If Im the Big East, I put the squeeze on Yukon in making them join, they have all the leverage. Have them sign some kind of absurd buyout agreement otherwise youre just stetting yourself up to be left at the altar again.

From Yukons perspective, I would almost ask that the BE mandate that they drop FB to 1AA as a condition of joining. At least that way, CT can pass the blame elsewhere (not out decision to drop) and finally get out of the disaster that the FB program has become. I think deep down they know that they cant survive as IND and dropping to 1AA is probably more attractive than joining CUSA or the MAC (at least they can play regional rivals like URI/Nova/Ivy's which are similar talent level). At this point, the only reason to keep FB and continue to lose millions each year is the hope of a P5 invite, which is exactly what the BE must guard against if they're going to throw them this lifeline.

My sense is there are folks in the AAC who view this as a chance to upgrade from UConn.

I would think FIU (enrollment 53,000) would be a top target.

While I see no real clear path forward until maybe something breaking loose in 2025. IMO, UConn is in slightly better shape than UMass and NMSU. Better basketball means there will be some cache to playing them. Sure, they will get pasted once or twice a season by an SEC school in a buy game and 4 or 5 no names. But the schedule will probably wind up more intriguing to fans and with the bowl games going up again will have a shot for a post-season. No chance in a conference where everyone except Tulane has a stronger commitment to football.

As far as AAC, I look at Army first, but they'll say no. Then I try UAB despite their recent issues. Actual fanbase in a real market and competitive at basketball. The FI/AU inflate their size with online attendance. And the Miami market is much more fair weather.

As a Villanova basketball season ticket holder, I have no objection to UConn returning to the Big East. I'd much rather see them play over Creighton, Butler or Xavier any day.

Is there another program in the country where the rowing donations outpace the donations of an FBS football program by almost 2:1?

Dartmouth would be FCS, but yes, every Ivy League school and Georgetown could possibly have rowing donations that outpace football.

The funny part is that UConn only sponsors women's rowing, not men's (not being sexist, but men's programs are liable to have higher donations).

It's unlikely at the FBS level - the only schools that sponsor both FBS football and men's rowing are: Stanford, Washington, Cal, Oregon State, Wisconsin, Syracuse, Navy, Temple. Maybe Temple? Rutgers might have been close back in the day before they cut the men's rowing program.

Almost all schools sponsor only women's crew and give scholarships. Thank the football team.

jarmond gets mentioned as an outside the box candidate by the athletic:

The Outside-the-Box Hires (Martin Jarmond, John Wildhack, Bernadette McGlade, Ben Tario)

Recently hired at UCLA, Jarmond became the first Black AD with the Bruins and at Boston College, which he led for three years after spending more than a decade in the Big Ten. He has been a hit everywhere he has been, and he learned the business under the influential Gene Smith. Would age and experience work against him? He’ll be only 41 in November and is entering just his fourth year as the head of a department.

What could work in Jarmond’s favor — along with Wildhack’s — is the fact that Syracuse chancellor Kent Syverud is the chair of the ACC’s board of directors. Syverud interviewed Jarmond for the Orange AD job in 2015 that ended up going to Mark Coyle. When Coyle left for Minnesota less than a year later, Syverud hired Wildhack, who, as a former executive vice president of programming and production for ESPN, was considered as outside-the-box as it gets back in 2016.

GOR expire in 26/27 along with the TV deal. Will be interesting to see if the ACC uses this moment (hiring a new AD) to extend the GOR beyond the deal to ensure stability of the conference post-TV deals. Could otherwise be a bunch of uncertainty in the coming years as these deals expire and cable fixed fees are no longer a thing. B12 instability may also cause another round of expansion.

You are off by a year, but otherwise correct. The GOR was extended with the extension of the ESPN deal (I completely forgot).
