    Creighton to big east?

    According to espn they will join the catholic 7 in 2014. Anyone think McDermott will be able to handle a major conference this time?

    Maybe, only because the Big Least plays slow-*** basketball just like the MVC.

    Eh, the big east 'brand' was all in basketball, and these teams that are keeping the big east name are the basketball schools, so it makes sense to keep the name.

    But now we can't use the nickname "Big Least".

    Re: Creighton to big east?

    Catholic 7 will not be a major conference. On par with West Coast Conference. Niche conference with a couple of good teams but not much depth.

    Of course, this also describes the SEC and ACC this year.

    Edit: Was thinking of original Catholic 7 (Big East departures). Had not heard that Butler was joining, etc. With those being added, I would like to take this back.

    Idk I think it will be a good league. Butler and Xavier are also joining, two programs on the rise. SLU and Dayton are joining too.

    He's having his hands full with the MVC this year. Even with the excessive stat padding of his son.

    Georgetown, Villanova, Marquette, Xavier, Butler, Creighton, and St. Louis mostly besides Xavier and maybe Creighton are all going to the dance this year. That conference would arguably be better then the Big 12 more often then not.

    Georgetown, Marquette, Villanova, Butler, Creighton, St. John's, and Xavier > Gonzaga, St. Mary's, BYU, and a bunch of nobodies

    I'd imagine the new Big East would be maybe 4th or 5th best BB conference.

    The "new" Big East would have had 5 ranked teams this year. Maybe 6 (I think Villanova cracked the rankings in early January or so).
