ESPN's Andy Katz has dropped a big knowledge bomb about the Big East with an extensive report today. In it, he contends that: -Louisville has officially told the Big East it wants out to go to either the Big 12 or ACC. It did that out of a desire for transparency, which is noble in a way. It also remains to be seen whether those other leagues want the Cardinals. -More privately, UConn wants to go to the ACC with Notre Dame as a partner. Katz neglects to say whether the Huskies' leadership also wants a pony in the exchange. A pairing of Notre Dame and the ACC might sound familiar, though. -The non-FBS basketball schools are committed to the Big East for now, but the conference will "implode" according to a source if Louisville and UConn leave. Good luck to whoever is the next Big East commissioner.
