Jeff,
Great article about Kemba Walker. Stick to this type of writing and forget about your obvious personal, biased digs at Calhoun. It detracts from the happiness the UConn Mens Basketball program has brought to many. The facts will come out whenever, then everyone can decide for themselves how they feel about it. We don't need you "piling on" right now!

Kimba played a great game. I REALLY enjoyed your story.
I think some of these other "bozos" should get a life.

After being injured Dyson told Walker he must step up. He sure did! Often out of control early in the season he sure couldn't have grown up at a better time. But this was also a great team effort with all contributing. Special note should go to Edwards for his best performance of the season!

Jeff, "Einstein in the eye of the hurricane" whatever does this mean? Have you been spending too much time with Dorothy and her little dog? This is a great story ........ still waiting to be written by an equally great writer.

You have got to be kidding me one moment Jeff ( I stll whine for the Whalers) is hammering Calhoun, the next he is praising Uconn.
This clown flip flops more than Ann Hache deciding if she's gay or not.

What an AZZHOLE.

Are you sure that geting a haircut from a part of the adademic staff is not a NCAA violation? Maybe you should invesitigate. Oh wait, you never investigate. You just react to other peoples work. And, by the way, no one outside of press row cares if it was a blog or not.

The man of two faces is trying to jump on the Huskies band wagon just a day or so after commiting character assassination on coach. What a scumbag and sorry excuse for a human being you truly are Jacobs !! Get back under your rock snake man.

The list of disgruntled posters is getting desparate... they will soon migrate to other pastures once the Madness is over, in actuality they were hoping the season ended already. What a bunch of LOSERS!
Kemba is the real deal and played like the All American he is, keep it coming 'Bronx Guard'~ GO HUSKIES!

A couple more games like that and Mr. Walker will be a lock for tournament MVP.

Crank it up, Kemba.

Jacobs: Do yourself and the Courant a favor and find another job. Better yet, go back to school and learn how to write.

Courant: Promote Desmond to head of the sports editorial staff.

I rely on the Courant for Huskies' sports news, and this headline makes it appear that this may be a good article about Kemba Walker. Like so many others, I don't read anything with a Jacobs byline, so I wish the Courant would let other writers have more column space.

Kemba Walker was brilliant...another scoop by Jeff Jacobs. No wonder nobody reads the Courant.

Surpised Jacobs didn't write about the haircut being an "extra benefit."

agree...agree...agree...

Was going to post the same thing, but you got to it before I could.

What is the animus against JC all about anyway? When I left CT in the early 1990s, he could have been elected governor in a landslide. What the heck happened?

The Banking crisis was brought on by
Politicians on the take, like Dodd and his wife Clegg.
Will Jacobs investigate Dodd and make a report to the readers?

I think all us UCONN fans should sign a petition to fire Jacobs and send it to the sports editor. We only want to read positive stuff about our favorite basketball team. We don't want to read negative stories. There is nothing negative about UCONN, never has been and never will be. UCONN rules. Calhoun can recruit whomever he wants and I won't care as long as the team wins. The Courant and other CT media needs to stand behind UCONN and root for them. Don't report bad news, just good news....

OK, OK, I'll stop. I think you people get the point. If I sounded ridiculous, it was on purpose to let UCONN fans know what they sound like. Just listen to yourselves.
