    UConn to new Big East? What happens to Husky football?

    Some website called Digital Sports Desk is reporting our basketball programs (and I assume all other Olympic sports) are joining the new Big East prior to the 2020-21 season. At first I thought it was a bad joke on somebody's part, but several posters on the BB board are lending some credence to...

    UCONN to new Big East

    Some website called Digital Sports Desk is reporting that we will be moving to the new Big East for basketball prior to the 2020-21 season. Many of us have never heard of this site, and there is already considerable discussion about it on the men's board, some of which is making it look...

    OT Burt Reynolds passed away

    The pride of the Seminoles! He was 82 years old. I saw him at an FSU game in 1989. Lee Corso was his teammate and roommate when they played for FSU in the 1950's. Burt's CFB career was cut short due to injury. RIP.

    Azura has been a rock... both ends of the floor.

    Scrubs looked better than starters tonight

    They played with a lot of energy, had good ball movement, and played well defensively. Very encouraging. There will be games when we need some of them to perform well.

    Kelly Faris in the house tonight

    My favorite Husky of all time. Her BB IQ is off the charts...daughter of a coach from basketball-land, a/k/a Indiana.

    OT: Chris Berman's wife died in car wreck today

    Very sad news. His wife Katherine collided with another vehicle from behind on Rt. 64 near Lake Quassapaug in Woodbury. The other driver was also killed. They were married for 33 years. Thoughts and prayers to their families and friends. RIP.

    OT: Dak Prescott a no show?

    I assume we would have seen his mug on ESPN about 50 more times tonight had he been at the game. He said he had "other commitments".

    GO QUIN-eh-pee-ack!

    Let's make Connecticut 2-for-2 today!

    That was the best 16 seed I've seen since Alison Feaster's 1998 Harvard team that beat a depleted Stanford roster. The committee royally screwed Albany. They deserved a whole lot better than what they got. You can't drop teams down that many notches merely for the sake of geography. It ruins any...

    Team reaction to selection show

    If you're looking for how the team reacted to their bracket, it's at the end of this week's HBO show, which aired for the first time tonight.

    More bad news for Syracuse

    URI 46 Davidson 34 at halftime. The Rams are a potential bid stealer, just like us. Otto is getting juiced at a local watering hole. The Dome Ranger has lost his mount. Boeheim is obsessively picking his nose. Things are getting really dicey at "The Harvard of Central New York".

    80 minutes away.....

    .....from an automatic berth in the NCAAs. It's March. It's UCONN. Any questions? Will anybody want to see us in their bracket? Let's make every one of those 80 minutes count. We are now the most feared team in America among NCAA bubblers. March comes in like a lion and goes out like a Husky.

    Tulane - UCF painful to watch

    14 first half turnovers for Tulane, and neither team can throw it into the Thames River...awful display of BB.

    Jalen Adams = Money!

    Gut check performance by everybody down the stretch, on a day when we didn't exactly play our A or even B game.

    Collier literally saved us

    What a game. Geno just said she does it all the time so you come to expect it from her. We lose this game without her. She saved our butts tonight.

    Merry Christmas to all Boneyarders!

    All I want for Christmas is a new head football coach soon after Jan. 1.

    Ryan Griffin does Lambeau Leap in GB!

    TD pass from Osweiler on 4th and 1 from the 6 yl...he found a group of Texans fans along the rail in the EZ and jumped on top of them!

    OT Memphis shredding Houston defense

    34-17 at halftime. Memphis has scored on every possession in the entire first half. UH lost its best DB for the rest of the game on a targeting penalty. It looks like the Houston players have been hearing and reading that their coach is outta there, and they're playing like it.

    OT IPFW stuns No. 3 Indiana

    Mastodons win 72-69 in OT at Fort Wayne. Fans stormed the court, rightfully so. Indiana hadn't played a game in FW since 1967. It was the first win over a ranked opponent in school history.

    Our future HC up next on College Gameday?

    P.J. Fleck! Probably not, but we can always hope and pray. Without hope, what do we have?

    Skip Holtz team has 35 HT

    35-24 over a good Western Kentucky team. It becomes increasingly difficult to watch CFB games involving lower level conference teams that can score points at will, presumably with less talent than UConn should be able to attract.

    Diaco getting outcoached by 30 year old rookie

    Shirreffs won't last half the season if our whole offense boils down to him running for his life. The Edsall style conservative play calling is all on the offensive coaches and Mr. 8-17. Yes, let's run 45 seconds off the clock instead of trying to score at the end of the first half. Three years...

    The Charley Barkley Curse

    He's already picked Kansas to go all the way, so at some point in these proceedings, they WILL lose. Why not tomorrow?

    We are America's Team on Selection Sunday

    Nobody other than Memphis fans want to see them win. They would steal somebody's at large bid. We will have lots of fans nationwide.

    Gibbs and Miller in the Dance

    I desperately want to see these two guys make it to the Big Dance. That's what they came to do here at UConn, and we're almost there. Gibbs may have made it at UT, but I'm pretty sure Miller has never been in it. Although we have debated and discussed their shortcomings here ad infinitum...

    Houston needs Jalen for this one! Plenty of time...1.7. Jalen could eat a sandwich and still make it with that much time left!

    Win or lose, Adams became a man today!

    What a gutsy performance. As the late Al McGuire used to be fond of saying, "The best thing about freshmen is they become sophomores." Adams already has!
