New York Newsday: Big East is Ready to Roll

Another curtain-raiser on the newly expanded Big East. The article predictably covers the scheduling headaches, but also addresses each of the new members of the Big East with some level of detail.

One passage regarding MU:
At Marquette, a Final Four program in 2003, coach Tom Crean noted that increased interest has driven up ticket sales and opened new areas for recruitment. "There's such a fresh perspective," he said. "The rules have changed, being in the Big East."
