Rest in Peace, Big (L)East.
You gave us nothing but basketball schools that ran EVERYTHING, kissed Providences butt and got NOTHING for football.
You didn't force ND to be a full member, you brought in two basketball schools (like DePaul--yet you complain about Tulane). You lost Miami, VTech, BC, Cuse, Pitt, WVU, and ND, and Louisville. Why?Because you focused 1000% on basketball. Heck, you let one of your football members go in 2004 because their attendance sucked--yet you did nothing to help.
In the end, you were a miserable piece of crap that NO ONE will miss unless they're from Providence.
May 2010- The date that Pitt, Cuse, WVU, LVille, etc told you to shape up in football or they'd ship out.
YOU decided to let them go. Now you've lost Rutgers to the same conference that let a pedophile enabler coach in it. That's how far you sunk. No one will miss you, in the end, no one will care. They've moved onto the ACC for caring.
And it's your fault.
