AAC was death by 1000 cuts. It was time. As has been written about ad nauseum, the move to the NBE is a bump of a few million to the bottom line. That @ $1M of that $7M gets paid by the AAC the rest gets paid over 6 years, and still results with UConn making more money than if it stayed. Tough to not to do.If our key players stick with the team it could be a breakout season next year. I really wish we had one more year in the AAC as I think we would be in the running for a division title. The powers that be paid an extra 7 million to take that opportunity away.
Scheduling is going to the difference as to whether this moved killed football. We'll have to wait and see.
