The Big East has made it official: UCConn athletics will return to the conference. A few details of note:

• The year of entry is yet to be determined
• UConn's return comes during the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Big East in 1979
• There's a subtle repositioning from talking about "basketball focus." Big East Commisioner Val Ackerman said, "As a group of schools rooted in basketball pre-eminence, we can think of no better partner than UConn to join us in perpetuating the rivalries, traditions and successes that have made the Big East unlike any other conference in college basketball."
• Mentions of the Huskies men's and women's basketball programs in the Big East press release, as well as field hockey and women's lacrosse -- but no mention of football whatsoever
• The Big East press release closes on a curious note: "The Big East was represented in this matter by the law firm of Proskauer Rose. Allen & Company also provided advisory services to the conference."

That is actually pretty standard in transactions (like M&A). The banks and law firms push very hard for this inclusion - always the issuers decision but they push very hard for it.  Everyone loves publicity!

And from UConn's site:

https://today.uconn.edu/2019/06/uconn-returns-big-east-conference/#

Looks like the same exact release as the one on the Big East site. No mention of football.

I think you mean Siberian husky.

maybe I'm sheltered but I've never seen an all white Siberian Husky.  My wife wants one of the reddish ones as you don't see them as much. 

Maybe the designer of the UConn mascot created a Samoyed in error?
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

since football is not a member of the Big East Conference they wouldn't be able to or have any reason to mention it.

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

An article from the New Haven Register mentions a couple other details:

• UConn will not be eligible to receive financial awards (NCAA tournament units, etc.) accrued by other Big East schools prior to UConn's entrance
• The UConn football program is allowed to solicit an invitation to any conference except the Power Five (ACC, Big 10, Big 12, Pac-10, SEC)
• One fan (a 2015 alum) addressed the UConn board regarding the move, pleading that it reconsider its "short-sighted decision" to join the Big East and send the athletics program into "conference purgatory" -- adding that the move will "slit the throat" of the UConn football program

I think that throat was slit awhile ago.

and I did not see them mentioned. However, Field Hockey, which the Big East sponsors and UConn has remained a member, was.

This is disgusting and I for one cannot believe we are associating with such a dirty program:

Quote
Among the most serious allegations:

• Former men's basketball student managers attended preseason pickup games played by student-athletes. According to the NCAA, the pickup games became countable athletically related activity when the managers attended the games, kept statistics and regularly printed, copied and distributed them to coaches.

The NCAA alleged that Ollie was aware that the games took place and didn't report them to the compliance staff or ask if they were permissible. He also failed to monitor the managers' actions to ensure the games followed NCAA rules.

• The program's former video coordinator reviewed plays with and answered questions for student-athletes on and off the basketball court. The NCAA committee determined that the instruction exceeded the responsibilities of the video coordinator's position, causing him to become a countable coach and the program to exceed its countable coaches limit.

• Trainer Derek Hamilton, who was Ollie's friend and became a booster of the university, provided free on- and off-campus training sessions to three UConn players.

While at the off-campus training sessions, the trainer also provided free lodging, meals, transportation and access to a private gym. The committee noted that the impermissible benefits resulted in the student-athletes competing while ineligible.

Some programs cheat to win games; UConn cheated in order to erase its men's basketball association with the AAC.

Perhaps the first time the NCAA had a school begging them to find something, anything, and hit them with sanctions.

That's because Div 1 hockey is weird.  There's Big 10 hockey, but every other conference is hockey only.  UConn and Providence already both play in Hockey East with a bunch of other New England schools.  I think they're the only Big East schools that sponsor hockey.

and, D1 hockey is one of the few sports where a school does not need to be D1 in other sports to play at the D1 level. Union College, a D3 school in all other sports, became the smallest school to win a D1 national title in 2014.

I think they should've pulled out the old chestnut that their logo empowers rape culture.  That should have worked.
You actually have a degree from Marquette?

Quote from: muguru
No...and after reading many many psosts from people on this board that do...I have to say I'm MUCH better off, if this is the type of "intelligence" a degree from MU gets you. It sure is on full display I will say that.
