    Single B12 Thread?

    At this point, aren't we pretty much all or nothing into B12? I would propose 3 threads: 1. B12 Invite -- FACTS. This would be restricted to tweets or comments from appropriate people with bona fides. Yahoos excluded. 2. B12 Invite -- Analysis. This would be all the boneyarders reactions...

    Conference Realignment observation...

    I preface this post by stating the obvious, which is that UConn will likely accept the first option alternative to the AAC that comes its way - I think we all can easily agree on that. However, I have the opportunity to meet with some of the members of the UConn Foundation leadership, as well...

    Why not seek some OOC football/basketball w/MSU?

    I admittedly know very little about the way football is scheduled, but why not reach out to MSU (perhaps not today) to gauge interest in some OOC games. Our basketball programs seem to have a lot of mutual respect, we attempted to hire a football coach from MSU (maybe that's a negative), and...

    Uconn in CR

    Take it for what it is worth, but had a very long talk this evening with a highly placed Uconn person where I had the opportunity to probe and get honest feedback about two issues I feel are pertinent to Uconn athletic success. When discussing CR, I was told (not surprisingly) that we will...

    Not sure I understand the stadium issue...

    There is plenty of speculation about why the ACC and/or B1G have yet to come calling, and many of the reasons (football not strong enough, BC blocking, TV markets, new BB coach, AAU, etc) but I cannot for the life of me understand why the stadium size is called out as an issue. Does anyone (I...

    Herbst to Address Alumni re: Conf Realignment

    I don't think this is anything significant, but I was discussing all the rumor mongering and lack of communication (and PR) coming out of UConn regarding conference realignment with a high placed contact there. I specifically asked her if Herbst had someone on her staff dedicated full-time to...

    The best way to position Uconn for realignment

    With countless posts about what we are doing, or what we should be doing, I am surprised that Uconn has not hired some sort of consultant (McKinsey or other) to help position and market the school to ACC and B1G. We know that Delaney does his work, but all the phone calls and networking that...

    Things that give me solace...

    While I am certainly confused, anxious, and frustrated about what lies ahead for UConn athletics, I am trying to think about this from Susan Herbst perspective...and I will admit, when I do that, I feel more comfortable about where we are heading. First, I work closely with the UConn...

    Exit fees are pure folly....

    I've read and listened to all the arguments made on this board about keeping the BE together, or what is the best scenario/outcome for UConn, but the one thing I cannot seem to wrap my head around is the idea of exit fees providing any sense of commitment. The only schools potentially...

    Drummond reminds me...

    of a young Hakeem Olajuwon. Now granted I have only seen Andre in highlight videos and I know comparing 18yr olds to NBA All-stars is ridiculously premature, but he is about the same size as Hakeem and he seems to have a similar athleticism around the basket. Can play with his back to the...
