desmondconner 12:11pm via TweetDeck
Diaco on Bryce McAlliser: "knowledge of position is remedial at best." McAllister switched from RB to CB #UConn

"No disciplinary action with Arkeel, he just tightened up. As a young player, there's a mental prep that becomes even greater than physical"

MattSchonvisky 12:14pm via Twitter Web Client
"He didn't practice much heading in, so it didn't look like he was ready to produce Thursday. He's 100%, there was no issue, we tweaked leg"

dcsportsdept 12:14pm via TweetDeck
Diaco said Arkeel Newsome is 100 percent. #UConn

desmondconner 12:14pm via TweetDeck
Diaco on Newsome: "He's 100 percent." No disciplinary issues, tweaked lower leg on campus last week "non-football related" #UConn

MattSchonvisky 12:15pm via Twitter Web Client
"I'm pleased w/all 4 backs, all have roles. Max/Josh had appropriate opp and no real separation. Arkeel/Ron, long term, tilt scale"

NHRJimFuller 12:16pm via TweetDeck
#UConn's Bob Diaco on freshman TBs: "Arkeel and Ron possess high-level tangible talents."

peatonrobb 12:17pm via TweetDeck
Diaco: Arkeel Newsome is healthy. DeLorenzo did not seperate himself at tailback. Newsome and Johnson are "high-level" talents. #UConn

OK, so that sounds pretty definitive.

I don't believe him at all regarding Arkeel.

Why because he completely contradicted himself in 2 sentences?

I'd love to hear the answer to "when did he tighten up?"

Why? He's been pretty straight forward with any other disciplinary items thus far (such as players leaving etc.). In watching the conference he seemed pretty genuine about it vs. other things I've seen before. If I'd say anything, based on his statement about Arkeel practicing and not getting the mental reps and not being able to put the two together as one cohesive piece to be able to be effective, then the only thing I could glean from that is that he didn't play because he didn't practice as hard as perhaps he could have and therefore lost some playing time. But I wouldn't call that disciplinary more than learning.

Because if what he is saying is true then why did he magically appear for a series in the third quarter?

I read that as "tighten up" mentally. Gotta wonder if he was in a freshman "woe is me" mode and became tentative.

Weird that these 'leg' issues lead to the same in game usage patterns....

Yep - but I was taken over the coals when I questioned it. It was coach speak like Belichick and they dont need to reveal issues due to HIPPA...

There are no lower leg issues - thats the 'you are in the dawg house' verbage-
