Mailbag July 23: Pasqualoni/UConn Getting A Car Wash; ESPN AAC Blog?

by Categorized: Mailbag, Uncategorized Tagged: , Date:

Q: Hi Dez. I read Richard Deitsch at SI noting that 50 coaches from the “power five” conferences will visit ESPN’s studios to do interviews and appear on shows, I think this is affectionately called the “car wash”. Any word if Pasqualoni will be making an appearance, or for that matter, any of the other AAC coaches? It would seem harsh if they didn’t considering ESPN is the league’s broadcast partner and all. Then again, ESPN.com didn’t bother to replace the Big East football blog with an AAC football blog. With Rutgers and Louisville set to leave UConn might need to have an unprecedented season to break through the noise barrier. Junglehusky, Hamden

A: Hey buddy not that I’m aware of and I’m pretty sure I would have caught wind of it by now…He has done it before though you may recall. I followed him around up there for the day. It was a blast. It’s great promotion for the program and to their credit ESPN does a helluva job with it bouncing coaches from platform to platform with a short break in between for lunch. It really is something and a great experience for the fans. I understand the question. I understand the ESPN blog concern too. I’ve reached out for a response and haven’t gotten one so I won’t reach out again. I’m not the only who has asked about this and they don’t have any answers either so…I think the football league is going to be better than people want to give it credit for and I think UConn can be a big reason why but it has to win and the fans have to stop knocking everything about the AAC and support the team. Look forward to hearing more from you sir….
