I love the noon games on weekends. Get in, get out doesn't blow up the whole day.

I agree with this, but the team usually struggles in them. I'd prefer, I dunno, 3 PM tipoff?

95% of the issue is infrastructure. I say its time to force the issue.
Huh? You're saying build a 16K arena on campus and when only the same 10K that show up now attend it will spur the state to build a new road? Do I have that right?

You mean going to a game isn't the highlight of your day?

Is the highlight but I still have other that needs to get done.

If you think only 10k will go to games on campus with a bigger arena then you have a really low opinion of the program.

Well there are plenty of games where they don't get 10k on campus now. So why would that change?

My buddy at the Temple game was like "what do you think? 8k 9k people?" I think he thought we were at Gample.

Unlike you, I go to all the games. I know you aren't getting more than 10K up there against the Centrals of the world. That Detroit game last year, maybe 5K.

The 11 AM start is so that they can get the place ready for UCONN v. UMASS/Lowell hockey at 7PM tomorrow night.

Isn't everybody going to that game??? You should know this.

I work for a living, so I won't apologize that my schedule precludes me from having season tickets. Why can't Uconn act like Kentucky, UNC, MSU and all the other big time programs people complain they aren't compared to? Buildup of Storrs Center will transform the area to the point where, yes, we CAN expect a local base that can support big crowds for even bad ooc games.

Play. On. Campus. Remember what the U in UConn stands for. And stop whining about traffic and sack up.

Hold on. You don't even go to the games but lecture others on why they should invest an extra 90 min - 2 hours going to games?

Of course I should have anticipated that.

I go to 10-12 games a year. It's as many as I can. If I didn't work nights/weekends, I'd go to more. For chrissakes, I did an entire vacation around a road UCF game last year.

That the school should build it's own 16,000-seat arena on campus.


Please, please please. Not another thread about a larger arena on campus. Funny thing, I didn't hear our beloved Governor talk yesterday about the need for a new stadium on campus. Give it up already. With the state facing $1 billion deficits in the next few years, it just isn't going to happen.

Just because it's unlikely does not preclude me from bitching about it. There is nothing more Connecticut than bitching about a problem that won't get fixed.
