Anyone else feel like Dom Amore is phoning it in? The Courant's UConn basketball coverage has suffered heavily since Mike Anthony left the beat. It's crap.

And yet everybody and their mother complained about Mike Anthony when he was on the beat.

That's true. I was not one of them. I appreciated his hard work and enjoyed his writing. It's just too bad the Courant couldn't find someone with a little more passion and enthusiasm for the job -- I would imagine it's still a dream job for many, despite the long hours and lousy pay.

Dave Borges and Kevin Duffy (brand new) are the two guys to follow in my opinion.

Thanks, I'll check out Duffy. Borges has been great. The sudden loss of Solomon hurt, too.

Hope the Horde steps its game up come regular season.

Yeah, Amore's 7 sentence on-line article is about the lamest game article from the horde I've ever seen. Was there more than that in the actual paper? Just wondering if the on-line article is not the real article he wrote.

Mike always wrote me back when I emailed him, great to fans... people on the boneyard where not always kind ...

Keefe has had some good articles this season

Amore has to step it up for sure. It what is this whole breaking down the opponents thing? He is on game 21 right now, maybe he should break down the game a little more close to the actual date?!

I don't think Amore wanted this gig, doesn't seem to care in the least. I also admit to badmouthing M Anthony while he was on the beat... Mike, I am sorry. Please come back.

In the meantime, it's Borges.

yes im a borges man. To be 100% honest. I liked Mike Anthony's blog a few years ago when there was actual depth and length to it and it was enjoyable and funny. The last few years its been pretty bare and u can clearly tell he wasnt putting as much effort into it but granted hes got married and didnt have as much time which I understand. But so far Amore really hasnt done that great of a job.

Min-amore needs a fire lit under him. Maybe he should have written about the NFL game he was probably watching.
