#UConn coach Bob Diaco said Jefferson Ashiru didn't want to be on team any longer and "I wish him the best."

EdDaigneault 12:27pm via TweetDeck
Diaco said Ashiru decided to leave the team. It was not Diaco's decision.

MattSchonvisky 12:27pm via Twitter Web Client
"Jefferson [Ashiru] decided he didn't want to be on team anymore, I wish him the best, he's bright and hope he finds what situation he likes

Well that is different than what the unnamed source said - I know it doesnt matter - unless you are Jefferson Ashiru.

'UConn officials said that Ashiru left the team after losing interest in playing' should have said UConn officials said that Ashiru left the team after losing interest in playing for this coaching staff.

Is this that thing we do to keep the competition on their heels - competitive advantage I think it was called?

Some introspection and self-evaluation that's honest? He's got that going for him.

Finally admitting that he isn't running anything near what he wants to run? That's fair too.

Acknowledging the on field product has been tough for the fans? Nice touch.

I actually feel good overall.

We should remind him that no matter how tough it is right now, it's not over til we say it's over.

After all, it wasn't over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.

But one thing that perplexed me was offensive scheme. Someone asked me on radio what they run on offense, and I didn't know.

JohnFSilver 2:46pm via Twitter Web Client
Diaco explained what they are and wanted to be. Huskies were 2 TEs, run ball and chuck it deep beginning of year. Are shotgun 3 WRs now.

JohnFSilver 2:47pm via Twitter Web Client
The team had to alter to prevent sacks, turnovers etc. Right now, quick sideline passing game is what they run. Few shots down field.

JohnFSilver 2:48pm via Twitter Web Client
That won't be what Huskies run in 2015. Offense now is still evolving heavily. Desire is to be "heavy." Personnel right now more spread.

JohnFSilver 2:48pm via Twitter Web Client
Also, the passing game has stayed out of the middle to avoid INTs, and haven't gone deep to avoid sacks. Yards hard to come by.

JohnFSilver 2:49pm via Twitter Web Client
That's where the offense is now.

JohnFSilver 3:01pm via Twitter for iPhone
Also, Huskies have to rebuild Qb position in recruiting. Boyle, Shirrefs, davis next year. Need 1 more for 2015. 1 in 2016 too.

Somebody tell Timmy Boyle to put the offense up for sale on EBay. Cheap.
