More expansion rumors, this time with Big East

Jun 17, 2010, 1:48 PM EDT

I thought the conference realignment chatter would calm down once the Pac-10 and Big 12 settled their futures. Silly me.

Orlando TV station WKMG reported that Central Florida and Memphis could be invited to join the Big East conference as early as next week.

The good news? This rumor was denied fairly quickly.

Memphis athletic director R.J. Johnson told the Memphis Commercial Appeal that the school “has not been contacted about any conference realignment.” Adding to that was Big East commissioner John Marinatto telling FanHouse that the report wasn’t true.

Then again, this can’t possibly be the last realignment rumor of the summer. Or the year. Or the decade. Best get used to it.

Mike Miller’s also on Twitter, usually talkin’ hoops.
