    Syracuse DI Hockey?

    This came up before at Syracuse…nothing really came of it. Doubt anything will now or in the near future. As to Hockey East, no thank you. It is the New England league. If we need a new member, find one here. If I could have anyone it would be Harvard, but of course that is impossible.

    Jim Mora’s new staff coming together…

    Parcels applies, I’d hire him.

    Why isn’t Diggins playing?

    Just guessing here, but maybe because Hurley is trying to win the games he plays, so he uses the guys he thinks give him the best chance. Right now, based on seeing him EVERY DAY, not on some made for pr public practice or recruiting highlight reel, he has concluded that right now, Diggins...

    AJ - I don't see it

    Um, Josh Boone started 37 games including the NCAA final as a freshman. Jackson can only wish he gets to Boone’s level.

    2021 Coaching Carousel picking up riders…

    You might be right. Bob Stoops was terrible. He only has an .832 winning percentage, zero losing seasons, a national championship, 10 B12 titles, took a team that hadn’t won the B12 in a dozen years and won 7 of the next nine. Oh, and hired Reilly. But he didn’t coach 2 Heisman Quarterbacks...

    2021 Coaching Carousel picking up riders…

    I don’t think he is. Maybe for a year or two, but he is a guy who started on third base and everyone thinks he hit a triple. I give him credit for not screwing up at Oklahoma, but HE inherited the best program in a weaker P5 league. Stoops had 3 seasons without double digit wins in his time...

    Does this push ND to join a conf?

    No intention of leaving. LOL. If the right opportunity came along, UConn would leave the New Big East faster than Kelly left Notre Dame (a place he had no intention of leaving, his words). UConn would leave mid-season if the ACC or the Big 10 called. For the B10 they’d leave midway through...

    Jim Mora’s new staff coming together…

    Totally agree with you. Texas and Florida have averaged 320+ players a year (2008-2019). Connecticut: 10.2. Over that 12 year period the most we had was 18 which happened once. So in a typical year, even if we locked up every FBS player in the state, we need just as many from “ away.” And...

    I'm assuming everyone is content with our play

    Did it ever occur to anybody that Springs and Johnson dont play because they aren’t that good? One thing I think last night showed was the impact of the 3. Seemed like they couldn’t miss for a while. We need to get guys like that. Im assuming Sonogo was hurt early. He was being outplayed...

    2021 Coaching Carousel picking up riders…

    What I can’t wait for is the first of these mega coaches to get fired and the school to be on the hook for 7-8 years of payments, plus having to pay a new guy in another 10 year deal. My guess is 1. Michigan State. They gave a very mediocre coach who coughed Up a hair ball in his big game an...

    Jim Mora’s new staff coming together…

    I’m sure Coach Mora can read the same data I can and he isn’t going to invest lots of time in getting Connecticut kids. A few now to fill slots maybe and build some bridges, but over the last 15 years or so Connecticut has averaged 10 FBS signees per year, highest number in 2019 with 18...

    Mora Introductory Press Conference- Saturday November 27th 10:30am Rentschler Field Club Level

    I like that he doesn’t concede games. Playing Michigan? Let’s put together a game plan the beat Michigan. No more planning to keep the score reasonably close.

    UConn v. Colgate (Saturday 11/27/21 @ 4:05 @ XL Center on CollegeSportsLive.com)

    What was pleasing about this one was they played hard for 3 periods and never Let Colgate back into it.

    Diggins Johnson Springs Time

    LOL. Back in the day there was a manager who walked Pesky to get to Williams, so I suppose replacing our best player with a guy who doesn’t get off the bench is something someone might do.

    This game showed that all the…

    Coaches fall in love with players and don’t see their faults just like fans do. Great coaches manage to avoid that. Hurley is in love with Jackson’s athleticism but looks past he defensive lapses, French pastry when white bread would be fine. He reacts on defense, doesn’t anticipate. Over...
