This will have a lot of implication. We could now see ND back out of the ACC and join their catholic bretheren. This would eliminate any affiliation with a football conference and allow them to maintain independence without pressure.

This royally screws over ECU who was just invited to the league last week. Now they don't have a certain future. I doubt CUSA would take them back and I doubt they'd want to eat their pride and go back.

All of the other schools that left are screwed too.

these schools would likely gut the A-10 for Bball schools... looks like charlotte is getting out just in time.

I would think the remaining big east schools stick together stick together for a while, but they are awfully spread out geographically

What remaining Big east schools? My understanding was that the conference would dissolve... you need a 2/3rd vote to dissolve the conference... right now it's the 7 catholic basketball schools, cincy, uconn, and usf... (Temple does not have right to vote in dissolution of conference). So essentially right now the 7 schools (70%) could vote to dissolve the entire big east conference.

Wow I havent looked at the big east lately, I thought they had more teams that weren't planning on leaving. Still, Cincy Uconn and USF are still appealing to a mid major conference. Maybe the C-USA takes them

I would giggle if UCONN somehow ended up in C-USA. Just keep them away from the ACC as long as possible.

I wish no ill will on ECU, but I do find some humor in their situation. They applied to the Big East approximately 30 times. They finally get accepted and the conference falls apart a week later.

They'll land on their feet though.

I doubt it changes anything for ND. Still money to gain by joining ACC and establishing new regular "rivalry" games with ACC schools in both sports (even though football would remain independent).
