08:16 AM ET 02.20 | During the course of their courtship, there were signs of incompatibility in any potential union. Big East emails obtained by CBSSports.com show the league's reluctance to accommodate Boise State's demands in the days before the Broncos returned to the Mountain West. In the process, Boise floated to Big East Commissioner Mike Aresco a potential three-game television deal with NBC built around Notre Dame games. "[Boise State President Bob Kustra's] preferred tactic is to still put pressure on us," Aresco told his membership [presidents and athletic directors] in a Dec. 30 email. Boise rejoined the Mountain West after the league restructured its revenue sharing.

May Aresco's Big East expire, soon, and the Catholic Seven rightfully claim the "Big East" moniker.
