C7 Conference Updates

Hadn't seen much posted recently about the As Yet Unnamed Conference, so decided to take a look around the web. Apparently, we missed the newest round of news/rumors:

1) Feinstein wrote about DeGioia's job of bringing in the additional schools:

"The conference leaders want six eastern and six western — really, midwestern — schools. The eastern division of the league will consist of Georgetown, St. John’s, Seton Hall, Villanova, Providence and either Richmond (also a non-Catholic school) or Siena — a late entry but a potentially appealing one because it’s a Catholic school that (more importantly) plays in a 15,500-seat arena in Albany, N.Y.

"The western conference would consist of Marquette, DePaul, Saint Louis, Xavier, Dayton and Butler. If Butler decides not to leave the Atlantic 10 — which it joined only this season — or if the presidents decide to go with Catholic schools only, the University of Detroit Mercy would come into the picture. Creighton, another Catholic school considered a potential candidate, is considered too far west (Omaha, Neb.) for teams in non-revenue sports to travel."

I'm guessing this conference division would allow for a 16 game conference schedule (2 games with each school in your division and 1 game with each school in the other division). I'd be happy to play Villanova and St. John's twice, but the western conference seems a bit better. Also--to calm fears--Siena has supposedly said they are not interested (http://blog.timesunion.com/collegesports/siena-ad-responds-to-report-of-possible-catholic-7-invite/15440/). But what's the value of Richmond over VCU?

2) The Georgetown and Butler bulldogs recently had a photo op together.
