Good move think ND and the newer teams meant too many games outside the Greater Boston area. Everyone other than Maine used to be within an hour or so of each other. Ideally I'd boot Uconn to ECAC or Atlantic and just have 2 fewer teams. They'd deserve it too for keeping Umass and their football program out of the AAC those losers sure didn't learn a thing from their ACC snub refusing a natural rival an hour away access to that mediocre conference.
Would love to see HC bring back Football at the FBS level and have basketball join a better conference and play at the Centrum too. Boston College even with Flutie and Ryan has never had the same level of relevance that HC did back in the day. Recruiting would be pretty tough being a big Syracuse fan myself I can say that the Northeast is not a fun place to try and convince top recruits to come and play but Army and Umass would definitely give them home and home series no questions asked with both being independent with a lot of dates to fill and so close to each other geographically.
