Very nice review. I actually thought they were a bit more optimistic than warranted, but I’m sure they haven’t sat through the weekly horror show to a true sense of the challenge. If we get to 4 or 5 Ws that would be massive improvement.

Am I the only one who is surprised that not a single O lineman was among the top 5 offensive players? There goes my one "but at least …" thought about how 2019 UConn might have a better than just ok offense so that it would be hard to get outscored by more than 4 touchdowns a game again by FBS opponents.

You’re not alone. At the recent Fanfest all of the O linemen were visibly bigger and each mentioned how our new strength coach has made them all (surprise) stronger. Matt Peart is ripped and ready. Add in his leadership and he’s definitely one of the top 5 players.

I thought the top 5 was lazy... how do you put two QBs in the top 5? Sure, one of them will be the important offensive player on the team... but the other one is going to be on the sidelines. One of them isn't going to play, they can't both be top 5 players. It would have been much more accurate to put Peart on the list.

Great point, but I would like to add that right now I think Matt Peart is the heart and soul of the offense.

How can this guy name a qb with a 37% completion rate and six turnovers, in limited time, as our #2 offensive player? On top of that, he has a guy who hasn’t even set foot on campus as #5! Is our offense really going to be that bad? I can think of other players (Scott, VanDeMark, Rose) that should be on this list instead of these two guys. Good luck Huskies!
