Looks like the inevitable happened. San Diego State is poised to announce later today or tomorrow that they're not joining the Big East and along with Boise State will be staying in the Mountain West dealing yet another blow to the Big East.
This time it's supposedly UNLV, BYU, and Fresno St. on deck. Can we please just let this conference die with whatever shred of dignity it has left?

Leaders from the 7 remaining Big East basketball schools got together and decided to wait six months and see what sort of TV contract the Big East can land before they vote to split from the conference. Waiting is a good idea... no need to kill a conference with a hasty decision, only to find out a few months later it could have been saved.
According to the article, Big East schools might only get paid $60-$80 million per year... which is pretty much what Big East schools are getting paid right now - about $4 million per year. If Aresco can land $80 million per year, it might be a slight pay upgrade.
