I'm not the one who keeps trying to put unworthy programs in P5 conferences like you.

Yet you keep posting scenarios that put them in a Power conference.

I understand your point now. Thanks for clarifying (NOT snark). But it's a case of "can't undo that mistake without looking bad".

Furthermore: to me athletic competition should whenever possible, be based on who's near you, NOT who will earn you the most $$.

So UConn should play the New England Patriots.

UCONN won’t be in a power conference not because of the school (state flagship with a big enrollment), market (#32 Hartford), or budget (over $90MM). They won’t get in due to a lack of commitment to FB. Plain and simple.

So why do you want UConn in a conference based in North Carolina? Greensboro isn't anywhere near Storrs.

I want UCONN (and ALL college athletics) in a regional conference so that the athletes can achieve what they're supposed to be achieving: getting an education.

You do realize most college athletes aren’t in college to play school right?

Yes unfortunately, I agree football players and men's hoopsters think they're gonna be pro stars. But I don't think that's a numerical majority of athletes at D-1 colleges. The system has deluded these guys into not having a plan B.

One thing you can be sure of, regardless of system, is that the SEC and the MAC are not going to have the same # of automatic bids to any expanded playoffs.

People always feel that way until they lose to one of those teams then all of a sudden a new wave of excuses come out. How about FBS schools are treated like FBS schools and we move on from the G5 doesn’t belong debate.

Lol this is dumb. UCONN football is trash and neither of those conferences would even want them so why would a P5?

You believe I would find it acceptable for you to relegate Rice to FCS? You, sir, are sadly mistaken.

Good day.

So putting UConn in a NC based conference fixes this how?

No but Storrs is comparatively in range to Chestnut Hill, Syracuse and Pittsburgh.

I've never heard the location of a conference's headquarters used as an argument against (or for) a team's inclusion.

There are arguments against UConn in the ACC, but that's not one of them.

Greensboro is the defacto center of the conference, with the actual geographical center being just north of it, but OK. I'll play your game.

So at best they'll have one regional game at home and one away every year. At worst they'll have a regional game either at home or away every year. In reality there's only one scenario where they have any regional games on the regular because nothing about the eight hour road trip to Pittsburgh is "regional". Might as well claim UVA is in the region as well since they are eight hours away too. 14 hours to Clemson. 16 to Georgia Tech. 19 to Florida State. 22 to Miami. What's regional about that?

Kaplony: UCONN is the ACC is the LEAST BAD home for them.

I think the fact I didn't grow up surrounded by ZD-1 caliber athletes colors my POV
