It was probably Cowens idea for UConn to bolt from our conference....
While Cowen was building Yulman and was still Tulane’s president UCONN had the idea to leave the AAC. It’s been rumored of them wanting to leave in the news for years from at least 2014.
The UConn administration & fan base were completely devasted when passed over by Louisville for entrance into the ACC. They thought they were "better" than the AAC.
I had conversations with many UConn fans that included, "who is Tulane, do they play football?"
Let's give them a good send off!
BTW: We need to admit a program from the Mid Atlantic if we choose to go forward with two divisions..
My choice would be Old Dominion. Bobby Wilder & staff will be fired at the end of this season. ODU has the single greatest upside to replace UConn.
Large active fan base, Underserved media market. Legendary recruiting region.
