Big East commissioner John Marinatto spoke somewhat openly about the recent upheaval in college football during the conference's media day on Tuesday in Rhode Island.
He certainly didn't want to look back on that crazy 10-day stretch in June when the entire college football landscape was changing by the minute. There were a lot of nervous conferences watching the developments play out. Instead, Marinatto was focused on the future when meeting with the media on Tuesday.
One thing's for certain: the Big East is looking to survive and making plans for when the next round of realignment occurs. Much like the Big 12, the Big East will need to focus on its television contract and producing more revenue.
