I would have expected UConn to totally dominate the conference, but the fact is UConn has been poor in football, mediocre in basketball (men) (in conference), and not really too stellar in most olympic sports. Predicted to finish fourth in baseball this year. So I don't think there is room for bragging. We are all disappointed to be relegated to this conference, but I don't see the bragging rights here. UConn was more competitive in the BE than it is in the AAC. Maybe it is a mental block. I am not sure. We all want out, but I don't think we need to denigrate our current brethren. We keep talking about pedigree. Yet it seems to me that programs like KY, Duke, Kansas, are always in the mix. UConn sometimes flirts with the bubble. I don't understand.
They played one season in basketball and won the national championship. Mediocre. Mediocre.
They won the women's basketball national championship too.
And a national championship in an olympic sport that the AAC doesn't sponsor.
Yeah no bragging rights. They lost a couple of regular season basketball games.
