Per the article:
"If the Huskies can't win this game by double digits, the problems are even worse than I thought. Give me UConn and the reasonable chalk, as this is a game the home team should cruise."

Haven't seen RI but given what I've seen from UConn I'd just like to see a game that looks like UConn knows what to do each play, doesn't telegraph it's scheme on each offensive and defensive play and is competitive physically with RI. Cruising, hmmmmm, pass the pipe!
But this is a game where we should out play the opponent in trenches on both sides of the ball....and if that is not apparent in the first half, it should be in the second half.....if not, the staff was fooling itself with the off season lifting program.

I feel like we will win but not as handily as we would like. Who knows really? The first two blood baths told us very little about this team. URI isn't a horrific team, but it is a team that we, even as young as we are, should beat comfortably. We'll know more about where we stand after this game.

I don't understand. Because URI doesn't have an off season lifting program?

Maybe we can find a way to get the ball on short throws to Dixon and let his speed do the rest? He is a threat on KO return but with him and Hergy on the field at the same time who does the defense double? If both it should open up other options.

I'm curious what we can do when we aren't physically over matched. In a lot of ways this game is like the first game of the season. We should have a much better understanding of what we have.
