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 Cincinnati Bearcats, the number-1 scoring offense in the Big East, was shut down in Saturday’s 10-3 loss to Rutgers University before a crowd of 34,526 at Nippert Stadium which holds 35,097.

The Scarlet Knights now leads the all-time series 9-8-1 and have won the last two games including the 2011 contest at Piscataway, N.J., 20-3. The Bearcats lead the series in Cincinnati with a 6-2-1 record.

One of the bright spots in the game for UC was senior running back George Winn, who passed the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the season with 38 yards on 11 carries. He now has 1,018 yards in 2012.

The Bearcats were only able to muster 90 rushing yards compared to Rutgers’ 234.

 

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 Cincinnati men’s basketball team will play four Big East teams in a home-and-home basis during 2012-13, one more than in year’s past.

Those teams will be Connecticut, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and Rutgers.

The Bearcats will hit the road for games at 2012 national semifinalist Louisville, and defending regular-season league champion Syracuse.

UC will also travel to DePaul, Providence and Seton Hall.

What had been rumored for the past three months, came true on Wednesday.

Butler University of Indianapolis, the benchmark school of the Horizon League, will be leaving to go to the Atlantic 10 Conference beginning in the 2013-14 season.

The announcement was made by Butler president James Danko during a news conference.

The move will reunite Butler with Dayton and Xavier, who used to be members of the predecessor of the Horizon League, the Midwestern Collegiate Conference.

Butler replaces Temple in basketball. Temple will join the Big East in all sports other than football in 2013-14. Temple’s football team will begin competition in the Big East this fall.
