LOL! No one can give an update on how the players are practicing who's improved etc.. By this time in the past we'd have multiple updates from many different posters. Now the team seems to be playing in an off campus FBI guarded building and no one will mention a thing??? I don't care about who our best worst players are of all time, what TV show Boo Willingham is watching or even worse, what celebrity is following Joan Rivers out the door--give me some mutha fcking updates about basketball:) no not Old Lyme high school---Uconn 2014-2015 !!!

And we thought the new practice facility would be a good thing!
HA!
Little did we know that it would herald a new era of no access to practices and no info leakage.

Sometimes after drinking too much wine, I wake up in the middle of the night feeling like Mel Gibson being Gulaged in Beyond Thunderdome. That is how I feel about no news lately. I'm very thirsty.

I think this is more a reflection on the poor coverage by CT reporters than anything. We also had 2 big time recruits on campus this weekend and not a peep out of any of them.

Need a basketball beat writer from the Boneyard, kind of how there's one on the football side.

The media doesn't have access to the informal practices or recruits while they're on campus.

You can't just walk into Gampel and see scrimmages anymore.

Fishy, can't you fix this? Get yourself an invite to the practice facility and set up a disguised camera that can show 24/7 video from the practice court (without anyone noticing). It's doable for our "Cruise Director."

Dom got that one article on Facey at Gampel before they went into the new facility for pick up. I don't see why that can't happen more often.

I tried to infiltrate the team by pretending I was their new wing recruit from Kazakhstan, but the ruse fell apart when I couldn't figure out how to lace up my high-tops.

There is a new philosophy with press. The days of Calhoun open door policy is changing from what I hear

Seems to me that would go hand in hand with a recruit from Kazakhstan?

I'm hearing Justin Brown is much improved and could be a starter...
According to Calhoun he put on 35 lbs of muscle in off season

Clarke loved the visit - should be committing any day now and Briscoe put us back on his list and set an official visit. Only in my dreams - right?

hey big fish: next time bring your u.s. keds or p.f. flyers and you will not have such probs

on serious note: all of current roster went pro in Karrochisten where the big bucks are and no ncaa slave drivers

hence no current or future reports of practice drills or what they like on the new unlimited meal plan and club forfeits 14-15 slate due to lacks of clones

I think you were exactly the specimen they had in mind when they invented velcro fasteners. Use them.

Hamilton's AAU coach:
@trigonis30: Hearing my guy Daniel Hamilton has been killing so far at UConn. I expect him to be 1 of the nation's biggest impact freshmen in 2014-15
Thanks 3- that was like reading a novel about the team given the lack of news these days. We are UCONN not Apple- leak some news already!
