If we got an ACC invite, we'd get more titles
Oh it’s definitely getting better and isn’t that bad of a conference. UConn just doesn’t fit this group of teams.Last year you would have included USF, and a couple years before that, UCF, but look how much those teams have improved. The AAC has solid teams and is on the upswing, in my opinion.
National champions in consecutive years? With Florida being the only men's hoop team to repeat in the last 25 years and Bama and maybe Nebraska the last repeat gridiron national champions, which school? Great to be enthusiastic ...I'd love an ACC invite but I really don't see how being the second team to repeat in the last 25 years isn't the pick.
Can you assure me that the current ACC will even be around in 10 years? 20 years? This business model is destined for failure and the future is bleak even for the have nots(which we would be) of the ACC. Hell, give me the ship. You have that forever. What you won't have is the current structure and I am not sure where UConn lands regardless of the conference they play in now.People choosing 2 championships because money magically grows on trees and don’t care about the long term viability of the school. That’s pretty sad, I guess that’s how we got to this point. I guess this is why we have a crowd that wants us to move to the big east...
Our incoming president's remarks concerning the football program have thrown some ice water on that nonsense. Last year during an interview, NBE commish Val Ackerman practically said she'd have to see a wrecking ball destroying P&W Stadium before UCONN would be considered for admission to her conference.Where is the "return to the Big East and live out everyone's fantasy by playing DePaul, Creighton, Butler, and Seton Hall in conference" option?
