Conference Realignment: Big East In Such Bad Shape That Navy Isn't Sure About Joining

Cardiac Hill notes that the Big East's reputation is in such a shambles that not even Navy is chomping at the bit to join. From CBSSports.com:

But -- and this is a big one -- [Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk] wanted the league to get its house in order before coming to any decision ...

"I think right now I'd be more comfortable making certain they're comfortable with themselves, and they've got a little bit of work to do."

If it's going to be joining the conference, Navy wants to make sure that schools like West Virginia, UConn and Rutgers will remain. With Pitt and Syracuse now gone, and with rumors about other teams leaving, it seems like no one is rushing in to take their place, and coaches are now voicing criticism of Big East commissioner John Marinatto.
