…..This could have happened

1998….Lou Perkins leaves UCONN to take the reins as the Commish of the Big East and immediately raises the exit fee for teams wishing to leave to $75 million. Tranghese and the Providence mafia are voted out by the football schools. ESPN rejects ACC football network plan as untenable after FSU announces that it is accepting an invitation to join Lou Perkins new Big East football conference.

1999….Dave Gavitt and Providence College file suit against the Big East football conf after the Basketball only schools are shut out of the new TV profit sharing arrangement. Case is thrown out.

2000…Randy Edsall unexpectedly resigns as UCONN's football coach to take a position as the football coach at Ball State. UCONN announces it is in talks with Nick Saban to take the reigns as UCONN's next football coach. Connecticut legislature debates Sabans reported salary of $7 million plus incentives.

2000…Saban announces his first big UCONN recruit when Matt Leinart announces he will attend UCONN

2002…UCONN signs high school phenom Reggie Bush.

2003…Basketball only schools leave Big East, after Perkins waives the exit fee, to join the MAAC as the "Catholic Only Conference Division".

2004…UNC leaves the ACC to join the Big East football conf.

2005…John Swofford resigns as ACC commish, after his 3rd DUI arrest.

2006…Big East football network hires Vern Lundquist…also signs Erin Andrews to a 7 year contract as chief field reporter.

And the whole thing still fell apart in 2013. Imagine that.

Gee I don't know...let's see, Edsall had only been coach of Yukon for one season in the year 2000. Yukon was not yet playing in the Big East Football Conference in 2000. But Saban goes to Yukon? Yeah, that could have happened.

I've got a "What if..." for you. In 1986, Boston College hires Jim Calhoun from Northeastern instead of Jim O'Brien. Yukon basketball continues to suck as they did for the first decade of the Big East. The BE football teams - of which Yukon is not - split off from the basketball onlies, leaving Yukon behind.

My scenario seems a lot more realistic.
