Why is UCONN so overated every year? Putting them at No. 2 coming off a year they lost in the first round of the NCAAs was ridiculous. They are nowhere near a top ten team either and as the season progresses it will show. It' s time for Calhoun to retire anyhow and Blaney should go back to Holy Cross.

Hope this is first of a string of losses. Gonzaga was a fluke.

Blaney is the real reason UCONN has gotten by so well for years, not Jim C.Holy Cross graduates ar5ound 100% of its players.

Will the real PUCONN please stand up!!!!
That's it,,,good, good!!! Overrated, under powered, under coached, under acheivers. By the way, were was superstar Gee?-Rome last nite?? Too much cognac and weed before the game??? PUCONN should have never been ranked No. 2. 12th?? 15th??? Maybe still too high. Out of the top 20 by end of January would be my guess!!! NIT anyone???

the courant and calhoun have touted this team as special=they stink, thabeet is a project, will never make it in the pro's. doesn't have the offensive ability of a high schooler as monroe showed him
price stinks, can't take over a game and lacks the ability to change with defensive switches
adrien is under sized, but has a future in pro sports as a football player
gavin edwards has ability. but doesn't get the oportunity to get in the flow
stanley is a sometime player, head isn't in the game
dyson will never be a great player, he doesn't have a scorers mentality
uconn has no chemistry, their offense is tired and their coach should have been fired the year he had 5 first round nba draft picks and never made the final four-he is preocccupied with press, hype and his outside life, let him go with a sweet send off and a thank you
these athletes are given a free ride, are treated like royalty and can't repay the gift by putting out a games worth of effort
they are unwatchable
