RE: UConn to Big East?
There was never a doubt in my mind that the Big East schools have wanted UCONN all along, despite the naysayers on that HolyLand board.

Rothstein has legit sources. Aresco should be on the phone with AAC Presidents and Wichita as we speak.

UConn-Army FB would be decent, would secure the long term future of the MAC definitely.

The story sounds like it has legs, especially if the one source is reliable.

Quote:The Big East and UConn have had recent discussions about the Huskies joining the conference, multiple sources told FanRag Sports.

FanRag Sports reported last week that UConn had looked into joining the conference and one source confirmed on Wednesday that the Big East would take the Huskies in all sports.

Would the AAC adjust and keep UConn FB? If not, would they go for AFA since they were willing at one point in the past?

I don't know about this. Big East members and fans are all on the same page. Things are good. Why bring in a bunch of disgruntled UConn football fans into the equation.

It has some legs but there are a couple of considerations on UConn's side. Do they want to give up any hopes of moving to the ACC or another P5 conference if an invite becomes available? As I posted in another thread, I would expect the Big East to demand a long-term commitment from UConn, taking their membership past the expiration of the Big 12 GOR -- the next likely time for P5 shuffling and more re-alignment.

The downside for UConn is that Syracuse isn't in the Big East anymore.

UConn recruits at a MAC level(Football) so that is a good fit.

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