Updates: UConn and conference realignment

There’s nothing new (technically) on the conference realignment front, but there are quite a few rumors floating around on the web. The UConn camp has been tight-lipped about this whole thing.

Check the links below from Monday:

*16 ACC teams unlikely — CBSSports.com’s Jeremy Fowler

Story highlights: “A prominent official from an ACC school told me Louisville and UConn both have something to offer but stressed academics will matter to presidents. This favors UConn, widely considered a top-75 national university. The Hartford area also is larger than Louisville’s, but the Cardinals have a strong football/basketball product and aggressive AD Tom Jurich.”

*Big Ten expansion a money game — Crain’s Detroit Business

Story highlights: The Big Ten Conference may not be done expanding, and that’s OK with University of Michigan Athletic Director David Brandon. “I think there could be further expansion in a number of conferences,” he said.
