Mailbag Oct.14: Proud UConn Alum Wants To Read About Others

by Categorized: Mailbag Tagged: , Date:

Q: I am a very proud UConn football alumnus but enough is enough reading about all the problems / issues every day in the paper. Why not give the a break and write some positive stories about some very good football programs like Trinity, Wesleyan, UNH, etc. Div III has some excellent players and these kids are the epitomy of a student athlete. Or more about other UConn sports teams.

A: Hi John. If I could only have the control to stop the negative and bring all the positive – huh boy this world and everything else would be totally different than it is now – In my dreams, right? Anyway, I’m just a little ‘ol sportswriter John who has been assigned to a beat – UConn football. It is a beat I thoroughly enjoy for a lot of reasons. Whoops got off topic there. I think the only answer I can give you is, while I’d like you to continue reading me, if you don’t want to I understand – just don’t read it. I’m not sure what else to say. I think you know we cover other schools as well as other UConn sports John, right? Thanks for the question…
