What’s going on?
Here’s my final UConn report card of the 2013 season. As you know, UConn blew out Memphis 45-10 on Senior Day Saturday to end the season at 3-9, 3-5 in the American and also on a three-game win streak.
Memphis (3-9, 1-7) was a bad team. UConn looked like a good team with promise for next year although the offensive line loses quite a bit of experience that will have to be made up in order for more explosions like the one Casey Cochran (single-game school record 461 yards and career-high four TDs) had.
How about that Geremy Davis (15×207, 1 TD), now a 1,000-yard receiver. Deshon Foxx (11×137, 2 TDs), you may recall, I said had the ability to be a play-maker and he’s shown it in flashes but he has to be consistent and build off the good of this season. The reason is because we know Shakim Phillips will be back as a starter oppositie Davis most likely but Brian Lemelle and Dhameer Bradley are going to come back hungry for time. They already were all season (I’m witing about the potential of the receivers for next year for tomorrow and I’ve gotten started a little bit here so let me stop).This unit could turn out to be something special next year and I don’t recall a time when that could be said about the group, especially as a whole, in a while.
Lastly, to all the seniors, thanks for everything, all of you. You were a terrific group to the media. I can attest. Best of luck to each and every one of you as well as Yawin Smallwood. Thanks for everything, All the Best.
OK, on we go…
