What’s goin on?

UConn vs. USF Saturday, noon Rentschler Field…

We’ll tag a list of visitors, all unofficial and most for the Class of 2015, at the end. First here’s a look at what we did this week.

Today’s story features a conversation with UConn womens’ basketball coach Geno Auriemma, an avid football fan, who believes the football team deserves more support, win lose or draw. It’s my understanding he’s always had strong feeling about the issue and now he’s gone on the record. Aside from this, football aside, he’s a great man to talk to. I tweeted earlier this week that he’s good for the head and he is. He’s really gifted that way.

Anyway, here’s today’s notebook leading with some thoughts from Geno

Here’s a nice story on the EBV program at UConn..

Here’s another with defensive line coach and defensive coordinator Hank Hughes who has been with three different head coaches in his 13 seasons and in this tough situation his defense is going to have to come through
