The freshmen were looking for ways to make Contessa look a bit more human.
"Can we put a wig on her?" Camp asked.
"How about a Connecticut jersey?" Tucker replied.

Glad to see nothings changed. Everyone wants to beat Connecticut.

I was thinking along the same lines. Given Contessa's height a Baylor jersey might be more appropriate. But glad to see UConn is still on their mind.

that's pretty cool. makes total sense to use her. i wonder if they have male practice players who are taller. i'm pretty sure UCONN could easily find (if they don't already have them) male practice players who are 6'5" or so. of course, they'd need a taller one to simulate Griner...

They have CD The Elder and her broom.

Seriously? i'd actually pay money to see that...
Oh, yeah, Eric. Heard about that years ago - maybe in "The Same River Twice". CD holds up a broom, and the posties gotta shoot over it, etc., Of course, Contessa's limited mobility doesn't remind me of UConn players, so, I wouldn't use a Husky Jersey. Maybe a Duke Jersey from Alison Bale's freshman year (she improved a lot over her time there). Any other nominees, folks?

Huh! Contessa may be big, but she couldn't guard a chair! Bring her on!

Yup, it goes that far back and further. I used to use it with the kids I coached with my youngest brother.

Male icebear average 8'6" and 900 pounds, but are up to 11'6' and 1200 when standing upright. Needless to say they are very difficult to move off the block in the post. The females are up to 8' tall and 600 pounds and are much meaner.

Ice, What is the biggest bear that you have ever seen? In Connecticut where there are alot of black bears, a 450 pounder was on my deck!

Story from last season: Stanford did have a male practice player who was 6'8". At one point Tara forgot his name and just called him "Brittney".

I bet that caused him issues at the frat house.
