If we went to the triple option the NCAA would make the rule change about cut blocking that is desperately needed and already in place in the NFL. We would re-work our system and that would force the NCAA's hand. Rule #1.. We'd have another seven years in purgatory recovering...

It certainly feels that way sometimes.

So, if we hired the Squid to be our basketball coach, would the NCAA look the other way? I often wonder if the NCAA looks the other way for the school, coach or both. If Calipari is bulletproof at UK, is he bulletproof here?

How about Coach K? If he left Duke and came to UConn would he still be allowed to cheat? Not sure who has the personal equity to cheat vs which schools have it. I suspect K could cheat here, but Calipari couldn’t. Just a guess.

What would have been more ideal is if we could have run the same offense we had last season but complimented it with a defense that could force an occasional punt or two. Randy needed to hold a bake sale and a car wash to keep Dunn here though and that was just too much for the UConn budget.
