How do we know leaving the Big East Conference and moving to the Atlantic Coast Conference was the best move?
For starters, the Big East knew for months (years?) July 1, 2013 was coming, and just like it did for conference realignment, wasn't ready to adapt when the time came.

(So, now you guys know how we felt even before you guys showed up. Good luck, Marquette. #39Points.)
Second, the new American Athletic Conference's future plans rely on USF vs. UCF to be a thing. Yes, that is its plan, according to commissioner Mike Aresco.
AAC's Mike Aresco says UCF-USF rivalry the "cornerstone" of new conference. I already miss Syracuse vs. Rutgers. http://t.co/9LplKHWZ3J— Matt Hayes (@Matt_HayesSN) July 1, 2013
Meanwhile, UConn has no freakin' clue where it is at the moment. #HAHAHAHAUConn
UConn official website doesn't know who's in AAC in 2013. Left out UCF, includes Navy, ECU, Tulsa, Tulane pic.twitter.com/K8hGEDi1fr— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) July 1, 2013
