Statement from Big East on WVU’s departure

Big East Commissioner John Marinatto

So, the Big East even put in their two cents about the settlement between them and WVU. But, we’re not going to “just post it.”

No way, Jose! We’re going to tear this baby apart, FireChuckLandon.com-style! Time to expose the Big WTF Conference and their spin on the settlement.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The BIG EAST Conference Board of Directors has voted to terminate West Virginia University’s membership in the Conference, effective June 30, 2012.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA… “terminate.” How cute, Marinatto… instead of saying, “WVU and the Big East has agreed to a settlement that’s satisfactory to both parties” and leaving it at that, you also had to add, “THEY CAN’T QUIT, THEY’RE FIRED” like the immature, incompetent dunce that he is.

This vote is conditioned on WVU fulfilling its obligations under a settlement agreement with the Conference that resolves the litigation between the parties.
“WVU, please beg Boise State to join a year early. Do whatever needs to be done!”

West Virginia University has acknowledged and agreed that the Court in Monongalia County, West Virginia, will enter a judgment that the BIG EAST Conference Bylaws are valid and enforceable, and will dismiss with prejudice all of West Virginia’s claims against the Conference.” stated John Marinatto Commissioner of the BIG EAST Conference.
Hahahahahaha talk about a deal… WVU acknowledges (with their fingers crossed behind their collective back) that the Big Least’s bylaws are legit while Meatball counts the money.

The Bylaws establish the circumstances by which a member may unilaterally withdraw from the Conference, which includes payment of an exit fee and a minimum of 27 months’ notice. The Bylaws also provide that the Conference may, by 3/4 vote, terminate the membership of any member and that is the process by which West Virginia University will depart as a member of The BIG EAST Conference.
Yaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwnnnnnnnnn……………… *FART NOISE!* nobody cares. I’ll bet my tax refund $$$ that Pitt and Syracuse also don’t wait out the 27 months. Any takers? Will they also be “terminated” in this style in 2013?

In deciding to terminate West Virginia University’s membership, the Conference took into account the accusations that WVU asserted against the BIG EAST in the lawsuit that is now being dismissed. The Conference also took into account the steps that West Virginia University was willing to take to resolve the litigation, including the payment of an exit fee well in excess of that required by the Bylaws. In light of all of these factors, the BIG EAST Conference felt that it was in its best interest to terminate West Virginia University’s membership and conclude the litigation.
Yeah, such as the Meatball Gang owing WVU some money (despite what others say)… enjoy your $20million, assholes! Hope it’s worth showcasing San Diego State vs. UConn or Boise State vs. Cincinnati as your “Big East Game of the Week brought to you by PNC Bank.”

The BIG EAST Conference wishes the West Virginia University student-athletes success in their future athletic endeavors. With the recent addition of Boise State University, the University of Central Florida, the University of Houston, the University of Memphis, San Diego State University, Southern Methodist University, and the United States Naval Academy, the future for the BIG EAST Conference has never been brighter.
“Future…has never been brighter.” Newsflash, that light at the end of the tunnel is an oncoming train known as Conference Realignment Round 3, and it will be the death knell for the Big Least Conference! So long, you jerks!
