This is the closest thing we have to rivalry in this conference and rivalry games never go as you expect

Don't disagree that since we joined the old Big East UConn has become a rival of sorts due to some big games that we've played against them. But, don't forget that we have quite the history with Memphis that goes back a long time through several conferences.
When they right their ship, (notice I said "when" and not "if") the rivalry with Memphis will come more to the forefront.

FWIW, all time head-to-head the Cats have played the Tigers 76 times. The only teams we've played more are Louisville (91), Saint Louis (78) and Xavier (78). We've played Connecticut 24 times but 22 of them has been during the Mick Cronin era.

It really didn't become a rivalry until after the Big East broke up.

This is absolutely a true story too

I agree, but it's been a fun one for the past half decade. And that's even with us getting the short end of the tight conf tourney games. I'm not sure if UConn fans embrace it, but they should. Once UCOnn is back, it will be a really fun one.

Noon games and students being there at tip have almost never mixed in my experience.
