    OT: Africa Safari

    A neighbor just returned from a trip to Africa. They saw three of the major sites and loved it. They also chose to go to Namibia. By far and away her favorite.

    Serious(ly). Let me buy you some coffee to help you wake up and catch the reference. ;)

    UConn out on Valdir Manuel

    Good start. Aptitude and interest/motivation are both factors. Some people can love mathematics, be great at geometry, average in algebra and poor with calculus. Some kids can be good on offense and poor on defense. Eric Cobb and Steve Enoch come to mind. In Steve’s case I’d conjecture...

    With your history you should be the one manning the urinals and not chief.

    OT: What is the most petty and/or vindictive thing an employer has ever done to you?

    Bad reveal. I’d have given them twenty pages and made up details. Feel the alpha.

    The Athletic: Dan Hurley on the challenges of returning UConn to glory

    Early KO related to his players. Bazz went to the mat for him. During and post divorce KO probably took out his anger on the players. Most likely the cause of the animosity between Glen and KO whereby Glen tried to intercede on behalf of the players and KO felt Glen was undermining him.

    OT: Best Vocalist You've Seen Live

    Charity event at Warner Theater in Torrington. I was backstage security for a concert featuring John Sebastian, Arlo Guthrie and Richie Havens. Richie killed it. Played so hard he broke a steel string. David Clayton-Thomas 1977. San Juan Hotel ballroom. Center front row seats same level...

    The Athletic: Dan Hurley on the challenges of returning UConn to glory

    This confirms my suspicion. The tapes I watched of his games at prep school also support this. Any information about Durham? Medical caution?

    The Athletic: Dan Hurley on the challenges of returning UConn to glory

    On paper that 2016-2017 team should have given us high expectations. On paper the front court of Brimah, Enoch, Durham, Facey, Larrier would have destroyed last seasons group. Not playing Steve and Durham is a head scratcher. Brimah certainly missed Hamilton on offense and his savant...

    The Athletic: Dan Hurley on the challenges of returning UConn to glory

    Having a system that works, getting the players to run that system, teaching that system and implementing it are positives. However recruiting is not a given and coaches often have to settle with players that don’t fit their systems. Injuries or foul trouble are inevitable exacerbating the...

    Ray Allen seeking protective order against UConn

    The child is having a tantrum. You don’t reason with children when they have tantrums. You put them in timeout. Sadly this thread has a lot of posts that demonstrate immaturity and selfishness. Worse case is a poster who’s wife is rapidly deteriorating and another poster who, well aware...

    Clearly he’s heading to UCLA.

    Recruiting: Andre Jackson 2020

    I don’t get it either. Love CV. Kid gives 120% effort. Contributes on both ends but his handle is subpar for a guard which limits his half court offense when he goes into a shooting slump. Like Polley. Decent 3 pt shooter. Inadequate handle limits his offense. Sid Wilson is uber...
