I don't think anyone here is doubting Fox's understanding of what is good for Fox. Fox jumped at the opportunity to add the flavor of the month over a Louisville program that is poised for long term success that may not be realized monetarily for a few more years. (Then they proceeded to win a BCS bowl and a national championship in basketball...oops.)

NOBODY in the Big East wishes they had kept TCU if it meant not getting Louisville.
