If the 7 Catholic basketball schools leave the Big East for the A-10, remove all sharp objects, shoelaces & belts from Cincy and UConn.

The more I think about it, the Big East Catholic basketball schools should create a Catholic league and go guilt some schools into joining.

Hey NCAA, Thanks for not having a 16 team Football Playoff. It really helped our Basketball Super Conference. Regards- The Big East.
