Re: UConn to Big East 2020

Thanks McKinney. Juice Stand that was kind of anticipating of a response. Mind you there are 6 football games and 18 basketball games. Anticipated response - The stadium is bigger, hence also posting percent full. Hate the percent full stuff as see it used frequently on the A10 board by all the tea...

Re: UConn to Big East 2020

Re: UConn to Big East 2020

I also think getting to a bowl game matters more to some folks than it does to me. For me it doesn’t mean all that much unless it’s one of the better bowls which are clearly beyond our reach at the moment. The good news is that the AAC has some pretty strong bowl ties as far as G5 conferences go. G...

Re: future scheduling talk

anything to read into with the increasing number of MAC schools on the docket? I see it as schedule filler at this point. Doubtful its anything more than that. Yeah I agree. I think UMass just tries to play as many G5 teams that are relatively close as they can. Some of the MAC teams fit that prett...

Re: UConn back to the Big East?

Umass next to join Big east. USF and UCF headed to Big 12. Temple and Buffalo to A10. UMass, UConn, Temple, Buffalo, Army, Navy, Liberty form alliance or even a small conf for football which will make scheduling much easier with 6 built in games. Who knows who else would end up as Indy in Football?...

Re: UConn back to the Big East?

/\ what if more football games are shifted to Gillette? If it's about capacity (though I'm not entirely sure why it would be), they'd only need to move one game to Gillette per year. That would give us an average capacity in line with the lower end of the AAC. Thoughts on being the replacement to j...

Re: UConn to Big East 2020

If the AAC won't take UConn football, they're not touching us with a ten-foot pole. Sounds like independence is the most likely situation.

Maybe UMass and UConn football to the MAC with the same conditions as the Temple and UMass deal?

Re: UConn back to the Big East?

As I posted on Twitter: It's a longtime rumor for sure, but until proven otherwise it sounds like someone is just looking for clicks. With the AAC's new TV deal, I don't think we can call it a money grab. IIRC they'd be going from ~$6M per year to ~$4M per year in TV revenue. Compared to the P5 mone...

Re: State of the program

Great idea. This could be a big benefit for student athletes. Looks like the application has been out there for a couple of weeks now.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Many have posted that this class is in the top 40’s in the country, but if you look at those rankings, it’s kind of bogus. It’s based on the total number of recruits not the average ranking of each recruit. For example, there are some teams with 2 recruits who are just slightly behind UMass. But, i...
