Re: 1080 WTIC doesn't resign UConn basketball/football

I agree with you Sky. That’s why I was so happy when we had our broadcasts on WPOP and iHeartRadio. We need a better way to stream our own audio productions via the internet - iHeartRadio was perfect, that’s why IMG/UConn is now moving in that direction. I would be 100% satisfied if we could get all...

Re: @ RMU 2.17.18

NEC Front Row was cutting edge at the time. That time has passed - we need to move over to ESPN3 next season. The UI on the website sucks, quality of camera vary by school, lack of professional production :( Also, can say enough how much I miss our radio coverage from Bruce and Marc. Can't stand to ...

1080 WTIC doesn't resign UConn basketball/football

After 26 years, UConn broadcasts moving from 50k-watt WTIC-AM to ESPN Radio 97.9 FM Lots of reason for the move, yet CCSU basketball is still without its own radio deal :( http://www.courant.com/sports/uconn-huskies/hc-sp-uconn-wtic-20180216-story.html https://www.nhregister.com/sports/jeffjacobs/ar...

Huge win.

Don't bury this team yet - they have some big holes, but they still have some fight!

RR - you need to post more often. Absolutely hilarious.

I'm afraid much of what you said is sad, but true. :(

Re: vs. Mount St. Mary's 2.8.18

very disappointing game and season :( However, this season could get worse. They need to dig deep and finish out with a better effort. I don't think it is a bad as we think, and this is just DM's 2nd season and he's already got a better record than Howie did in his first 2 years in New Britain, so l...

Re: UConn future status as a mid-major

Agreed sky. Winning would certainly help, but its is unlikely they will match the attendance and ethesisaum they had for game vs. Big East teams like Boston College, Syracuse, Pitt, West Virginia, Virginia Tech, etc. They absolutely need to win more games, but causal fans aren't interested in watchi...

Re: @ Wagner 2.1.18

Yet, we are down by just 4 after 29 minutes.

This team has flaws and weaknesses, yet they are still competitive. Can you imagine what this team would look like when everyone is firing on all cylinders.

Re: NEC vs. FBS Opponents

Injuries are a part of the game and can happen vs. D-II Southern Connecticut or FBS Syracuse - can't predict those things. I would like to see 1 FBS game for CCSU each year. Only play 2 in a season if we really need the $$$, or if we have a willing opponent that we just can't refuse (Army, Navy, etc...
