Has anyone taken a look at this challenge and the ACC/B1G version to see how they are different? If that one were to go away, our fans would be up in arms (er, I certainly would be). Forgive the ignorance, I know little about the SEC/BE variety.
They're different in that there were fewer "name" basketball schools in the SEC and the Big East is a revolving door of schools. There was no real connection. An SEC-Big XII challenge -- as an example -- would have more luster as the two leagues at least share some common borders.
Thanks for reading,
