RE: UConn to Big East?
What would be really interesting is if UCONN, CINCY, MEM, & Temple all went to BE in BBall and Indy in FB. Schedule each other and other indies. No lost revenue in media deals and with all programs in major metro areas, it would likely mean a significant bump in revenue with selling of their own media rights. Could potentially double current payouts.
Schedule agreements in FB w BYU and others would be great.
BE becomes potentially the #1/2 basketball conference again

Cincy should be P5 and no way they go with that plan.

Also, how much is the AAC's exit fee?

The AAC requires 27 months of notice from a school to leave the conference and has a $10 million dollar exit fee.

so 27 months would be if they do it by end of March good for July of 2019. Far more likely that it'll wind up being July of 2018.

I just don't see them wanting to add a state school with football when they are all private and none have FBS football, and only one of the two with football even has scholarships.

Notre Dame football is 0-1 vs UCONN. Take that nugget to the bank!

While I didn't support the initial post you responded to, yours is just as much of an outlier.

The Big East Conference said it hasn’t had any discussions with UConn about the school re-joining the Big East Conference.
“There haven’t been any discussions,” Big East spokesman John Paquette told ZAGSBLOG on Wednesday morning.

I would love to see a bunch of new independent football programs.

Back to the Future! Welcome.

One league source also told ZAGSBLOG the two sides have had talks.

Seems like a whole lot of smoke here.
