SO SUE US: NO TO UCONN IN ACC ABOUT MORE THAN LAWSUITS

Our good friends over at BC Interruption have a really important reminder for anyone who wants to argue that BC is blocking UConn's move to the ACC over some lawsuit from 2003:
As for the spin, even if there is a BC block on any move by UConn, again, it has little to do with hurt feelings and past litigation. It does, however, have everything to do with BC wanting exclusive conference rights over New England. And again, this is consistent with:
-- South Florida's desire to keep Central Florida out of the Big East-- The Texas Longhorns reportedly needing to be convinced to let TCU join the Big 12-- The supposed "gentlemen's agreement" between Florida, Georgia and South Carolina to keep Florida State, Georgia Tech and Clemson, respectively, out of the SEC.
-- The University of Kentucky being "not cool" with Louisville joining the SEC.
Again, this situation is no different. If there is a block, it doesn't have much to do with the lawsuit, so let's all stop spinning it as such. 
 I love mocking the lawsuit, but there are many many more reasons for BC to try and keep UConn out. Dig deeper, folks.
