Like others have said, I only want them if they drop DI football.

Why? Three other BE schools make it work at various levels.

None of those three were ever at the FBS level or have a taxpayer funded stadium that cost over $90 million.
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

If they joined they would make less money per year and get less exposure than they do now with the espn deal
How would UConn get less exposure? The Big East gets 19 games on OTA Fox & 4 games on OTA CBS. Most of any league. Also, many games in the AAC are going to ESPN+. Most on are ESPNU. FS1 is in 20 million more homes than ESPNU.
If winning weren't important nobody would keep score.

What happens in the BET with 11 teams? 

This only makes sense to “UCONN” basketball fans.

Only DePaul cares about that.  Someone wake them up to get their opinion.

Would be 20 game BE schedule.  While others are going to a 20 game unbalanced schedule soon, the BE would still have a round robin where all play each team home and home.  11 teams actually makes sense.  Now, as to an 11th team........?

That's really the issue.  If you have FBS football, you really have to be all in on that.  That has to be what drives your conference membership because it is too much of an investment.

And I doubt they drop to FCS.

Zags will never happen.  They should go to the mountain west.  St Mary's has an awesome rugby program, and that is about it.

Gonzaga was invited and turned them down. They have to consider more than just basketball and it would have had a detrimental effect on their athletic programs overall. They would be the smallest MWC school, the lowest funded and have the smallest basketball facility. Stay in the WCC and they have a guaranteed NCAA tourney bid every year.

SMC hoops will be good as long as Bennett is around (top 20 in pre-season polls) and he's not leaving SMC until he retires. Men's Soccer has become strong for them too. Unfortunately, the president vetoed a new hoops facility so they're stuck in a glorified high school gym for the foreseeable future.

Wow. I was completely wrong about that. Glad for the BE. UConn was by far the best option for expansion. Makes the conference stronger for sure.

Well...not the best, 2nd best. The Zags would have been the best, but obviously that wasn't workable.
