    I heard from my father that someone was on WFAN this week ripping on the UConn decision for Edsall 2.0. He wasn't sure who it was, anyone catch it? Was it Gresh filling in?

    A lot of fans are. The predominant reaction to his hire was are you @#$% kidding me. That sucks.

    Somehow, I don't trust that you're an accurate barometer of the fanbase.

    You'd be surprised. Plenty of folks not named TDH, have been WTF'ing this hire. They already had enough of the Edsall playbook: run right, run left, run up the middle, punt. This hire was "just settling", same as the hire of Pasqualoni.

    So if the people who paid Diaco's buyout did so only on the condition they hire Randy, do you tell them to go pound sand?

    A lot of fans were excited about the Bob Diaco hire and look how that turned out.

    This may come as a surprise, but fans don't always know what is best for a program/team. We can all state our opinions - and that's fine - but at the end of the day, nobody knows how something will turn out until it turns out.

    I think 100% of the UConn fanbase is excited about firing Bob Diaco. Getting rid of him was an important step 1 to getting UConn football back on track again. Whoever chipped in to pay off that ridiculous buyout should have a very big say in the next hire. End of story.

    Yes, if it's not UConn. Benedict had the option of retaining Diaco for another year or can him and get Edsall back at a decent price. He took the latter. He had nothing to do with it. He's done zero as AD.

    It is a bit of a WTF hire, but you need to provide another reasonable, better option before you have a right to be angry about it. I guarantee that I can shoot down any other name you put up.

    Lol, he's like what 20 or 21? I'm sure he gets out more than vast majority of the old farts on this board.

    You know Subba, the more I think about it the more I don't think it is a WTF hire. It facilitates the end of the Diaco era. The price is right, given our circumstances, and I'm not sure we could do much better, again given our circumstances. He's the best game day coach we've had here in 6 years and his ability to get people to NFL is proven.

    I never hated the Edsall hiring, but I'm warming up to it more and more as I think about the pros/cons.

    The BY, home of the most dedicated fans of the program and longtime season ticket holders, seems to be resoundingly okay with it. I trust them more than those pining for the next Tom Herman to walk in the door and turn us into Alabama.

    All while still making the time to go to PAWS-ARF and see this team almost lose to Maine and get their doors blown off by Tulane!
