So what is the problem? UConn wanted to be a Power 5 school with a top football program for years. Now they finally realize that the sports strength of the school is basketball i. e. The Big East for better or for worse. Do you really think that the thinning of these sports is going to make a difference? My opinion: nothing. The State is losing population and pushing the envelope on the residents who remain. Money has to be well spent and tough decisions made. Why shouldn't the University evaluate what is profitable and what isn't. Sounds like they are moving in the right direction, he says as he receives his envelope for a financial contribution.
