Jordan said that the administration has faced “continual pressure by the University Senate and some members of the faculty to look at athletics" and a fiscal working group tasked with analyzing the budget difficulties “echoed those sentiments.”
“The athletics department is working [deleted] some strategies that could reduce the subsidy by as much as 25 percent,” he added, referring to the funds that the university allocates to the department. UConn Athletics said in a statement that the department was reviewing “all potential revenue- and expense-based solutions.”

They need to give up on football and pray that basketball survives. In the future, they’re far more likely to resemble Miracle-on-Mockingbird UConn than Fiesta Bowl UConn.

Return to the Big East will be good for UConn and they would be wise to drop to FCS football like the rest of the Big East schools that even bother to play football. Nova has demonstrated you can be successful in both

Eliminating sports? Just football, surely.

Updated: Bad headline. Should read "some sports"

The SI story indicates dropping multiple sports down to NCAA minimum.
