I heard his exit has more to do with an off field issue and not with UConn football. The situation is unfortunate because he showed potential and was poised to get a lot of snaps in the final two seasons with us.There might not be any football this year. He should stay and work on his skills
It certainly begs the question as to why he was granted the honor, unless the off field issue Exit 4 referenced came later and became the reason for leaving.Given the fact Keyshawn Paul was excited after being granted the honor of wearing #6 this season, his is an interesting departure.
The transfer floodgate has opened at the time one is normally focused with football on the field. The wisdom of not playing football and the mounting casualties behind that move is playing out as Chief feared. You just can’t have The Grind since 7/1 and the perception no one is fighting for you. Maybe it’s time for older coaches, who may feel medically vulnerable, to retire or take sabbaticals?Geesh. We gotta build some veteran leadership on the back end of our D. Can't keep losing kids that are halfway and more developed.
Good point. A strong DL that can pressure a QB can mask an inexperience secondary. I think next year we'll see a stark improvement on the lineMore concerned about putting pressure on opposing Qbs. Edsall historically had very good DEs. Need that position group to advance the most. Teams were often double teaming the tackles because they could afford it.
