I like the addition of Butler, Creighton, and Xavier. Should be a good basketball league to keep an eye on.
I think Georgetown, Marquette, Butler, and Xavier will be the best schools.
Butler, Creighton and Xavier are moving to the new Big East.
Might throw 'Nova into that mix as well--a very tough blow for the A-10...
This conference will be decent, nothing special, in basketball at this point. They really need St. John's to step up in some capacity. I really thought Lavin would do a better job recruiting. I know he has had some bad luck with guys, but there have to be 4-5 guys per year that he could lock down in NYC that could at least take them to the NCAA tournament.
What are you talking about? They will very likely be the best conference.
Don't kno if ur being serious but I don't think they will be better then the acc with cuse and Pitt or the big ten
I should change that "will" to "could". But yeah. Look at the top 25 right now. They have a lot of high power teams in the new Big East. The ACC will always have Duke and UNC. Syracuse is about the get the banhammer. The Big Ten is strong. In the New Big East you've got Georgetown and Marquette which are both quite strong. They won't have the historical power, but don't count them out.
funny how the 'mighty' and 'moral' ACC has 4 of the cheatingest programs that are currently or recently been under investigation. UNC, Miami, UConn, and now Cuse. Hey, UL may end up on that list with them too.
Alot of really solid programs in the new Big East.. Probably not quite as strong as before, but, lots of difference in a 10 team league vs a 16 team league.. Still, very competitive and a better than average chance they get 5 to 6 bids to the dance every year.. GTown, Marquette, Nova, Butler, Creighton, Xavier are all consistent regulars to the tournament. Don't see any reason, that doesn't continue..I was sort of surprised that St Joes didn't get offered a slot. They seem like a perfect fit..
Dayton may eventually end up with them, too.
