    Default Pitt Joining Big Ten

    I just heard from a buddy who works at Pitt that Pitt is joining Big Ten...news conference on Friday.

    I don't have a link, and couldn't find anything, so take it for what its worth...he wouldn't lie to me though.

    Sounds pretty absurd to me.... But stranger things have happened, I guess.

    .... Will wait and see.

    Personally, I'd like to see Pitt compete against the Big-10 teams regularly. It would make things alot more competitive...

    But I really think this is just bull****... The reasoning is that Pitt is well-entrenched in the Big East in basketball and I don't see them changing this, but if they did, they would OWN the conference in basketball.... But then again, many players come here BECAUSE of that noteriety.

    ..... I'll wait for official word..... Then fall over from shock....

    Apparently the athletes have already been told, and they are twittering this info...that is where the rumor started from.

    I think it is a win win in football. It will help Pitt get better recruits, because no matter what you diehard Pitt fans think of the Big Esast, it simply was a horrible conference. Plus it gives the big ten a championship game. Plus I think it will help keep PA players in PA.

    As far as Basketball, it will probably hurt Pitts recruiting, since they wont be as visible in places like New York...but it obviously gives The big ten another legitimate basketball program to go with the 1 or 2 they already have..haha.

    ... Still trying to wrap my mind around this concept...

    By Pitt (allegedly) doing this, it will create "ripples" throughout not only the Big East, but Div-1A in general....

    This would be a HUGE action.... There has been "rumblings" about conference re-allignments lately, and this would be the preverbial "icebreaker" with more moves to follow IMO.

    Football, yes..... Basketball, no.... The Big East basketball conference is as good as it gets on this earth. Them leaving the conference is a degredation of a great conference.

    I definitely am not in favor of this. I was ****ed when Boston College and Miami left a few years back. It would seem to me that high school recruits from Western Pa leave, not because Pitt is in the Big East, but because they just want to leave the state. The Big East Conference is greatly improving in football and is the pinnacle of college basketball. I predict Pitt will regret it if they switch. Why though, can Notre Dame be a member of the Big East only in basketball and be an independent in football? They should be made to have the football team join as well or not be Big East at all.

    They are Notre Dame and they can do whatever they want.

    Anyway, further speculation...I am hearing now is that Missouri and Syracuse will probably follow Pitt to the big ten in the next year. giving the big ten 14 teams...(rutgers and ND are still possibilities)

    But Pitt is definite, press conference on Thursday...maybe sooner now that it is getting leaked.

    Makes sense for football, since the Big East has lost too many good football schools over the years but basketball? awful decision by Pitt since Big Ten hoops BLOWS
