Could've... Should've... Would've...

Didn't.

Deal with it. It is what it is.

Looks like Big12 made the correct decision by not taking Louisville.

I will also say this... If UL somehow does lose its ACC membership, the obvious add is NOT UConn, but Cincinnati. Keeps the Midwest bridge and footprint open, does not duplicate markets (in the NE) and has a solid BB tradition and a better current BB program.

Unfortunately a quarter of the conference faces similar issues...the article mentioned Miami and even the Hurricanes are involved with the FBI Probe-(Recruit Nassir Little...apparent bidding way for 150K with Arizona)

This is a pet peeve of mine but UConn does not duplicate markets. Maybe Hartford/New Haven isn't a big enough market for the ACC to want UConn. But its not like there is a rabid BC or Syracuse fan base in Connecticut.

Oh, I agree and I think that there's less than a "slim to none" chance of UL losing their membership. I'm just saying "IF" they somehow did, I think UC is a more logical addition.

UC should be in a P5 league regardless....as for Louisville I just want a clean break from the old....this is embarrassing...glad Pitino is gone...don't want Jurich back...would not mind if Petrino takes a "SEC job" and start all over
