Two Little Debbies and a cup of coffee
Big East basketball will be fine. They can not only exist, but still be very powerful being made up only of mostly their original members(most of which being the catholic schools Nova, ND, Georgetown etc etc etc..) Football is obviously finished, hell it already has been for years. Big East football is a joke.
WVU better find its way into the ACC, SEC, or Big 10 real soon. SEC would obviously be the best, but they need to find a way to schedule Pitt every year if they dont get into the ACC. We have already lost rivalries with Va Tech and Penn St when those teams went into their conferences years back. The ACC would keep the back yard brawl alive, as well as renew the rivalry with VA Tech.
Ive heard that WVU turned the ACC down because they are supposed to be the other team with Texas A&M to join the SEC. I hope this is true, otherwise we may not find a chair when the music stops as MikeO said.
