UConn, You're Not in the Big East Anymore

If it wasn't already obvious that UConn was in a completely different world than what it used to occupy in the Big East, well, that point was drilled home like a TaShawn Thomas dunk on Tuesday night.

Two games deep in the heart of Texas? A conference-opening game before a one-third filled arena? What's going on here, and why exactly is UConn stuck in this league, with no immediate escape to the ACC or Big Ten on the horizon?

The Huskies have some problems, no doubt, and we'll delve into those in the coming days. But their conference affiliation could be as big as any for the long-term success of this program.

We did have an alternative when conference re-alignment started. Drop the football to FCS and stay in the BE. But the powers to be chose the path of fielding a non competative football team every year over playing championship basketball. Unless there is some back-room deal in place for us to get into the ACC or B1G this will go down as the death of Uconn basketball as we used to know and love. We should of stuck to what we do well!

That's certainly possible, Pete. I still say that, somehow, UConn gets an ACC invite.
