What a start to the week..
According to our good friend Brett McMurphy over at CBSSports.com John Marinatto, only the third Big East commissioner in conference history behind Dave Gavitt and Mike Tranghese, has resigned today.
As we know the conference has been anything but stable the past couple of years. Marinatto had been the boss since the summer of 2009. The conference is losing two of its pillars, Syracuse and Pittsburgh, to the ACC. Many connected to the league or have followed it were and still are broken by those moves that many also believe could have been prevented had the league been more proactive when conference realignment was headlining the sports conversation.
