    What is UConn?

    Third question from the top This is in my neck of the woods. The pleasures of having a high school level football team. Edit: UCI is UC Irvine, a school about 90 miles from where I live. They don't have winter breaks and consequently no need to look for housing in Connecticut.

    TENN vs SCAR

    I started the Теннесси vs aTm thread on the 11th and left for work. I returned very late and enjoyed a most wonderful set of posts on the game. I am working this weekend from 2pm. I must leave 20 minutes after the game starts. The aTm Теннесси game reminded me of French histories of the battle...

    UConn talk on McGraw's bench

    Boneyarders may take a look at this thread on O'Brien Mcgraw's bench that shows how the Irish fans stay au courant with our coaching, our recruiting and other aspects of our basketball. Here is a typo corrected sample quote about Geno which is both accurate and laudatory. Although we should...

    Tennessee @ Stanford - 12/21/17 (merged thread)

    I am losing peace of mind. An imperial victory followed by a UConn win at Toronto will narrow the gap between Geno (1000) and Tara(1018). I would rather embrace another religion than back the empire.

    Texas at Tennessee (merged thread)

    For every Ladyvol fan whenever he or she wants it, there is the instant when it is not yet 3pm EST on that Sunday afternoon, December 2017, the benches are in position on the sidelines, the guns (allowed in Tennessee) are holstered, the cheerleaders and the band are already loosened to breakout...

    Why Can't Kim Mulkey get past Elite 8

    Why can't Kim Mulkey's Baylor Bears get past the Elite Eight? The state of Big 12 men's basketball gets precedence over Kim Mulkey in this article. The title raises a question but the answer is not there.

    Two birds with one victory as the worm turns

    Geno was in the sixth place on the Wikipedia list of NCAAW winning basketball coaches for several years. He tied Barbara Stevens of Bentley for the 5th place in December last year. After the SMU victory he is in the 5th place all by himself. The Wikipedia list has not been updated.

    Moriah Jefferson victrix

    Stars 79 Sky 78 This was their best opportunity with Vandersloot "has not entered the game". Jefferson was taken out of the game at 3:05 in the 3Q. Stars needed to score to win this game and that probably was the reason MJ did not come back. I only watched the last 3 minutes and did not get to...

    Chance of setting an NCAA record today

    Currently Tennessee and UCONN are tied at the top with twenty 30 win seasons each. A victory this afternoon (yes afternoon on the West coast) over USF will put us in sole possession of the 30 win season record.

    Some unimportant observations

    1. I will start by thanking Tara and the Stanford players for defeating us last year. Consequently, our team is battle-ready from day one this season. No other team matched our preparations. 2. Nikki Caldwell (her last name has changed after marriage) is 3-3 at LSU. She is no longer an option...

    Duke almost beats aTm

    Using its impressive stable of high school AA players, Buchanan Duke University went toe to toe with aTm tying the game 63-63 at the end of regulation. It ran of gas during OT and lost the game 72-66. Needless to add that it was a home game. Disclosure: I believe aTm was first used by EricSandiego.

    Some questions

    1. If Stewie is picked up by the Connecticut Sun, which player will be cut? Kayla Pedersen? Certainly not Dr. Elizabeth Williams? 2. Will Dangerfield's lack of height be a problem against the better teams (ND, SCAR, MD etc)? 3. I would like UCONN to recruit a top notch center from the 2016...

    A question

    This is after the SJ defeat. UCONN is used to steamrolling its opponents. It does not get too many chances to play a tight game at the last minute when you need to scramble for possession. How does such a team preapare for this occasion? There are 2 questions here - how do the coaches...

    Awfully important game tonight

    UTN vs KY at Knoxville Many of you already know that Coach Pat is within striking distance of a milestone - 1100 career wins. A win tonight will bring her a step closer. I hope she coaches long enough to achieve this although not at the expense of a UCONN championship.
