sorry uconn fans......

you can't pick which talking points do & do not matter in conference realignment.

it's like a restaurant owner saying "well besides the bad food, the bad service, and my high prices......explain to me how my restaurant is not good"

Except the OP (who decided on the talking points) is an Illinois fan... 01-wingedeagle

You do love to troll. Let me know when Syracuse wins something besides conference realignment.

like i said

you cant have a legitimate realignment discussion involving the b10 and not talk about academics. anyone trying to argue otherwise is a troll.

Except the post we are laughing at you for never mentioned academics...

I love how you throw out the "T" word every time your back is against the wall.

i love how you guys throw out the T word anytime that anyone says anything that goes against your "uconn is a major school that power conferences are dying to have" mentality.

washington st. is more likely to join the b10 than uconn

[split] B1G Northeast Corridor better fit
The B10 has zero interest in BC. That school has no impact in the Boston market and a tiny stadium.

UConn needs to get the AAU status done and they would be very compelling.

Nonsense.

Do you live in Boston? Have you spent time in Boston? Or is your opinion based on what people tell you. BC does have an impact in Boston. BC sits in the 7th largest media market and gets very good ratings and has an impact in Boston: See below:

Or this:

Tiny stadium? Its at 44.5K. (Bigger than Uconn's stadium, BTW).

Funny how a Tulane fan would be knocking the size of anyone's stadium.

Oh, and finally, BC has no interest in joining the BiG.

My mother and two best friends went to BC. My family still has season tics. I grew up in boston and lived in newton for 6 years. BC matters very little, you are burying your head in the sand. The B10 has no interest in BC, hell the aac membership would prob trade Uconn for BC. UConn puts more actual butt sin the seats despite playing a far worse schedule. The moment they get a B10 invite they will expand. The B10 has very little presence in Boston, unlike NYC.
What does my allegiance to Tulane have to do with anything, what a cheap simpleton response. Grow up.

Ya, it just shows a lack of depth. It's as if these people actually think they made a tangible difference on the field/court for their school. The interent is the gift that keeps on giving.

Oh, and the fact that your #1 newspaper has to write stories trying to argue/defend that college sports matter in Boston is proof positive that there is an issue. As if those type of articles are written in any B10 city/area. You can get tickets to any BC event no problem. Even when Ryan was there, tickets were easy to come by.

This would improve the conference in both basketball and football along with bringing them into markets passionate about a variety of sports. Not to mention they contiguous with current member states.

And before Uconn fans start crying here is why I say this. Uconn adds a lot of value in basketball however, their football would be at best a joke in the conference. College football is probably never going to be popular in New York. If their goal is to become New York's new Big East in college basketball they can do that with basketball only additions.

It would be a absolute home run for the Big Ten if they could land Missouri, Kansas, St Johns, and Villanova.

That's fine to not include UCONN, but don't bring up the BS "joke" comment when the B1G already has Indiana, Illinois, Rutgers, and Purdue. A recent bad hire set the program back to the Dark Ages. UCONN will be back though.

As for St Johns and Villanova, I don't think they have the NY presence or program strength that you think they do (especially not St Johns).

Interesting post...you knock BC as having a "tiny stadium"...yet....BC's stadium is about one-third larger than Tulane's new stadium. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yulman_Stadium

Thats's why I made the mention of you being a Tulane fan. Then you get snippy that I point that out? Get a clue!

So, your experience with Boston/BC is that your mother and friends went to BC sometime in the past and you spent part of your childhood in the Boston area. That sums up your Boston experience? How often have you been there in the last decade, or two decades? How many times have you been to a BC game?

I attached a link to the actual TV numbers showing BC's television appeal......you offer nothing but an opinion. (BTW, take a look at where BC and Uconn sit in the ratings in that article.)

I gave you a link to a column from the most experienced sports reporter in Boston - an article chock full with facts and statisitcs. You offer nothing but an opinion.

Uconn puts more buts in the seats than BC? Not according to the NCAA. Check their stats for the 2 years and even these numbers may be high based what has recently been reported in the CT media:

http://touch.courant.com/#section/-1/art...-80101827/

You make the assumption that Uconn would expand their stadium if they got a BiG invite. Maybe they would. But you just assume that BC (if they wanted a BiG invitation), would not expand their stadium as well if such an invite was secured? On what basis do you make that assumption?

This is not a knock on Uconn at all. Just refuting the unsupported nonsense that you have posted.

I am sorry, but when you make statements that are refuted by FACTS; and when presented with the facts you double down on the statements, you look foolish.

Ok pal, let me make things clear to you, Tulane FBall has been a joke for decades and are thrilled to be in the dam AAC, so who the F cares about the stadium. Oh and we played in the Dome the last 30 years, which you ignore. I am also a fan of Penn State, does my opinion matter now. You are talking about BC to the B10 and you don't get that Alumni is tiny and the B10 is interested in markets and connections to their alumni, BC adds neither. You don't get how attendance numbers work and how inflated they are, oh I went to two BC FBall games last year. No one was at the games and the stands empty at half time. The athletic environment is simply brutal, great school but if they were located anywhere else then they would probably be in the AAC or worse. I am 34 and spent 29 years of my life in Boston and spent countless weekends at BC. I know tons of BC athletes as my buddies played baseball there and I played college ball at UMass so know tons of players. I travel to Boston at least 4-5 times a year for business/family. Should I continue?

I have literally never heard one person argue that BC has a tangible impact on the Boston market. UConn is growing in everything and wants it. BC has been awful and are a drain on the AAC currently. They would be a far worse add than even Rutgers and right now most B10 fans are not happy with that add. The idea of BC to the B10 is just simply crazy talk, I don;t understand how anyone (who was unbiased) can see it otherwise.
