Big East's Nick Carparelli Lobs Insult At Pitt Football

Pitt will soon leave the Big East for the ACC, and Big East senior associate commissioner Nick Carparelli couldn't help gloating a bit at Pitt's embarrassing loss to Youngstown State on Saturday.

Nick Carparelli, the Big East's senior associate commissioner, tweeted Saturday afternoon, just as Pittsburgh was wrapping up a 31-17 loss to Youngstown State: "The #BigEast will be a better football conference on the field next year than it has ever been!"

Carparelli later denied that the comment was a shot at Pitt, but that's ridiculous. That's not especially mature behavior coming from the Big East, particularly given that Pitt is still actually in the conference.

Besides, as USA Today points out in the link above, the Big East has a glass-houses problem here -- Houston and Memphis, both of which will soon join the conference, lost this week to Texas State and Tennessee-Martin, respectively. Let's just say there are a bunch of Big East schools in various points of transition that don't have a whole lot to be proud of here.
