Jim Chaney to Arkansas, Mizzou Hoops to Arizona (next year), and the Big East to dust.

With his hire of Jim Chaney, Bret Bielema may have made Mizzou's O.C. hiring process a little clearer.

For those who haven't yet read, Chaney agreed to become Bret Bielema's new offensive coordinator at Arkansas last night. I think I have enough Chaney thoughts at this point for a standalone post, so I'll do that here in a bit. But I'll go ahead and place the Chaney links here in the water cooler.

I feel a little queasy linking to ESPN when it comes to the Big East story -- I feel the WWL has done a lot to drive the "Big East is falling apart????" story through the weeks and months, and I feel it has created the story to an extent -- but in this case, it is breaking what appears to be a legitimate development, one that could have quite a few shockwaves as a result.

  • The Big East Might Be A Figment Of Our Memories Soon Seven Catholic schools leaning toward leaving Big East, sources say

    The presidents of the Big East's seven Catholic, non-Football Bowl Subdivision schools are expected to decide on their future in the Big East in the coming days, and it "would be an upset" if they remained in the league, sources told ESPN.

    The seven schools -- DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Providence, St. John's, Seton Hall and Villanova -- are "close to a consensus on what they want to do next," a source said Wednesday.

    The presidents of the seven schools are scheduled to conduct a teleconference with Big East commissioner Mike Aresco on Thursday and are expected to issue a statement on their schools' future in the next 24 to 48 hours. […]

    It's unknown whether they would attempt to dissolve the league or leave the league as a group. The league can be dissolved in a vote of the league members by a two-thirds majority, according to Big East bylaws. With all of the Big East's recent defections, there are only 10 members (the seven non-FBS schools, plus Cincinnati, UConn and South Florida) that can vote on the league dissolving.

    A source told ESPN on Wednesday that Temple, as a football-only member, has voting rights but can't vote on dissolution of the league. With Temple unable to vote, that gives the seven basketball schools enough votes to dissolve the league.

    Sources said there are multiple legal entanglements that make the voting situation "complex." (Dana O'Neill): Did the Big East core of Catholic basketball schools finally wake up?
