Through The Courant’s John Altavilla UConn athletic director Warde Manuel talks about the football team win over No19 Louisville.
Manuel was at Paradise Jam with UConn women’s basketball team…
“It was a great win for the team. I thought they really showed great effort, tenacity and resolve, particularly in the second half,” Manuel said. “We weren’t moving the ball very well and they [Louisville] started to move it better. But we showed great resolve during the time when Louisville had the momentum. We kept fighting.
“I watched the entire game with several of our donors and fans. It made us very proud. It’s a game of emotion and in the end it was elation. I’m just glad that their efforts in practice, sticking together as a team and not breaking apart, whining and making excuses. They showed the ability that their effort helped them produce.”
