* Pendergast has been in transition mode until two days ago, and still isn't officially 'the guy' as AD.
* Herbst was busy preparing to get inaugurated this week.
* Big Friday-night football game on the tube, with the hoops Nat'l Champs being honored.
* The big news dropped about mid-third quarter of the game.

Pitt, 'Cuse and the ACC knew just how to play it.

Herbst is obviously a sharp lady and a savvy leader - I have a feeling she'll come through with a good solution for the school. Pendergast will keep the heavy hitters on board as well. But I'm convinced that they didn't see any of this coming at all...

Not a surprise- a remember 2 weeks ago wondering why the TCU athletic director was worried about the Big East.

None of us knew about Pitt/SU so because we do not know what is going on with us it will turn out good for us. We can only hope. Be confident - but this does suck.

There's nothing new under the sun here.

UConn and CT are a small state. A solid and rabid fanbase but small just the same.

Obectively there are 10 teams ahead of UConn in the expansion sweepstakes

If there are only 8 slots it gets ugly.

If there are only 10 slots and the ACC stops at 14 it gets ugly.

12 slots and UConn has a fighting chance.
