, I hope the members have cleaned out his desk and left his personal possessions on the front stoop of his Providence Office.

sounds like sour grapes, the big east sealed its own fate. i say that even as a fan of a team who could be affected negatively.

This outside the lines discussion is really interesting: you have the 3 ESPN writers most pissed about this realignment, going against Jamie Dixon trying to spin Pitt's move and some CBS media exec who claims all the moves are somehow NOT about television

Tranghese and both Francesa talking about feeling badly for Boeheim, and Calhoun, and Dixon, who would much rather have the status quo kept together and don't want to coach in the ACC (per these guys).

Katz blaming the Big East's problems on the bball/non-bball split and the difference of interests. I think that's the common sense view, and why it needs to be split now

Anyway to catch a repeat of outside the lines. Don't see any on the channel line up. Missed it because it says NASCAR on right now.

How is it the BE fault? I fully understand how this whole house of cards falls. But, barring that split ... there is nothing that the conference could have done. The Bottom Line, at this point, is that the Profiteering (using the Herbst phrase) and Consolitation/Exclusion kills the "best interest of the sport". That is why you can absolutely say that John Swofford is no sportsman. He is a business shark ... and far better than ours. But, frankly, our Presidents & Commish had no really solid hand to play.

Potentially this is a merger of Big East Football and the ACC as they stood in 2003. UConn replaced the deficient Temple in 2004 and WVU goes to the SEC.

If this happened in 2003 it would be a Win/Win. Ahhh...the drama....

What would you like Dixon to do? He could trash the whole thing and live in a messy house? He has to spin it and bite his tongue. No one with any sense, except maybe Boeheim, will trash the situation. Notice that Calhoun hasn't....

Oh I'm not blaming him, it was just a great juxtaposition of Dixon up there smiling and excited and the 3 espn anchors looking pissed and talking about greed and the destruction of college sports as we know it

Texas happened. It's the difference of interests and trying to keep everyone happy in both cases. They went on to suggest that this could be the problem with the super conferences, just more teams to try to manage.

I did not see either interview, but it is a bit hypocritical for the EsPN anchors to be angry when the company they work for has their fingerprints all over this.
