I'm the person who said we should play every year at Mohegan if we could get UConn to sign up and split the crowd 50/50. That makes sense. Doing this West Virginia thing and expanding it is a bad idea.
Also, how do we know that this is included for season ticket holders and students are free? That seems to have just been assumed with zero proof or confirmation.
So if the choices are a West Virginia caliber opponent at Mohegan or another 200+ RPI game at home would you opt for the home game?
This is a ridiculous question. Those are not the choices, as we've seen this year.
I'm not sure I understand. So is your assumption that they chose playing a neutral site game against West Virginia over playing a similar caliber team at the Ryan Center?
And let me add another piece to this. If playing this one game on a neutral court is the catalyst to cementing a multi-year true home and home series with West Virginia, does that make it worth it?
