The cool rivalry trophies aren’t actually trophies, they are items.


I love the idea of an item about the Revolution, CT river valley tobacco history, there have to be enough history professors at these universities to come up with something cool that doesn’t feel like a tacky trophies created at the mall.

How about the Hooker-Puritan Cup....named after both the founders of Connecticut and Massachusetts...

Yeah, every year the southern parallel of the Southwick border moves in feet by the score differential. By example, this year the border would have moved north by 21 feet based on the score of 56-35. Or we could be simpler and just flip flop the entire township every year base on winner.

Still waiting on Jeff Jacobs to use all his influence to get us into the ACC. His plan has been poorly executed

Ambivalent on creating trophies which should just evolve or happen. Best when not Disastro’d.

Don’t care about umess, but their existence enables 1 game late each season when independent scheduling’s more challenging.
Meh. At least this time the other team actually wants it. Incremental progress.

I am more excited about playing UMass than I am about any opponent in the AAC.
Yeah, and if you can get Vermont to reinstate its long defunct football program, you can resurect the old Yankee Conference. Very progressive and wrong thinking.

So they'll be on the schedule every year? Awesome. A legit chance to win a game every season.

They'll probably call it the "U-Game." I envision the trophy to be a thimble or something.
Why? Because UConn couldn't play big boy football? Why not bring back the insignificant (to the college football world) Yankee Conference.

Why not a wrestling belt type of thing with the belt saying,

Obviously pretty crude but it's the idea. I need to buy a good graphics suite.

Hell, we could win in basketball in the American either.

Call it the Connecticut Cup. Connecticut River and western Mass should have been part of Connecticut.

Hooker was a Puritan...
Great....He was also a Hooker.

Just shorten it to the Hooker Cup....have a couple of tight, short skirted workers in 6 inch heals make the presentation.
