SNE Sports Saturday -URI advances - NCAA conference realignment 3-18-17
Scott Cordischi continues the conversation, taking your calls, texts and tweets on URI's tourney win. He also cites "Basketball in the Big East Conference" by Kevin McNamara (ProJo) with Dave Gavitt's prediction on the conference realignment and expansion.
heaven MacNamara detailed and in his book that he wrote about the big east . Did gather god rest his soul. He saw this all coming down the pike. And he tried to get out in front of the what he failed. Because the basketball only schools in the big east like Providence like Seton Hall like saint John's. Like Villanova. Like Georgetown. They shot it down. What do I mean by that. Back in the oh I think it was late eighties early ninety's whenever it was in the early date days of the Big East Conference. Gave gab that went to the big east . Athletic directors. And he said listen. We need to take Penn State in. And they all looked at him like he had three heads and said what are you talking about eight Penn State basketball. Sticks. Out will hurt our conference. Any city don't understand. This is about football. And they all looked at him as it were we'd meet and hang out of the big east a conference because all the teams at the time where independents they were eastern independent Syracuse. Was you know Pittsburgh was they were all independents. And rockers West Virginia naymick payroll is independent football schools. And he said listen. I see where this is headed. And we need to bring in Penn State for football reasons into the Big East Conference. So he put it to a vote. And the basketball only schools. Shouted down. Syracuse voted yes Pittsburg voted yes. All the football playing schools wanted Penn State because they understood what Dave gavel was talking about. The basketball schools said how does that help us. So they shot it down what happened about a year later after Dave Gabbert suggested the big east taken Penn State. The Big Ten came knocking on Penn State store in happy valley and said on which like come join us. And they quickly answered yes we wouldn't. And that was the first major domino to fall in conference realignment. And if you could turn back the clocks. In the big east had welcomed the Penn State in with open arms as Dave gap it. The brilliant leader in the cold the founder of the Big East Conference suggested they should. You would still have. The old Big East Conference and you would have I think a terrific. Northeastern football conference you'd at Penn State you'd have Pittsburg you would have Syracuse rockers Pittsburgh West Virginia West Virginia . I UConn. You know I think it would have been able to hold that together. And that would've been great. And so that's why we are where we are today. Unfortunately. And as a Syracuse alumnus I hate the fact that my schools in the ACC he'd. Do I get charged up when they played duke and Carolina sure I do. But it's not the same. I would much rather than being the big east having wars with Georgetown. You know I just I would. It's just an it conference realignment it stinks it makes no sense geographically. That the Syracuse field hockey team master. Fly down to the Georgia Tech. You know it just doesn't make sense. 4017371287. You know from the for a one is the big east tournament going to lose luster and attendance at Madison Square Garden without Syracuse and UConn fan base this crane and Butler fan base traveled to New York City like. Those former big east giants. What to answer question no not in and as great in numbers as Syracuse fans and UConn fans did. But I gotta tell except in the atmosphere still pretty damn good for the big east tournament at the garden. It's still might be better than any other post season conference tournament in and that's a lot to do with the Madison Square Garden quite frankly the world's most famous arena as they like to call themselves. Now I I don't think the atmosphere at the big east tournament is quite the same when you don't have the Syracuse and UConn fan base is no question about it. But it's
