UCONN is not AAU
UCONN has a poor football program
UCONN does not have a great market.

You could argue UConn has a market that stretches from New Jersey to Boston. I'd say that's a solid market. Even if exaggerated, they have all of Connecticut and an inroads to NYC, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. You can dock many things but they have a solid market.

Yes ... I'd flip the question and ask, how much did the Lady Vols help the SEC in their best years, and the answer would be ... well, they helped Tennessee a bit, but not really anybody else.

And by a bit, we are talking maybe 1 million in the few years they could turn a profit. The truth is as I stated before, it only exists because of Title IX and it's a money loser for almost everyone.

You're doing it all wrong. Your post needs to be in haiku form, like the OP.

Markets don't matter. Fans matter. Random people living in an arbitrarily-defined geographic area doesn't create value.

A population of fans willing to pay for content and watch content (and therefore advertisements) creates value.

I'll let UConn supporters/haters fight over whether or not UConn WBB has that kind of fan pull. I don't personally know a soul who cares about NCAA WBB, but if anybody does care, it would be UConn fans.

RE: HOW MUCH DOES UCONN WBB PROGRAM HELP A CONF
I understood the question to be in the world of NCAA WBB. WBB obviously doesn't help a school get into a conference, and it abviously doesn't make enough money to help anybody's athletic department.

But the question, to me, is whether or not UConn WBB helps the other WBB programs in their conference. On one hand, getting blown out by 50 hurts. On the other hand, having a name as big as UConn's on the schedule has to help w/ recruiting.

UConn has a good market. They need to get MBB going again, and football back to decent.

UConn women's basketball has a solid market. Their limit is the amount of interest in women's basketball. But they have an entire state captive and send graduates all over New England, New York and New Jersey.
