Report: Big East contacts Conference USA about acquiring UCF, Temple might be next

Fresh off authorization to pursue expansion, John Marinatto and the Big East have taken the first steps toward acquiring the University of Central Florida, according to a report from the Boston Globe. The Big East has not extended an offer to UCF, but they have spoken to both Conference USA and the university to express interest. The report indicates that an offer could be given, and accepted, in the next few days and once the Golden Knights are on board the Big East is expected to target former member Temple.

So yeah, I don't want to be in this conference anymore.
