    OT: Boneyard electricians?

    I do a decent bit of electrical work on larger manufacturing equipment even though background is ME, and I learned that if I don't know how to wire something I sure as hell don't try and mess with it. Take fishy's an electrician. Too many people out there that watched a YouTube...

    Va Lost By 29 to Purdue 69-40

    We lost all of our offense from a team that already didn't put up a lot of points. If we can't keep a team under 50 we're going to struggle to beat them simple as that. Also, one of the worst 3pt shooting teams under bennett. I'm just glad Edwards graduated or we might have lost by 100!

    Busting Brackets: Buy Or Sell UConn?

    The writer actually did his homework on us, too. Pretty accurate write up...on us, however.... How do people keep labeling the squid as "one of the best in-game coaches in the game"???

    Anyone deep frying their turkey?

    Make sure it's fully thawed, Pat it dry with paper towels then I leave it overnight in the fridge so it continues to dry out. I pull it out about am hr or 2 before I drop it in so it comes up to room temp Oil to 350 then it'll drop once the bird is in, then I keep it 325-350 and go 3min/lb...

    (Happy Thanksgiving) What are you most thankful for regarding our Huskies this year?

    That we're a fun team to watch again and players are clearly developing for the first time in years. The kids have passion again, which is contagious. Not very often this happens but on Sunday at the same time I had UVA on ESPN and UCONN on ESPN2 (or vice versa...cant' remember) and it was...

    OT: Hit me with your best Thanksgiving side dishes

    I've been deep frying turkey for the last few years so that's made it palatable. Over the years have also switched from crunchy green beans to green bean casserole...side effect of marrying a southern girl (i still prefer my vegetables quick saute and not soggy). We just did a "real...

    Way too early thoughts on AAC rerank

    Was just looking back at the ESPN preseason predictions for AAC order of finish. Memphis should still be #1, but will probably see some up and down results while wiseman is out. 2 and 3 though with Cinci and Houston look like they could both just as easily be somewhere in the 5-8 range...

    whiteout mojo.....

    Crowd sounded good on tv, but there was one hilarious moment when they checked in with Greenberg in the crowd. It was probably halfway through the 2nd half and Greenberg asked the students around him "what are you guys going to do to get your huskies back into this game?" and the students...

    OT Scary Movies and Shows

    I liked Hereditary but watched Midsommar last night and thought it was such a waste. Spectacular visuals with such a cut and dry cult plot that dragged on forever Some more recent ones I really liked:. The witch (though I don't quite understand the rave reviews), cabin in the woods, it...

    OT Scary Movies and Shows

    Halloween 4, 1, 2 in that order. Remakes are getting better (after they got really awful) but still not in the same conversation The original It tv movie scared the crap out of me when I saw it when I was like 12. Really enjoyed the remake part 1, and looking forward to seeing part 2...

    Since we love making player comparisons (I'm also guilty)....I'm sticking with my Chris Clarke comparison for Richmond, and thinking Kidd-Gilchrist is pretty apt for Jackson...broken shot and all

    2020 Recruiting: Kadary Richmond reopens recruitment

    Richmond kind of reminds me of Chris Clarke from a few years back...both in his play and how his recruitment is shaking out. Both are a Swiss army knife type of player that can play/defend the 1-3 (possibly 4 in a pinch), but will likely spend most time off the ball. Clarke was also seen as a...

    When I'm in traffic and there's a right turn only lane and people jump into it to cruise up to the light and cut back into traffic at the last minute. I hug the bumper of the car in front of me and box them mercy. Especially if they do the honk and wave/point to pantomime me letting...

    OT: Pumpkin Beer

    Avery brewing out here in CO makes the only pumpkin beer I've not hated... Pump[KY]n - bourbon barrel aged pumpkin Porter, and 15% to boot. I only get it at the brewery since they'll do 5oz pours, or possibly grab a single bottle to split with someone. They do a Rumpkin too, but I don't care...

    OT: Any off-the-radar, non-UConn teams pique your interest?

    Even living in Denver I was aware of CU basketball for about a week when we played them in the 1st round few years back...I talked smack to my coworkers who all went there, and they too were only then aware of CU basketball.

    NCAA March Madness Team of the Decade

    2x NC Villanova somehow got bumped by a Tennessee school/team that made 1x E8 and 3x S16 and smallest player is 6'5/240lb Admiral schofield... these fan voting things are just ridiculous. Also, somehow uconn bracket has 3 teams with NCs...solid seeding
