if UCONN can not get in b-10 or acc they need and other big east schools need to take bold action. forget football. make b-ball king. withdraw fron NCAA. start a new super bb league with some of out other remaining big east school. there are more than enough non bcs b-ball schools to quickly form several conferences. PAY the palyers. this will help attract all the best hoop players. the ncaa will be screwed they get all their income fron b-ball tournament. bcs schools are so caught up in football they will be slow to react. new league will have most if not all major metro areas where most players come from and the biggest by far tv audiences. make b-ball king.

UConn spent nine figures on football. They aren't going to abandon it, and they cannot make b-ball king and be relevant.

They already tried that.

if the football program is not making money, it's because we're paying for the stadium

that debt is not going away, so you try to take in all the revenues you can

no matter how many SSSSSSS you make, that's reality and that's not going to change. Your option is not on the table

I absolutely agree that there should and will be a new basketball league born out of this mess.

Pray to your respective god that UConn is not a part of it.

Do you really think we will continue to be a basketball power if we are not in a BCS related conference? Football is money, you have to respect that, which apparently is a lesson the BE have not learned.

I think you missed the 'NOT' in my post there.
