The danger in talking about conference realignment in college sports and making projections about what the future holds is that the future you’re projecting is constantly in danger of being upended by yet another move. So it is that the updated future Big East football map our own Dylan Murphy fashioned yesterday, upon hearing the news that Tulane and East Carolina would join the conference, is already out of date.
The Big East is a giant shitshow, mostly because schools with high quality athletic departments are bolting for greener pastures, leaving the conference with the scraps of Division I. Earlier today, it was announced that Tulane and ECU will be joining the Big East, with Tulane a full member and ECU in football only.
Thought colleges had finished frantically switching conferences and everyone was finally content where they were, confident that when the BCS shot its grand money cannon in their general direction, they’d scoop up their share of the scattered proceeds, rather than be killed instantly by the blow? Nonsense! The latest dominoes to fall: Maryland and Rutgers are heading to the Big Ten. What should you know about it? We break the big move down, after the jump.
As we close in on the announcement of the bracket here on Selection Sunday, March Madness is already in full swing. From expected number one seeds going down to perennial powers battling for conference supremacy, it’s already been a crazy, emotional weekend in the world of college basketball. A round-up of the power conference winners, and what to expect come 6 p.m. ET, after the jump.
In a game where UConn came crawling back from an 18-point deficit to force overtime, Villanova saw what initially seemed like a an easy victory turn into a heartbreaking overtime loss.
Remember when West Virginia was going to the Big 12? Well, earlier today, word got out that West Virginia wasn’t going to the Big 12 just yet. And the reason why is: U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell?
When Syracuse and Pittsburgh announced they were leaving the Big East for the ACC last month, it marked the biggest conference-shifting news since Nebraska bolted for the Big 10 last year, and the end of the Big East football conference as we know it. It also got some people thinking: did ESPN play a role in the move? A couple days ago, one ACC athletic director sent those thoughts into overdrive. And today, he tried to take it all back.
