I was born and raised in Louisville. Several of my family are graduates of UofL. My cousin did the UofL cheerleader’s tanning in the 1990s. I have a good collection souvenirs of the 1979-80 Championship Team, including autographs...I could go on and on about my UofL spirit and perhaps that is why I am writing this. I know why UofL is in the Big East Conference and that is because Pitino is from Up North. I see no reason why else UofL is in this conference. Geographically it is terrible—It is not like we can drive 6 to 8 hours to game, like Kentucky fans can in the Southeastern Conference. It is ridiculous why UofL has to be with those Yankee teams and not in a conference that includes teams closer to home. You have to get a plane ticket or drive 12 to 14 hours and by then you are so tired from driving, who feels like cheering the Cards on. I think this Big East thing is something Louisville needs to change and not let Pitino call the shots.

Louisville is in the Big East because it is a BCS conference. They joined for football...not for basketball, and the results are remarkable...we could win a national title in this conference, we couldn't win any more than a Wal-mart gift certificate at the liberty bowl (out-house of a stadium) in CUSA.

Plus i think the negotations to get in the Big East begun before Pitino came there. It was not a basketball decision. Ul could stay in mos conferences and still generate revenue. it was 90% a football decision
