    Olson, Laflin, McCormick Weigh In: Could UConn women be poised for another dominant run with 2020, 2021 recruiting classes?

    The old adage "never say never" comes to mind with reading this article. Too many factors come into play like injuries, transfers and for this year/ season COVID. Talent is great but coaching will make a big difference. Geno hasn't lost the desire to win. Nor has he lost the talent to bring all...

    WBB’s Thanksgiving Plans?

    Since we moved to Florida 4 years ago, we have had a friends Thanksgiving. We invite some neighbors over for the feast. We usually have 6 to 8 adults. Since we live in a 55+ community, that will not happen this year. The wife and I will be traveling to her youngest brother for the feast - about...

No fans allowed for the 4 non-conference games. After that, there may be limited seating for home games. Those with season tickets will get first...

    Season Hangs On Olivia and Christyn

    Not a bad article. But not that great. Too many keys factors left out of the article. What I read is the physical and mental maturation of two talented players beginning to show. Christyn And Liv will be fine. Will they lead they way? I believe so. But they do not have to do it by themselves...

    With ND withdrawing and Louisville stepping in, should UConn move on from ND when contract expires?

    I voted to keep ND on the schedule. Granted last year was bad for ND, but they are still ND and carry a lot of weight nationally. Whether Ivey can bring ND back to a top 5 team remains to be seen. She may have been the power behind the throne, but following a legend is no easy task as has been...

    Still waiting on South Florida's schedule. The AAC site and the South Florida site are blank for men's and women's basketball.

    Azzi announcing tomorrow 11am

    If Azzi needs an example of what 4 years under Geno means - she only needs to look at Chrystal Dangerfield's career so far. Drafted in the second round, thrust into a starting point guard role, excels and becomes the WNBA Rookie of the Year. A program like UConn can be a difference maker for...

    No Fans At Gampel This Season

    No news yet from USF on season tickets for the men or women. I'm assuming at this point that attendance will be limited at the games. But with the Tampa area still a problem spot - who knows.

    Alexa P: 5 Unanswered Questions About This Team

    Writing is decent, but nothing spectacular. Nothing new that any true UConn fan did not already know.

    Giants 0-16

    As a Giants fan from way back, they outright suck!!! Barkley gone with an ACL. I told my sons, Giants fans, that Barkley would blow out a knee because the o line is pitiful. Jones is okay as a QB but he is not going to lead them to a Super Bowl. The Giants front office is a joke. Gettleman is...

    If not basketball, then what sport?

    Oldest son, age 40, still plays baseball in CT for the Brookfield Knights. The old man, me, rides the bike 6+ miles everyday - well almost every day. Not today! Social get-together last night! Too much bourbon!!!

    Three Favorite Cities for a Long Weekend Visit

    When we lived in CT, our favs were NYC (we had a timeshare), Boston, and Mystic. Now that we live in Florida, our fav get-a-way is St. Augustine. So much history, great food, tons of places to stay. Our favorite time is Thanksgiving thru New Years. The entire city is decorated in white lights...

    OT: WCBB Headed Here? or Already There

    Just to get a little hometown (Poughkeepsie, NY) plug in. Wes graduated from Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) High School, Hyde Park, NY. One of his nick names was the "Poughkeepsie Popper."
