The Big East isn't going down without a fight.
CBSSports.com has confirmed that Tulane will be joining the Big East in all sports. An SI.com report also states that East Carolina is joining the league. That would give the league 15 members by the time Navy is scheduled to join the league in 2015.
Tulane and East Carolina would be leaving Conference USA.
The Big East has been fighting perceptions that it will dissolve after the Big Ten raided Rutgers last week.
