    So Cool!! Now the State needs to figure out a better route to Storrs from the Interstate Highway!!

    So the next step is to build a fence around the facility to keep the people of question character inside. It could serve as the state’s newest prison when the UCONN sports programs die due to lack of revenue from the new conference and a dying fan base.

    By the way, the new logo is pathetic. Just because we are in a lousy confernece does not mean our logo has to be lousy too.
