What’s goin on?

UConn football coach Bob Diaco said Tuesday during AAC Media Day there will be a starting quarterback named but a second will play because the quarterbacks on the roster do different things well. And, honestly, the Huskies need to move the ball much better and easier so whatever way the staff sees fit to do that even it’s three quarterbacks playing that should be the direction to go.

UConn Coach Pasqualoni Says QB Casey Cochran In Good Shape

UConn Coach Paul Pasqualoni said redshirt freshman quarterback Casey Cochran (6-0, 214) is in good shape to start Spring Football Monday in Storrs.

“He did get a little heavy,” Pasqualoni said. “The fact that he hurt that wrist/thumb and was really limited, kinda knew he wasn’t going to go in the game, I think he did get a little heavy but he looks good right now and has run well in the agility workouts. I’m anxious to see those guys at the quarterback position.”
