Geno's take on conference chaos

With the news that Syracuse and Pittsburgh would be leaving the Big East to join the Atlantic Coast Conference, I reached out to UConn women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma to get his thoughts on what UConn's future may look like.

Here is what he had to say in a pair of e-mails I received a short while ago.

"Everyone is trying really hard to find where the next move is and no one really knows," Auriemma said. "But the presidents are going to make this work and I'm sure (UConn) President (Susan) Herbst is fully engaged. She can be very persuasive."

A few years back, Auriemma wondered aloud about how long about what might happen in the Big East and especially with non-major college football programs in the Big East but he admits he never could see the craziness of the last few weeks, months and even years with Nebraska joining the Big 10, Syracuse going to the ACC, Texas Christian going to the Big East (although reports are that the Mountain West is trying to keep TCU from moving) and rumors of Texas and Oklahoma going to the Pac-10 or Pac-12 or maybe it will be the Pac-14 or Pac-16.

"All this stuff is really amazing when you think of it," Auriemma said. "There are moves being made that you just could never have imagined a few years ago."
