Sound Off highlights anonymous, brief takes on the news offered via telephone by Daily News readers.

What’s the big deal about East Carolina going to the Big East? Have you looked at the Big East Conference? It’s really a garbage dump. It’s the teams that other conferences didn’t want. All the good teams were raided by other conferences. It’s terrible. It’s shameful. All them good teams are gone. It’s just trading one bad conference for another. It was not an upgrade; it really was more of a sideways.
