Judgment Day is only a few hours away. I know, right? I should totally stock up on toilet paper, milk, and bread.
Or do you only do that for snow storms, hurricanes, and when visitors from out of town come to stay at your house? I don't know. It's hard keeping things straight right now, considering blood is about to fall from the sky, and I really don't think my dry cleaner is going to be able to get that out of my shirts.
Anyway, enough about my Judgment Day issues. You know who really has a problem right now? John Marinatto and the rest of the Big East Conference big-wigs. I'm not talking about the league's television contract problems or all of this nonsense about conference expansion. I'm talking about something bigger, man.
What I'm worried about is that, like, half of the conference is disappearing before the end of the weekend.
I'm serious, guys. This is a big, big problem. Just take a look at this:
|University of Cincinnati||Public|
|University of Connecticut||Public|
|University of Louisville||Public|
|University of Notre Dame||Catholic|
|University of Pittsburgh||Public|
|St. John's University||Catholic|
|Seton Hall University||Catholic|
|University of South Florida||Public|
|Texas Christian University||Christian|
|West Virginia University||Public|
This is it, man. God is coming to pronounce judgment and he is taking all of the Big East's true-believing sectarian institutions with him. They're going with the Lord, and there isn't a damn thing that Marinatto can do about it. Even that knucklehead Mike Tranghese would be totally screwed in this situation.
What's even worse is that those that are not swept up to the great beyond are staring down Biblical punishment. This can't be good for all of us heathen-supporting fans that remain on our earthquake ravaged planet. I have a sneaking suspicion that the punishment for all of the remaining schools is that they are going to have to extend a Heaven-mandated invitation to Memphis and Central Florida to join its Christ-partitioned conference.
This is kind of what Dante warned us about, you guys.
