Looking at those teams again, it's not a sexy looking conference at all. I'm not saying the A10 is either, but I still think CU would be better served by remaining. I'm sure we'll know in the next month or so.
Interesting timing. Met with a Temple alum who was very active in the Booster club. When I told him of this rumor on Friday he was surprised. Said this was the first time he heard of it. Said if UCONN left that Army would most likely be a candidate for football only. Football is King. $$$. Army has a national reputation and better football draw especially replacing UCONN.

I’m an Army football season ticket holder, and I believe there is not much appetite to join a conference right now. Especially not the same one as Navy, which would really throw the scheduling of the Army-Navy game into disarray.
Army already gets all its home games on CBS Sports Network, coupled with the Navy game being on CBS. They seem content with playing a softer schedule right now. The only upside to a Conference for them right now would be the security of a bowl tie-in every year, but the last couple years they’ve found their way into a bowl, even without a tie in at season’s beginning.
