Big East Crumbling; Big Priest On Its Way?

The Register's Jim Fuller gives a good synopsis of what's going on with the Big East. As does Brett McMurphy, as always.

Sounds like UConn could be helped out by what could be a 27-month waiting period the seven Catholic teams apparently have to observe before leaving. By that time, UConn could very well be in the greener pastures of the ACC or Big Ten ... or at least know its heading that way.

Crazy times. Sad, too. The days of Patrick Ewing, Chris Mullin, Pearl Washington, Walter Berry, Rony Seikaly, Billy D., Ray Allen, Allen Iverson, Gerry McNamara, Kemba Walker, etc., etc., are all over. I guess as a lifelong native of the Northeast, I'll never quite "get" the whole college football thing. But I certainly "get" that the rest of the country's obsession with it, and the incredible amounts of money that football-related TV contracts, BCS bids, etc. bring in is essentially the reason that this great basketball conference is deteriorating before our very eyes.

And that's sad.
