Big East dismisses ineffective, incompetent, deadweight commissioner

It's unfortunate that the Big East didn't do this a year ago when it might have actually done some good, but the ineffective and unqualified John Marinatto has finally been removed from his post. Now is the time for the Big East to purge any remnants of factions loyal to Marinatto/Tranghese/Gavitt. Marinatto should have never been hired in the first place over Kevin Weiberg or Nick Carparelli. Right now, the Big East's non-football programs to need to sit down, shut up, and get the hell out of the way while real men of action like Rutgers athletic director Tim Pernetti take charge of ongoing television rights negotiations. That's why Marinatto had to go now. You can't have some cronyist nitwit signing off on a crappy deal that would consign Big East football programs to poverty. It's time to play hardball, and whether the non-football schools get lost in the shuffle should be the least of the league's concerns. Now, if the conference wasn't being run by morons who hate football and making profits, we could have just listened to Pernetti a year ago and not seen the conference thrown into turmoil. Update: this ESPN report is laughably bad in many respects.
