    UConn to the Big East

    Appears to seem UConn will be returning to the Big East in a year or so.

    Per 247sports.com, 14 true frosh enrolled at UConn for the current school year. Their website shows 22 true frosh. However, who knows if any of them can play football. There may be a boatload of walk-ons.

    Somebody asked me on Twitter if this was a record and no, it's not. Jacksonville U has 39 players in the portal. They opted to discontinue their football program.

    Correct. UConn played at IU this year.

    Good Riddance! What a mess of a program that is. They were so eager to leave, but when it all blows up on them financially, what will they say then? Probably that it was worth it...

    Apparently while paying to leave they are stuck playing 4 home and homes against AAC teams. Someone's head at UConn is going to roll over this mess. I really don't think they're going to save a ton of money here like they think unless they sack the whole program in 2020.

    Per the Hartford Courant, Exit fee will be 17M. AAC will withold 5.5M for the next two year in distributions and they will pay 1M to the AAC for 6 years.

    I just really have to wonder here. Will the NCAA allow UConn football players to transfer without penalty? Technically, they did not drop football, but in all practicality they did. If I'm a football player I'd have to feel betrayed and screwed over, and I'd want the **** out.
    I was thinking about that as my guess is half of the players, coaches, staff etc. are likely evaluating their situation. If it was me and i was a young player facing an uncertain schedule, et. al and i'm good enough to play elsewhere i'd probably get out before the practice starts and preserve my year regardless. I'm just not sure how many of those players are going to have D1 options of any note. They don't have a bumper crop of players unless some guys really upped their game. Football is a game of emotion and i'd be shocked if they do not take some dirty beatings this year in conference. Coaches i believe will use this as a motivating factor to fire their team's up. I almost feel bad for their fball team as i seriously doubt they saw this coming this quickly, and i'm sure they weren't sold on not being in a conference.They got hung out to dry big time, and their not a team who is well equipped talent wise to handle a gauntlet.
