    2019 Coaching Carousel -> Picking up speed.

    I don't disagree that he is a bad coach....but they still had a tough schedule. App St is a very good team. As is Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Clemson... They aren't mutually exclusive. He can be a bad coach AND they can have a tough schedule.

    2019 Coaching Carousel -> Picking up speed.

    Yes. Very hard schedule. Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, Florida, Texas a&m, Appalachian St, and north Carolina have all been ranked at times this year. And 4 of those are in the top 11.

    Current QB situation...

    Definitely. Especially considering how frequently quarterbacks transfer.

    Happy Chief Day

    I am waiting for @Chief00 to come on here and tell us the 11:11 starts were always the plan....but things change. Casual fans don't know how these things work.

    2019 Coaching Carousel -> Picking up speed.

    Agreed. I wish Jones was at UConn.

    Current QB situation...

    I have to admit...I have probably only seen half of the games, but to me the line looks better. More holes for mensah and adequate protection for the qb.

    2019 Coaching Carousel -> Picking up speed.

    He is 11th in the league and paid $3.6mm. And now gets a big raise. At Minnesota. Meanwhile....Edsall has to give up part of his $1mm salary to keep assistants. Sigh.

    2019 Coaching Carousel -> Picking up speed.

    Temple has had an amazing run of coaches. Has it all been one AD? That's the guy I would go after.

    2019 Coaching Carousel -> Picking up speed.

    Yeah...i don't get the Franklin angle. PSU is a better job than FSU. Oregon is a weird job. Lots of Nike money but recruiting isn't as easy as FSU. And the Pac 12 isn't a great conference.

    Kiffin seems like a good fit there. Surprised he isn’t on the list.

    Game Week: UConn @ #17 Cincinnati (Homecoming —> 11/9/19 @ 3:30 on CBSSN)

    Wow. O/U is only 53.5? It seems like Cincy could score 54 alone.

    UConn Should Install the Triple Option

    I wonder if UConn went to the triple option, it would negatively impact scheduling as an independent. Schools don't like to have to prepare for an offense they face once a year.

    It's just not that hard to be competitive.

    I hate to say it, but it's a fair comment. Year 3 of Randy and he can't compete with navy.

    Game Week - UConn v. Navy (11/1/19 @ 8p on ESPN2)

    They had 3 completions for 165 yards? Um... ouch.
  15. ShakyTheMohel

    Current QB situation...

    My problem with this situation is that even though Randy was a QB....and he sees these guys in practice, he has no idea who should be the starter. SK was his last choice...and he looked best. Hard to trust Randy on this decision now.

    College Football Coaches & Commissioners Name Their Favorite Musical Acts

    Not a surprising list... except for Eric Church being so popular. I can't name one song by him.

    Game Week - UConn v. Navy (11/1/19 @ 8p on ESPN2)

    You might want to read through the thread again. I honestly don't remember that game 17 years ago.

    Game Week - UConn v. Navy (11/1/19 @ 8p on ESPN2)

    Well that's an angry post. Honestly...I don't remember that. My apologies.

    Game Week - UConn v. Navy (11/1/19 @ 8p on ESPN2)

    I have nothing but bad memories of Edsall defending the triple option.

    We beat an FBS team

    Sad but true.

    We beat an FBS team

    The truth is...UMass is very bad. But...there's nothing wrong with celebrating a win after watching FBS loss after FBS loss over the last few years.

    Out of state with no access to NESN...

    It appears they want credit card info in that link.

    Edsall: “Today’s Players Aren’t As Mentally Tough”- Gets Mocked By Local & National Media

    This is my problem with what Randy said...he proudly declares that he isn't going to change. When you hear a leader say that in the corporate world, they don't last long. He is too stubborn to realize that he has a responsibility to evolve as kids change.

    Edsall: “Today’s Players Aren’t As Mentally Tough”- Gets Mocked By Local & National Media

    So I listened to the whole press conference, and I don't know how a UConn fan can listen to that and feels good. I didn't hear any optimism...I just heard a lot of excuses. And he freely admits he isn't going to change. He says kids are different, but he isn't going to change. If I told...

    Edsall: “Today’s Players Aren’t As Mentally Tough”- Gets Mocked By Local & National Media

    He is basically admitting he can't coach today's kids. Fine...retire and yell at your neighbors kids to get off your lawn.

    Game Week: UConn @ UMass (10/26/19 @ 3:30)

    All whining about this does is make him seem like more of a dinosaur. It is what it is, let's hear how you connect with these kids despite the fact there they aren't the same as they were 20 years ago. We all get that coaching is easier if people never change.

    Yeah...I'm in California.

    Game Week: UConn @ UMass (10/26/19 @ 3:30)

    So....20 bucks to watch the game? Yeah...not sure about that.

    Game Week: UConn @ UMass (10/26/19 @ 3:30)

    I think they missed a digit. It's 13.5.

    Game Week: UConn @ UMass (10/26/19 @ 3:30)

    So I guess out of town folks are SOL....unless your provider has NESN...which Charter/Spectrum does not. i actually really wanted to see this game because UConn might win...lol

    All day wide open receivers behind the defense.

    It's more about touch. And I think you can improve that. If JZ can improve his touch and pocket presence, he could be very good

    Former UConn OC Joe Moorhead’s Name Emerging At Rutgers To Replace Chris Ash

    Although history disagrees, I still think Rutgers can be a good job. I haven't been following them closely lately, but Ash's salary makes it look like they are spending money on football. Good recruiting area and B1G money.

    Has the admissions gotten worse in the past eight years at UConn

    i don’t think the article matches what the OP headline says. He isn’t complaining about admissions now....they are just talking about why he left the first time. The issue now is leaving the AAC. They are saying similar to admission issues in 2011, the administration is setting RE up to fail by...

    Game Week: UConn vs. Houston (10/19/19 @ Noon on ESPNU)

    Yeah....obviously family of a player.

    What now?

    I guess there is nothing else to discuss...but...how many threads can we discuss the same thing over and over.
