I hope that these writers start to think for themselves a bit. Recruiting is the only thing we've got to look forward to. It was a positive article, but it still irks me to listen to anything the FNG coach says. My guess is it took the feedback from the more recent piece for the writer to realize, that maybe talking about anything other than recruiting is not a good idea.
UCONN fans want winners. That's it.
I won at breakfast today. I'm going to win at doing some real work that pays my bills today too. Coach Bobby is getting paid to build a winner on the football field, and do it the right way. Results to date, are not good.
I was reading through some tweets last night online random UConn stuff, was actually looking for hockey info. Shane Stafford was tweeting like crazy during the NCG, and put out one that stuck me. Duke football won 9 games last season and went to a bowl game and had 72 players on the roster with a GPA of 3.0 or above.
I rarely cross over UCONN basketball success with football, two entirely different sports and ways to do things, but it's ironic how the universe works. Jim Calhoun was very, very adamant and open about wanting to model, emulate and create the success of Mike Krzyzewski's Duke program, going back to when he was just starting in the 1980s. Diaco would be smart, to look at what a coach like Cutcliffe at Duke is doing with a program, and go with that. Smart to look at a program like Stanford on the west coast, which is essentially the same. The midwest farmers model, is not going to work in the Northeast corridor of the USA. UCONN stopped being a cow college a long time ago. He's a Jersey kid, DIaco, he can do it. I believe.
Just stop screwing around with the game days and put a disciplined football team on the field that can get play calls in and out, communicate and get lined up within an effective game plan and execute.
I'm out for today boneyarders. Stay warm. Hats and gloves out today.
