The Big East's demise Lose Miami, likely more The new mid-major?
At least a mid-major in football, if the plans go through. There's a July 1st deadline at which the exit fee for the Big Easters goes up from $1 million to $2 million, so this is going to go down this week, or week-from-tomorrow at the worst, if it's going to go down at all. The ACC is pondering plan 10 (Miami), plan 13 (Miami, BC, VT and Syracuse) and plan 12 (plan 13 less either BC or 'cuse). I think that they'll settle on plan twelve, leaving out BC, but the Homeboy Shopping Network is running a Max Mo' Money special on plan 13. The ten-team plan doesn't give them the conference title game, while 13 becomes an ugly number to schedule. I'm thinking 12, for one less trip to the Northeast will make it easier for Duke and NC to swallow. However, no one ever went broke overestimating the greed of college presidents.
