The list of Ivy coaches who chose to move on when the big boys called is a lot longer than the Ivy coaches who chose to stay.

Yes Xavier/Butler are Cinderella teams this year and obviously Villanova is still a top team, but the rest of the Big East today is mid-major and cannot be compared to the ACC or Big Ten. It was a great conference twenty years ago, but teams like Syracuse and Miami left for the ACC. They don't even play football any more and several of the teams are not even from the East??? See attached list of members.

If the Big East is a mid-major league, it's the greatest mid-major league that has ever existed. Boasts the reigning national champion, got seven bids this year and was rated the third-strongest league in the nation ahead of the PAC 12, B1G and SEC.

I get that it doesn't have football and that it lost some of its traditional membership, but it's still a major basketball league.

When the Big East was still the BIG EAST, it was the finest basketball conference in the nation. Newly constituted, it remains a Power Conference. There's nothing mid-major about that group of schools. And they're all fun to root for every time a Football Factory League sends a basketball team on the floor to oppose them.

From a basketball standpoint, who cares that BC, Miami, Pitt, Rutgers, WVa, and Va Tech left the BE?

Again, from a basketball standpoint, the teams that replaced them are as good or better.

If the Pac 12 lost Washington State for whatever reason in basketball, and brought in Gonzaga as a replacement...

...would that be making Pac 12 basketball stronger or weaker?
