    Franck Kepnang

    How come we're not hearing anything about Kepnang? He's rated a five star and #19 nationally and #3 for his position by 247 and we are listed as one of his offers. Played with Gaffney and it seems his name has been mentioned quite a bit in the past but nothing lately.

    56 seconds left in the half, UConn ball 40 yards from the opponent's goal line, all 3 time outs remaining, and Randy Edsall thinks: -How do I show my team I have confidence they are improving? -How do we end a poor half on a positive note? -How do we tell our opponent we're playing tough no...

    2020 Recruiting: Terrence Clarke to announce Saturday

    Announcing Saturday, September 14. Still not sure how BCU made the Select Six, especially since one of the staff told me last Fall that we were recruiting him. What could possibly make him include them with the other five and exclude us...

    Missed Call(s)?

    Illinois had three unsportsmanlike calls and other penalties, but I thought they got away with a hold on Ian Swenson on the play where the QB scrambled to his left and threw a TD into the back left corner of the end zone.. Swenson's shirt was held and you can see his body rotate when he broke...

    My wife and I watched the quarter, semi and final of the 2011 BE Tournament the past three nights to get away from reality and it struck me how quickly we had forgotten how fast and strong and deep our teams once were, how relentless they were on defense and how well they ran the break. The...

    Andre LaFleur

    A couple thoughts after reading Borges' article on Ntambwe in which he quotes Andre LaFleur. First, if we're recruiting Achiuwa for the SF position, LaFleur makes it sound as if we might be better with Ntambwe. Secondly, if Pikiell's assistant takes the Fairfield job, wouldn't LaFleur be a...
