Re: 2019 Postseason

Holy crap has anyone seen the prices for tomorrows NCAA game in Hartford? OMG, scalpers get the ol one finger salute from me. My God
I thought about going, but after looking at the prices, my HD TV and my lucky chair were looking preferable!
Still, on my TV, it looked like a big crowd.

Re: Jake Watch

I think that the word is out. It is my hunch that Jake could go in the middle of the draft, maybe 3rd or 4th round. Teams know that there is legitimate interest by other teams and he is a QB so there is incentive to pull the trigger and draft him before someone else does. QB is the one position whic...

Re: 2019 Postseason

As a big underdog it is always tough to come close but fall short.
Vermont had a great season...again.

This box score has VT at a spectacular 50%, 16 for 32, from beyond the arc. If they missed some in the closing minutes I think you have to chalk it up to returning to the mean.

FSU had 31 pts from free throws to VT's 7.

Re: Whos Left???? Early March 2019

I am still thinking that if Krishnan, Coleman, and Wallace stay, then it is most likely a cleaning house. Think about it, if Hugley stayed we would be in excellent shape despite the other transfers. No doubt losing Hugley hurts. Krishnan has the potential to be a 40% shooter from beyond the arc. Col...

Re: 2019 Postseason

My two cents! Money is the problem. Facilities are a consequence of money. Still that is not the reason that we are in a quagmire of poor performance in the marquee sports. Although I would argue FB is not that bad. In the last two years they won the conference and then were in contention up to the ...

Re: Whos Left???? Early March 2019

So far we have lost 2 Seniors, 3 graduates with remaining eligibility, and two freshman who did not play much and did not look good when they did. Nothing we can do about the Seniors. Other than that, what 'difficult to replace' players have we lost? One....Hugley. I know most here think that this i...

Re: Jake Watch

I am a Patriot fan, yeah!
I had an interesting dream recently. The Pats were celebrating a Super Bowl victory and Jake was holding up the trophy as all those paper things were fluttering down from the sky.

Re: 2019-20 non-conference schedule

I was fondly reminiscing about the good old days when we played at Mohegan Sun against UMass and also the Connecticut 6.
This is great news and I am planning on going!

Re: CCSU Sports Radio Broadcasting

Couldn’t the university recruit two communication students to broadcast virtually all major and semi major sporting events on WFCS? It seems to me like it would be a pretty basic, simple and dirt cheap method of assuring that fans have access to the games while providing students with broadcasting ...

Re: Whos Left???? Early March 2019

Yeah, a pipe dream indeed, no way that was ever going to happen. Tre Mitchell is a 4 star player. I don't believe there has been a 4 star player committed to any NEC team in recent history, maybe never? Let's see Syracuse, Indiana, Providence, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, and CCSU.... "hmmm!

Re: 3.12.19 NEC Championship: Fairleigh Dickenson Univ. @ St. Francis Univ. ESPN2 @ 7:00 PM

I have no favorites. I watched the game and FDU was clearly the better team. Their superb three point shooting stretched the D opening up drives and points in the paint. SFU had no answer. Even more impressive is that FDU had two wins on SFU's home court; also FDU has an excellent PG. It is nice tha...

Re: CCSU Athletic Hall of Fame

The notice has Harold Brown as '78. That has to be wrong, unless he came back to school ten years later and got his degree. He played in the late 60's. And how come he wasn't in the HoF already? I believe that he broke a lot of rushing records. I saw him run for over 250 yards against AIC in somethi...

Re: 3.2.19 CCSU vs. Fairleigh Dickinson Univ. @ 1:00 pm *Front Row*

There is a lot we don't know. My opinion is that DM must have put his foot down...Kohl and Hugely were basically though not officially, kicked off the team. Maybe that came from above, but we cannot assume that. From all appearances DM was on board with having them gone. As far as the mass exodus, m...
