On this week’s episode of The UConn Pod, we discuss the Huskies’ exit fee from the AAC, what it means for football and what David Benedict is saying about it. We also break down the men’s basketball team’s non-conference schedule before switching gears to women’s basketball.

During our women’s basketball segment, we’re joined by Howard Megdal and Megan Gauer to discuss Napheesa Collier’s early dominance of the WNBA, the former UConn stars on the New York Liberty, the rough go of it for Katie Lou Samuelson and Gabby Williams in Chicago while also projecting Crystal Dangerfield’s WNBA stock.

We also discuss the future of the UConn women’s basketball team as Howard explains why Paige Bueckers will eventually be talked about like Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore and Breanna Stewart.
