    Actually, Louisville WILL be in that Conglomerate...for a year.

    A definition of Grand Slam:

    1. The Big East becomes a highly successful basketball-centric conference, elevating its brand and the brands of each of its members, as well as continuing to flood each member school with gobs of money.

    2. Xavier becomes a/the flagship of this group, making Final Fours and winning a NC or three along the way.

    3. Dayton continues to rack up .500 conference season marks in the remodeled A10, while it otherwise witnesses its home attendance plummeting to under 8k with part of the reason being that Valpo becomes its top OOC home game; in other words, the '60's never looked so good.

    4. UC stays put in the Yet To Be Named Conglomerate, with Mick Cronin signing on for on ironclad 10 years, which he personally enjoys, since there are no fans in the seats to yell at him directly; UC football otherwise enjoys going to post-season bowls in Mississippi and Idaho after winning their conference championship by taking out Tulane in an end-of-season thriller in front of 18,500 at Nippert.

    Depends if the Maryland buyout is ruled valid. But I said, either next year or 2014. In any event, no longer than 1 year for either.

    I don't think SLU is in "jilted lover mode" as much as "we realize how Biondi can *bleep* it up".

    Probably the most interesting thing I saw recently involves Xavier. Fr. Graham was in San Jose (where the Billikens were playing). At the same time, Father Biondi was in Asia.

    That is all.

    BTW, go win a Big East title next year!

    Hey, there may have been some important missionary work in Asia!

    Would have been much more hopeful if both presidents were seen together. Then maybe we could say outreach had begun.

    You should dominate the whatever the hell it is conference next year.

    The real question is, will you ever play a game in the ACC?

I have not yet found a web presense for an official NBE website yet, though I suspect that is low down on the totem pole of things to get done at this point.
    Here's a t-shirt if you just can't wait any longer:
