Hi Guest,

Just a note to point out our TBP-initiated drive to raise funds for the Bulls Football IPF - doing our share, and more.  Please consider donating at least $23 to the effort, and passing on to others as well.  You can read more about the project at the link above.

Go Bulls!

Thank you,

Report: Uconn leaving for Big East

Recommended Posts

Not sure I have ever heard of the source website but it seems to be picking up steam.

They can move football to Conference USA or Sun Belt

No reason to keep it in the aac. 

UConn’s value is in hoops name recognition.  Only.

I saw another tweet suggesting they might go independent for football.

According to a breaking report I just saw on ESPN.  Hasn't been, but expecting, approval by the Board of Trustees (or whatever they are called up there) to join the Big East.  Who would be happier than Jose Fernandez?  But our football team loses a gimme if they dissolve the football team.  Edit: Doesn't appear dissolution is in the cards but staying in AAC as football only is not going to happen.

This is good for them and not surprising, not the end of the world for the AAC or USF either.  Fu**}# them  as well, we would bolt this sh$$ show of a conference too if given the opportunity.

La Tech, heh, heh, heh.  

Where would the WBB conference tournament move to?  Since we host Baseball - you know the year we make the tournament - maybe UCF (unless they stay in the MBB rotation) or one of the Texas schools?  Tulsa is kind of out on their own.  New Orleans would be fun.
