Honestly - UConn needed non alum fans to fill the Rent during 1.0. The reality is that the alums of the flagship are not great fans/supporters of the school and the program especially during down periods. My opinion based on a few data points - horrible endowment compared to other flagships, number of high $$ donors compared to other flagships, unsold, very discounted young alum season tickets. Feels like many of us non-alums bleed national flag blue and white more than many alums..
