    AAC basketball post UConn?

    ...but the AAC, actually buoyed by a F4 team, is a far cry from this "non-elite" conf, in prestige, bid quality, essentially everything. How can you explain that without hacking your stupid "ZBE" nonsense to pieces? You're the delusional one here, pining for re-entry to ye olde CUSA.

    UConn Football adds H/H with UAB (2024/2025)

    Correct. I'm also wondering if UAB's non-conf just lost a game 👀

    Ha. Tulane smoked us last time we played. And, uh, Birmingham <<<<<< NOLA. Come on.

    I openly wonder how many were walking into the stadium for the first time. Sigh.

    OT: Hartford Athletics Possible Drop to D3

    LOL - so every other university in existence investing in "STEM" isn't doing the same exact thing? Come on. Again, you're smarter than this.

    OT: Hartford Athletics Possible Drop to D3

    Come on. How many business majors actually have interest in accounting? How many engineers for calculus? How many sane people had an interest in what was Chem 127 many years ago? Shoot - how many law school people get a JD to go into Politics? (coughChrisMurphycough) You're smarter than...

    OT: Hartford Athletics Possible Drop to D3

    As the husband of a brilliant nurse who would have run academic circles around me (and still would), and went to Fairfield - go find a cinder block and a lake.

    OT Rangers-Caps fight

    Rangers just fined 250k for this statement. I hope Dolan refuses to pay. Ridiculous.

    OT: Underrated US Cities

    All legit. I'll take Joseph's Steakhouse over pretty much anywhere else in CT, too. The ethnic food bit is legit, too. Only Bridgeport could have somewhere like Bloodroot - it's awesome.

    OT Rangers-Caps fight

    The Rangers have basically called the NHL discipline guy a goon, and a goon supporter. Fantastic.

    Latest Hockey Arena Update (Approved)

    Mansfield wanted to keep the bucolic tenement-style housing of the Mansfield Apartments, due to an adjacent nature preserve. https://whus.org/2015/12/proposed-ice-rink-highlights-uconn-mansfield-tensions/

    Latest Hockey Arena Update (Approved)

    Yes. Not my term to take credit for, either - it's the stock name for Mansfield in the CT legislature, per my comm sci class many years ago :)

    Uh, no. BS. They had to wait because the PRM wouldn't let them build where they wanted to. Ironic, isn't it? The size was impacted by you!

    Rocket Watts?

    More a trait. There is absolutely some coyness on here. Especially when dealing with the horde, which drives them all crazy.

    On what planet is Carmel underrated? I would move there tomorrow, if i could afford it.

    OT: Cord Cutters

    Spectrum is "OK" but highly local-system dependent. In my experience, it's the worst of cable providers, but better than any reasonable DSL alternative.

    OT: Best Pizza in CT

    Willi would be the best pizza place in at least 42 states. It's not New Haven, but it's not trying to be.

    Latest Hockey Arena Update (Approved)

    Right - i don't consider any of these "local" to Storrs, at least not by comparison to SHU and most of my list there. You can draw a 10-15 mile circle from SHU and hit more rinks than you can in your 30-45 min list for Storrs.

    Latest Hockey Arena Update (Approved)

    1) Why are you ticked about this? It's an asset for Snorrs? 2) Not a great answer, but rinks, more than probably any other university athletic property, are more self-fulfilling. UConn has more wiggle room here than SHU. SHU has, within a short distance: 2 in Bridgeport, Harbor Yard, a 3rd...

    Were injuries the biggest factor in the 2021 disappointment?

    OT: Question for TV Streaming fanatics

    aaaaand @upstater i just realized the "upgrade" you're being whined at is probably NBCSN moving to the peacock app, which I'm assuming wouldn't need new hardware at all. same option 4 applies though :)

    OT: Question for TV Streaming fanatics

    to answer your question - no - not aware of any wifi 6 streamers. You have 3 options: 1) Forget about wifi 6 - streaming won't come close to saturating even a good AC network, much less an AX one. Is the old firestick a non-4k one? If so, just get the 4k one, assuming it satisfies whatever...
