Just what we need, another blue color scheme.  Why not add SLU and Memphis while were at it.  This is why we need Dayton.

Just read through the AAC general forums regarding this topic and it is laugh out loud funny. It would be something akin to Big East fans comparing the conference to the ACC. There simply is no question which conference is better. But don't tell AAC fans (including ECU and TULANE LMAO), surely their conference is much better than the Big East, and UCONN will regret this decision.

And the THIRD dog mascot. The conference needs more mascot diversity. Flyers would have been a much better choice.

I can see why Calhoun and Geno never got along. Geno very arrogant.

I dont follow women's basketball at all, but isn't the Big East pretty much a legit mid major in women's basketball? I could see why he wouldn't be that excited. 
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

Whatever it is, it is a huge improvement from the AAC.

at least it's not a bulldog. It could have been another bird though:

Birds:
MU - Golden Eagle
SJU - Thurnderbird (but not nickname)
Creighton - Blue Jay

Dogs;
Butler - Bulldog
Gtown - Bulldog (but not nickname)
UConn - Albino Husky

Travesties:
DePaul - Demon like thing

Things people see in their nightmares:
Providence - something from Eyes Wide Shut
Seton Hall - Pirate
Xavier - Musketeer (and Blue Blob. Maybe we should have kept Bleautaux around)
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

UConn's exit fee to leave the Big East is $30 million for its first six years. Then $15 million until year 10. Then $10 million after that.

Imagine being in a conference that’s so bad that you pay $10MM to not be in it anymore, then agree to pay three times that to be able to leave the conference that you’re paying another $3.5MM to join a year before you can even compete in it.

Think Val had some leverage??

Unless the other info is wrong, I believe this is incorrect information that has been reported on Twitter.

There is a lengthy epistle about how much damage they could do by leaving in the country and these are the penalty schedule fees for leaving our league in the future . They are also prohibited from soliciting Power 5 football conferences.

Yes. At its best it was us and Depaul and we lost our coach and like half the team so it's Depaul's conference next year till UConn joins.

Actually, I'm pretty sure it's correct.  Here's the contract.  See Section 2(d).

It'll be interesting to see how easily UConn extracts itself from the AAC.  Apparently they must give the AAC 27 months notice.  I'm guessing that the AAC will want more money to release UConn earlier than that, and I'm guessing that UConn will probably pay it.  In the contract with the Big East, if UConn can't negotiate an early release from the AAC, they won't actually start with the Big East until July 1, 2022.  (See Section 3(g).)

They didn't pay Kevin Ollie, why would they pay the AAC?

FYI, that prohibition is only up to the "Entrance Date".
