I think Dom sits on his column until we get on him. This isn't the first time he's immediately responded.

Am I missing something? Where's the "salvo"/"immediate response"?

But anyway, super excited to see an improved Omar. I hope I drive a lot of people crazy when I'm yelling OMAAAAARRR at the bar as he sinks threes like I did NEEEEEIIIIILLLSSS this last year.

I admit I'm not a big Calhoun fan but love the story and determination. Hope he becomes our Giffey/Kromah in the future.

just a lil joke...Dom follows up a "who is the worst UConn reporter" thread on the boneyard aimed at him with a great read on Omar.

Makes you wonder if we ever had a player with so much to prove as Omar. If he can deliver ain't no stopping us.

I hope he gets the loudest of cheers on First Night!

Wouldlove to see 20 mpg 8 ppg 40% from 3. I think he can fill a hole, perimeter shooting. We lost 4 great perimeter shooters. I think were going to be more of a transition scoring team this year.

Yeah his 3 point shooting needs to come back to in the mid-to-high 30's in % and also needs to rebound and defend a little to get minutes back. I think the minutes are going to vary for guys like Omar, TSam, Cassell Jr, Facey and Lubin based on game to game match ups and performances. I would expect them all to be 8-16 minute guys depending on their play on certain nights.......I doubt any get 20 minutes too often.........

Of course if Rock gets triple digit boards he's playing a lot! ;)

Leave Dom alone..the main thing here is how can you not root for Omar to have a great year?


I've been a huge Omar fan and appreciate his loyalty…Dom not so much. It's pathetic that we have to praise Dom for doing his freaking job once in a blue moon.

I hope that he returns to form. He seems like a good kid.

Don't know anyone who isn't rooting hard for OC's success this year. I appreciate how and am impressed with how he handled last year. I wouldn't have handled it that well.

I think he starts but the 3-hole ultimately becomes a time share with Hamilton.

Well his hips are clearly healed based on his time in the Husky Run.

I really hope Omar has a breakout year and helps the team in whatever way possible. But I also hope DHam is our starter because if he's not we're not going to be as good as we should be. DHam's size and ability to create off the dribble will be important to the overall effectiveness of this offense and Boats ability to be a real good PG. And DHam seems to be able to rebound effectively - I know we haven't seen anything yet but we need I'm to be as good as advertised or close eventually.

Hamilton may end up with more minutes by season's end, but Calhoun is probably the starter to begin the year, based solely on experience.
