Conference Realignment: Big East Merger Not Going To Happen

So, that Big East merger that was to include the Mountain West and Conference USA that was reported on Saturday morning, yeah that is not going to happen:

Big East officials are "not considering" joining a super-conference that would stretch from coast to coast and incorporate as many as 28 or 32 schools, a highly placed league source told

The Big East is still considering a 12-team league and more reports are coming out that the Houston Cougars are expected to authorize a change of conferences and the end result is joining the Big East. Again, with all of the conference realignment rumors going on everything is just a rumor or report and nothing official.
