Q: Living in Ohio I would love to see UConn come to the big ten rather the ACC. The big ten offer more money making opportunity’s and maybe develope an rivalry with Penn. St. The Acc offers a great bball conference and many familiar faces to continue play. Just for fun Dez Which conference appeals to you the most and why? Raymond Martineau, Steubenville, OH
A: Obviously I have no skin in the game but I’ll hit this for fun: If I were a UConn fan – which I’m not – but if I were I’d be a little leery about the ACC. I’m thinking teams want to leave and are going to leave. Will it truly be what the ACC was? Ideally, yes, if I were a UConn fan, which I’m not but if I were I’d want – want – to be in the Big Ten for academic, athletic and of course financial reasons. If I were a UConn fan, which I’m not and I’m just saying, if I were, I really would put my faith in the President and athletic director and all the players involved at UConn to put UConn in the best possible position . If its right where it is, in the Big East, so be it. Make the best of it. As a fan, truthfully, I just want my team to win and I’m going to support my team no matter where it is – but that’s just me Ray…You know all of this could have been great for both the Big East and ACC if they would have taken my advice and merged the conferences before all this stuff started happening, lol. I’m kidding but only a little. I just didnt see many negatives in it.
