It ain't over till the fat Shalala sings


The University of Miami said Thursday it had received counter proposals from the Big East and would carefully consider them before deciding whether to join the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The university's 19-member executive committee of its board of trustees met with Miami President Donna Shalala and athletic director Paul Dee for more than an hour Thursday to discuss the ACC invitation. No vote was held during that meeting.

"The Big East has informally sent a proposal, or at least a list of proposals, to us and we feel a responsibility to review them," said Shalala, who said she was not ruling out any possibility - including remaining in the Big East.
