    2021 UConn Football Commit - Daniel Antolovich (Kiental Switzerland

    I think this kid needs to work on moving people off the line of scrimmage. In a lot of this tape he’s only moving defensive linemen 10 or 20 yards down field. Lol, that tape is hysterical. Sounds like a great kid.

    Edsall/Hurley Contracts Extended two years...

    At those numbers the extension doesn't mean all that much and it sends the right message to recruits. I'm not defending Randy's performance since he came back, although I think he did a terrific job his first go around. But, this thing was an absolute mess when he stepped in. P killed the...

    UConn Spring Football 2021 begins...

    We simply have to get some play at LB to have any type of a competent D. We've just been awful there for years. The Mitchel kid looks promising and the ND transfer can play a bit. Hoping we see some surprises from that group.

    PT: Covid positivity rate drops below 5% nationally.

    To be clear, I'm not advocating zero transmittance as a goal. My concern is that as a society we get overly fixated on that, which I believe would be a mistake. I was hoping we would go to something like England with longer intervals between the first and second inoculations so that we can get...

    PT: Covid positivity rate drops below 5% nationally.

    One of the most promising things I continue to read is that the vaccines continue to test very positively in reducing the risk of serious illness, hospitalization and death. The WSJ this morning had an article that England is initiating vaccines 12 weeks apart and a comprehensive study...

    PT: Covid positivity rate drops below 5% nationally.

    I assume the 19 million infected you reference are individuals with a confirmed positive tests. I think the infected base could easily be 2-3x that number.

    I bet UCONN has a good intramural team that could hang with them.....

    Totally agree with this. Except for a handful of athletic programs with true national brands, college athletics thrived with regional alignment and conferences. That has been ignored and I really think there is going to be a price for it.

    It's going on a quarter century since they have had any meaningful success. Conte was another UCONN home site in the Big East days. Honestly, I'm over the whole BC hatred thing. They are in a great conference and we are not. In the new world of college athletics they will see nothing in the...

    Sure, but I think most of us don't want inflation to reduce our standard of living over time. To your point, I think as you really get on in years inflation is less of a concern as you're probably not going to Europe or getting a new car in your 90s.

    That's exactly right, but at the time that investment was made, inflation was much higher, so in real terms the yield on that bond was much less although I would imagine more than real yields are today. Obviously, in hindsight it was a great investment in today's environment of ultra low...

    Markets inflate and bust all the time. This cause may be unique, but the end result will be what it always is........a bunch folks losing lots of money.

    It's not going to end well for a lot of folks. There is no doubt in my mind that there are a lot of newbie investors that have not a clue how this all works. Think of folks who have an unhealthy predilection to gambling. This is really no different and it has more of a feel of legitimacy -...
