Mailbag Feb.27: Does UConn Intend To Play 2014 Non-Conference Schedule?

Q: Does UCONN intend to play any non games in 2014, whats up with the schedule – Jeff, Torrington

A: I believe UConn intends to play a 2014 non-conference schedule. I really do. I also think there is so much movement in college football, so much going on, with a new athletic director just coming aboard in the past year, a new AD trying to get the best non-conference games for the program that are good, make sense, it cant be easy . He’s a quiet negotiator too so you’re not going to get speculation out of him and you’re not going to get anything out of him until a deal is done. That’s frustrating for fans yes but it makes good business sense. I would say when something happens with the 2014 schedule, deals are finalized, we’ll know. For now, can I suggest that there are enough story lines to talk about with regard to the 2013 schedule which is done and coming up in just a few months and happens to be one of the best regular season schedules the program has ever had… Thanks Jeff…
