STATEMENT OF BIG EAST COMMISSIONER MIKE ARESCO
REGARDING DEPARTURE OF THE UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE

We enjoyed having Louisville in the Big East Conference and we wish them well.

The Big East has anticipated the continuing realignment that is reshaping college athletics and has already made important additions as part of our vision for the future. We will continue moving forward to fulfill that vision, which includes a strong national football conference and a strong and storied basketball conference. Big East teams will continue to compete and succeed at the highest level and, as always, will combine athletic and academic excellence. With schools stretching from coast to coast and in many of the top U.S. media markets, the Big East has become a truly national conference with outstanding young men and women competing across a full range of sports.

We are committed to a vibrant and dynamic future for the Big East Conference.

    Mike: Walked into a hornets nest huh! I’d like to say that” these challenges are opportunities for success” but this is crazy. As a UCONN season ticket holder, the new Big East is the really the Big Least. New members leaving, new members looking to leave and traditional members leaving so with that being said, don’t try to spin this bad situation because most of us just don’t believe it or want to hear it. Bottom line to me is, the league is looking like the new Conference USA with what’s left of the Big East.Nice!
