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.

When University of Cincinnati QB Zach Collaros fractured his ankle in the November 12 loss to West Virginia at Paul Brown Stadium, it looked he was finished for the year.

But during his rehab since that date, Collaros has been ahead of schedule by two weeks according to doctors.

There is a chance that Collaros could play in today’s (December 31) game in the Liberty Bowl against Vanderbilt.

Collaros passed for 1,860 yards and 14 touchdowns. While he was absent for three games, head coach Butch Jones used the two-QB system of Munchie Legaux and Jordan Luallen that was good enough to win a piece of the Big East championship.

The Bearcats (9-3, 5-2 Big East) are returning to the postseason after last year’s diasppointing 4-8 record.

Their opponent, the Vanderbilt Commodores finished at 6-6 overall, 2-6 in the SEC. They’re making just its fifth bowl game ever and have a 2-1-1 record in the postseason. This will be their first-ever appearance in the Liberty Bowl, which is located in Memphis, four hours from the school’s home in Nashville.

UC and Vandy have two common opponents in Connecticut and Tennessee. The Commodores beat UConn 24-21 and lost to the Volunteers in overtime, 27-21. The Bearcats beat UConn 35-27 and lost to the Vols 45-23.

Tonight’s (Dec. 27) game at the Belk Bowl in Charlotte will have two 7-5 teams going up against each other, Louisville and North Carolina State.

Both teams started slow and a bowl game did figure in their plans early in the season.

But both teams rebounded to pull off upsets and received the bowl bid.

Head coach Charlie Strong got his Cardinals team together after a 2-4 start and led them to a share of the Big East title with Cincinnati and West Virginia.

The Wolfpack of North Carolina State were 2-3 after five games and rebounded with five wins in its last seven games.

Their will be two quarterbacks facing each other in their first year as starters. Freshman Teddy Bridgewater of Louisville and redshirt junior Mike Glennon for N.C. State.

Rich Rodriguez hired by Arizona to resurrect football program

Rich Rodriguez, who put West Virginia back on the national spotlight in football, took a big dive at Michigan, is back as a college football coach.

The University of Arizona Wildcats have hired the 48-year-old to bring back a once-proud program from the doldrums for almost 10 years.

Arizona is 3-8 this season.

The Wildcats fired head coach Mike Stoops in October after he went 41-50 in seven-plus seasons.

Arizona has not won more than eight games in a season since 1998 under Dick Tomey.

Rodriguez is known for high-scoring offenses and suspect defenses. He will bring his spread offense which will be fast-paced to wear out defenses.

This football season, Rodriguez has been working as an analyst for CBS Sports Network, but has said all along that he was interested in getting back into the coaching ring.
