    When he left the first time many of us scratched our heads. UConn was a high rising program and Maryland was just kind of meh with similar if not identical records over the few years leading up to the switch. Both schools were in BCS conferences. His dream job? It was a lateral move at best. Hating his boss aside, it didn't make a lot of sense to us. Then next thing you know Maryland jumps from the ACC to the B1G and UConn is relegated to the American. Did he know what has coming? What does it mean now that he's back? Conspiracy kitty?

    It means we're headed to the B1G. Any fool can see that.

    You've been reading too many HFD tweets.

    Can you really read too many HFD tweets? I think not.

    In any event the return of HCRE means exactly what you think it means. Randy is alpha and omega of our G5 woes. He left and we driven to the depths of energy vampires and faux rivalries. He's back and we will now begin our assent to P5.

    Here is where Randy will make the first difference re CR: fans in the seats. How many people are ready to come back just because Diaco is gone AND Randy is back? I bet attendance b4 THE MOVE would have been under 15K average. Now I think it will be about 28-30K average. P5 wants over 35K but this is a good start.

    For those of us who want to see UConn in the Big 10 or the ACC (more likely), Edsall's return should be considered a step in the right direction. Let's face it, until UConn is getting ranked in top 25 it may be a stretch to get into Power 5 conference. But Edsall can get us there. Diaco was sending us to bottom 25.
