    The Big East makeover or what is left over.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/big-east-break-picks-speed-002156641--ncaaf.html

    The breakup of the Big East's football and basketball schools appears to be on the fast track. The major college football members will meet in Atlanta on Friday to discuss the departure of the seven basketball schools that are planning to leave the conference and create a new league.

    According to media reports Thursday, the basketball schools plan to have their new conference up and running for the 2013-14 school year and will pay the football schools to keep the Big East name and play its conference tournament at Madison Square Garden in New York. Big East Commissioner Mike Aresco told the AP in a phone interview no deal has been completed between the two groups but ''some of this stuff is clearly coming down to the wire.

    Big East football is in the midst of a major makeover, with 2013 scheduled to be another season with lame duck members. Next year, Big East football will have holdovers Connecticut, Cincinnati, South Florida, Temple, Rutgers and Louisville, along with newcomers Central Florida, Memphis, Houston and SMU.

     

    In 2014, Louisville and Rutgers are likely on the way out - the Cardinals to the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Scarlet Knights to the Big Ten - and Tulane and East Carolina will join. Navy is schedule to join the Big East for football in 2015, and the conference is looking to add another member - Tulsa is the front-runner - to get to an even 12.

    The network last week matched an offer made by NBC for the TV rights to the conference. The deal will be for seven years and pay the league about $130 million, though that figure would come down if the seven Catholic schools are not in the league next season.

    It had been presumed that the seven basketball schools would stay in the current Big East for another year, because time is getting tight to start a new conference. But with a TV deal reportedly waiting for them, it seems they're ready to ramp up the process.

    The seven basketball schools reportedly have an offer from Fox to broadcast its games that could earn the schools about $3 million per year, depending on how many more members they bring on. Butler, Xavier and Creighton are being talked about as potential targets."

     

    Can't wait for Louisville and Notre Dame to come aboard. Too bad the Irish are too chicken to come into Hockey East. The new makeover is some powerhouse football conference, I used to love the old Southwestern Conference with SMU and Houston.

    Nice cut and paste Doggy bones.

    Now try to post something original in your own words. We can all read the Sports wires. More than likely at BHCC they taught you to use the work of others that's why your the cut and cover guy on the blogs.

    Must love the way BC appearance in the ACC has gone thus far? I will give you a little cut and paste on ACC Baseball and guess what the Buffoons are nowhere to be found .

    Yet another program that never was any good and stinks out the ACC. Enjoy the reading Doggy Bones .. come up with something original next time in your limited discussions!

    BC Buffoons nowhere to be found!

     

    Florida State’s Marcus Davis and Maryland’s Charlie White have been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Co-Players of the Week, while NC State’s Carlos Rodon earned ACC Pitcher of the Week honors.

    Davis continued his torrid start to the 2013 campaign as the Seminole outfielder/designated hitter led Florida State to a perfect 4-0 week including a three-game series sweep of USF. The Cincinnati, Ohio, junior hit .615 (8-for-13) on the week, as five of his eight hits went for extra bases with three home runs and two doubles. He drove in at least one run, scored at least one run and picked up at least one hit in all four games. The junior college transfer was a triple shy of hitting for the cycle in game one against USF as he went single, solo home run, walk, double and single. At one point during the week, Davis reached base safely in eight consecutive at-bats.

    White served as the Terrapins’ catalyst in their four-game series sweep of Oakland, stealing 10 bases in 10 attempts while going 10-of-15 at the plate (.667), drawing five walks and scoring six runs. Three of White’s 10 hits went for extra bases, and he drove in five runs. The sophomore center fielder from Naperville, Ill,, stole four bases in game 1 of the series, the most stolen bases in a single game for a Terrapin since 1998 (Larry Long vs. Howard). -White’s effort helped the Terps swipe a school-record 11 bases in game one and register 26 stolen bases in the four-game series.

    Rodon worked seven near-perfect innings as he combined with freshman reliever Karl Keglovits to throw the Wolfpack’s first no-hitter since 2005. Rodon struck out a career-high 14 batters in a 5-0 win over La Salle while walking just one over the first seven innings — fanning the last six batters he faced. Keglovits pitched a perfect eighth and ninth in his first collegiate appearance to nail down the no-hitter. Since giving up a fourth-inning home run to Appalachian State's Preston Troutman on Feb. 15, Rodon has faced 31 batters without allowing a hit, striking out 16. The All-Ameircan from Holly Springs, N.C., retired 28 of the 31 men he faced in that span, walking two. The other reached on an error.

    Davis, White and Rodon were all named National Players of the Year.

    Coach K drops the F Bomb at Virginia how compelling. Such a stand-up guy and leader that we all can emulate? Perhaps Wonder boy should have somere fire in his gut, which he has none, to produce a winner.

     

    On Coach K ...K's sense of entitlement (that which pervades the Duke program and it's fans) is infamous. If you have spent 30 seconds watching a Duke basketball game, you know that K's infamous F-bomb outbursts would make a sailor wince and would earn technicals by any other coach in the country. Add to that the belittling and berating of the reporters who dare question him and not drop to their knees and bow in his presence and you get a complete picture of why K is K. Even this article, which portends to by critical of his behavior at the presser, still has the typical knob-slobbing that the press must do elsewise incur the wrath of K. K not happy with you, you get ignored. You get ignored, you can't report. You can't report, you stop getting the Duke assignments and you are covering high school fencing. Ergo, purse the lips, take the beating and move on.

    Very sad. Very sad indeed

    Re: The Big East makeover or what is left over.

    Notre Dame's athletic department sits in a more challenging position Friday than it did Thursday. As athletic director Jack Swarbrick sees it, things probably will not be getting easier any time soon.

    As the Big East's departing Catholic schools begin to break off with the intent of starting their own league next season, the Fighting Irish are left wondering which conference their non-football sports will be playing in this fall.

    Very interesting shake up in the Catholic 7, if Notre Dame would opt for 2014. Retaining the Big East name is a plus, and it puts a strain in the ACC next year, as Georgetown and ND are the two programs that deserve respect. Noted the ACC draws in Syracuse, and Pittsburg, however, PITT has slumped over the years and is a tad above BC which is a zero in Basketball elite with a Coach stinking up  ACC credibility in the Raycom tv ratings.

    Would recommend to the ACC  letting BC go by way of the CATHOLIC 7, and opt for a more viable program. Catholic Northeast Boston YWCA basketball does not belong on Tobacco Road, or the ACC.
