Come 2005-2006, the league will add five new members: University of Cincinnati, DePaul University, University of Louisville, Marquette University and the University of South Florida.
The turmoil that followed the Atlantic Coast Conference's invitation to University of Miami, Virginia Tech University and Boston College, led to the demise of the old BIG EAST and ultimately the creation of a new-look conference.

More on this story can be found in this month's issue of The Juice.
