    Rutgers (Schiano) should play us ...

    Back in the early aughts ... Schiano lost to Villanova. Schiano lost to New Hampshire He then went to the clever OOC scheduling of the HIBC including Howard, Delaware State, etc. He competed in the Big East & tried to make bowls by crafting his OOC. He is back into that for sure. But, he...

    Suggestion: find your way to Tyler Davis on Twitter

    He just gave as emotional a farewell - from a Players perspective - as you’ll see. It’s Classic. Good kid. Very pleased he was rewarded with an experience that struck his heart. Best wishes

    The wisdom of Dan Orlovsky - v1.0

    “2 things that a lot of CFB fan bases need to understand when it comes to new coaches at their programs -you DONT “find” offensive linemen. You DEVELOP them. That takes 3+ years of coaching & weight room commitment. -the QB success is incredibly dependent on WR talent/coaching” ok. I’m buying...

    the Future of Conference ...

    Math 1.0 As illustrated in UMASS AD Ryan Bamberg's recent comments ... Independent status is enhanced as there are now 7. The numbers are such that you have far more flexibility than when there were 4. In fact, he went on to say that the American Athletic Conference (where his fan base got...

    the Cincinnati UCLA mirror mirror

    per Matt Norlander - ranking Cincy 12 & UCLA 80 UCLA: The Bruins are a wild card. I'm ranking them low out of expectation that Mick Cronin's style will need a little time to adjust to the players on this roster, and vice versa, but making the NCAAs wouldn't stun me at all. Cronin gets there way...

    It’s about Rivals ...

    Competition. Games you can drive to or want to go visit. Not getting bumped on your flights to wherever. UMASS is a big Game. A big Day on moving forward. Buffalo. Temple. Navy. Army is HUGE. BC & Syracuse - of course. Rutgers. Maryland. Cincinnati. West Virginia. Pitt. Mount...

    Comparable QB Case Study

    We are told to have some perspective on Jack Z. (from the usual) But we aren't goofy teens following a boy band types. We have a long memory of how this has worked out at UConn since Orlovsky. (anyone else think Randy doesn't pronounce his name correctly>?) Here's a Program we competed with...

    Geek - I would actually like to see a Game Replay

    In an 8 point game ...

    We have to point out the significant deficiency of our Special Teams as something that has to improve. And YES HCRE 1.0 had very good specials. Illinois with booming out-of-the-endzone kickoffs + no major leaks on kick coverage + punts that placed us inside the 15 yard line frequent + the...

    There were 7 Connecticut kids on the Defense

    I give Spanos great kudos for what we saw this first game. Why? They were so frigging embarrassingly inept not that long ago. We pressured the QB, We stuffed the middle, We covered WRs, We held the Edge. And we did not earn 3rd and 15 ... and gave up 24. And ... all over the field, there...

    The Linebackers 2019

    Lou Spanos specialty. LB coaching experiences with the Steelers then UCLA then Tennessee Titans. A UCONN strength through 2003-2010. But ... we are in “Show me” mode. The Courant article was underwhelming - from my perspective. So dialing it back: part of it is the AAC & knowing you’ve...

    Yearly Upset Watch

    USF is playing in Montreal & Quebec City. Like many programs. First UQAM (University of Quebec at Montreal) then Laval. Then Carleton (from Ottawa) and McGill. Every year Programs go in August. Syracuse last year. Carleton beats them. A good Program

    The Notre Dame “Loophole”

    What do you think happens when Notre Dame says they would like a 13th Game. The Committee doesn’t think it’s fair ... that they don’t have a 13th Game. There’s a bunch of talk of a Championship Game Yup. Independent Conference Championship. With TV Money. Let me see there’s 6...

    Woah. CBS Sports pushed ACC revisionist history

    Look at this by an article from Chip Paterson “Things were difficult externally, too. Mark Warner, the then-Governor of Virginia, began lobbying to get Virginia Tech added to the ACC once it became clear the league was looking to add members. A lawsuit was filed by the state of Connecticut...

    Thinking like a AD with a cellphone

    What would have that been like ...

    The AAC is a bridge too far. If they had retained Boise & San Diego State, then they would have had to grab Fresno. Maybe Utah State. Pods across America UConn & Temple & Navy (other division - which again makes me think of Gladchuk) are a disconnected Island. We could have had a 4-6 Team...

    the Liberty future

    This is the Liberty Future Football Schedule. Mix in Clemson, BC, Indiana, Purdue. And that is largely our possibility set. And they apparently not playing FCS. #whatsinmyhead I see meager reasons for years of playing SMU or Tulane or Houston or Tulsa or Memphis. No interest in the just...

    We made a HUGE leap in 2003

    We jumped a few levels. One day you’re struggling against Hofstra (no longer fielding a Team) and then playing Miami & VaTech. Regularly beating and competing with Pitt & Syracuse. What is the landscape today? The region did not stand still. While UMass is admittedly struggling. Temple...

    UConn Baseball ⚾️ came close to breaking into NC Cartel

    Very close. One game - either better against Nebraska or a few runs against the big Hulky softball team of Ok State. The 16 remaining (only ECU) is the NCAA Power 5 Cartel. UConn going forward can & will be better. That’s the big breakthrough. The Oligarchy

    A place I have been to twice - not frequent. I am in Stamford and go to Colony Grill - well known in Fairfield and Westchester Counties. Stamford one is the original. There are 4 TVs on the bar side and it is relatively packed on a Thursday. None of the games on at 9:15 are UConn v Wichita...

    New Recruiting Strategic Paradigm

    We were bad: 1-11 and the Worst Defense ever in FBS history. Some HS kids will buy into your pitch: Be part of the UCONN rise to Bowl Status. Win AAC Championships. 2 things should be very obvious in HCRE 2.0: 1. New England + Northeastern Prep schools are advancing and producing College...

    Diaz lasted 17 days at Temple

    NOW ... jumping to HC in waiting back at Miami. Ouch. I do think that Temple has shown - over and over now - that they transition rather well. No real hiccups from Golden to Addazio to Ruhle to Collins. lots of credit goes to AHC Ed Foley who seems to hold the fort and keeps recruits coming...
