UConn is biggest loser in realignment

Friday, December 14th, 2012

Since we're on top of the people who are on top of things, we told you earlier this week about the likelihood of the Big East's Catholic, non-FBS football playing schools breaking away and doing their own thing. Now that it's happening, it is clear that there is one school which ...

Geno’s Next Move

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

On Tuesday night, UConn women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma complained that his team's fans have grown spoiled after the Huskies' home arena was only half-full for the final home game in the career of superstar Maya Moore. I see Geno's point. UConn fans have gotten too used to winning, and winning ...

NCAA Tournament Thoughts: Day One, Early Session

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

I guess you could call this a running diary, but it's really more just my thoughts as the games progress. There will be very little rhyme or reason to the updates, they'll just arrive as things come into the cosmic skull jelly that rests between my ears. Enjoy. Games on right ...

Jim Calhoun’s Rant Continues to Take On Its Own Life

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

By now you've all seen the rather, uh, heated exchange between a "reporter"/activist and Connecticut men's hoops coach Jim Calhoun. Gotta say, I side with Calhoun, even though he comes off somewhat like a d-bag in the whole thing. But either way, screw that guy and the people in the Connecticut state ...

A.J. Price Almost Sent Jerel McNeal Off on Crutches Too

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

By the time you read this post you will have seen A.J. Price's crossover against Jerel McNeal -- likely many times. But it bears repeating: That is a sick, sick move and Price even had time to look down at McNeal's fallen person before burying the jumper. And keep in mind ...

McD’s Bowl Picks Part Six: Sugar Bowl Edition

Friday, January 2nd, 2009

Updated through International Bowl Record: 17-10, 13-14 ATS The color guy on the Cotton Bowl broadcast just said Jevan Snead misses passes early in games "because he's high." Take from that what you will. Alabama is in deep shit if John Parker Wilson has to throw his way to victory. Tide fan is ...

McD’s Week 15 Picks: Championship Week

Friday, December 5th, 2008

Happy Championship Week to everyone. Just want to point out Utah, Boise State and TCU are all ranked ahead of the Big East champion (Cincinnati) and whoever the ACC champion will be. But do any of those four teams get to go to BCS games? One: Utah, with an outside shot ...

McD’s Week 10 Picks

Friday, October 31st, 2008

Record through week nine: 96-40, 65-66-5 ATS 12pm ET West Virginia (5-2) at (25) UConn (6-2) (+3.5) I feel terrible for UConn. They really did have a shot at something special, but they're just not the same without their quarterback. Hence their being home dogs against an unranked team. Worse for them, West ...
