    UConn 9 seed in Andy Katz's updated NCAA Tournament bracket predictions

    you missed the BIG News They have RUTGERS at number 4 seed. A Rutgers fan can feel good for a decade on that mention.

    1st college player reportedly dies from covid complications.

    Now it hits the Big Boys wallets

    Once again ... you don't understand a topic; but rant anyway. Business interruption insurance should not have been unaffordable. Yes ... it's VERY common. And we answer the Pandemic variable every day: it would never have been outrageous in cost. This absolutely wasn't predictable or...

    Mid-American Conference Cancels Fall College Football Season

    Why do we always think ... Conference Hoop? sure. A great round robin of 20 games and a brilliant MSG tournament is awesome. Football - if there really is a pool of 30-40 non Giants - is glued together by TV. And the Super League kills the revenue gravy train for the marginal. We get to...

    Mid-American Conference Cancels Fall College Football Season

    You are going to learn a lot in the next few weeks. I suspect some of the Power 5 have huge expectations and broad $ reliance on Bigtime football. The Player safety issue is nonexistent if there's the possibility of mid $30-50m revenue. The MLB early returns show that this all exists on very...

    Right Move, but . . .

    our State (I don't live in Connecticut) is overachieving in the containment of the virus For any sports media to think 45 other states are gonna play is highly speculative at this moment. They can take potshots. But I cannot expect games this fall in today outbreak virus explosive states...

    2021 Recruiting Thread

    Mmmm You act like a know it all ... and you know scantily. Everyone with a touch of UCONN football recruiting insight would see this year has been solid. Numbers. Comparable offers. Roster targeting. Plus the 4 or without More? Same ol Randy - we don’t get the inside

    Chief is an interesting idiot. He’s obviously not followed UConn football recruiting long To have 14 verbal commitments - without summer camps (which are basically tryout camps - and we have numerous good stories from previous years) - is astounding. Plus the Coronavirus. Edsall & staff...

    2021 Recruiting: Rahsool Diggins Commits to UConn

    Favorite Huskies That People Forget About - (blog)

    I think ... If you’re a young UCONN Husky fan, I wish you could have watched Joey Whelton, Al Weston & Lee Otis Wilson. Why? Gosh they were shooting the ball from way out - long before the 3 point line. And neither Whelton or Weston were of a size you’d see play for The University once we...

    Pessimism grows in college football over season starting on time (update: it’s crumbling):

    Shrug Mississippi is going to be ($50m) less ... and then Spring. The equivalent UConn loss is probably less than $10m. The University of Mississippi (Tennessee, Auburn, LSU, etc) major revenue driver is football. Sure UConn is incredibly challenged in the last decade; the immediate hit...

    Money The Southern Public State schools monetary Needs are far different than Ivy. The answer is money. And while UConn budget is challenging ... being a Mississippi with a loss of tens of millions that they plugged into the budget will lead to a different decision tree.

    Part of the message This isn’t the same virus as early March. And it’ll change in two months. You can’t explain the low mortality rates of Japan, Korea & Taiwan v Italy or Spain. There are huge unknowns. There’s no way a massive outbreak now in a southwestern city patterns itself to a...

    NYC - in general - has some of the best hospitals and access to brilliant staffing in the country. That absolutely is not true of many many of the denser demographics in AZ, FL, GA, TX or NC. Just not near. A similar wave coming these next 2 weeks will break hospitals easier. There’s...

    You’re wrong Carlton is effective. But he came in as a limited basketball big ... and he won’t improve. He’s got good post moves; he thinks well on defense (though lacks physical qualities); he can score. He’s a good teammate. In the whole arc of UConn bigs, he’s fair. Dude. Bro...

    That’s a misinterpretation of Carlton & the games we schedule. Carlton will have teams he is a perfect plug in our Gameplan; Whaley has developed into a far more utility Big for the way Hurley wants to play. Both have matured & will play.

    Saying 2014 was just Shabazz, Boat & DeAndre missed big keys I just re-watched the NC game versus Kentucky. The BIG plays in the last few minutes were Giffey and Kromah. One then another. I’ve yawned at my fellow Yard saying Shabazz coaches that Team. The other two played big.

    2021 UConn Football Commit - Tyler Phommachanh (Stratford CT)

    This is the way QB recruiting goes for UConn when we do it right. We don’t nudge a P5 off a polished tall stud. We aim for kids who can really play - but maybe they’re dinged a bit for some reason. Playing in New England. Too short. But they have an arm; pocket sense and legs; leadership...

    From a fan perspective, sorry AAC peers. We get MSG intensity games in hoop. Name programs at the Rent. And the future with full loud UConn fans cheering our Blue. Money doesn’t really matter; we were at a low in your structure. Might be good for you.
