Always. Be. Closing.

You’ve got to (grudgingly) admire the way ESPN goes about its business.

As the University of Houston, meanwhile, approaches its first year in the Big East, ESPN reportedly has a week to match or pass on NBC’s bid to pay what SI.com describes as between $20 million and $23 million for Big East rights over six years. The league has been hit by rampant defections in recent years, but speculation is that ESPN could renew the Big East deal to fill in the gaps that will be created on ESPNU when it launches its SEC network.

Maybe the NCAA ought to restructure D-1 football on the basis of which ABC/ESPN channel a conference’s games appear on.

    What is the world coming to? A team in Houston, Texas in the Big East.

    Gosh, makes one want to drop ESPNU (if you have paid for it for several years) in favor of ES”PU”N which you already paid for and didn’t use. Kinda like robbing Dick to pay Jane (hell, she’s going to get the money anyway).

    Dick is going to lose Spot in the proceedings anyway.
