SNY is the local cable home of the Big East, such as it is, but that deal is set to expire when ESPN’s does after the current academic year. Beyond that lies . . . uncertainty.

But assuming the Catholic, non-big-time-football schools successfully reassemble a basketball-focused league, SNY – New York's only regional sports network without a pro winter team – would appear to be a logical fit.

Right, president Steve Raab? "SNY is really well-positioned to wrap its arms around college football and basketball that means something in our territory," he said. "Eventually the dust will settle and what SNY has to offer will, I have to believe, work itself out."
