    Dan Hurley on WFAN now

    Mystery guest on moose & maggie. Amazingly Maggie guessed him after 1 question / answer.
  2. Hi-Low

    Thankfully the Mets will be back...

    to the World Series this year ;) and UConn back in the BE in November so 2020 is not a lost cause. The teams I root for haven't seen the post-season since 2016 so I'm grasping for anything to give me some sports elation: UConn - no tourney since 2016 but obviously was in CBB heaven really from...

    It's probably very important that UConn finish the season strong.....

    even though post-season is likely a bridge too far at this point....maybe sneak into NIT. Although the prospect of 7th place in the AAC at the start of the season would have been extremely disappointing now I think it has to be our floor. There are 6 teams above .500 and 6 teams below .500...

    UConn is in last place in the AAC....

    and the schedule doesn't get much easier. I think the effort will be there going forward and the young pups will hopefully get lots of PT but very depressing to be in this position none the less. The upperclassmen have been so disappointing and I feel for them, but clearly DH has to limit...

    Do we start Whaley next game or

    was this just a good match-up for him? I think he earned a start with 13 pts, 11 reb & 4 steals....career game deserves a reward. Carlton was a total zero & not much from Akok either so I would start Whaley for one of them for 1 game.
  6. Hi-Low

    Screw it....Love this team after today!

    We won that game but officials made a couple of CRUCIAL calls against us that were the difference. That was a UConn win so screw the officials that took it away! Bravo CV, Sid, Bouk and all!!!! And officials.....Screw you! Don't care how many free throws we took, WSU fouled constantly. When...

    Thanks Dickie V but please stop worrying....

    about what time it is for christsakes! These teams aren't playing great Offensive BB but defense was very good and deserved better than your clock watching the last 1/2 of the 2nd half! Nobody cares it's past your bedtime! Go away and cover ACC afternoon games and leave us the freak alone you...

    UConn is a have ,

    and the have nots win sometimes and that's ok. UConn has 4 titles in the past 20 years so we are THE have. I was crushed on Friday night when we lost to X in dbl OT because I so want this team to succeed like UConn of 5 years ago. But I know we are back so the sting is subsiding. Yes we are...

    If you can't be with the one you love..................

    then (temporarily) love the one you're with, or one still alive anyway. I'll be rooting for the New England teams (Northeastern, Vermont, Ivy) & AAC (except Cincy). It will probably be short runs for all of them except Houston but who knows. Once the tourney gets going I'll get on board with...

    Looking ahead (2019-2020)......

    If no JA or AG it may well be a short run in the AAC tourney. So while I'm looking ahead I'll still be locked in to the AAC tourney regardless of who is available to play and hoping for 4 wins. Obviously Hurley wasn't kidding when he said this season wouldn't play out like a Disney movie with...

    Updated 2019 Recruit Ranks (espn)

    UConn class #16 overall right now.....pretty nice, hope they all hit the court for us next year Akok - down to #57 Bouknight - up to #65 Gaffney - up to #91 ----------------------------- Precious - down to #16 Mitchell - #73 Wahab - NR (but listed as 4*) ESPN Basketball Recruiting - Player...

    We quite simply aren't good enough to have 4 black hole.......

    scholarships. I'm not blaming anyone and I understand injuries, but with Cobb in the doghouse AGAIN it's quite simply almost impossible for us to beat good teams with Whaley, Williams, Diarra, Cobb occupying 4 "inactive" frontcourt scholarships...................but it's a reality that won't...

    Jalen Adams NBA Draft prospects

    NBA Draft 2019 Best Remaining Players - ESPN Draftcast For what it's worth they don't have Jalen in the top 100.....hope this lights a fire in him. To me it doesn't appear that he was the "gym rat" he needed to be in the off season working on his shooting. I really appreciate Jalen and all...

    Drummond (way too early) HOF Bound...

    I know it's way too early but I looked up where Drummond stands in relation to all-time rebounders. First I was reminded that AD is only 25 and is in his 7th NBA year already.....he was such a pup at UConn. The top 15 NBA all-time rebounders are all in the HOF or locks (Duncan, Garnett...

    I am so starved for a good UConn..

    Mens basketball team it's ridiculous. I know we made the tourney in '16 but that was not a good team....I went to the MSG game vs MD with a MD alum & quite frankly the UConn team was not good....good pieces that should have been a decent team but didn't work for whatever reason. So it's been 4...

    Transfer rules change might be limited......

    to include only coaching change or post-season bans. It looks like transfer rule changes are coming but maybe not all out "free-agency" that would allow players to transfer & play right away 1 time for any reason might be limited to letting players transfer & play right away only if current...

