UConn Basketball now has been given 2 years probation by the NCAA for violations that occurred under Ollie. Apparently, they're not good at cheating either.

I'm guessing Ollie's wrongful termination suit is toast... I wonder if UConn can walk away from arbitration, now?

Only because having to play in the AAC brought their cheat game down.

James Madison wants to move up to FBS and take Uconn’s place.

Interesting campus; Interstate 81 goes right through the middle of the campus (just up the road from me- go right through it when I have driven to Washington). You can see the stadium on the East side of the Interstate.

JMU is not the worst idea I’ve heard. It doesn’t come with a lot of those hybrid arrangements that a BYU would and all their don’t play on Sunday baggage. And JMU would actually want to be there, unlike a lot of the other “do I have to?” candidates. We’ll see.

I don't know why they would be any better than a CUSA or Sun Belt team

JMU is not a serious candidate. Like many schools in their shoes, there is no downside to throwing their hats in the ring. But before we would look to FCS there are several more capable FBS programs we would look at adding. Even within Virginia, ODU is in a better location and is already making the investments to improve their program. They, and any CUSA team, would gladly join the AAC, no questions asked.

By the way, while BYU seems unlikely, too much is being made of the Sunday issue. They would only join for football which makes not playing on Sunday irrelevant. The real baggage comes from them demanding a different payout structure because they think they bring more to the table than they actually do. That's why they didnt join the AAC back in 2013.

With our new media deal, unless there is a required compensation change, I guess I don't see the point of adding anyone right now (other than football scheduling gymnastics).

If that happens as a result of these ridiculous violations, Ollie needs new lawyers.
