This isn’t your older brother’s Big East. Gone are Syracuse, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Notre Dame and Rutgers. And in come mid-Majors to prevent the extinction. The Butler Bulldogs are one of those mid-Majors. And to prepare for the jump, which has now been from the Horizon League to the Atlantic 10 to the Big East in three years, “Trip”, the Bulldogs real live bulldog mascot has some training to do.
Get to work, Trip. With some extra training, you can win the Big Least.
For those scoring at home, the new Big East basketball lineup features: Butler, Georgetown, Providence, St. John’s, Seton Hall, Villanova, Marquette, DePaul, Xavier, Creighton, Saint Louis and Dayton.
