Big East History Lesson

Kudos to the Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel for his expansive reporting in this week's series of Big East curtain raisers. Today, Rosiak delivers a history lesson on the nation's finest basketball conference.

The league, dominated by charismatic coaches since its inception, adds a few more this year. As Crean indicates in the article, "the identity was formed early and the common thread has been it's continued to be an unbelievably competitive league with night-in, night-out battles with teams that compete for national championships.......Coaches that were part of the personality of the league are now in the Hall of Fame or on their way, and I think that's what's great."
