Aman the former publisher of Uconn Rivals breaks down and echos my CR thoughts from a few years ago and the last piece needed ( a bowl tie in ) after leaving the conference that continues to implode.
( the AAC, which soon should really be called C-USA 2.0 ).

It also proves that for Uconn the only sane move in the current state of CR was to collect their final shares of $100+ mil in exit fees (split with Cincy and USF) from the old Big East departures .....and then go Indy in FB like Army, Notre Dame, BYU (until more CR) , etc. . And back with the old rivals for all other sports in the new Big East.

Though it looks like Uconn FB (and Jim Mora) despite getting a national TV contract (CBS Sports) and a much better FB schedule as an Indy, than anything that could've happened in the AAC ( who ever will be in it next year ?), the MAC, C-USA, etc.......might have caught AD Benedict off guard in becoming bowl eligible so soon. Since even an Indy like :

UMass has a bowl rights agreement with ESPN Events

But here is a bowl situation break down and recap from Aman-
"
UConn got a pretty solid schedule together and the TV and buy-game money, (around $2 mil each from the yearly games like Clemson, Mich, Tenn and Ohio St, etc) .....the athletic department earned a similar annual bounty as it did in the American, maybe even more, certainly with higher upside.."

I guess the AD is working on that:
