A statement from UConn president


UConn just released a statement from President Susan Herbst:

“The past several days have magnified the period of instability that exists today in the world of college athletics. I want to say thank you to all of our loyal supporters and fans of UConn and our athletic programs for their patience during this time.

“Please know that we will always do what is in the best interests for the University of Connecticut.

“We remain committed to our ideals and principals in intercollegiate athletics and will continue to achieve excellence academically and athletically.”

    They better knock down the door to the ACC while it is still unlocked….otherwise there will be no chance to “improve” our situation and we will be stuck picking up the pieces of a non-geographically placed Big East/Big 12, whatever is left. Arjona and Monteith needed to go !

    Basically she’s saying, “Good Bye Big East, we want stability and teams that are close regionally, not West Virginia. We want the Atlantic Coast Conference and our rivals Boston College, Syracuse, and Pittsburgh.”

    ACC might expand to 16 and I’m sure would love UConn. If the ACC can’t get the 16th team then UConn is stuck. UConn needs to call Rutgers and make a deal with them to leave the Big East for the Atlantic Coast Conference. That’s the only way in is as a pair like Syracuse and Pitt did.
