Teams like Syracuse, Pitt, BC and UConn never should have left. Best basketball conference in the history of the game.
Even after they were gutted and told all year by national media that the conference was garbage, its the Big East that wins it all!!!
UConn didn't exactly leave, they kinda got kicked out. After the OG Big East/ACC shuffle a few years back, the 7 non-football big east schools decided to leave and create a "new league" and they kept the Big East name. UConn gets left behind because they have a football program, but it's not strong enough to be attractive to a major conference.
I'll always have a soft spot for Nova though. I'm very happy for the entire program.
