UConn President Susan Herbst told the AP that the presidents from every Big East school will be gathering this weekend to discuss the future of the conference.
"We have to talk about the future and how to go forward as a strong Big East," she wrote.
Last week, Big East commissioner John Marinatto emerged from a meeting with the Big East football schools claiming unity. He then watched as almost every one of them spent the next couple days publicly announcing that they are keeping their options open, some even openly courting other conferences.
Throw in the fact that the conference needs to figure out whether or not to expand and what to do with Syracuse and Pitt, both of whom are currently obligated to spend the next 27 months in purgatory, and there is a lot to talk about.
