Big East Anchors


I have read that most conferences are anchored by 2 traditionally dominant programs.  B1G has Michigan & Ohio State.  Big 12 has Oklahoma & Texas (was Nebraska & Oklahoma in the Big 8 and Texas & Texas A&M in the SWC). The SEC has Alabama & Georgia (but also LSU & Florida).  The Pac 12 has USC & UCLA.  Looking at the Big East even with Syracuse and Pittsburgh who are the conference's dominant programs to serve as anchors for the conference?  While the thought of a conference of equals may sound appealing, within any groupings there has to be a leader or two (an alternate).  It may be that having such anchor programs set the standard and tone, and in doing so, build a culture and provide stability for the conference.  True?

Does the lack of anchors in the Big East make it less stable?  Will this change with expansion to 12?
