9 thoughts on “Jim Calhoun On Murphy, Obama

  1. Sad Day for Connecticut

    Please let me know just who cares what Jim Calhoun thinks or who he endorses for office. He is certainly no role model.

    I like and respect Jim Calhoun because he won 2 national championships for UConn. I also like Barack Obama and Chris Murphy. They are winners. Mitt Romney and Linda McMahon are losers.

      3 National Championships. But for me, his endorsement of Obama/Murphy takes the sting out of his retirement.

    We all care what Jim Calhoun thinks. He provided real entertainment in a real sport, not trash entertainment in a pretend sport like Linda McMahon.

    Perfect person to be speaking for Murphy…

    Maybe he can talk about his belief in stonger education?

    What was his player’s graduation rate again? Wasn’t it not among the lowest of all time? Matches Murphy’s plan.

    How about the number of his players who had legal problems and weren’t a few even kicked out of school?

    Sounds like Murphy’s stand on crime.

    How about the scandals and the cheating and rules violations that plagued him his entire career?

    Again, Murphy doesn’t believe in paying his bills and then blames it on lame excuses…

    Jim Calhoun is the PERFECT person to stand with Chris Murphy…the two of them are so alike…

    This is very disappointing. Coach Calhoun is a man I would otherwise respect but this causes me to question his judgement. I respect Coach Calhoun 90% as much as I did before these idiotic endorsements. Mitt is going to win in a landslide. Linda has a proven record of creating jobs. Murphy is a career politician who never shows up for committee meetings.
