Even if they were back to the Matt Ryan days...


they would fill their stadium, but no one outside of Chestnut Hill would care. Maybe, if they corrupted their program like the Canes, they could make noise in the Boston metro area.

It's a shame UConn took until the late 90s to establish an FBS program. Had they committed to big boy football at the time of the 1-A and 1-AA split, the ACC may have invited them instead. But knowing Swofford, he still would have opted for the smaller private school with a smaller alumni base just because they were in a big media market
