The division of opinion on this topic is interesting.

My vote (if I had one) is that I would be thrilled to have UConn and Cincy back in the BE. It would add one team each to the east and midwest divisions, and they are both solid basketball programs with BE history (obviously more so for UConn). Obviously there would have to be some significant provision to prevent football-based conference jumping, we're all done with that. But assuming that hurdle could be resolved, I think it would be great for the conference.

None of which means that I do not absolutely positively hate UConn and its fans. But that shouldn't have anything to do with a good business decision for the league.

I'm with you. Anything we can do to keep the profile of the league elite, with minimal risk, I'm for it. I'm been very happy we've been able to maintain an RPI better than most of the Big 5 since we broke away, and I'd like to see it stay that way.

I'll put it this way. I'd love uconn back, but not just to park basketball. We aren't a holdover league. That's what Uconn wants. That doesn't jive with me. Our members need to be invested in our conference. That unfortunately will be unlikely with uconn who is still looking only at football.

Would I love uconn here? Certainly. But only with full investment in all sports, except football of course. Huge penalty to leave etc. not in its current form. We don't gain much as is.

I agree about the other sports and am surprised by the article saying only football while previously they were discussing bringing everything but football.

With some $ caveats, I see taking them back as a no-brainer.

The "new" Big East is a great league
While I miss the old rivalries, Xavier, Creighton and Butler have been great additions
To Yukon and the others that left us "flat", I say "good riddance"
You ran out on us for what you thought were greener pastures; hope you enjoy them
You're not welcome here anymore
