Big East Realignment: UConn, WVU, Rutgers Remain Noncommittal About Future

Big East Conference commissioner John Marinatto came away from Tuesday's nights meeting between the conference football schools with the impression everyone was committed to the future of the conference.

According to UConn, West Virginia and Rutgers...not so much.

UConn President Susan Herbst released a statement today in regards to the school and it's future and at no point does she even mention the Big East:

"Please know that we will always do what is in the best interests for the University of Connecticut."

Meanwhile, West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck's statement does actually mention the words "Big" and "East," but seems as noncommittal to the conference as UConn's.

"As I stated before, WVU is an excellent flagship, land-grant University, with national-caliber athletic and academic programs. We are, and will remain, a national player in college athletics."

Another source told the AP that Rutgers never actually committed itself to the Big East either.

Someone should probably double-check with John Marinatto that he was in the same meeting all of these schools were in.
