Big East Coast Bias and seemingly just about every other media outlet in the USA received the following message from Connecticut president Susan Herbst (we should note it wasn't sent by Herbst herself).
The past several days have magnified the period of instability that exists today in the world of college athletics. I want to say thank you to all of our loyal supporters and fans of UConn and our athletic programs for their patience during this time.
Please know that we will always do what is in the best interests for the University of Connecticut.
We remain committed to our ideals and principals in intercollegiate athletics and will continue to achieve excellence academically and athletically.
After all that unity talk from commissioner John Marinatto last night, we are still seeing that certain schools are still thinking about themselves first. We should remind readers that Herbst did not attend last night's meeting at the Grand Hyatt in New York City but sent her chief of staff instead.
Now we wait for West Virginia's statement later today.
