Yes, it’s the AAC’s fault that nobody wants to go see a bad UCONN team. Has nothing to do with Kevin Ollie being a terrible coach that has a team with literally three players with any offensive skill…all guards.
There is no joy in these words. The AAC has some nice people. The mere suggestion that UConn drop football is disrespectful to Randy Edsall, a good man for whom my son would play any day. And I have no idea about exit fees, bad blood or whether the Big East would take UConn back in the first place.
This much I do know, however: I’ve talked to a few donors in recent weeks who can’t take much more of this. They see the same thing as I do, the power structure failing to take the AAC seriously. UConn’s bad hires affecting the current product. And the need to begin some uncomfortable conversations.
