UConn would be better back in the Big East playing basketball and ...

play their football in another conference. UConn basketball would thrive in the Big East and bring more interest from the fan base since UConn is a basketball school. UConn men's basketball won 4 NCAA MBB championships when they were in the Big East. It is still a top tier men's basketball conference with Villanova, Xavier, Butler, Creighton, St. John's, Georgetown, ...

With your thinking, the MAC, Sunbelt, and CUSA should disband since they're going nowhere fast too. The only G-5 conferences worth anything are the American Athletic and MWC. The proposed conference would be an east coast equivalent of the Sunbelt. Like the Sunbelt or MAC, it would only generate local/regional interest and probably 4-5 lower tier bowl games. Maybe once or twice every decade one of the teams would be top 10-15.
