Big East not going down without a fight, brings on Paul Tagliabue

Written by Juan Cena on Wednesday, April 21 2010 and posted in SWRT

All signs seen to point to a Big 10 raid on the Big East. But don't think the Big East is just going to go quietly into that dark night. The conference has announced that former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue will be talking on a voluntary advisory role.
Paul Tagliabue will have the title of Special Advisor, where he will "provide strategic advice on future television arrangements and other priority matters." "Other priority matters" probably involving the Big 10's eying of Rutgers, Syracuse, Pitt, and possibly even UConn.
Bringing in Tagliabue as Special Advisor does seem to be a sign that the Big East is taking all the expansion talk seriously. Tagliabue is credited with making the NFL into the machine it is today. It certainly looks like the Big East is starting to cover its wagons for the fight of its life.
