    Smart. And now I can still watch the Gayhawks with disdain as they play Georgetown every year. GO HOYAS!

    Not widows, orphans. Oliver Swift...may I have some more please! Personally I will miss the bball part of this. Any chance schools could divorce their football brethren and align basketball? Probably not but bball is the real loser in all of this.

    You can't blame them for trying. But it's doomed to failure. Why would UConn and Rutgers commit to a new league with new withdrawal penalties when the existing BigEast penalties are so low and an ACC bid for them is presumably forthcoming?

    If the BigEast and Little10 remnants did combine (aka the LittleEast), the biggest beneficiaries are Pitt/Syracuse and presumably UConn/Rutgers. The new LittleEast would need to start conference play in 2012 in order to accommodate the Little10 refugees. That would mean releasing Pitt/Syracuse from their need to stay for 27 months after tendering withdrawal papers.
