According to ESPN, the seven non-FBS schools in the Big East are leaning toward leaving the league. They apparently are weighing whether to try and dissolve the league or just to leave. My own guess - purely a guess - is that the dissolution threat is just an attempt to leverage an agreement for the schools to leave without penalty and maybe to get a cut of NCAA tourney money that hasn't been paid out yet. Aside from just being of general interest for college sports fans, ACC fans will want to pay attention to this because it may affect Louisville's situation and availability. It may also have some effect on the ACC's lawsuit against Maryland if a Big East dissolution puts pressure on the Big 10 to speed up their own expansion plans.
