CSN Washington dot com yeah. Joining us now on the telephone to talk more about this -- battle a senior writer at. Sports Illustrated -- I think the most important thing everyone wants to know is. How important was it to you with this new conference to remain the big east and not be the Catholic seven or nine or twelve or however many ends up being. I think there's seven English Bulls had two goals. Want waters. We want to beat each named Choo was we want that's where are under the age old beat each it duo. You've been stepped and it has to be asked to be decreased ET and because they got a boat out of it or dump it off but. I think don't -- -- sure most I have the last at the big east Brandon obviously -- which where are. On gardeners and -- don't yet it looks very likely and it is on tape or China tomorrow they'll be a big east. We know the Catholic seven schools those traditional powerhouse basketball schools were hearing Butler and Xavier could be coming on as well. Who else could be in how does this affect the 810 which is obviously. Gonna take a hit and more specifically how does affect Notre Dame. Well let's start let's start who's gonna commit next year technically. You're gonna if your ball. And I actually dollars each city where there weren't and believes -- rich. With -- -- Q you're gonna application to aid. -- And now Saint Louis so to -- a book about it and are now it will be and urged ambient shorter quicker and change. Everybody candidates and that's only good streak to eight and is that. So much more or CU will which I think is is a better fit in our program which model that they actually eight. I'm a public private -- rare -- -- that that term piece here a little bit but certainly I think when -- sure let's bat. Georgetown was not a BC your record. That is going to be state error grip. What does this mean now for Notre Dame moving in the ACC. For schools like UConn schools like Cincinnati what happens to them. Well what what Notre Dame which is it's pretty simple they are now in game we can lead over -- -- -- so. They are they get pretty ACC ACC basketball. Schedule has not been completed yet there are small -- EC for them to get notre main incident EC speed for next year. If not they need return just out there and per year sentence in are likely. In an 88210. Or playing in key. That assessment you here's -- -- -- for a first year but there weren't a terse simple. And then UConn in and the former big east -- Sure you know they are. They're averaging that much -- and now they they're waiting relationship potentially great -- -- you know -- -- that you read or will know exactly. I. But not to go to air and they're gonna beat the Chiefs -- very much -- village and I don't like you certainly are collect a hey Al because it's it's exponentially last. Then it and the cap center and and it's football so that -- really -- reality pre concert and -- -- -- pretty. That just about sums up everything for college sports a new reality and not necessarily a pretty one. -- CSN Washington dot com it.
