    Generational Players-when can you tell?

    So if a “generational” player is based on championships, Dan Marino and Barry Bonds are not ‘generational’ despite their career accomplishments! Tyler Olander is???

    Calhoun and Company

    I'll always love Rod Sellars for his defense on Chrissy Laettner.

    2020 Season Tickets? Renewing or not?

    I live in South Carolina, so I haven't been to many games for years. I've bought tickets for the past 5 years, just to show some support, with the proviso that they are used to get asses in seats, i.e. families of recruits, donors or potential donors, kids from the area, etc. Even went to the...

    This is not good.

    Not to be a stickler, but the line comes from The Secret of the Sierra Madre, not Blazing Saddles. Although Blazing Saddles may be one of the top 3 movies ever made. They just couldn't make that one today.

    Unexcused Absence: Why Is College Football Attendance Tanking? (SI)

    I believe there is a more insidious reason for dwindling attendance, not only for college football, but all sports. Much of what hardcore said is likely true. But over time, money has attacked and diminished the integrity of all games and that leads to people blowing off actual attendance. If...

    Bring back the white dog

    At would seem that we have all the evidence we now need. Since the University made the decision to retire the old friendly, white Jonathan as our mascot, all we've had is pain. It's clear that moving to the new wolf-like Husky has resulted in losing seasons for at least men's basketball...

    Giants next head coach?

    Anyone who can get them to 0-16. I hate the Giants. At least until they play the Plowboys.

    Keeping Randy Edsall

    You guys are clearly wack jobs. Edsall isn’t going anywhere for at least a year and maybe two. Then you can get a read on whether he’s going in the right direction. By right direction, I mean winning seasons...7-6; 8-5; we’re never going to be a lot better than that, maybe an occasional 9-3...

    Of Course This Diet Came From A UConn Baller

    Hey! Cut him some slack. This diet works. Every time I put my beer can down, it weights less than when I picked it up.

    So What's Next?

    Yeah. But we no longer have a conference

    So What's Next?

    So, what’s next? Well, I’d say that half of us eejits on this board want Edsall fired, half want to give him at least one more year, half really don’t care as long as the entertainment value of reading the competing posts of the first two groups maintains a high level. News flash folks. It’s...

    Hardcore out

    Ok, I think I’ve got it. If a UConn coach tells a recruit - even a 4 or 5 star recruit - that he should play at UConn, that should be enough to get him here. If he chooses to go to Alabama, or Clemson, or Ohio State, or Notre Dame, it’s the coaches fault. He just can’t recruit and he should be...

    Good Feelings Again

    What! No morality at Puke? We shoulda known.

    Well this is interesting. Ever wonder why so many burger boys end up at Puke? Gilbert Arenas: Duke has paid players $200,000 to play there

    I dunno. He couldn't recruit in year one because he came in too late. His recruits in year 2 and 3 are redshirt freshmen and true freshmen respectively. They were saying that 43% of the roster are redshirts and true freshmen. I figure that, without the turnovers, we score at least 10 more...

    Dog or cat?

    Get a pet rock and name it Fido. A dog or cat are basically equal. They both taste like chicken.

    No New Jerseys, No Block C Gear Available

    The block ‘C’ is dull, unimaginative, and mundane. (Oh, wait! That means it’s probably perfect for our fan base.). A logo should be immediately recognizable and related to the University. A block ‘C’ could make us California, Colorado, Cincinnati, hell we could be Carver High School (for...

    Charleston Classic

    Well, I can set up golf at my club if you are interested. But there's tons of Civil War stuff here...Ft. Sumter, the Hunley (CSA submarine - first to sink a ship). Tours of Old Charleston, ghost tours and the like. Boone Hall Plantation is a nice side trip. South Carolina Aquarium...

    Charleston Classic

    I live down here now. TD Arena holds about 5100 and seats are generally general admission. This is a good walking city, lots of bars and restaurants in the area. Parking shouldn't be much of a problem... either availability or cost. (Drink costs are nominal too, compared to bigger cities.)...

    Eric Torkelson - '74

    For the record, our first win over Yale was in 1966. I was there on my birthday. Tork wasn't at UConn then. Might have been confused with Vin Clements, another incredible back that played for the Giants for a couple years.

    Daltrey probably wasn't complaining about the smoke in the 70s because much of it was coming from his own blunt.
