The Big 12 is not expanding, what’s a Husky to do?

Happy Tuesday, ‘Nova Nation! ICYMI it yesterday afternoon/evening, the Big 12 is officially not expanding. Not really a surprise when news broke late over the weekend that ESPN/Fox were willing to pay them NOT to expand.

What's that mean for UConn? Probably nothing, although it is notable because the Big East is apparently open to a reunion. One wonders if the Huskies eventually give up the Power 5 pipe dream (for now) and try to figure out a way to get their basketball program onto a higher platform.

And now, the "news."
