Apparently the catholic schools:

St Johns
Georgetown
Marquette
Providence
Villanova
Seton Hall
DePaul

are leaving the Big East for a new conference.

They're attempting to create a basketball driven league. Football drives the money bus, but those schools get little money from football anyway. It's a pretty smart idea to capitalize on a market everyone is ignoring, all while utilizing the strength of their athletic department.
