    What are the chances that the Big East and Kansas did have those preliminary discussions? We should be going after Kansas.

    Men’s lax and women’s golf are the 2 conference sponsored sports where UConn doesn’t participate.

    Will the Big East add a 12th School

    He’s clearly talking about hoops and March Madness. oof. Scooter is intentionally off base and bb can’t follow along.

    Will the Big East add a 12th School

    Yes, bad takes. Or factually incorrect, if you prefer. “Villanova and a bunch of teams that flame out in The first weekend of the tourney doesn’t equal a P6 league.” Do I need to count the ways? Is UConn too good for the Big 10 too?

    Will the Big East add a 12th School

    It’s remarkable that you speak out on so many topics and are so consistently wrong. There are 2 explanations, of course, including that your bad takes are intentional.

    Upstate also has its homegrown talent, and it’s at all college levels. Cuse, Ithaca, Cortland, Hobart, Nazareth, Colgate, Le Moyne... not to mention it’s Iroquois history.

    If you think upstate NY is an outlier to the lacrosse footprint, I don’t know what to say.

    OT: Fixing a golf slice?

    My grip advice would be firm with the left hand. This is in the fingers and palm, but not in the wrist or forearm. A neutral grip has the “Vs” of your thumb pointing to your shoulders, up your arms. Left V to left shoulder, Right V to right shoulder. A “strong” grip rotates the left hand “a...

    OT: Fixing a golf slice?

    Once you groove the swing line, try keeping a 3/4 swing. Instead of a full arc, swing a little stronger on the down stroke from the 3/4. Slow measured back swing, strong left hand grip, strong swing through the ball. You will get the distance with clean contact on the 3/4 swing and you will...

    No, lax does not generate enough income to cover expenses. It takes alumni to step up and fund the program. It’s a talent rich region and a good conference. The AD should rally local supporters to fund it.

    The 2009 game was a semifinal game, and the reference wasn’t necessary. PTSD was cured in 2016, mostly.

    What about lacrosse? Why no lacrosse? The Northeast is ripe with talent. The Big East is a good lacrosse conference. Why no lacrosse?

    OT: Fixing a golf slice?

    It’s simple in concept, but retraining muscle memory takes repetition. One helping hint is the short swing. Even in your yard, do those half swings or even quarter swings. Get that swing motion over the second tee. When it becomes comfortable and repeatable, expand the swing.

    Jake - don’t buy into this. The fix is simple. There are so many approaches and “tricks” to fix this common problem that it makes it feel complicated. It isn’t. Keep it simple!

    OT: Fixing a golf slice?

    Here is a visual. I’m assuming your slice comes from the left path above. Outside-in. The right path above is inside-out. I placed a yellow dot where you want to place that 2nd Tee. Just swing over the first tee and tick that 2nd tee with your club head as you pass over it. This is a very...

    OT: Fixing a golf slice?

    Keep it simple. The first response from businesslawyer is spot on. Closing the club face is an easy fix, so let’s assume your swing has to adjust from outside-in to more insideout. Go to a range where you can tee up in natural grass. Tee up your ball. Then take another Tee and, on a...

    OT: Objectively one of the more boring championship games of the past 25 years?

    Hmmm, I was into this game. Baylor was incredible, yet the Zags cut it to 10 at the half. It was still a game. The second half felt like a strangle. Baylor matched every little run. It was an entertaining game even though the game wasn’t close for most of the 2nd half.

    Gonzaga was not physically gassed from a game 2 nights earlier. These are young and highly conditioned athletes. Recovery over 48 hours is not an issue.

    1. Basketball is UConn's identity with a rebuilding Blue Blood Men's program and a Dynasty Women's program. The Big East is a better basketball conference than the American. 2. Football in the American was a bust. The shotgun footprint without real rivalries was a recruiting disadvantage. 3...

    Was 2009 the last year of great college basketball teams?

    I don’t think that’s how KenPom ratings work. I think they are a relative comparison within a season. I don’t think the numbers are meaningful to compare across different seasons.
