if the big east stays together this a good time to make a bold statement to notre dame get all in or get out???nothing to loose at this point. i see them as holding back the league not adding to it. it is more now a statement of self respect. they want independence --give them the choice--they are not an asset in partiality and will continue to exploit as long as allowed to. let them exploit someone else. my guess is no one else will let them.
