T-Sam high fiving me at 2:32. What a weekend that was!Some video sizzle to the steak:
That's so true. I take the train to work and live on the shoreline, but I make it to every home football game and every home basketball game at the XLNothing against you personally, I think its hilarious that people do this. They'll take the train 90+ minutes to work each way every day but won't drive somewhere that's 45 minutes away because it's "too far"
From another thread I found but wanted to add it here: Connecticut has (or had in 2013) 24 players in the NFL. That is as many as OK, AR, and IN. That number is more than most of the B1G states. Connecticut is not an "awful" recruiting ground by those metrics.
Those were good tweets you added in there Mavblues...he's on the run and reaching now for anything....That guy Soonergrad04 is a ignorant tool...LOLYou should post this in frank the tank's timeline - he recently posted about our "terrible" recruiting territory. I already posted there about the number of UConn grads in the NFL (in response to a comment made by the Dude).
I've lived nearly my entire (55 years to date) life in lower Fairfield County (all but four years of undergrad and another four in the mid 1990's in the middle of the state, and in each stint I spent plenty of time down here). What I don't get is why some don't understand why we consider ourselves New Yorkers.this times 10000x
when I came to UConn from North Carolina I was shocked that the entire southern section of Connecticut basically considers itself a NYC suburb. Still is bizarre to me to this day

To add to my earlier post:Because you live in CT?
To add to my earlier post:
If you're from New York (Westchester or NYC) you think Connecticut is in your backyard. If you're from Fairfield County you know NYC is in your backyard.
Taking a run to Manhattan is easy, doesn't take much time and on impulse you can decide to head out any time from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm. I may be very biased on this but the way I see it this is the best place in the world to live.

Another good piece to add to the fire
The Fiesta Bowl were the legend has it we were destroyed by a team we did not belong on the field with. That's a myth that insults both UConn and a fine Sooner team
Rushing 120 yards 95
Passing. 242. 429
Return. 299. 95
Including a kickoff return of 95 yds
Entering the 4th Qtr the score was 34-20 with UConn driving
Todman was a beast
The Sooner folks in front of us were squirming in their seats as a Huskie TD would have made it a one possession game with plenty of time left
InStead our QB threw a pick six which ended our hopes.
Were they better than us yes ? We couldn't stop the Landry Jones hurry up short passing game.
But we fought then tooth an nail.
