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 Tulsa Shock  have signed former Oklahoma Sooners star Courtney Paris.

Bad luck has seemed to follow Paris in her quest for a pro career.

Paris was the No. 7 overall pick of Sacramento in 2009 but the team folded at the end of the season. The 6-foot-4 daughter of former NFL player, Bubba Paris, was selected in the dispersal draft by Chicago but did not earn a roster spot. In 2011, she signed with the Los Angeles Sparks and was waived three months later. She landed with Atlanta in June 2011 and was waived a few weeks ago.

INDIANA AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Hoosiers led by offensive-minded Kevin Wilson

Kevin Wilson is the new head coach at Indiana.

His name probably sounds familiar because he was the long-time offensive coordinator at Oklahoma.

From 2002-2010, Wilson served as offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator for the Sooners. He also coach the fullbacks and tight ends. Under his guidance, Oklahoma played in seven Big 12 Title games in his nine years, going 6-1. His offensive machines were vital to accumulating an overall record of 99-24 (.805) during his time in Norman, Oklahoma, including seven 10-win seasons.

One of the most prolific and innovative offensive minds in college football, Wilson was named Indiana University’s 28th head football coach on December 7, 2010.

Wilson has also coached at North Carolina, Winston Salem State, North Carolina A & T, Foard High School in North Carolina, Miami of Ohio and Northwestern.

The Big East Conference is moving quickly to recover from the defections of long-time members Syracuse and Pittsburgh to the ACC and prospective 2012 member Texas Christian University to the Big 12.

The conference is planning to invite Boise State, Air Force and Navy as football-only members, and Central Florida as an all-sports member.

The conference also pushed its exit fee from $5 million to $10 million.

Big 12 university presidents, chancellors and provosts have agreed to equally share the wealth from the conference’s most lucrative television deals if the membership agree to lock in those top-tier TV rights into the league for at least six years.

Interim commissioner Chuck Neinas hopes that this proposal will keep the conference together and help persuade Missouri from following Texas A&M to the SEC.

Each school must approve the granting of TV rights.

The Big 12 also plans to expand the conference whether Missouri stays or goes.
