It looks like the Big East football conference is officially done:
Five schools filed a lawsuit Friday to try to prevent Miami and Boston College from jumping to the Atlantic Coast Conference, accusing them of secretly taking part in an expansion plan that could ruin the Big East.
The lawsuit, filed in state Superior Court in Hartford, Conn., says Miami and Boston College professed loyalty to their conference while concocting a “deliberate scheme to destroy the Big East and abscond with the collective value of all that has been invested and created in the Big East.”
Big East schools went ahead with millions of dollars in renovations and upgrades under the assumption they would be part of a healthy conference for years to come, the lawsuit contends.
Go to hell, Miami and BC, but Miami in particular. One more reason to dislike Donna Shalala.
