The UConn Blog: Right Now UConn Is Not A Top 25 team

It hasn’t been easy to root for UConn in the last two weeks. It came to a head Sunday when the Huskies lost 68-63 to Michigan. The UConn Blog is understandably frustrated and looking for silver linings:

I feel incredibly frustrated by where this team is headed right now, and I do not like it. I fully reject the premise that this is year one of a five year plan and so we should be okay with this. Sure, this team may be building toward a title a few years down the road, but they still have more talent than what they’ve shown. This team should not be struggling to stay on the bubble.

With all of that said, there is still a bit of hope left in my heart. It is only January 17, and if UConn can grab a few decent Big East wins in the next few weeks, it could be the start of something good. More than a few Calhoun teams have struggled in January and then caught fire late in conference play (Hello 2005!). Plus, there is that meaty matchup with Texas next week. If UConn keeps playing the way they have, the Longhorns should run them off the floor, but Texas showed last night that they can be vulnerable and Gampel is not a fun place for a road team to play. If the Huskies pull off the upset (somehow, someway) that will go a long way from removing the word bubble from my vocabulary.

The good news for UConn? They get St. John’s next…surely they can win that one. Right?
