    Dom, I’m very concerned about the reported package deal with NBC Sports. I think we are in very bad situation. Losing anywhere between 2 to 11 million a year is totally unacceptable. Also the collateral damage to our athletics in recruiting and perception will be devastating. I believe our super star AD and school President better come up with some positive answers and solutions before our basketball and football programs arrive DOA.

      Where are we losing $11M a year? Our contract currently gives us $3M a year, far below the real conferences. The new contract is suppose to be under $2M year.

      Way to go UCONN administration!!!

    Hip Hop Hood, I believe the original offer to the Big East from ESPN that was turned down would have averaged at least 13M for each school.

      Thanks for the clarification.

      Every single one of the idiots who turned down the original contract needs to be fired!!!!!

    Hip Hop Hood, I went back to the archives for the original offer from espn and each school that is full-time for D1 football and basketball would have received 13.8 million and the basketball only schools 2.4-2.5 million. All I know now is that we are in a mess with this lousy new big east. Warde and Herbst better figure out something quick before both programs become marginalized. Can’t wait to see UConn/SMU rather than UConn/Syracuse!!
