It is a business, after all..........

It just seems appropriate somehow that Syracuse’s $7.4 million buyout package from the Big East to join the ACC should be reported on Bloomberg.

Apparently the Big East is a center of optimism where dreams of money, name recognition and technology overcome distance, geography, common sense and irony. Boise State is in the Big East: "double speak," or so I would think.

The Big All Over The Place works for me.

And now Pitt.......

From TribLive:
Pitt will pay $7.5 million to leave the Big East and join the ACC next year.

Under an agreement announced Wednesday, Pitt will pay $2.5 million over the original $5 million exit fee and leave the conference effective July 1, 2013, 17 months ahead of the Big East’s 27-month waiting period.
