    Kevin Freeman stepping down from coaching, but will remain at UConn

    His family just moved back to CT from PA last week. The timing is bizarre

    Tyler Polley’s mercurial UConn career is winding down

    I want Whaley back and I would take Tyler back too if he wanted to stay.

    UConn @ #5/#16 Virginia (Friday 2/19/21 @ 3p > Saturday 2/20/21 @ 1p & Sunday 2/21/20 @ 1p -- All Games streamed on ACC Network Extra/ACCNX)

    Very excited to listen to Chris Jones on the call! Roll Skies! Going to be a great season

    Will Whaley consider returning?

    It is amazing how much he brings to this team emotionally and intangibly. In the pre-season, he mentioned that he would consider a 5th year to have a more "normal" senior season. I know we have Samson coming in next year, but since Javonte transferred and Bouk is likely leaving, we have two open...

    Mike Anthony mentions Sanogo in the 10th paragraph of his game story.

    Anthony has become a mouthpiece for the athletic department. His puff pieces for access are laughable.

    CIAC Winter plan: January 19th start of practice

    What is comical to me is making the kids wear masks while playing, then they all jump in cars and go hangout together after practice with no masks on. Just make them wear them on the bench and anywhere other than when they are on the court or in the game. But again, common sense with the CIAC...

    Vandy out of Legends Classic

    Side note but I wonder if it’s Florida, if they break up the other game to try to set up a UConn - Florida final

    Best High School BB Coach Ever in the State of Connecticut

    Tony Falzarano. Coached at Putnam for 33 years, then coached at Tourtellotte for another 6 years. Two tiny public schools in CT. 609 wins. Won a state title in 1986 and reached two other state finals in 1995 and 2006. What he was able to do, with such little talent in Northeast CT, was amazing.

    Kimani Young named Associate Head Coach

    Getting KFree allowed Hurley to promote and pay raise to Kimani. This would essentially lock him up unless he got a power conference job in my opinion. Nobody was concerned about Tom Moore leaving.

    Question about Online Learning Issue

    I know they're trying their hardest, and it's not ideal cirumstances. But in a normal online class format, email turnaround is much quicker and the classes are more organized. I was just explaining why students are saying online doesn't work as well.

    Question about Online Learning Issue

    Number 1: Over half of the professors don't offer zoom sessions. They just give busy work assignments and due dates. Number 2: A lot of professors are extremely technologically challenged and don't answer emails or messages in a timely manner. (Or post things incorrectly, forget to put things...

    OT: Lack of new UConn Big East gear

    Pretty disappointed with the lack of choices in the UConn Huskies Store given that we were promised new gear on July 1st. Only 1 nike T shirt? No new sweatshirts? The school even said that they didn't drop as much gear last year because they were dropping a lot on July 1st for the return to the...

    Back to School

    I agree with 95% of what you said @M.S.G. However, even at the high school levels in low income communities, it has been difficult for some to get access to the needed materials. Distance learning is not good (we all know this), but it seems like we just asking for trouble sending the kids...

    Back to School

    Honestly, I am starting to get to the point that I feel like the only way we will be able to have college sports this fall/winter is if those players are together without other students on campus. The return to school is asking for Covid spread

    UConn poaches Cincy Strength Coach

    I 100% agree with you. I was just saying it's odd that this hiring came out of the blue without a statement about Sal being let go

    XL Center Planning to Reopen in Fall for Sports

    Will be interesting to see how this plays out, assuming they play. 50% capacity? 25% capacity? Season Ticket Holders only? If season ticket holder # is higher than allowed capacity, how do they divide that up? Lots of questions down the road...

    Best UConn Assistant Coaches

    Was always known as a recruiter, but Andre Lafleur often doesn’t get the love he deserves for reeling in some of those great mid 2000’s players.

    Podcast with John Fanta of the Big East

    To each their own, but I absolutely love John Fanta and his dedication to the Big East. He is very knowledgeable and great at promoting the Big East on social platforms!

    UConn/Temple & UConn/FIU Football Series Announced

    Benedict mentioned before that we may have to have 5 home games once or twice in the first couple of years before we can balance out our schedule consistently. Would not be shocked if 2021 is 5 home games.

    Borges: The anatomy of UConn’s long, winding road back to the Big East Conference

    I said this to @gampelcrazies yesterday, but it is amazing that all the presidents and coaches in the Big East knew this was happening in the winter of 2018-19 and nothing ever leaked. Shows an extremely well run operation in my opinion.
