Should Cincy join UConn in the Big East?
Seems like from a $$$ POV it could work. They could get the $4m from the Big East for T1 rights for all but football, go Indy in football for maybe $4m a year from ESPN, and sell the T3 for another million or two.

That beats the Aresco deal, no?

What about Memphis could they be accepted into the BE?

They have the FB stadium to be a serious player as an indy.

No, the Big East wouldn’t extend an invite, and it wouldn’t be feasible on the FB front.

Maybe, but lots of conferences have cross-town rivals. I think being in same conference would strengthen that.

BYU cares about football too. It's not like UC would be leaving the Big 10. They are currently a G5 school.

USF will half fill a football stadium before Cincinnati joins the Big East.

I don't know what X fans think, but they aren't the only school with a say.

Don't think the rest of the schools force their in-city rival into the conference over X's objections and blow up the round robin in the process. It's probably up to X.

X probably vetoes.

Also the FB only market might be tough. It’s a huge risk for what I would only consider to be a marginally small reward. If BYU who has a much larger Fanbase is only making 4-10 per year for FB in a time zone where ESPN was motivated to make sure they had inventory (remember pac was still potentially going to fox or Comcast entirely at the time) and I have my doubts that an eastern time zone team could make similar leverage with the ACC/B1G/B12/SEC/AAC all signed up with them.

No. Their football program has a pulse.

If a P5 conference looks to expand from the ranks of the G5, Cincinnati has a chance to move. They're not a slam dunk, but they have a chance. As long as they have a chance to move to a P5 conference, they need to stay where they are.

I think it is possible Cincy could create indy schedules equal to AAC schedules. There's nothing magical about the G5.

Yes, and we're on the upswing. There is a legit shot at winning the conference chip and getting the Cotton Bowl invite this year. That would do wonders for our profile not seen since the Brian Kelly era. Cincinnati has invested too much in facilities and the football program in general to not stay alive for a shot at a better conference. If that doesn't come after 2025 then check back on this...

Fair point. So what would X think? I am not sure they would oppose.

RE: Should Cincy join UConn in the Big East?
UC has no interest in going Indy in football. A suggested read for CFB enthusiasts is “Bearcats Rising” by Josh Katzowitz. It outlines the history of UC football, including the dark days as an Independent in the 70s, 80s and early 90s. As much as people crap on CUSA, getting into a conference was a game changer in terms of scheduling, recruiting, fan and corporate interest, etc. there are tons of quotes from former players, coaching and administrators detailing all of this.

When I said No, I meant to say they shouldn't move to the Big East. Cincinnati needs to stay in the AAC until a better opportunity comes about. UConn realized that their P5 dream was over, and moved to the BE. The P5 dream isn't over for Cincinnati.
