    12 Reasons Why UConn Will Regret the New Big East

    Yup, my time has come. After 6 years of great interactions with this awesome community, it’s time for me to go. Up until yesterday, I have felt like a part of your community. To all those UConn fans I’ve had great interactions with, I enjoyed discussing CR and other college sports with you. I...

    12 Reasons Why UConn Will Regret the New Big East

    It hurts soooooooooooo much that a Big East school beat us in NCAA Basketball tournament a year ago. There, does that make your fragile ego feel better?

    12 Reasons Why UConn Will Regret the New Big East

    So opinions that don’t match yours aren’t welcome on the CR board anymore and will earn cheap and juvenile retorts. Understood. OK, let me try this again: This a super great deal and I see no possible issues with this move at all. Does that make you happy? I will say this again, I hope this...

    12 Reasons Why UConn Will Regret the New Big East

    I wish all of you the best going forward and hope this move will be a success. My biggest fear for you is that the move will push you to be more of a regional school than a national one like I believe you to are striving to be. Maybe (hopefully) I’m wrong and FSN will be a marketing boon for...

    Happy 40th The Big East

    The Nova Guy is just trolling. Maybe a Fishy throat punch is in order.

    Rutgers surpasses fundraising goal of $100 million for new athletic faclities to compete in Big Ten

    What money does is it attracts names and keeps who you want. It allows more options than teams that don’t. What you do with that money is all up to you. BTW - The Lovie Smith here was routinely laughed at by most B10 fans. Illinois has always been . . . Well . . . Illinois. The only school...

    The Dude is running scared right now. His spin on Oklahoma participating in the new deal because they are the road team is hilarious. It’s sad that he thinks he can drive what’s happening now and into the future with what he says. I miss the car wash days.

    Last of the Realignment Boards

    Buckineer just joined up on the Dirtburglers forum. The regulars are thinking he’s sane. That guy singlehandedly made the WVU scout realignment forum unbearable (and the dude of wv and were on that one). Between the propaganda of kopple and buckineer, that board might implode.

    The Big East Tournament is thriving

    I know every single one of those schools. I know where most of them are located at. I even played against Butler their last year as a DII school in the MIFC (defunct football arm on the GLIAC). Here’s the thing, though. I don’t remember any of those schools joining the Big East. They just don’t...

    The Big East Tournament is thriving

    As long as Jay Wright is there, Nova will be a force. College sports are so coach dependent that even the best programs will flounder once a great coach leaves. Michigan fans were looking forward to the day that Lloyd Carr left so they could upgrade to a “modern” offense. Everybody saw how that...

    The Big East Tournament is thriving

    Fishy might be on to something here. The AAC isn’t going to give UConn money to keep their football team in the league when they will have just spurned them by moving everything else to the Big East. Out of all the ridiculous ideas you have come up with here, this is the most ridiculous one of...

    The Big East Tournament is thriving

    Michigan had more fans in one football game more then what you had in your entire tournament. My statement is just as relevant to this board as yours.

    The view from Toledo: Big Ten gained the world, but lost its soul under retiring Delany

    Yes, but with a caveat. There are a bunch of Big10 alumni in NYC. They are some of the wealthiest alumni from each of those schools and many still follow their school and The Big10. While Rutgers didn’t do anything to bring new fans into the Big10, the brought existing fans together for games...

    Oh boy . . . The Dud of WV is at it again. This is UVA to the Big10 all over again. There is no way that any of the schools would give up their 3 non conference games like that. Dumb.

    Big Ten Source: League targeting OU, Texas for 2024-25

    Those games are considered out of conference and ND can't participate in the ACC championship game. The 5 games are the tradeoff so ND can plant their other sports in the conference. If they were full members, they would have either played Clemson in the regular season or in the championship game.

    Is the AAC even P6?

    Your baseline value isn’t right. Rutgers brings the NYC market for the BTN, not the main media contract. The main media contract is mostly based off of the quality of the teams in the conference. Since the AAC doesn’t have a conference network, it really makes having their football team in the...

    Big Ten Source: League targeting OU, Texas for 2024-25

    Thanks, the school I teach and coach at has already closed today and tomorrow. Due to weather, finals and MLK day, we have had school a grand total of a day and a half since last Monday. Snow and ice storms and now cold. Supposed to be 45 degrees and rainy on Sunday. We have a saying here in...

    Big Ten Source: League targeting OU, Texas for 2024-25

    Yup, those were in the back end of the Main lobby. They might be in the new gift shop by the main entrance. There’s a bunch of historical pictures in there. I knew several people who worked there over the summer. They had a “good time.” A bunch of college kids in a dorm over the summer with...

    We are in a State of Emergency. Most all of the schools here are closed and UofM has closed for the next two days. This is the coldest weather I have seen since my time in the UP 25 years ago (-80 degree and chills).

    Big Ten Source: League targeting OU, Texas for 2024-25

    Went to Cedar Point last year for the first time in several years last summer and that whole Boardwalk area is awesome. Totally changes the atmosphere and vibe of Hotel Breakers. The fire pits and and permanent beach chairs/umbrellas really set the resort atmosphere. The old musty smell is gone...

    Big Ten Source: League targeting OU, Texas for 2024-25

    Bo Schembechler wasn’t a big ND fan either. Michigan did teach ND how to play football. The forward pass was honed by Knute Rockne and a couple of teammates while working at Cedar Point, Ohio. Obviously, this was before there were roller coasters there. It was beach resort and they practiced...

    Is the AAC even P6?

    Tell me why would the AAC allow UConn to leave its football, arguably its weakest sport, in the AAC and take its most valuable out. UConn football in NYC would be nonexistent unless they were winning. Can they? Absolutely they can turn it around. Will they? I don’t know and would the AAC be...

    Big Ten Source: League targeting OU, Texas for 2024-25

    While this would be awesome, I don't think it's possible. Virginia likes being in league with UNC and Duke and I'm not sure they would want to follow Maryland into the Big10. Being in a pod with four midwestern teams would not be entice them to move either. The ACC schools wouldn’t have locked...

    Big Ten Source: League targeting OU, Texas for 2024-25

    Splitting Michigan and OSU would be, but there are some at MSU that would love to be in a pod centered around Chicago. MSU gets the majority of its students from the state of Michigan, but the next biggest area is Chicago. Would MSU like to be in a pod away from UofM? Some would, but if it is...

    Big Ten Source: League targeting OU, Texas for 2024-25

    20 is doable with pods, but 24 wouldn’t be, in my opinion. Combining 2 of the 4 pods into a division of 12 would require 11 conference games and that just doesn’t work with the Big10 schools. 20 would work (9 conference games) and I could see it happening, but who would the 6 schools be? In your...

    Is the AAC even P6?

    So, by your logic, the AAC would accept any football only school because they set the precedent with Navy. Yes, I typed the above very quickly and not clearly. I apologize for that. Instead of Navy does, it should be “because Navy is?”

    Yet You think that the AAC would accept UConn in football only? Because Navy does? That’s fantasy as well. Just waiting until you make that one mistake and Fishy thoat punches your arse out of here.

    Is the AAC even P6?

    I hate to say it, but football is Navy’s strong suit. They are a national name. There are people that will go out of their way to watch Navy even they weren’t in the Navy. UConn football doesn’t have that following. The AAC won’t keep UConn football without the basketball. There is nothing you...
