I think the only way to bring him to UConn so that he could work immediately was on a consulting contract. Otherwise, you probably have to go through the UConn hiring process which takes some time and UConn needed help immediately.One day. His offer letter was for a one week term 9/14 - 9/20 at which point UConn will either have to clear a spot to add him to the staff (if there isn't one already), sign a new deal with him as an analyst or let him go.
I think with Edsall being relieved of his on field coaching duties, there is an open spot for a new hire if you wanted to permanently hire Mazzone. Watch the UConn job postings.
In the one vid I saw of him throwing, he seemed to be side-arming it. Is that the way he normally throws or is it the result of his recovery? If normal, that negates a lot of being 6-5.Well...Edsall is gone and he is now listed as "or". Feels like there is more of a story here.
I don’t think anyone has seen him throw...so who knows. I wish someone asked spanos if this means Leon isn't limited by injuries...which seemed to be Edsalls feedback on Leon for years.In the one vid I saw of him throwing, he seemed to be side-arming it.

I wonder if SK is bang up a bit. He took some big hits in the Purdue game.I think SK will get the start, he’s just keeping people guessing. With a better game plan, Steve should be a good QB. I could see trying someone else if Steve couldn’t run, but he can, so no reason to give up on him yet.
I agree with everything you said before you got to “cover the spread.” I think the spread has been beaten by halftime every game. I’m not holding my breath for that.Sure, we'll struggle on defense against the Army triple option--even though our safeties and DB's can be re-positioned to offer better run support---and we're very likely to lose---but I'm also betting that SK and the offense will perform better, reduce the turnovers and lead us into the end zone enough times to cover the spread.
