Comparing FCS Georgetown football to FBS West Virginia football is pretty funny though.

Speaking of funny, wouldn't it be hilarious if at the end of this season Buzz tries to get out of the Big 8/12 and interviews for a position with a BE team after trash talking the non FB conference in its infancy?

And from what I've read, they're definitely not happy about the prospects of UT and OU joining.  Although from a recruiting perspective, I could see it actually working out for Buzz - just adds more prestige to the league.

The Big East won’t be adding anyone from this reshuffle.  None of the pieces left standing will be very attractive or of any real value.  Kansas is not coming to the Big East.  They matchup academically with the Big 14 and the basketball is attractive enough for that league to overlook geography and bad football.  The Big XII will exist in some zombie shape but it’s over as a powerhouse

Seeing Kansas meeting with Big 10.

TCU, Texas Tech, and Baylor reaching out to Pac 12.

UCLA, USC, Oregon, Colorado talking to Big 10.

Rumors everywhere!

As others have said, being in the Big East sure is nice right now. 

The only school I could see leaving is UCONN (again), since they'll probably have some suitors as this all plays out.  But unless it's the Big 10 who comes knocking, I doubt that happens.

No, its really not.

Those schools may band together and there will be no more NCAA as it currently exists.  The Big East may get left holding their dicks.

Sure, when we win the I-AA NCAA Basketball national title. That's where this is headed.

Still have a winning record against the Mountaineers (7-4-2), which is the only Big 12 team they've played.

I think if the 4 super conferences break off,  the Big East will be invited along with whatever remains of the B12. I think they will want to keep at least a 32 team postseason tournament. March Madness sells

Yea I’m with ya. I can’t imagine there’s a scenario where the Big East doesn’t get taken along for the ride.

That’s nine national championships and a crap ton of Final 4s they’d be turning their back on.

Why would the 4 16 team super conferences not just have a tourney amongst themselves where everyone gets a bid, and keep a 64 team format?  The more parties you invite, the more ways you're splitting the check, and isn't money the driving force behind all this?

Assuming the break off organization doesn't just add teams up to 32 based on media markets.

Doubt they do that, that doesn't sell like the Cinderella story or home team story does to the casual fan.

Agreed. I think that would lose viewers since their schools/conferences wouldn’t be involved.

and that's why they won't be brought along. There's nothing the Power 5 hate more than seeing the little guys take their money and title.

Won't matter.  They're going to gate keep it with a new tourney and in three years no one will care about any other tournament.  People will complain for the first two years, but once the writing is on the wall that the old format won't return people will move on.

The Big East isn’t going to be left behind, folks.  If the NCAA ceases to exist, the Big East will be brought along with the Power 4 or 5 or whatever it is.

Could be. Personally I think that would hurt the overall product and eventually kill interest.

I'm not sure there's enough interest to sustain that. College basketball is just bad basketball compared to the NBA. The thing that drives interest is the connection to schools. Take that away and I think it becomes another g league.

I'm also not convinced the schools breakaway from the NCAA. They're getting everything they want and giving very little back. I think the model works very well for the P4

Let's say nova puts together another final four run or more, you don't think it'll be viewed as a bunch of people taking their ball and going home?

the Zags, Loyola, and Nova even Wichita st recently have put the bigger schools in that position if they did leave the public view would be them getting upset that they aren't as good as they think they should be.
