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 Pittsburgh recently hired Wisconsin offensive coordinator Paul Chryst as its new head coach and they hope he sticks around for a long time.

The 46-year-old Chryst will be the Panthers fourth head coach in the last 13 months with Dave Wannstedt, Mike Haywood and Todd Graham before him.

He replaces the most-recent coach in Graham who left to take the Arizona State job.

Chryst made the Wisconsin Badgers into an offensive powerhouse since joining the program in 2005. This season, the Badgers ranked fourth in scoring with 44.6 points per game and winning the Big Ten title and a Rose Bowl spot.

Pitt will be playing in the BBVA Compass Bowl against SMU on January 7 with Keith Peterson serving as the interim coach.

We say goodbye to fun-loving ‘Dandy Don’ Meredith

Don Meredith, one of the most fun-loving athletes of all time as the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys and in the broadcast booth for Monday Night football with Frank Gifford and Howard Cosell, died earlier in the week at age 72 after suffering a brain hemorrhage and lapsing into a coma in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Joseph Don Meredith born April 10, 1938 in Mount Vernon, Texas,  loved country music and was a pal of singer and fellow Texan, Willie Nelson, used words from Willie’s songs such as “Turn out the lights, the party’s over.”

In 1960, they were 0-11-1 to a championship caliber team which lost twice to the Green Bay Packers twice for the Super Bowl berth. Don was just 31 years old when he retired before training camp in 1969. A year later, he wound up in the broadcast booth for Monday Night football.
