After ACC Raid 2: Electric Bugaloo this week, this was a nice little treat.

UConn fan breaks ISU mascot's arm?

I hope this isn't true that it was a deliberate act by a Connecticut fan.

Syracuse Orangemen 1999 Offense

I posted this back in March, but I thought I would pop it back up since we are within a week of the first game. Only glanced at it, but it appears to be their playbook from that year. I really hope this isn't the offense we run.

With which pick will Kemba Walker be selected?

There isn't going to be any substance to this fan post, so I'll apologize for that right here.  I just like using the fancy poll option that SBNation provides, but I have to hit that 75 word count...

Men's Outdoor Track and Field continue UConn dominance when they were crowned 2011 Big East Outdoor Champions yesterday. (H/T: BECB) As a side note, Kasif Moore proves he is of some use to the university by being part of the school record breaking 4x100 team that won one of four Big East Titles. Also continuing Big East dominance on the individual level was some guy named Aaron King, who was named 2011 Big East Outstanding Field Performer.

Porter's writing ripped off

Came across this article today. It's word for word of Andrew's article about UConn gear. I have no idea why this website would want it. Very bizarre.

2016 Madden Cover to be a Husky

...and you'll never guess who it will be. To help you avoid that whole reading thing here is the answer below: "M -- Madden Peyton Hillis was ranked by ESPN as the second-best fullback in the 2008 draft with a 52 overall grade (out of 100). This year, UConn's Anthony Sherman is the No. 2-rated fullback with a 55 rating. So, without further ado, I'd like to announcer your Madden 2016 cover boy and future NFL superstar ... THIS GUY!"

Hatin' on Cuse

The article is pretty long and has some interesting stats on graduation rates and stuff, but the real reason I post is because of this gem: "...that showed 10 of the 68 teams in the men's tournament this year didn't meet the NCAA's Academic Progress Rate goal of being on track to graduate at least 50 percent of their players...the 10 men's tournament teams that did not meet the NCAA's current APR standard were: USC, Syracuse, Kansas State, Purdue, Alabama State, Morehead State, San Diego State, Alabama-Birmingham, UC Santa Barbara and Texas-San Antonio." I think this may have already been mentioned in Hate Week, but it's always worth bringing something like that up again. Note: Emphasis mine.

ESPN "Expert" Picks

I mentioned this in one of the threads yesterday that Jay Bilas picked UConn to not only go to the Final Four, but also the title game.  The surprising thing to me about that particular pick was he...

Our Huskies go on the road tomorrow to Cincinnati. I was thinking we could go on the road with them to the Bearcats SBNation blog "Down the Drive." Not for the whole game, but the first 5 minutes...

93-78: St. John's destroys Duke

I know it's officially Syracuse hate week, but I think any time is a good time for a little Duke hate. Congrats to our Big East brethren for their beatdown on the Blue Devils. I don't have twitter, but I noticed the #MidMajorHateration hashtag the other day. Perhaps a comment about the ACC being a Mid Major this year with that hashtag could be done?

Burton-Hathaway Thoughts?

As you all have heard, UConn football's #1 donor, Richard Burton, sent a letter to the AD (Jeff Hathaway) with a few ultimatums.  The topic has been debated both on this website and others across...

Hartford Courant posted the letter online. I won't be able to read it until later, but I can't wait! Should be fun.

ESPN 30 for 30

Was watching ESPN's 30 for 30 "Pony Exce$$" about the 80's SMU "death penalty." How does this relate to UConn you say? Well our football team has the distinction of being SMU's first win, in exciting fashion no less, the season they came back from their death penalty.
