07:25 AM ET 06.21 | The revamped conference, one that has faced a great deal of speculation about its very existence over the past few years, may soon have a new leader. Former WNBA commissioner Val Ackerman is in negotiations to become the next commissioner of the Big East, according to multiple sources. But the deal was not done as of Thursday night with both sides hoping for a resolution by the beginning of next week. Ackerman was in Switzerland at FIBA meetings this week but is due back stateside this weekend. The Big East recently had centered on candidates outside of college athletics in Ackerman, Major League Baseball's Tim Brosnan and Boston Celtics president Rich Gotham, a Providence College grad.

Pitino isn't even in the Big East anymore, is he? When does Louisville go to the ACC? Are they in the AAC this year? Man, conference realignment can be confusing, but it doesn't suxxxxx.
