      The Boneyard – LOL!

      No one cares and no one reads the worthless Boneyard.

    2. UCONNFB

      Isn’t it agaist the blog rules to use this blog to promote other pathetic blogs that no one reads?

    3. UCONN007

      The Boneyard is where the whiny, unliked, fringe UCONN fans go to stroke each other and tell themselves that all is well after they got booted by Rivals.

    A far more interesting article would be to examine their GPAs while at UCONN.

    Hip-Hop-Hood is a UCONN hater who trolls the UCONN boards. S/He is best ignored…although when you are a UCONN fan, it is hard to ignore someone who is so obviously a UCONN hater in his/her ridiculous “comments.”

    Well I just have to say that I don’t have any friends and when I get you guys to react to my comments that I feel better about my pathetic life living in my mom’s basement. Thanks for helping with my self esteem.

      1. UCONNFB

        Obviously Hip Flop and I are not the same person–his posts are ignorant, childish, foolish and without any facts to support them. Mine, I believe, have some merit and are based in reality

    Yo Yo Yo Hip Hop Hood,
    You ” Da Man ” Cuz. I’m right which you ” BRO “. Frankie knows good people when he sees them — and you are good people. Forget about that ” Lynne Chick ” Frankie had a few go rounds with her a few years back. She is just a female ” TROLL “.

    FFF
