ESPN announced today that the SEC-Big East Invitational is expanding and you can leave those funny little RSVP cards at home. An annual SEC-Big East Challenge is now on the calendar beginning next season and will feature all 12 SEC teams squaring off against foe from the self-proclaimed greatest basketball conference on the planet. With this announcement, UK now has an annual non-conference commitment to a Big East school to be determined later, one of either Kansas-Duke-Michigan State, Indiana, North Carolina and Louisville, as well as some sort of tournament. Yes, Rick, the big boys play a big schedule. Keep reaching for that bar.
