"Follow the Duke, Stanford, Davidson, model - true student athletes and worry more about education and graduation rates. Also look at "character" issues before recruiting street thugs. If the record suffers at least the Residents of Ct, Uconn students, and Uconn Alumni can be proud of their tax payer supported institution. I actually miss the days of the Yankee Conference! "
1) What have those schools won recently?
2) What character issues were known about these players prior to them attending UConn? I'm not aware of any publically known issues, so I'm not sure how any of these guys are "street thugs".
3) Athletes don't care about education and graduation rates, it's the nature of the beast.
Caron Butler- Calhoun knew about his past ( he was in jail )= street thug, johnny selvie = also a street thug, tony robertson= street thug, but i think you need players like that on your team, the game is not a finesse game, they battle. the big east is a physical conference.
