    Worth a click:

    >>By my count, 11 players on UConn's 2014 team - a roster that former coach Bob Diaco managed to squeeze one whole win against a Football Bowl Subdivision team - have taken part or will take part in NFL training camps (not including tryouts at rookie camps).

    S Andrew Adams: Started 13 games and had 46 tackles as a rookie with New York Giants
    DT Kenton Adeyemi: Signed as free agent in 2016 by Chicago and then Cleveland
    WR Geremy Davis: Former sixth-round pick by New York Giants had two catches in 10 games in 2016, now on Los Angeles Chargers' roster
    WR Deshon Foxx: Current on New York Jets roster, previously with Seattle
    CB John Green: Signed as free agent by Tennessee Titans
    DB Byron Jones: Starting safety for Dallas Cowboys who had 88 tackles in second NFL season
    OT Andreas Knappe: Currently on Atlanta's 90-man roster
    OT Richard Levy: Currently on San Francisco's 90-man roster
    DL B.J. McBryde: Spent team either on the roster or practice squad with Philadelphia, Green Bay and San Franisco
    S Obi Melifonwu: Second-round pick of Oakland Raiders
    WR Noel Thomas: Signed as a free agent by Detroit

    Also, defensive lineman Mikal Myers (Baltimore), kicker Bobby Puyol (Baltimore) and cornerback Jhavon Williams (New Orleans) got looks in rookie camp as did Reuben Frank with Detroit in 2015 while a talented group of seniors, who were freshmen on the 2014 team, figure to add to that list in 2018.<<

    That is the biggest indictment on that clown right there. It also answers 3 questions:

    1) Edsall can recruit (the first 4 names are his)
    2) Contrary to some popular belief, Pasqualoni can recruit (the rest of the guys are his) but couldn't coach.
    3) Diaco might have been the worst head coach in Division 1 history...

    Don't you know that the cupboard is always bare at UConn? That's the problem ask any of the beat writers.

    By "he", I am assuming you are referring to Diaco.

    While we pretty much know that he could not recruit at the level that Edsall or PP could, I think that he did find some gems. Probably because he got some of these kids to fall for his bull in a similar way to how he got administrators to fall for his bull...
