    Men MSOC Coach Ray Reid announces retirement.

    Not a bad idea naming the field after Ray Reid. As I mentioned before in these threads, I kind of figured Reid would retire after a full season of coaching the team in the new soccer facility, but I have to admit I wasn't totally confident it would happen. People talk about the donation he...

    Men Fall men’s soccer schedule

    I doubt too many schools would fire a coach who won a national championship, and then continued to make the NCAA tourney for another 13 straight seasons, even with all the premature exits from those tournaments that grated on fans of the team. Not to mention that UConn men's soccer was among...

    Men UConn Baseball 2022

    My wife and I have been donating to UConn athletics for about 25 years now, give or take a year. UConn Athletics sends us a form every year. The trick to becoming a member of the Dugout Club (which basically gets you on a Chris Jones email list) is that on this form you designate a portion of...

    Syracuse DI Hockey?

    Not a season ticket holder for men's ice hockey, but I'll look you up if we make it to a game.

    Syracuse DI Hockey?

    Agreed. The only team from outside New England to compete in Hockey East was Notre Dame. That sure didn't work out. Seriously doubt Hockey East is about repeat that experiment and add a team that far outside its base region. Especially a school with pretty much no college ice hockey history...

    Shame on the Courant

    To me it is sad to see any newspaper die or getting close to death. To me It is even sadder when a community loses its newspaper, no matter how poor the paper might have been. I would probably feel this way no matter what, but I am no doubt partly influenced by the fact that my wife is a...

    Men Fall men’s soccer schedule

    It was indeed a sad day when Joe Morrone was forced out of the program, even if UConn men's soccer was not on the same level it had been the previous decade when he left the program. The work he put into building the UConn soccer program and building interest in soccer (including youth soccer)...

    UConn v. #15 UMass Lowell (Saturday 11/20/21 @ Tsongas Center @ 3:35p on NESN & Sunday 11/21/21 @ XL Center @ 3:35 on CW20)

    UConn on the power play at about the 8 minute mark of the 3rd period. Nothing comes of it.

    Shame on the Courant

    By my count the Courant now has four sports reporters, and they are probably stretched to the limit. Dom Amore seems to cover everything under the sun. They have a new reporter covering UConn men's basketball, another reporter covering women's basketball. Lori Riley seems to primarily cover...

    Men UConn Baseball 2022 Team Captains (Fedko, Stock & Peterson)

    Interesting. Both Stock and Peterson are transfers into the UConn baseball program. I have to think it is a bit rare to find two transfers being named team captains. Still, no question that they have both proven their worth to UConn baseball.

    Men UConn Baseball 2022 Team Captains (Fedko, Stock & Peterson)

    Hopefully some video will follow of the ceremony in the UConn cemetery. Suspect that if Reggie Crawford was not hurt and assumed out for the season that he would have been a captain as well.

    Men UConn baseball scores grand slam with class of 2022 signees (Daily Campus)

    Not a bad summary at all. The odd thing is that periodically I've been checking the Daily Campus for their sports stories. I could be wrong, but I think this is the first UConn baseball article that they have ran this semester. With fall ball going on, I would have thought something else...

    Loyola Chicago to the A10!

    I would think St. Louis is happy to see another midwest school in the A10. In the past I had the thought St. Louis might be a better fit in the MVC, primarily to cut down on travel expenses. So much for that thought, with Wichita State and Creighton also having left the Valley in recent years.

    Men Fall men’s soccer schedule

    Ray Reid has now completed a full season coaching the the UConn men's soccer team in the new soccer facility. Now it would be best if he retire so as to spare UConn the task of having to fire a coach who won a national championship for the school oh so many years ago.

    Huskies in the Pros (Baseball)

    Ryan Fuller was an Avery Point player before arriving to play in Storrs. it is nice to see Avery Point have another presence in MLB, joining Pete Walker, the Toronto pitching coach who like Fuller played at both Avery Point and in Storrs.

    Recently Watched Movies 2021

    On the Rocks (2020) - Writer/director Sofia Coppola and Bill Murray first teamed up in "Lost In Translation”, a movie that I really loved when it was released back in 2003. They team up again in "On the Rocks", which also stars Rashida Jones who plays a married woman who is beginning to suspect...

    Courant's Alexa Phillipou- does a really nice job

    The Hartford Courant sport department is "all in" on UConn sports, if you include only their coverage of men's and women's basketball, and football. You should go over to the Boneyard Hockey threads where the Courant is regularly blasted for their lack of game coverage of the UConn men's ice...

    Randy Brochu appreciation thread

    Randy Brochu does a good play by play, and he is also versatile. He was also involved off and on over the years in doing the radio broadcasts of Norwich minor league baseball games. While I admit that I rarely listened to Norwich games on the radio, my wife would, and she thought Brochu was...

    OT: Anyone else obsessed with setback / pitch!?

    My wife's father was born in Quebec. The big card game in her family is a French Canadian variation on Setback that is called Bloute. At any of their family parties it is very likely that this card game will be played.
