    I'm going to read way too much into this and assume the AAC is toast after 4 teams get picked that aren't us. this is not inspiring, Mike, you're terrifying me.

    No one, including this guy, actually knows what's going to happen tomorrow. Stay positive.

    That UH, UC, and the two florida schools theory would be awful if true. Worst case scenario.

    The only positive I could spin from that scenario, while still the worst possible outcome, is being the benefactor of a ton of exit fees that keep us at bay in G5. It bridges the gap further until either ND could join ACC or UConn achieves AAU status. Borderline insane, but it is more money coming back to UConn.

    Sounds like Mike has been lurking on the BY for the past day or so.

    Mike sounds to me like a cult leader in the gap of time between hearing that the ATF is coming but before the kool-aid that smells vaguely of almonds is distributed.

    Was Mike Melio involved in the Diaco hiring process? Could you imagine those two guys getting in a room together?

    I would imagine a donor with his net worth and track record of high-profile donations had to have been.

    Honestly, no way is he remotely plugged into anything. If UConn is out they're out, but this dude is no predictor of anything.

    You're talking specifically Conference Realignment?

    Just clarifying because the quote (@Stairmaster 's) you responded to was in reference to his involvement in a coach search. He is very close/supportive of basketball and football programs.

    I doubt that Mike can't even get a hint as to what is going on. He probably has Susan's cell #. My hope is the administration and Melio think we have a 50/50 shot or better and that they are just worried about the outcome at this point. Anything less is not good. Of all the crazy, made up Tweets, let's hope Connecticut politicians leaning hard on ESPN is the one that is true.

    Ur a clown honestly.

    If you think he's got any info it's basically the same as Benedict dropping a deuce during the tailgate. Has the B12 said anything to anyone re: any expansion or 2,4 teams?

    If there were any decisions we'd see more leaks by now. I doubt they have finalized anything yet.

    McHugh prolonged Hathaway and gave us Pasqualone. I wouldn't exactly put his mug up on the Pantheon of great leaders. If anything, he is as much responsible for where UConn is today as anyone is or has been at UConn. He deserves unmitigated scorn.

    This is the only thing that reassures me. Most pundits don't have us among the most likely scenarios.

    ...But none of them even thought they'd vote to pursue expansion talks in the first place. Presidents got together and made a decision.

    Let's hope they do the same again and decide the most important thing is working towards some sort of network.

    Or they'll rub everyone's face in the fact they got more money without expanding and mention no schools of value were available.

    Not necessarily. We should scour the internet for Cincy and Houston to see what's going on there though.
