Hartford No Match For No. 2 UConn

Full story: Hartford Courant

The XL Center had quite the buzz Monday night when the concern of a large crowd seemed to match the frustration of UConn coach Jim Calhoun.

I was at the game -- yeah, yeah, I know, you bought the ticket, you can do (almost) whatever you want with it -- but I had two know-it-all guys near me mercilessly yelling at and whining about the team when the Hawks were still in the game. They were telling their buddies (more like whoever would listen) what kind of offense UConn should run, how Coach Calhoun should substitute, etc. I leaned over and told my mate how awful it is when some people are up here booing and getting on these 18-20-year-old kids whom they are not paying with their ticket prices -- one of them heard me and told me, "Well, they're playing lousy basketball." I rolled my eyes at him while biting my lower lip and not saying anything. Perhaps if these people know so much then they should be out there instead of the Hall-of-Fame head coach? I think I should go to the offices of some of these people and start heckling them mercilessly outside their cubicles when they make a mistake at their jobs.

this is the cupcake part of their schedule they don't get overly hyped for these opponents although they should play with a little more poise they get lost because the talent level is beneath them. You can't critisize a win but they must bring good habits to every game no matter who the opponenent they lacked consistancy last year and they need to correct that this year

Can't wait till they pull this kinda crap against a semi formidable opponent. They'll get buried. And spare me the comments about "playing to the level of their competition". I really don't know why Cupcake Calhoun plays these games. It's just doing his team a great disservice!!
