    Rick Patino is politicking hard for Iona to join the A10. I know it would never happen but I wish he would request to come to the Big East. Another big name coach and program that wouldn’t be a huge threat.

    IU guys used to do drugs in the 80's. Now it sounds like they do it at any temperature.

    Didn't see this coming.

    This ought to shake up the MAC.

    Ask how the Patrick Baldwin case study went? For one thing though, he will be the man there and can jack up 30+ shots a game now

    This will be interesting. Likely considered a complete failure if they don’t make the tournament.

    Imagine how much baggage a player must bring to be a top 10 recruit and, a year later, have "not a lot of interest from any high-major programs."

    Assuming he’s still academically eligible 2nd semester.

    Torvik's pre-season rankings have Eastern Michigan at No. 263, and 8th of 12 in the MAC.

    These numbers should of course rise with Bates, but it's going to be a long journey to the NCAA Tournament from there.

    Yeah, the Big East needs to go get Gonzaga now. Like yesterday. Add St. Mary's too if you really need a travel partner.

    Time for the Big East to be bold and wrap up the college basketball centric conference once and for all. Grab Gonzaga and Dayton.

    West Division: Gonzaga, Creighton, Marquette, DePaul, Butler, X and Dayton. In the East....UCONN, SJU, Villanova, Providence, Seton Hall and Georgetown. Uneven....but make it work. Crossover games with home and home in division....and alternate years of one each with the other members. Others to consider would be St Louis, Wichita State, ?

    Selfishly as a fan not big on expansion because love round robin schedule but if are going to expand would be stupid to add A10 schools or Wicheta at this point cause they are not bringing any additional money in. The play for Big East should be to wait for additional P5 realignment and see if Big 10/SEC keep poaching P5 schools to form two super leagues. If they do in this likely scenario you might have a chance at convincing leftover P5 schools from Big 12/ACC like a Syracuse or Kansas to pull a UConn and go independent in football and join conference in all other sports.

    If you guys want the Big East to go Bold, then go Bold, see if Kansas really cares about football.

    I feel like we're going to eventually end up with football superconferences which, TBH, is fine by me for that sport, but it's going to ruin all the other sports on the road to get there.
