>>Katsouleas said he also understands the importance of UConn as an athletic institution and said he’s committed to keeping the Huskies as a major player in college sports.
“Yes, I’m committed to football,” he said. “I think it’s part of the identity of who we are as a major, broad-context university and I don’t think savings from cutting it are as great as people think.”
He said he’s also committed to building the American Athletic Conference and has no plans to try and move the school into a different one.<<
Looking in the way back machine wasn't it Lou Perkins who first was given the task of finding a way to fund the Athletic Dept. with no state funds? With the largess of the AD right now this has been lost along the way.
He’s not. They all say that. Getting out can’t be a public goal, it isn’t good for anyone. Once he’s off the radar a little he’ll say something about being “committed to competing at the highest possible level” to appease us.
I want out of the AAC as much as anyone, but at the same time you have to deal with the cards your dealt, or don't you get that?
He is something to look at about D-II playing in the NFL
Not saying this young man is going to be a pro, but to dismiss him because he played D-II ball shows a lack of knowledge of the sport. Sorry but blanket statements are just ignorant.
