Is the UConn shot calling it a potentially competitive game?
yeah more competitive than Ball State

You play a UConn or a UMass type team for one game, with them paying a smaller guarantee since you’re not flying, and then play an Albany or Stony Brook or Delaware who will pay us a decent guarantee, together that’s about as much as we would make playing Ball State,” Barrio said. “Now you have two games where you’re probably a little more competitive and the atmosphere is fun for fans.”

We lost to New Haven back in the day. We’re arguably worse now. So no. That is too risky until proven otherwise.

CCSU is already contracted to play at Eastern Michigan in next year. They will likely collect about $300-400k for the game.

Rumor had it that CCSU was in discussions to play at UConn in both 2020 and 2022. With the recent announcement of Maine playing UConn in 2020 (and Holy Cross already on the Huskies schedule in 2021), the soonest the Central will appear in E. Hartford is likely 2022 season.
