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.

 

 

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.
