  1. Glutton for Punishment

    Geno has always had little acceptance of criticism. He is very thin skinned for a guy from Philly. I guess the learn to dish it out, not accept it back.

    I have however always said there is no such thing as “constructive” criticism only criticism–and all criticism is negative. I have extremely thin skin. I know it so I don’t dish insults–not wanting any in return.

    Old Italian adage— SHOW ME A GOOD LOSER AND I’LL SHOW YOU A LOSER. There is truth in that.

    SO GENO—Why put yourself in the position to take a beating on the Last (and maybe 3 this year) ND games??
    You’ll learn nothing. They fan’s will learn nothing–your real fans will love you and your team. Haters can never be changed.

  2. Twitter Chat

    Lots of words expended, nothing real said. Much to do about nothing. I’m sure Geno has nothing better to do today than to Tweet.
    JOHN— What did you learn with this APhoop (A Poop??)???
    I almost turned it off thought they were using bad ]\ words!!!.

    1. What's More Important

      IS why Geno thinks he must use sarcasm. Why not just state your case?? sarcasm is used to try to demean your audience, it says so much more about the person using it.
      Respect your audience and they shall respect you–it works on this postings too.

    Geno, bad year for our guards,Doty, trying her best but unable to stay with Sims or the Diva, Bria, ankle injury plus accuracy & TO problems, BB down with ACL, Mo, forced into matchups she’s not ready for, again, Sims, Diva. Last and most important is Kelly trying to do too much to compensate. Except for Kiah who is still a BB God or headcase, you’ve got great bigs in Steff, Stewie & Morgan plus the greatest pure shooter in KML. If Kelly can just run the team and utilize their abilities with a minimum of turnovers we can still win it all. What worked in the past will not work now. Geno, you’re a BB genius, find a new way!

    1. Keep Drinking Geno Aid From The Tap

      another Cult Clown who gives Geno all the credit and none of the blame

      if you actually have people working for you, I bet it’s always their fault and always your credit

      1. UconnFan

        It is like that in the corporate world and politics and I would bet my life that if you looked in the mirror with your eyes open you would see a few double standards of your own and all his former great players would beg to differ with you on your opinion since there is not a better motivator in the country. Funny how fans like you say he only wins because he has the best players and when they lose that he can’t coach!

  4. COMIC RELIEF

    5 Kelly Faris would score no more than 40 points against Notre Dame and thus UConn would lose. So Geno what’s your point about her? Faris is a hustler with bad passing skills, bad shooting skills, and terrible decision making. Doty has been even worse. Yet instead of developing the healthier younger players, you played Doty out of pity. The fact you benched Doty against Notre Dame this past Tuesday might mean the 10W light bulb went on in your head.

    1. The Far Side

      A light bulb could NOT have gone off in Geno’s head because there are no connections to it. Unless it was a solar bulb, then you might be right since there is nothing to block the sun from entering. Good point after all. Keep up the good work and may God bless America.

  5. TINA & MAYA >>>>> KML, STEWIE, DOLSON

    To all the KML and Stewie fans who throw Maya under the bus and to all the Dolson fans who throw Tina under the bus

    don’t give a shite about comparing individual statistics at given points of their careers

    let me know when KML and Stewie are 4x AA, 3x POY, won 2 NC and let me know when Dolson is a POY, won 2 NC

    NC and POY trump any statistic

    Sad how fans FORGET what Maya and Tina did for this program

    During the tweeter chat someone asked about comparing this team to 2009

    Geno simply replied we don’t have Tina and Maya

    Let me know when Dolson sets WNBA records for rebounding and double double

    Let me know when KML and Stewie win WNBA ROY and Title in same season

    I’ll be waiting

  6. Uconn

    Hey Tina & Maya—If you love living in the past stay there. If you don’t like this team–watch Rutgers or ND.
    Tina-Maya-and the rest are (as far as Uconn players) are dead and gone. Uconn now has Dolson, KML, Faris, Hartley, Stewie, Tuck, Stokes, Mo Jeff, Doty, Buck.
    If these kids don’t play to your liking–like someone else.
    Geno gets to play those from HIS team–not from teams past or future.
    Live in the moment–it’s all anyone has. Enjoy it now or live with regret!!!

    1. UConn

      You were really living in the moment replying to my previous post. Loser. Think of something original.

  7. TINA & MAYA>>>>KML, STEWIE, DOLSON

    FARIS SUCKS. DOTY SUCKS. HARTLEY SUCKS. KML PULLED A TIFF. STEWART CAN ONLY PLAY WELL AGAINST SHORTER PLAYERS. GENO IS STUBBORN. WHAT EXACTLY DOES DAILEY COACH TO STOKES AND BUCK? DOES SHEA EVEN TEACH BALL HANDLING DRILLS? AND GENO THOUGHT THIS TEAM WOULD BE GREAT. IT’S NOT BY UCONN STANDARDS. AND THAT’S WHAT GENO WAS BRAGGING ABOUT LAST SEASON.

    1. UconnFan

      The only thing that sucks is your knowledge of basketball and it’s talent. If your knowledge was 1/10th what you thought it was, you would be coaching at a major university or hired as a analyst for ESPN!
