Huuuuuuuuuump Daaaaaaaaay! This has been out there for a few weeks, but it looks like it is really starting to pick up steam. Wichita State looks all but set to leave the MVC for the AAC, kicking off what could be a fresh round of conference realignment.

UConn fans are particularly just thrilled at this revelation.

Wouldn’t it just be grand if Wichita State made the move, Gregg Marshall took a better job, and then UConn bolted for the Big East. You go, Mike Aresco!
