In another display of incredibly bad judgment Obama picked Chattanooga to beat UConn in this game!

No one wishes ill will on anyone and hopefully Coach C will rebound and be back. That being said, after watching some of the early games, is it any wonder why we see AAU, High School and Middle school teams destroying others. Really, the UCONN and UNC games...please. Win with class. Run the shot clock down before the ally-op. Pull the ball out and run some offense. Have some discipline. We have seen what happens when UCONN needs to run a play when they are up/down by 2. A pass and a prayer. This is the time to work on those plays. A team over time picks up the character of the Coach. After what I saw todayCoach C can keep his dime

The best medicine for Coach Calhoun is to see his team win. The worst is idiots like yourself and anyone else guilty of inducing undo stress on someone who has brought so much to our program. Shame on you and all who wished ill-feelings on our coach.
Keep your 2 cents to yourself.

Really this is the NCCA tourney? The worst thing you can do is tell your kids to not play hard and to back off. With that said, leaving players in too long can risk injuries. One the of the problems is Uconn has an injured starter, and two Freshmen uneligible players. Yet, Beverly, Haralson and Mandalove should have seen more time. Further, Uconn wins by a few and people will say that shows their lack of heart, they win by a lot and that shows their lack of class. People in Connecticut are so fickle and critical. Good job Stanley. Keep up the energy for Saturday.

I really liked Beverly's performance. I realize he likely won't see much time during the remainder of UConn's tournament run but i think the skills he showed say a lot for what he will mean for this team next year. Hitting a three and driving to the basket for a layup or a dime really exhibited his talents. i realize it was done against inferior opponents but still it was a positive performance for donnell in a season where he hasnt really had the opportunity to display just what he can do.

Is Jeff Adrien playing hurt? Or is he is he burned out? He was alway a tough guy who often carried the team but lately he is like a prizefighter who loses it all between rounds. Jeff missed six straight free throws in today's game. Not like him. The Huskies won't go far without Jeff being at the top of his game.

I am writing in support of the view that there was absolutely no need for UConn to run up the score today. I am a big UConn fan. I give a donation to the university in the four figures every year. But I was embarassed by the lack of class and sensitivity today. With 5 minutes to go in the game and UConn up by 40 points, they still had their regulars in. Yes, Calhoun brought a tradition of winning to the university. But he also brought baggage which we have been witnessed to this year. My money was not well spent today, and UConn will not get another dime! Not one dime!

Running up the score not cool ... next game will be flat as a result.

shud have saved some gas sted of draining the gas tank on a 16th seed ...

agree with Class of 74. Calhoun franchise never known for its class, only its crass.

To class of 74 redux: You are wrong. The score difference could have been even bigger.. UConn went deep to its bench at a reasonable time. Chattanooga stopped defending and committed many turnovers. There are times when you cannot hold back. Haters on this board may have contributed to JC's illness. Cut them some slack.

I love it...UConn haters bellyaching about the team running up the score. One guy is actually going to stop contributing because he's so insulted. What a puss. Keep your money.

This is just what this team needed to get a little confidence back after two brutal games. Hopefully some of it will rub off on Craig A because his shot is way off.

Really? Running up the score? And it was George Blaney this time. Good grief, said Chuck!

Good win. Wished they'd have hit their FTs, and the score would have been worse, and I'd be happier.

Really folks, we outnumber you.

Guess what....we don't need your phony donations.
Jim Calhoun acts and coaches no different today than when he joined. It has always been 110%.
You are no UCONN fan! You sir are nothing!
Don't watch the next game if you are so embarrassed.....and don't post your negativity......please just go away....are you trying to blame the economy on Jim Calhoun?
Why don't you give your 4 figure donation to a notable charity...maybe it will make you feel better.

Adrian played good today (outside of the free throws). He was passing back out and playing the team concept. When they were playing well in the middle of the year it was when Adrian and Thabeet were passing out and setting up shots or getting it back reset. Against Cuse Adrian and Thabeet brought the ball down and dribbled and you see the result of that. If Jeff is a primary scoring option in sets we are in trouble. If he is rebounding, taking face up shots, and passing we will be fine.
