    Joe Moorhead?

    People act like we were double dip paying. We weren’t. The money was paid to diaco. We accounted for that money up until now for accounting purposes. that does not mean the money is now freed up.

    Joe Moorhead?

    I predict the coach gets $1.5 M. That's a good sum for everyone but high level FBS coordinators.

    Joe Moorhead?

    Essentially, yes. I hope they go to $2M or more and get the guy they want. But all evidence is that the university and athletic department has tried to hold the line on spending for football. They didn't even have enough money to renovate locker rooms at burton. Randy raised that money himself...

    Joe Moorhead?

    CL82, that is $350M for the entire university. That isn't for the athletic department. They are getting squeezed and penny-pinched. They have debt service, Covid-19 issues, I don't even want to go into it. Athletics takes $40M a year in institutional support. They probably want to cut that in...

    Joe Moorhead?

    They have a $40M dollar budget gap. Now, we all know that a lot of that is internal charges and charge offs, but revenue has cratered and the program has a lot of money tied up in leaving AAC and entering Big East. The revenue from football has cratered over the years. Even at $5 tickets they...

    Joe Moorhead?

    That's a great question. UConn pays basketball coaches much more money including assistant basketball coaches more than football assistants. That's the crux of the issue in Storrs. Randy, is that you? LOL. Been a problem for a long time. Randy had to give back salary to get John Dunn a raise.

    Joe Moorhead?

    You have to read the room. No money for anything right now . they have some leeway for a coach, but they aren’t going to massively increase how much they pay a coach with the headwinds they have budget wise.

    UConn doesn't have the money to do this.

    Post Mortem Army

    I am gonna be honest here, the QB looked like a dangerous and explosive player. That is much better than how Zergiotis and Krajewski looked. Tyler P Needs to work on his throwing of the ball out of the pocket and they need to learn about what arm strength he has and hasn’t. But Do read option...

    Oh man. The entire university infrastructure hated him.

    Joe Moorhead?

    Hunch. I just don’t see with their budget how they can go into the $2m range. It will be a fiasco. Interim president, Board an issue, gadflys who don’t like football, basketball people in administration and university who are bent out of shape that basketball isn’t the no. 1 priority of the...

    Joe Moorhead?

    Lol. The next head coach will get $1.5 —- max. Assistant pool will probably be around $2M. If they could go $3m for a coach, and say $3-4m for coaches. That would be a pretty good haul. think about this. The men’s and women’s top basketball assistant coaches all make more than any other coach...

    Just left the Rent

    Agree here. There are garbage programs from podunk schools that perform better. This is getting to be a bit much. It isn’t embarrassing. It is criminal.

    Just left the Rent

    I don’t understand this. 85 scholarships. top flight nutrition and schooling. There is no reason for this level of struggle. Absolutely no reason that players aren’t developing. It is ok to lose, even get blown out. But this is getting. Ridiculous. especially after a year off. I bet...

    Let UConn football be bad (Hearst Editorial)

    That Towson game makes no sense. Just a bad performance by Paul and the team. That was a 6 win team, minimum, but didn’t fire.

    Let UConn football be bad (Hearst Editorial)

    PP struggled with disciplining kids. He treated them like professionals and was just interested in coaching football, none of the other stuff. He loved being in the NFL BTW. He never talked about his Syracuse years privately, only his NFL years. Always found that odd. The dude also won five...

    DiMauro at it again…

    Not overblown, at least back then. There were guys that Randy recruited back in 2000s that UConn wouldn't touch late in his first tenure. Before UConn recruits a player and offers, they check out his grades and academics etc. That's contingent on the offer and if they are going to get denied...

    DiMauro at it again…

    Basketball was/is treated differently. They ask for one or two admissions. Football?? They are asking for many more. This was one of the touchpoints way back when. Not sure how it is now. Funny thing is when Pasqualoni took over they relaxed the standards for him. Even then, Paul was trying to...

    Let UConn football be bad (Hearst Editorial)

    The shut it down people are not rationale. You don't take wins or losses and decide to shut it down. You can make a monetary case to shutter football, but there is no monetary case for FCS. So it becomes football vs. no football. At UConn's size, school profile and success as an athletic...

    Edsall stepping down immediately

    JC was passive-aggressive. How you may ask? The Burton Family Football Complex was built in 2006. The first time JC ever stepped foot in that building was Warde Manuel's press conference introducing him as the new AD. That's about as passive-aggressive as you can get. He called it the Taj Mahal...

    Your Plans Next Weekend

    I am sorry, if it is nice out i am going to the game. College football in the late summer un new england and Purdue visting East Hartford. Just want to see good football, not 60-3, i think i will be happy. Just be competitive and try and steal one at Army the following week, perhaps.

    Edsall stepping down immediately

    This is aggravating. The joke about 15 years ago was that the men’s team hated football, women’s team hates the men’s team and that football hated everyone. I gotta blame a lot of the very old media for this many many moons ago. Calhoun was always miffed how much we spent on football (stadium...

    LOL. I am part Italian, qualify for citizenship! Yes, Italians love to know your business. I cackled at work when I read this. Nothing is more satisfying to an Italian women than to gossip about the neighbor.

    Edsall stepping down immediately

    That is an excuse. Went from Dallas to Miami. That isn't a road trip. Probably didn't like the weather or the people/culture. That is fine. People mistake the reserved New Englander as rude/snotty. In fact, we are just more private than they are down south. New Englanders are very respectful...

    Edsall stepping down immediately

    I don't know what I would have done. But I am not getting paid for that job. He is responsible for budget, revenue, marketing and performance. I wouldn't frame it as blame, I would be curious about how much they missed their targets by. Neutral wasn't going to happen. But there is no way...

    We disagree here. Has done good. But the budget deficit and football are an anchor. He has spent a lot of money to get where we are.

    Edsall stepping down immediately

    This hurts the entire AD department. Have to be on the same darn page with your coach. On second thought, get your ass out of here? Then Feldman, who invisibly talked to someone in the program, said there were fireworks behind the scenes. I love Bruce, but what kind of fireworks? You can’t say...

    Edsall stepping down immediately

    Also. None of these releases leave the door without AD looking at them. On Sunday he said one thing, Monday did another. Doesnt inspire confidence here. I don’t care if you eventually got to the right decision, this is a PR debacle

    Edsall stepping down immediately

    Here is the thing. They put out official releases and statements yesterday. Those people work for the AD, not the football team. So, 24 hours later things change. Who is in control here?
