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 SNY.tv.
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.
