Q: With all of this realignment talk going on I have two questions to address. First off, why doesn’t the Big East look into a scheduling agreement with the Big Ten like the Big Ten had in place with the PAC 12? Would provide great exposure and it would be a way for us to stay at the top tier. Second, if we get left out of the ACC (again) do you think this is the wakeup call this school/state would need to start seriously investing into the football team? I know The Rent is a major upgrade from Memorial and Burton is new, but they’re nowhere near top facilities, therefore we are nowhere near top results on the field. The Rent’s contract is up in 2021, could we be Storrs bound? Thanks. Drew, Charlotte, NC
A: Hey Drew. I like the first idea but not sure if it’s a better idea than just being in a better, more stable situation where you’re not getting picked over all the time. Also, what conference would want to do that with the Big East? As for the second question, if you’re ever up in Storrs try to take a tour of the place. I’m pretty sure you’ll be impressed by the facilities, which Drew, are among the best in the nation, easily among the top 25. Thanks.
