Wake up call or over rated? It's a lot different when you don't plan the "cupcake" teams isn't it?

uconn seemed like they had no interest in the game, it appeared that there was too much passing, this is not a bad thing at times, but ya need to shoot to put points on the board - come on uconn - its only gona get harder from here on out -

Maybe overrated but I wonder every season why they play such a weak schedule the first part of the season,(Fairfield etc), and then they stumble like this when they hit decent teams.

Kind of like the women's schedule where there are only a handful of teams nationally that are competetive and the local media make such a big deal over the one sided scores etc. They believe their own press clippings, then when the NCAA's come they run into Pat Summet's team or one of the other 2 or 3 good teams that exist and go down in flames....

Dont blame it all on the coach.The assistants have a lot to do with the scouting of teams and the prep of games.Maybe coach Jim is getting a lot of bad infor before he makes the right moves? Lets back the coach a great leader and person and look for better days for the team
