What is the Big East doing?

1

The Big Ten has it right - expansion should be driven primarily by television markets. The Big East, not so much. Tulane in theory adds New Orleans, but they're a private school, not a large public university like Rutgers and Maryland. ECU is another warm body that has good fan support and has had some success in football, but brings little in terms of television markets. This might be pre-emptive inventory if the conference loses any further teams. According to CBS Sports, BYU again recently rejected overtures from the league. Oh well. Once again, you have to hope everything works out for the other football schools, but it sure will be hilarious watching Providence have to travel to New Orleans, Dallas, Houston and the like. Oh well, back to ignoring all the vitriol while counting our gigantic pile of money.
