The next "big" event will most likely be the outcome of the WVU-Big East lawsuit. What comes from that will shed some light on how fast things will happen. The new Big East with the teams from the west won't last long, in my opinion. UConn and Rutgers will be looking for their first available out. The big fish, Notre Dame, probably won't decide anything until after UConn leaves the Big East or after it's determined whether or not they will get shut out of a BCS +1 or whatever the new BCS model is. When the road to the MNC becomes too narrow for their fat ego to squeeze through they will finally join a conference for football. Alabama has now caught up to them so they may be getting a bit more desperate. They haven't sniffed a MNC in like 20 years. How long can it possibly take for them to realize the new college football world order?
