    OT: What are your Thanksgiving plans?

    This year we’ll be buying a much smaller turkey. Normally it’s a gathering of 25 family members, with several roasted and fried turkeys, and all of the other typical side dishes. One of our traditions was after we all sat down we’d go around the table saying (briefly-lol) what we were grateful...

    Head Coaching carrousel mania for 2020 begins

    How would Muschamp and South Carolina be viewed if they had Trevor Lawrence at QB? It ultimately comes down to the QB. And the ability to identify and recruit those guys (like in any business) is what separates all of us.

    Week 10 - game thread

    That’s all true but it’s all about getting the right coach, one who’s able to develop a plan and capitalize on it. Hugh Freeze should be Coach of the Year.

    What a Great Post Game Interview Sounds Like

    After last nights Falcons win, reporter Zach Klein handled the immediate post game presser with Atlanta HC Raheem Morris. The interview flowed at a quick pace, the questions were clear and pertinent and the answers were lucid and concise. Impressive to watch...

    Podcast with Randy Edsall

    Disappointed is the better word, but once all the implications were explained and discussed, most players supported the decision. And while it may seem counter intuitive, it was especially true for those with aspirations of playing professionally.

    Podcast with Randy Edsall

    Nice job Jared! I’m not surprised Edsall stuck by the school’s decision not to play. When the options were presented to the players, the choice was between playing UMass twice and a few other nondescript opponents in empty stadiums, and having to adhere to state prescribed quarantine protocols...

    Mat Peart is NOT a project

    As long as his strength and footwork keep improving, he could become a fixture on the G-men for years to come. Don’t be surprised if he’s named a captain.

    What comes next for UConn athletics/football now that the football season is canceled?

    If it’s improvement you’re looking for, may I present 2019 Omar Fortt and today’s Omar Fortt as exhibit A. Being anticipatory and quick to the ball carrier is one thing, not letting him break your grasp is another. All of the players have committed to a relentless regimen of improvement and the...

    They're playing football all over Europe

    I’m as anxious as anyone to get back to normal but when the SEC, XII and ACC agreed to play I asked what would have to occur to cause a reversal? Most of you said nothing would stop it. Now we have Saban, FLA/LSU, NFL issues, and rising case counts. Is it possible a few of the B1G presidents...

    Which Husky Logo do you like the best?

    The old logo was of a Samoyed not a Husky and was an embarrassment for an institution of higher learning. The Samoyed is a breed of of medium-sized herding dogs with thick, white, double-layer coats. Related to the spitz, they have a temperament that is lively, sociable, playful, and friendly...

    Mike Leach and Miss St

    Leach may be a genius but his O coordinator was atrocious on two late 4th and one calls. A simple play action bootleg run (which was wide open both times) would have given them a first down near the goal line, yet each time they ran the RB right up the middle into a stacked D line and were...

    Work Hard And Win

    My Grandson loves his dog Beckett and wondered if any teams are called the “Labradoodles”. Apparently not. But lots of other breeds are proud mascots.
