Brett McMurphy's horrible track record

5

Brett McMurphy from CBS Sports has a track record of being consistently wrong about pretty much everything Big East - whether it's parroting the talking points of disgraced commissioner John Marinatto, or repeating ludicrous lies that Boise State was poised to stay in the Mountain West. McMurphy's latest disaster of an article speculates that the Big East next media deal will be flat. Even though it was already below market value in 2005 once the Big East proved that it wasn't total crap after the first ACC raid. Yes, the Big East lost a ton in basketball - it doesn't matter at all for television revenue, considering the conference is a lot better in football. This article might as well be a press release from ESPN. No, one can never predict who will leave the conference. If the lineup stays the same though, McMurphy will once again to be proven an unquestioning mouthpiece with no willingness at all to vet his biased sources.

Big East/Marinatto lies continue

5

The above story from Brett McMurphy is just pathetic in the way that the quoted sources are blatantly lying. The Big East would have been fine if everyone would have just gone along with Marinatto's below-market value ESPN deal? That's like saying everything would have been fine if everyone just kept kissing Providence's ass, which is exactly what history's greatest monster, Mike Tranghese, thinks we all should have kept doing. It's 100% true that John Marinatto, inept and bumbling as he was, was merely intended to be a tool for the likes of Providence. How does that make him in anyway a sympathetic figure? He got exactly what he deserved, and so did the Big East for that matter! The guy was given a first and goal and was tackled for a safety. The question becomes though, why did the basketball schools finally dismiss their puppet who so faithfully did their bidding? Maybe because the writing is on the wall, and they knew that a loser like Marinatto wasn't capable of negotiating with the likes of ESPN and NBC Sports. Still, just because they realized the error of that mistake three years too late doesn't mean that they will suddenly go for a man of vision like Tim Pernetti as the next commissioner. The problem with the Big East is the dead weight, and the likes of Providence won't like hearing that they are the problem holding the Big East back. They are not going to go from the single-least qualified person for the job in Marinatto to the single-most qualified candidate in Tim Pernetti. That's not their style, and the only reason that the possibility is even being contemplated today was because jettisoning the feeble Marinatto was so out of character to begin with. No, the same idiots who got us in to this mess will never accept Pernetti as commissioner. With any luck though, he will be in charge of negotiating the next conference television deal, if not finding the next league commissioner. Of course, if they had only listened to him a year ago in expanding aggressively, dumping Marinatto, telling Villanova football to get lost, and taking a hard line with ESPN, then the Big East would be in a position of strength today rather than fighting for its life.
