New Conference?

How will the coming conference realignment -- assuming it is seismic -- impact Marquette and the Big East non-football schools?  Could it lead to a basketball-school only conference, or even a national Catholic Conference?

If we end up with 16-team leagues the SEC might feel it needs to expand and pillage the ACC.  To make up for the losses the ACC could in turn pillage some football schools from the BE, say Louisville, Connecticut, Pittsburgh and West Virginia.  Even if Rutgers and Syracuse were not gobbled by the Big 10 they'd leave the BE in search of football competition.

Is a scenario possible in which the Catholic schools from the BE join with other Catholic schools from the Midwest and Northeast to form the "Eastern Catholic Conference"?  Marquette, DePaul, Villanova, Georgetown, Seton Hall, St. John's, Providence from the BE, Xavier, Dayton, St. Louis and Duquense, St. Joe's & St. Bonaventure from the A-10, maybe a Creighton, Canisius or Siena if they need to fill things out.

It's no BE but at least we'd cover a lot of big metro areas.  In the event the BE falls apart, is this the best we can hope for?
