    Speaking of which...the talk of Georgetown to the ACC in all sports except football doesn't really lend much strength to the argument that the conference is stable.

    Could the travishamockery that is the Big East be spiraling to its fiery crash?

    Aside from the main goal of destroying those who would deem it in their interest to bend over and let ND no-lube them, some of the collateral damage is fucking beautiful. So, so many sweet, sweet tears to enjoy.

    • Duke and Coach Krezoowski finding out where they really stand in the natural order of things.
    • The potatards having to go groveling back--Peterbilt hat in hand--to the MWC
    • And, will we ever see the likes of this [Mark May] again?

    Vegas is preschool [Mark May] compared to Nola.
    they couldn't even handle an NBA all star game when given the chance.

    1) they never should have left
    2) Utah shouldn't have left either, but who can blame them
    3) with those two schools, the MWC is a BCS conference.
    4) the MWC might STILL be a BCS conference when the dust settles.
    5) :lol:

    How about the Ebony and Ivory League? - the ivory standing for the students.

    Hard to believe that the BB schools would walk away from the tournament credits that they would lose.

    I don't see Xavier, Georgetown or Marquette suffering for lack of a football program.
  12. Are the B ball schools entitled to a share of the exit fees? If so, I doubt they would vote to disband before the fees were collected.

    Eventually, the Catholic schools from the Big East will hook up with the A10 to form a basketball league. This wil give ND somewhere to park their non-football sports once everyone else wises up to what a lousy conference member they make.

    Yeah I wasnt serious....it would make no sense but.....if the SEC joined with the B1G and called themselves the BEC then divided the divisions into the Union and Confederacy you would have somthing

    What does that have to do with NCAA BB tournament credits?

    Edit: OK it looks like if they dissolve the league each team gets to keep their credits. So that would be far more attractive than the BB splitting off (where the credits would remain with the league).
