Q: I understand from reading your posts that players like Pasqualoni, he treats them with respect, he does better with Conn. recruiting and probably more. Okay, good. But he’ll be 63 this year. If UConn is going to end up in one of the major conferences after everything sorts out (4 or 5 conferences, 16 teams each), it will be because they have a respectable football team. It will have nothing to do with basketball. If UConn doesn’t want to become Hofstra or Florida International, better spend some real money to bring in a talented, YOUNG, coach after one more season.

A: If the team goes 8-4, 9-3 or 10-2, do you still get rid of him and bring in a “young” coach? I’m not saying the team will finish with either one of those records but I think you have to give the man a chance to implement his system, improve on last season and follow his vision for the program. I think those clamoring about the coach being old or whatever are wasting their time, bottom line. Paul Pasqualoni will have time to do his thing and that includes after this season if need be. This is the first time I’ve seen the age of a coach being tied to joining a major conference.
