    It’s scary to think some Geno cultists actually believe the improvement in Dolson and Banks was because of him. Those 2 playes took it upon themselves to work their buttocks off during the off season. Geno was not coaching Dolson and Banks in the off season.

      Homeland—I worked with the DEA,CIA, FBI,FAA,DOD, VA, and if you dropped an “F” bomb in mixed company, you fight like hell to keep your job. Dam, Shit-e, etc was enough to get a reprimand.
      The “F” word is used to frequently and not necessary. the premise of the show is great, Damien Lewis is superb, Manny not so much.
      The ratings don’t need the F word or unnecessarily overly bare sex, so why do it???

      1. Fox Scully

        I totally agree V.I., there is too much sex, cursing and throwing around the “f” word on Homeland. I think Mandy Patinkin throws that word in when he feels like it. Its been said he has a fowl mouth anyways. If a show needs to do and say things for emmy/golden globe nods or ratings, the show needs to get cancelled and put them all on the unemployment line and send M. Patinkin back to broadway where he belongs…..beard and all!!! bye-bye

  3. FREDDY UNKOOL

    JOHN THANK YOU FOR NOT ALLOWING FREDDYKOOL TO MAKE DEMEANING AND DEROGATORY COMMENTS. NOW IF YOU WILL STOP HIM FROM USING –LMFA ETC. YOU KNOW WHAT IT STANDS FOR–AND ITS BOARDERLINE FILTHY….

    THIS DEFECATION ABOUT THE CHARTER OAK BRIDGE IS A KIN TO HIS SECOND CHILDHOOD.

    Gotta laugh at the poor shooting comments about Diggins. How did Faris shoot her first 3 seasons? How well does Doty shoot? Oh, I see. Doty can shoot like crap but get credit for runnng the show, even while on the bench for more than half the game. But if Diggins runs the show like a true point guard and shoots only 40%, she gets trashed. Stop drinking the Geno Aid and acknowledge that UConn is not the only team with talent and a good coach.

    I find it amusing that so many people worry about recruiting and who we get and do not get. There is not a staff anywhere that can outwork the Uconn staff and the last 28 years and our record proves it. If most of these people were 1/10th as good as they think they are, they would be making good money as a recruiter at one of these universities.

      So when’s the ground breaking for the Geno and CD statue? Will there be a little Kelly statue under Geno’s right hand?

    It’s unfortunate that this Blog and weekly chat have been taken over by a few people who obviously have an axe to grind or just want to irritate others. It’s so immature for some to suggest that UCONN should get every ‘hot’ recruit that’s out there and if they don’t, it’s Geno’s fault. As JA stated, there are many reasons why a recruit chooses a specific University and geography is certainly one of them. Except for Taurasi and KML, note that most of the top prospects on the West coast stay on the West coast these days and they have several excellent schools to choose from. That’s why Cal, UCLA, and USC have become much more competitive against Stanford. Women are more interested in academics than men because college is a 4-year commitment for them….and most will choose Stanford over UCNN on that basis alone.
    I also tire of hearing comments about “there are only 3-4 good teams.” I think the West coast teams mentioned above plus KY, TN, Pa State and a few other teams deserve to be recognized….and it’s because the talent is now being distributed among a wider list of schools. It seems folks don’t appreciate the fact that the UCONN coaching staff [collectively] is probably second to none in the US and has been for years.

    1. Here We Go Again

      There ARE only 3 of 4 teams this season with a legitimate chance at winning the national championship AGAIN unless the superstars get injured or the refs fix the games with phantom calls. STOP whining every time someone has an opinion that differs from yours. Get over yourself and grow up.
