All kidding aside, the longer this lingers, it absolutely will have a negative impact on recruiting.

My point exactly. This needs to be dealt with and put to bed ASAP. Which I'm sure is the plan.

We don't control when it's going to be put to bed. It's going to linger.

We're now going to get recruits at the level of program that Randy Edsall recruited us at.

Do you not even care when you do that you're trashing the players that have accomplished what we've accomplished as a program the last four years?

Is it you don't get that or you're angry so trashing our players is o.k.

I like that for a 4 star player you put 4**** and 3 star you put 3***. By saying 4 or 3, you eliminate the need to actually type out the proper amount of *'s :p

I'm sure the news of the past couple day is doing wonders.......
I wouldn't start selling short Coach PP's ability to recruit, especially in state, just yet because of what's happening to the BE. Even with this saddled around his neck, Coach PP IMO is light years ahead of FHCRE in recruiting. A lot of recruits might view UCONN's desire to leave the BE at all costs as a positive.

I'd say it's mostly anger. Him actively not trying to win games against legitimately good teams is another part of it.

Recruiting is about the individual institution and what an individual can become and do at that institution. It's about academics. It's about being given an opportunity to succeed and build a foundation for a life through athletics and academics. Pasqualoni knows this. The rest of the staff knows this. The kids we've recruited in the past, were recruited this way. The kids we'll recruit in the future are going to be recruited this way.

I would hope that any of our recruits are wise enough in their young ages, or if they're not, they've got somebody to point out to them, the things that our leaders at the University have said and are doing regarding this whole conference mess.

The focus, is and always be, on what's best for the university, and what's best for the university when it comes to athletics, right now is what's best for student-athlete. The univesity will take it's time in doing what's best.

There are a lot more sports involved in what's going on, than just football.

Who and where we play?

Relevant, but nearly important in recruiting as the other stuff.

I like what the Godfather said, "I'll never back down from a challenge, line em up, whoever they are, wherever they are, let's play."

That's the attitude we've had, that we've got right now, and that's the attitude we'll continue to have.

And the recruits will continue to come, and we'll continue to work harder to building a solid recruiting structure and base to feed our football program, and so will the other sports on campus.

The University of Connecticut is going to be a top level institution, regardless of what's happening in the intercollegiate athletic environment.

"Him actively not trying to win games against legitimately good teams is another part of it". Are you serious? I'd love to know what your background in football is.
