Previewing spring meetings

By Matt Fortuna

The former Big East/soon-to-be American Athletic Conference will hold its annual spring meetings today through Wednesday in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. There is no shortage of items on the agenda for a conference with a new look and a new name. Here are a few topics likely to be addressed this week:
Louisville and Rutgers will not attend the meetings. According to conference bylaws, once a school announces that it is leaving the conference, it cannot attend formal conference meetings. Athletic directors from future members East Carolina, Tulane, Tulsa and Navy are all expected to attend.

A new logo for the conference is not expected to be revealed for a few more weeks.
