Louisville leaves Big East for the ACC; replaces Maryland

The Atlantic Coast Conference has raided the Big East again.

On Wednesday, the presidents and chancellors unanimously voted to add Louisville as a replacement for Maryland.

Maryland announced last week that it would be joining the Big Ten in 2014.

The ACC also considered two other Big East schools, Cincinnati and Connecticut.

 

Adding the Cardinals brings the ACC to 14 full members, with former Big East rivals Pittsburgh and Syracuse joining conference play in 2013.

Louisville will be the seventh Big East school to leave for the ACC in the last 10 years.

Obviously, by adding Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Louisville in the past 15 months has made the ACC even stronger in football and especially in basketball.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish has opted to end its football series with the Michigan Wolverines.

The last scheduled game between college football’s two winningest programs will take place in 2014.

Notre Dame recently made the decision to join the Atlantic Coast Conference in every sport except football and hockey. But the football team will play five games a year versus ACC opponents, which will start in 2015 and they had to drop some of their long-time rival games to free up the schedule.

Notre Dame leaving Big East for ACC; Football stays an Independent

To no one’s surprise, Notre Dame will be leaving the Big East Conference for the Atlantic Coast Conference in all sports but football. The ACC announced on Wednesday that the catholic university will play five football games every year against the league’s programs but will be a full member in all other sports.

The league also said that it is increasing its exit fees for the conference’s schools to three times the annual operating budget, which would be more than $50 million.

With this development, the Big East seems to be in trouble as far as a basketball conference goes.

They’ve lost Syracuse and Pittsburgh to the ACC, and West Virginia to the Big 12, now a national brand in Notre Dame and the retirement of Jim Calhoun at Connecticut, basketball seems to have taken a hit. Only Louisville, Cincinnati, Villanova and Georgetown are left.

But the Big East has added Memphis, Temple, SMU, Houston and Central Florida. Of that group, only Memphis and Temple have strong basketball programs.

The University of North Carolina announced recently that their basketball program will be losing three of its top players to the NBA.

Harrison Barnes, John Henson and Kendall Marshall will be entering the upcoming NBA draft.

This group has made a nice two-year run for the Tar Heels deep into the NCAA Tournament only to fall one game short of the Final Four each season.

It is not known if the players will hire agents or not.

Barnes, a 6’8 sophomore, led the team at 17.1 points a game.

Henson, a 6’11 junior, was a two-time Atlantic Coast Conference defensive player of the year.

Marshall is a 6’4 sophomore, who won the Cousy Award which is presented to the nation’s top college point guard and set the ACC’s season assist record.
