Pretty interesting day in New York

On any other Big East media day, UConn not being the pick to win the conference title for just the second time since 1994 would be dominating the headlines. Certainly that was the subject of my main story off today's festivities.

However, when Geno Auriemma lowered the boom on Notre Dame and pretty much saying the Fighting Irish's refusal to give up its independent status in football and join the Big East in all sports led to the defection of Miami, Virginia Tech and Boston College to the ACC caused quite the stir.

I headed over to a meeting of the Gene Casey Chapter of the National Football Federation in New Haven to get the reaction of guest speaker Paul Pasqualoni, UConn's football coach. Pasqualoni chose his words carefully and here is what he had to say.

"Well, Notre Dame is in a unique position," Pasqualoni said. "They are going to do what they believe they feel is in the best interest of Notre Dame football so that is part of what I guess what everybody is doing and take care of their own (best interests) taking care of who they feel their associates are, what their conference is, what their commitment may or may not be. It is an all-around hard deal."
