08:20 AM ET 05.10 | Are the Big East's basketball powers considering defection to create their own hoops-first league? The answer, according to Joe Bailey on his third day as interim commissioner, is no. In a teleconference with reporters on Wednesday, Bailey -- who agreed to become the temporary head of the Big East after John Marinatto resigned Monday -- declared he had heard no talk of a mass defection. ... [The] former CEO of the Miami Dolphins, among other positions, he actually poked fun at the claim. "Yeah, I have a particular position on speculation versus reality," he said. "People that are stockbrokers, stock pickers, people that pick games, things of that nature, are all speculators." Perhaps.
