What’s goin on?

Here’s what new UConn Coach Bob Diaco talks philosophy on recruiting.

“The formula for changing any of this stuff is, own your distinctions, embrace your distinctions, and target players that are interested in those distinctions – for example: there’s a dynamic player in the state that wants to be a bio-genetic engineer and that’s a big part of his life. He doesn’t necessarily love that more than football but he loves it. You can’t go to a better school. We’re right here. We play great football in a great conference and you’re able to be at one of the cutting edge institutions for bio-genetics.”

For the record, Diaco is a big believer in the success of the American Athletic Conference…

“It’s good football with good teams,” he said.