    Are we past the cut-off point to self-impose......

    a post-season ban? We are 11-10 and this might be the last time we are above .500 the rest of the season. Losing the next 2 is possible & then from there we might get above .500 but from what I realistically project we finish 15-16 or 16-15. So right now is probably the final point we can...

    Movie "Fast Break"......

    I was looking for a sports related comedy hadn't seen in awhile and found "Fast Break" on Amazon Prime from 1979. Fun college basketball comedy with Gabe Kaplan as the coach and Bernard King & Michael Warren as his players from NYC that he brings to obscure college in Nevada with him to start a...

    104!!!

    The total margin of our 5 loses to MSU, Ark, Cuse, AZ & Auburn.....when we play good teams we lose big, when we play bad teams we barely win, at least we're consistent. So bad, so bad, so bad...........I didn't think it was possible to be worse than last year but somehow KO just might pull it off.

    Is Polley hurt? Not that he would make a.....

    huge difference really but haven't seen him in this game or Zona that I recall? I saw him on the bench and he a few skills which is more than most of this roster so just wondering if missed.

    Auburn (almost) a must-win game......

    in terms of realistic shot at an at-large bid. At the start of the season I thought the worst case scenario would be 7-5 prior to start of AAC & losing AG or TL for extended time. That would be the reality if we lose to Auburn & we would be 1-5 in "meaningful" games. No we don't have any...
  22. Hi-Low

    Thankfully we still have Kemba...

    & Jeremy....tipping vs GSW soon. Drummond also having a great year along with Bazz getting some PT and throw in Gay on San Anton and all is not lost. I really hope UConn can turn it around in next couple years and return to putting impact players in the league again.

    KO can be so clueless

    as to what is happening during the game. My deceased Grandmother realized a freaking Timeout was needed when Monmouth cut it to 29-24. What is his problem, he needed to get them back in a good offensive flow with a timeout! Instead they tied it at 29 until the TV timeout....stupid. Sorry for the...
  24. Hi-Low

    At least now we know how limited this team is....

    with 4 of our best 5 players being guards that can't shoot. I don't know how this gets fixed this year, we may beat a good team on the odd night but it looks like it will be a struggle to consistently beat even decent teams. The season is not a lost cause but the hopes of gliding to a 24+ win...

    (Very) Early prediction for 2018 UConn FB.....

    8 - 5..........lock it in.
  26. Hi-Low

    Moving on to Arkansas.....

    they lost by 19 to UNC so they will be equally motivated as UConn to win a 2nd game in Portland. If we get out of town with 2 wins and everyone healthy I'll count my lucky stars. Rest those legs boys, tomorrow should be a track meet....Arkansas a quality team. We know we aren't a top 1o team...

    Coach Calhoun will be on Big Mike today.....

    wishing him well as his show nears the finish line. Not sure of exact time but Mike just mentioned was coming up, so shortly I assume.

    UConn back to relevance...

    after a minor pause. All I can say is barring injury we are back to top 25 relevance this year and next couple years at least I think. Yes we have some reaches in the frontcourt but I wouldn't call Diarra & Carlton reaches ( on paper at least). We have a really nice roster this year and we have...

    Knox gives KY 7 of the top 63.....

    commits , 5 of them being 5 *.....if Bamba goes that will be 8 in top 60 (or so). Do KY fans ever get dizzy with the roster turnover every year? IMO sad to see what is now considered the ultimate success in college basketball............All Call has to do is kill it on signing day and on NBA...

    Donny Marshall on Fox pre-show "KO didn't sign up for

    this at UConn"....in summary he was saying KO took UConn job in BigEast not AAC and that UConn will have a tough time keeping him in this conference. Not totally true because the demise of the Big East for UConn was on the wall when KO took over in 2012-2013. He also took a mild shot at past...

    UConn vs BE (old & new)

    I know we have Cuse on the schedule next year but I hope we continue the G'Town games and think about adding the Johnnies & Nova on a regular basis. St. Johns looks like it's on the road back and Nova is Nova. I would think they would all be open to playing us yearly and all of them would...

    Duke draft picks & UConn record?

    I see on some draft sites that Duke may have 5 1st rounders and 6 overall draft picks. With 5 NBA 1st rounders they should easily be the favorites this year although I really liked the way UCLA looked over KY. I don't think anyone has ever had 5 1st rounders in 1 draft? UConn ties for the...

    Let's beat down UCF today & hope SMU does same to Cincy.

    Then let's drub Cincy next Friday & get *#k off the bubble!! Go UConn!!!
  34. Hi-Low

    Would you sign up for the play-in round right now?

    I would sign up for it in about 3 seconds. The loss to Houston has placed us in a very precarious place, teetering between in & out. A loss to SMU would push us back even further. I place our odds of winning at SMU at about 30%, not impossible but not likely. A loss to SMU, beating UCF and...
