Big East isn’t a little brother (12-15) Russell Steinberg wrote a piece that Chris Mack leaving for Louisville was a little brother situation for the Big East. Totally disagree. Big East makes just as money as other places in college hoops. Louisville happens to be a top 10 job. Even if they get probation, it’s a top job and close to where he already lives. Foolish stuff.
