Looks like the so-called "Catholic 7" get to keep the Big East name plus rights to hold the conference tournament at MSG. The football schools keep $100m and will be playing in a conference with a new name...
(Edit: am I the only one seeing this site in blue instead of orange right now?)

No blue here.
This is what I see...
I am glad it is working out that way. The Big East has always been about basketball. Growing up in NJ I had friends play basketball at Villanova, St. Johns, and Providence. I couldn't imagine those schools not being in the Big East.
Any idea what the new conference is going to be called?
The article calls it "yet to be named"... As for the blue site thing, seems to be a glitch on mobile - Wes said he'd seen it before as well. Looks fine on my laptop.
Guessing that will be the conference that Memphis is in. It's ironic that even when the try to join a more relevant conference, they fail!
There are only four answers to any question: Yes, No, I don't know, or the Correct Answer.
It sucks being a Villanova fan losing a bunch of annual games like Syracuse, Pitt, and Uconn... but ultimately it comes down to football and villanova and the rest of the Catholic 7 aren't D1 so I completely understand it...
Getting Butler and Xavier will strengthen the league Big time. Still some good schools, rumors of Creighton and VCU to
Creighton is most likely part of that breakaway group of schools. They have ties to all of those schools already.
