No post-season ban and a loss of 1 scholarship not the end of the world.

But they did give a show cause to Ollie which may help UCONN wrt them firing him for cause and not paying him. He has a pending lawsuit to recoup his buyout.

Probably a good thing for UConn honestly. Now they most likely won't have to pay Ollie. Taking away one scholarship for a couple years is hardly a punishment. I don't believe the vacated wins includes the National Championship year.

It's coincidental.

They've been investigating this for some time and Ucon self-imposed sanctions back in January.

They should never have been allowed back.

You literally offer the worst takes on this board.
And that's saying something.

I know I was just breaking balls, let's see how the NCAA handles all these cheating blue bloods.....

Mike Aresco told reporters at American Conference Media Day in Newport that the league has no plans to expand following UConn's departure. Will stay at 11.

If the AAC doesn't think the current expansion candidates are worth it (VCU, Gonzaga, Dayton, St. Louis, Buffalo, etc), it just goes to show how little value those teams bring. I'm glad the Big East never settled for mediocre or risky (Gonzaga) additions.

I thought Army would have been a good fit. It would have given the conference a 12 team, two division set-up for football, and 10 schools for basketball. Army and Navy seem to have different philosophies on this subject.

“In English, that means Connecticut will share fully in Big East Conference revenue from Day One. Contrast that with Rutgers and Maryland, which joined the Big Ten in 2014 but won’t get full revenue sharing within the conference until 2021. That key difference shows how UConn’s reunion with the Big East is good for both sides, because the Huskies get to renew some of their old men’s basketball rivalries and to play the conference tournament in Madison Square Garden, as opposed to Fort Worth, Texas, where the AAC will play its men’s hoop tourney the next three years.”
