    Mens BBall Forum - How old are you?

    I'm 58, Tony Hanson, Al Weston, Joey Whelton and John Thomas from Bogalusa Louisiana were my first favorites. I would always cheer for the NVL guys. Abro, Hanson, Murray Williams, Edmund Sanders. Me and some buddies had a couple of drinks with Edmund before a UConn game at the Civic center a...

    2004 UConn vs. Gonzaga

    Gonzaga has one guaranteed pro in Suggs. They almost lost to an 11 seed last night. UConn 2004 would have routed them.

    OT: Roy Williams retires

    Why would Hubert Davis leave a lucrative media job if there wasn't a tacit agreement that he would be next? I've got him at even money. They are not going outside the family for a new coach.

    OT: Cronin Complains About G-League

    There is no working agreement between the NCAA and the GLeague. They are separate entities. The kid wasn't poached. He was offered an alternative. The NLI has consequences within the NCAA but means nothing to the GLeague. The kid didn't quit he chose a different path. What type of penalty...

    OT: Sidd Finch in transfer portal

    Novelist Jonathan Dee, who was working as Plimpton's assistant at the time, described Plimpton at the time of the writing of the article as "a wreck". Dee wrote years later, "Nothing, he knew, falls quite so flat as a bad joke. This alone is reason enough for me not to try it again. Hopefully...

    OT: Sidd Finch in transfer portal

    Past your bedtime is hilarious (and true). 18 year old looking at first Hustler should have been 13 year old Absolutely one of my poorer efforts and that list is long. My apologies to all.

    OT: Sidd Finch in transfer portal

    Guy once made 300 consecutive 3's in practice. Can hedge out on guards and recover in the lane without fouling. He can screen and rock and screen and roll. He once took a quarter off the top of the backboard and left bitcoin. I can't find any film of him on Youtubes. He was at Harvard but...

    Who Will Be the 12th Big East Team?

    BE won't take Dayton because of Xavier. No way on UMass. SLU maybe. Zags pipe dream. VCU c'mon man. Rhody no way. Gosh, our Tourney fog is bad. Let's leave well enough alone for now. Brown is not leaving the Ivy's. @BigErnMcCracken how did you end up at the most liberal of the Ivy league...

    Hurley will never take UConn to the next level

    @Tenspro2002 your points are valid. I just think the state of the program is in a different place then in the years you point out. The years you mention were great and some regression could be expected. Our accomplishments this year - third in the BE, a 7 seed and first round loss is far from...

    Hurley will never take UConn to the next level

    No around the bubble next year. No regression allowed. UConn will be a five seed or better next year. I'm not sold on DH as an in game coach, yet, but I think he knows how to grow a program and I don't see a step back next year.

    It's been put to rest the Big 10

    Yep overrated. I thought Michigan and Illinois were ranked correctly. I was skeptical of OSU and Iowa. My son is an Iowa grad and we have had an argument about Iowa for years. My point is Fran McCaffrey(my least favorite college coach) never coaches any defense and until he does Iowa won't go...

    OT: Yarders attending UConn-Maryland

    We will be at The Tap in West Lafayette pregame tomorrow if any Huskie fans want to meet up. I'll be wearing a grey UConn hoodie with a Ray Allen jersey underneath and a We Are UConn tee shirt underneath. If we win and you're looking for me after the game I will be wearing a Huskie jock strap...

    Fans Traveling to Indianapolis

    Stubhub Tickets still available Price is reasonable considering no one has bought a ticket for anything in a year. You and I have some sort of Torrington connection so meet us at The Tap in West Lafayette and we will enjoy a UConn victory.

    Big East Transfers

    My question has probably been answered already so apologies beforehand. Are team rosters and scholarships allowed expanded for next season? Would someone please explain how it works for UConn if three guys opt to stay and we bring in three freshman. As a hypothetical, I don't care to...

    OT: Yarders attending UConn-Maryland

    I just bought tickets for the game for me and my wife. We will be up for enjoying some pre-game drinks near the arena. I took my daughter to Purdue for a college tour. We were impressed by the school. West Lafayette, not so much. I asked my Purdue alum friends where to go and they suggested...

    OT: Pitino fired

    Pitino the younger will be the assistant head coach of whichever school is desperate enough to hire slick Rick. Again, I'm picking Indiana. Slick Rick will turn any team around in two years and the younger will be able to take a much better HC job than NMex.

    High class, high character

    And many on the Boneyard are convinced that Illinois paid Kofi and Memphis paid Precious. When a school misses out on a prized recruit the fans default reasoning is another school paid them off. Yet, when their school is accused of the same offense the response is "nope, we are just excellent...

    Iona Wins

    I don't want to start a new thread but I was wondering where Yarders think Pitino will be coaching next year. I think he will not be staying at Iona. He's had success in the BE, ACC, and SEC. I'm thinking Indiana might be tired of irrelevance and Pitino can have a chance to be the top dog in...

    Our Resume Is Set, What's Our Seed?

    If we get a 6 seed I think seeing the second weekend is realistic. If we get a 7 or 8 seed I don't like our chances of making the second weekend. UConn is a very good team but not a top tier team. I like Hurley, I think he has us headed in the right direction, but this team doesn't have the...

    DePaul's next head coach?

    @superjohn, just change your OP to DePaul's possible next head coach and start your first sentence with I've heard from a reliable source that DL is getting fired. We would still be able to engage in the same conversation. If DL is fired Moser would seem to be a good fit. I wonder if a P5...

    OT Running

    Just got my first run of the year in yesterday. The run felt surprisingly good. We got a Peloton bike and I've got about 20 rides under my belt and that has helped in getting me back in some type of running shape. Last night I told my kids to start training for a half marathon. I'm 58 and...
