Bloggin' Rick Endorses Jay Bilas For Big East Commish

Yes, that's a real thing that really happened today on Rick Pitino's blog, which is also a real thing that auto-plays synth-rap tracks.

The 3 questions I am most often asked in recent months:

1. The future of the BIG EAST? leadership, leadership, leadership would be my answer.

[...]

Dave Gavitt's vision could be carried out by one man that has come to the necessary way of thinking towards the future. That man is Jay Bilas. I would take a portion of the Syracuse and Pittsburgh money, give him a 5 year contract and pay him 2 million per year. He has charisma, knows T.V., has a legal background, outstanding presence, and a creative thinker. He would be a grand slam.

Yup, we laughed at the suggestion, too. But then we saw tweets from national media members that weren't completely dismissive of the proposal, were reminded of Pitino's oft-mocked campaigns to add Temple and Memphis to the Big East and had to concede that however unlikely it is, never underestimate the power of Bloggin' Rick. Synth-rap beats can be very persuasive. Almost as persuasive as a former Duke basketball player channeling Jeezy on Twitter.

In the evolving conference landscape, maybe the Big East needs a football guy in charge, whatever that means, but I can certainly think of worse hires than Jay Bilas.
