First court appearance on Thursday in Big East lawsuit, as Miami-only concept gets some ink

As reported here by the AP, the first pre-trial conference will be held somewhere in Connecticut on Thursday in the lawsuit brought by the Big East to stop the departure of Miami and Boston College to the Atlantic Coast conference, amid talk that some Big East members that the suit might be dropped if the ACC takes only Miami, which might be the plan preferred by North Carolina, as reported here. The New York Times expects the ACC to vote finally on Tuesday, going for either the Miami-only plan or the 12-team plan, with or without Virginia Tech, as reported here.
