    Really Impressed with Andre Jackson's Passing

    I thought he didn't get control of too many of his deflections. Too often, it ended up rights back in the hands of the guy he tipped it from. On several occasions, I noted that he got a tip, and then reached for the ball instead of diving for it. Ended up touching it with his finger tips, while...

    Donyell Marshall

    I would put Okafor's last season ahead of Donyell's. Mek made his season saving freethrow. Yell didn't. Case closed in my mind. I have never forgiven or forgotten those misses.

    Game Day Haiku

    Donyell's team is bad But he's a Huskie legend should we show mercy? No. No, we should not Bouk, Zay Sanogo, et al champing at the bit. They are the Kraken and need to be unleashed now! Decimation... nigh.

    OT: Best BLT Sandwich In CT?

    BLT-plus -- the RichZ way. Lightly toasted Rye -- With caraway seeds. Mayo -- with just a touch of spicy brown mustard mixed in. Lettuce -- iceberg. The thick, crunchy white part. Tomato -- tough getting good tomatoes this time of year, but there's got to be a little of it, even if it's not a...

    Isaiah Whaley

    Yes, it's in a different category. A real nickname. Those others are contrivances made up by unclever people trying to appear clever.

    Isaiah Whaley

    By that logic, we would need new nicknames for Bouk, Gaff, etc.

    Pearl, Person, NCAA

    What is your favorite potential Lineup?

    Kind of surprised to see so little love for Gaffney. Everyone wants to put a newcomer in over the guy who took over the point when we finally found success last year. Cole will get his chance, but I think Gaf will surprise the cramps out of the boneyard. I've got Gaf, Bouk, Tyler, Whaley and Sanogo.

    OT: What are your Thanksgiving plans?

    For the past 25 years, we've had Thanksgiving at my daughter's. She lives 15 minutes from us. But neither of the grandkids is there any longer -- Granddaughter is in Vermont, Grandson in Michigan. So it's just the two of us, and the two of them. Being the epitome of the high risk couple, we are...

    Isaiah Whaley

    From AMORE'S Bouk article, " ...learning from Alterique, from Christian, from Zay [Isaiah Whaley].” If Zay is good enough for his teammates, it's good enough for us.

    A year after a misstep marred his UConn debut, James Bouknight is primed for next-level stardom

    New nickname for Whaley? "...learning from Alterique, from Christian, from Zay [Isaiah Whaley].”

    UConn has all the goods to go all the way

    Every now and then, you see a new post, and just from the title, you know whose post it is. This post is example A in illustrating that phenomena.

    Butler Fan Capacity

    Who is going to police social distance, and how? I see groups of 4 or 5 teens, masks around their necks, walking down the street together in a bunch. I tie my boat to a 4 foot wide dock and get out to go get the trailer. here comes two or three guys walking up the dock together. The look at me...

    Mike Anthony: Dan Hurley and UConn are winning the Northeast, turning vision to reality one recruiting class at a time

    I accept the fact that we have to adjust our definition of big wins after the past 4 or 5 years of mediocrity in the no fun at all conference, and in that light, I consider both the Memphis and Houston wins late last year to be big wins. Correspondingly, I consider the double OT Temple loss in...

    Am I justified in getting torqued off at this?

    Funny, but I don't recall Howard backing it up with the W, and without the W, it's just talk.

    Am I justified in getting torqued off at this?

    This popped up as a video that Youtube thought I'd be interested. My wife heard me grumbling about it, and said, "Well, imitation is the best flattery." I tried to explain that this it should be respected as a common law trademark of the Huskies, not some phrase to be bandied about by posers...

    Mike Anthony: Dan Hurley and UConn are winning the Northeast, turning vision to reality one recruiting class at a time

    Homer? I have several spare pairs of national flag blue tinted glasses to view the BBall world through, in case I ever misplace one. I would have made the late Tommy Heinson look like an impartial observer if I had the opportunity to be a UConn BBall commentator.

    Mike Anthony: Dan Hurley and UConn are winning the Northeast, turning vision to reality one recruiting class at a time

    I'm excited about the recruiting success, and giddy over the possibilities of what the next few years might bring. Stoked for the season ahead. But what I need now, is to see us win some games. Crush some cupcakes and dominate some established teams. At the very least, reach the BE finals and...

    Borges: All LOIs Received

    Not most recent, and not a decommitment per se, but the strangest and most memorable recruiting ordeal -- for all of the many parties involved, not just UConn -- so impactful that the kid's name got verbed over the ordeal: Kasongo!

    OT: Need some good news

    Thanks for all the kind words, everyone. It's great to have friends with a common bond. Look like I'll be off the water for somewhere between 10 days and a month, depending on whether my doctor or my wife wins the argument.

    Latest Samson Johnson workout vid

    I really like how he picks up his dribble at the foul line extended, and effortlessly dunks either right handed or two handed without even the hint of a travel, it's one continuation step and he's airborne. still going up when he gets to the rim. This kid and Andre on the court at the same time...

    OT: Need some good news

    Somebody told me after my vascular surgery in May, that I must be a cat, because I seem to have 9 lives. Unfortunately, by my count, I'm down to my last one. Enjoyed a great day catching stripers on the river on Thursday. Got home and was busy getting the boat and my gear ready to do it again...

    Ken Pom Question

    I see UConn is ranked 43rd in kenpom. Since KP is statistic driven, and there are zero statistics to go by at this point, how did anything change since the last time any college hoops were played, at which point we were ranked 52nd? What measurable criterial has resulted in a change in the...

    No Fans This Season

    I can't imagine any college basketball game, much less a UConn game without any fans in the stands. I mean I went to a University of New Hampshire game when my granddaughter was a student there, and there weren't many fans, but there were SOME. Less than a hundred, but still... On the other...

    2022 Recruiting: Jayden Lemond

    Is it me, or is the move at about the `3 second mark a pretty obvious double dribble?

    Rothstein on Sanogo

    Plenty of precedent for that kind of usage among our superstar guards over the years. Kemba averaged 33 for his 3 years, including 37+ his Junior year. Bazz averaged 32+ for 4 years, including only 25 as a freshman, due to Kemba-nomics affecting minute distribution, but buoyed by 37.3 as a...
