Great for Donald!
Randy road him into the ground and never achieved balance on this team. We won't see until next year what Donald carrying the team did to stunt the team's development. Not Donald's fault as he was the team's best/only weapon. With the bowl win, the Huskies only beat 2 teams with winning records, the D will need to be huge again next year for this team to move forward. Baylor/ND on the road and UNC at home will provide good OOC tests. No passing attack and no Donald could make for a very long season.
Six weeks to LOI day, hopefully this win brings a few more kids to UConn.

If the paint wasn't peeling at halftime, it should have been.

Fortunately, adjustments were made and the team came through!

Good Win!

Good win. Terrific effort by Brown. What is D.Brown's 40 time? Questions about his break away speed and explosiveness. He'll need to have a tremendous combine. He's a 3rd rounder depending on what other running backs come out early.

Please! There is no way he would have changed his mind if Edsall wasn't assured Donnie would be picked up in the first round or early second. I'd be surprised if he even attended the combine. He's a stud, live with it.

Agreed. Late 1st early 2nd round for this guy. Gald to see he came to his senses and will be entering the draft. Staying one more year just puts his future at risk playing at a program that will be nothing better than 7-5 for a while. Good luck to him.

Agree here also. Buffalo's nothing more than a high Div.II team at best. Thank God for the 200 bowl games out there or UConn wouldn't smell a post season game.

congrats to UConn on another average season. Time to search for a coach that is not satisfied with cupcake wins and expected losses.

UConn's win against Buffalo is certainly better than a loss. Ask B.C.
Ask Michigan... Oh that's right, they didn't even make one of those "200" bowls.

Without Donald Brown, Uconn has a Div.II offense. I cringe when next season rolls around and he is in the nfl.

Great for Donald Brown! I wish him well, he was just about the whole team. As for the win, I can't say much. Six turnovers leading to 20 points, it's quite likely that any other bowl team would have beat UCONN. It's lucky they drew such a lowly bowl game, and, as it turns out, a really weak team in Buffalo. It will be interesting to see what kind of a team is built upon next year.

Without Donald Brown next year, UCONN's going to suck, and everybody will really have a reason to complain.

Nothing but the best to a class act in Donald Brown. It will be fun to watch him on Sundays.
Now, Randy, fire yourself as special teams coach and use the opportunity to get a creative offensive coordinator and a special teams coach who can provide better leadership than you apparently did. The mistakes were laughable...but true to form for the season.

Good old Connecticut A&M another listless victory over a university that promotes scholarship over sports. Bring back the Yankee Conference!

Was cool to see people walking around up here wearing UCONN hats and shirts all weekend.

Great job by Donald Brown and his teammates. Another bowl win is a step forward for the program.

Something omitted from the article: This year, the International Bowl had it's highest attendance ever. The article mentions the attendance, but not the significance.

Given the fact that the Courant ran an article last week about slow ticket sales, it's odd that the record setting attendance was ignored.

The reason the bowl had it's highest attendance is that Buffalo is across the lake from Toronto!! Duh!

I'm happy they physically dominated Buffalo, as they should have. And it's great to see Brown rewarded and Lorenzen going out with a win.

However, another mediocre season and this Bowl win allows Edsall to stick around longer. It sounds terrible, but I almost want next year to be a disaster to turn the heat up on the guy. I honestly believe they need a new regime to take the next step in the program's progression. I've said it before, the facilities alone can lead UConn to bowl eligibility.

It's great that you have a grasp on the obvious, but still doesn't explain why the attendance record was never mentioned in the Courant.
