    Hurley suggests the season shouldn't start on time. Clearly, he should retire!

    If we did a better job protecting the elderly.....alas.

    Duke fans hate UConn

    For those if you who dont hate Duke, you need to watch more of their games. The flops. The grayson Allen's, the friggin fans. ALL of them have punchable faces and just started watching college sports only after their elitist families squeezed them in after they faked their resume by saying they...

    OT: Cord Cutters

    I see Paramount has been added to YouTube. I've heard good things about Yellowstone with Kevin Costner. Anyone see it yet? Nickelodeon was added - which my younger one will like.

    Our last few hours in the American.

    It's a good breakup for everyone involved. We peaked early in hoops and were an embarassment for a few years. Football was a complete disaster and a black eye for the AAC. The best highlights were more baseball related than anything. Very good baseball conference. Onward and upward. Homeward...

    UConn poaches Cincy Strength Coach

    Cincy fans - "Why would he leave our powerhouse program for UConn? I mean sure they are a 4 time national champion who is entering a top basketball conference but we are Cincinnati dammit!" What the hell is wrong with these idiots.

    Did Zionn ever make an appearance here? Although I don't think it matters at this point.

    UConn’s plan for cutting $10 million from its athletic budget will be presented Friday and could shape the department for years to come (Amore)

    It would be brilliant if part of this public announcement by the school would be to get donations to start funneling in. I'm sure that was part of it.

    UConn’s plan for cutting $10 million from its athletic budget will be presented Friday and could shape the department for years to come (Amore)

    Again, this is a hockey market (yeah insert Whalers attendace jokes here but they were a HORRIBLE product by and large and were supported in their brief hey-day), and attendance has been good to at times GREAT for the UConn hockey program. And that's without being an upper tier program yet. I...

    Clingan debuts at #47

    I dont usually have sources but I heard in the past week that we are in great shape with this kid. Obviously with all these new offers over the past few days anything can happen. But you know if we lose him it wont be due to the effort of this coaching staff.

    UConn’s plan for cutting $10 million from its athletic budget will be presented Friday and could shape the department for years to come (Amore)

    This hockey take is so dumb. The best they've done is 5th place and yet when they play well they put 6K-7K fannies in the seats. They aren't getting rid of hockey. Covid killed what could have been a final 4 Friday night matchup in the TD Garden against a team like Boston College. I'm...

    Trey Patterson to announce June 18th

    Amazing how Zionns posts under the Hurley staff aren't nearly as negative as under the last year or 2 of Ollie.

    Good point. Parents can be a huge factor in who you root for or choose not to root for.

    Clingan debuts at #47

    He lives in CT and we won championships in 2011 and 2014. It always amazes me how people pick their teams sometimes. But hey its America.

    My first thought was also the buckner inside the parker. Listening to that highlight, I forgot how good Ned Martin was

    Clingan debuts at #47

    I just cant imagine a kid wanting to play for Boeheim and his staff over Hurley and his. Throw in playing opponents LOCALLY and the MSG epic experience. I know that massive dome can hold a ton of people ( too many for hoops IMO) but when gampel is rocking it's hard to beat

    Will the Power 5 Break from the NCAA?

    Football is already just P5 for all intents and purposes. March madness being tampered with? That would be a huge difference. The first two days of march madness are two of the best sports days of the year. People love the Cinderella stuff. 16 games per day packed in 2 days. The brackets. Take...

    Thompson's got to be 1. Averaged a point a game his freshman year, led the league if not country in PPG, went in 1st round.

    2020-2021 UConn Men's Hockey

    Letunov and Thompson were much different players. Thompson more power - esp his one time shot from the circle on the PP. Letunov for a big guy was so graceful with the puck. His goal in overtime against BU was just a great individual effort. Both were better than ishkakov as much as I loved to...

    This is hilarious because its true. Wife has a Costco account, bought a big bottle for a birthday party and damn it was good. And inexpensive. I've heard the vodka is also good (not a vodka drinker)

    2020-2021 UConn Men's Hockey

    Brutal. This kid had a chance to take a major step forward this year. No one on this team had his playnaking skills unless I'm forgetting someone. So i dont quite believe we are that equipped to handle it.

    UConn's Football Failures Are Catching Up to It, and the School Has Itself to Blame (P. Forde @ SI Column)

    We've tried more than anyone to financially keep up with the Jones's when you factor in all the subsidizing our AD we've done. Now because of covid we have to make cuts and hes trashing us? I cant believe his editor approved this idea. Although with no sports I'm sure they are bored out of their...

    UConn bracing for ‘deep cuts’ to sports and academics

    Go back to the 90s. Make all cuts in education so people like me can get back into the college again. In fact cut an extra 10 million from academics and add it to the AD. We are not getting into the Big 10 time to stop acting like it.

    I know about 5 people who drink Gin. Every time I have them try Tang 10 for the first time they've all loved it. I was at Grant's back in the day, asked for a tangueray and tonic and was like WOAH. And they said yeah, we have tang 10.

    Have you ever had tanqueray 10? Barr Hill out of Vermont? I've finally started drinking good gin on the rocks without tonic. Not sure what took me so long
