Houston AD Mack Rhoades: "But I also really do believe that the Big East has some great assets. I think you can argue that football now is even better than what it was before. And we certainly know the asset that it has in men's basketball, but just overall as a league. There are some talented people that work in that conference office, and I believe we're going to hire a terrific commissioner. I think that there's a lot of optimism, and there should be."
