Mailbag 4/7: Tough Choice: UConn-Maryland Men’s Basketball, or UConn-Louisville Football

by Categorized: Mailbag, UConn men's basketball


Q: Why did they schedule the basketball game the same night as the UConn-Louisville football game? I would have gone to both if not on the same night.



A: Well, John, it’s not ideal, but Nov. 8 was the day the Barclays Center scheduled for this game, so UConn has no choice there. They couldn’t pass up a national TV game in New York. The benefits from playing this game outweigh any drawbacks.

The football game with Louisville is probably locked in, though a start time and TV hasn’t been announced yet. Maybe there is wiggle room to move it up or back a day. It would be worth looking into that. November is a long way off.

    Does it really matter? Out basketball team is about to go on probation again because KO went out of his way to get an academic failure to transfer from NC State and our football team is pathetic and will continue to be so as long as PP is in charge.

    Uconn going on probation again. What a joke statement you made up there. Uconn is going to be fine and will participate in the NCAA tourney next year!!

      Go complain to KO – he’s the one bringing in a player who is having academic issues at a safety school like NC State.

    Thank you for your interest in UConn basketball Hip Hood Rat or whatever you want to call yourself. You should probably not call it “our” basketball or football team when you clearly are not a fan and are just a moron with nothing good to say.
