    Ollie lands a new job

    2014 was a rocket ship built by Jim Calhoun. Ollie rode that rocket ship to the moon and pressed all the right buttons along the way. Ollie also got the parade and hero treatment when he landed, but make no mistake about it, Jim Calhoun built that rocket.

    Ollie lands a new job

    60 percent of the fan base disagrees, since this is an opinion poll you lose. My point about Calhoun hiring Ollie is relevant, if you think Ollie's coaching was key to 2014 you have to give a nod to Calhoun since he was the only one who thought Ollie deserved the job.

    Ollie lands a new job

    What are you talking about? Ollie would have never had the job if not for Calhoun, nobody at UCONN thought he deserved the job other than Calhoun and it was Calhoun's core group of players and Calhoun's coaching staff, (Hobbs and Miller and Calhoun was still in the building in 2014)...

    Ollie lands a new job

    aren't you the same person that criticized Hurley for saying the program was in shambles when he took over? Your insinuation two weeks ago was that a good core was left behind for him to take over. Maybe there is more than one Nelsonmuntz or maybe you periodically speak out of your A.s.s

    Darnold to the Panthers

    This Jets fan trusts Joe Douglas and his long term approach to building the team. I like Darnold and I think he may do very well in Carolina but Joe Douglas sees him every day and clearly didn't like something. Obviously a career defining move for Douglas, I hope he is right. I like the way...

    In Retrospect Was Leaving the AAC for the New Big East the Best Move?

    UCONN is heavily invested in a much better version of lacrosse, it's called ice hockey.

    In Retrospect Was Leaving the AAC for the New Big East the Best Move?

    I agree about the conference competition, the point I made is that the move isn't costing us any baseball recruits so I don't think there is any harm to the quality of the team.

    Isaiah Whaley is back!

    Hopefully Isaiah Whaley's UCONN story ends with his number being hoisted to the rafters. I Believe!

    Baylor Covid Champs or Champs?

    Baylor overcame more obstacles than most championship teams do. It's 1.5 championships.

    Good Tournament or Bad Tournament?

    Definitely a lot more good than bad. Very much better than could have been expected because of COVID. We need a good game Monday night. The two best teams made it to the finals. I think its a toss up. Usually I barely give a darn if UCONN is not involved but i'm pumped for Monday's game.

    Final Four Games UH/Baylor & Gonzaga/UCLA

    Mick is basically where JC was after the 90 loss to Duke....He's just getting started. We'll find out if he has the hunger to be a hall of famer but his path is now clear.

    2004 UConn vs. Gonzaga

    99 was our best team.

    That was a hell of a basketball game

    I love this game. But it will lose some of its long term luster if the Zags lose on Monday. The Yankees' "Boone game" lost a lot of its importance after the loss to the Marlins. If the Zags win on Monday this is an all time classic.

    Final Four Games UH/Baylor & Gonzaga/UCLA

    What's your issue with Timme? Kind of a weird time to be knocking him. Imbred moron? seriously?

    Final Four Games UH/Baylor & Gonzaga/UCLA

    The decade of Mick is upon us. I'm serious. Look at his career record, it's outstanding and now he'll have the talent. He's only 49 years old.

    That was a hell of a basketball game

    Monday's game will get a huge rating now with this game as a lead in. Should be fun.

    Final Four Games UH/Baylor & Gonzaga/UCLA

    yeah OK, Mick still sucks in your mind. Enjoy your basketball team, you deserve it, you're a loser.

    Final Four Games UH/Baylor & Gonzaga/UCLA

    Yeah, but no one is doubting Mick's coaching ability anymore and he is still a young man. This won't be his last trip to the FF.

    Mick to the final 4

    of course Mick's run ends like this, of course. That was special though, an all time great game. Just wow.

    UConn Spring Football 2021 begins...

    Just a typo on my part, I meant DL as I was lumping them all together. However now that you bring it up I wouldn't be surprised if T Jones moves around in passing situations in an effort to generate a pass rush.

    UConn Spring Football 2021 begins...

    "Constant carousal each season"? People just like to make up their own facts. Year one under Edsall Sheriffs was the QB after the first half of the first game. Year two was Pindell all the way. Year three was Beudry who was injured during the first game then Zergiotis a true freshman who...

    In Retrospect Was Leaving the AAC for the New Big East the Best Move?

    You are kidding right? You are asking if our basketball teams would be better off in the AAC? For real? The only sport potentially hurt by the move was football but so far the damage to football seems to be minimal and the slightly easier schedule might help get the football program out of...

    UConn Spring Football 2021 begins...

    Hardcore fans can put together their own two deep and it probably wouldn't be very far off from the actual two deep. QB: is an "or" at this point Krajewski or Zergiotis. I'll believe Leon when I see it but not out of the question. RB: This is easy, expect Mensah and Carter to both get...

    Karl Hobbs was the head coach there for 10 years.

    UConn Football 2021 Tri-Captains Announced... Travis Jones, Brian Keating, Ryan Van Demark

    Yes, and possibly Rose as a blocking TE. I also think Mensah will at least get a camp invite if he has a big year. Uguak is another talented player who I think has a chance at the next level.

    CBS + Turner have best viewership for Sweet 16 since 1993

    It does make sense to have the sweet sixteen round on the weekends. More time to spread out the games.

    Recruiting Transfers - March

    ' UCONN football just had a former player named superintendent of the Stratford school system. Many take advantage of the education and some don't.

    Recruiting Transfers - March

    This is easy, College sports are amateur sports and always will be, if a player wants to get paid just play pro sports (Lamelo Ball), problem solved. Oh you aren't good enough to get paid by a pro team? Tough, join the club, very few people are good enough to play pro sports.
