UConn Advances To Third Final Four

Care to explain what you're implying, please? If the player wearing a suit had been Ed Nelson or Jake Voskuhl would you have made that comment?  (Mar 29, 2009 | post #17)

UConn Advances To Third Final Four

Congratulations to the Huskies. They adapted and found a way to win with Plan B. Now, let's hope that JC can keep Hash in the lane on D so we can stick with Plan A and win this thing. The kids can forestall those who'd enjoy sullying JC's legacy because of an officious investigation of an irrelevant player. Instead, they can weave him a richly-deserved third national championship. It was a tremendous weekend. Here's a toast to lowering the curtain with a pair of Geno specials. Go Huskies!  (Mar 29, 2009 | post #15)

Austrie A Light Amid Storm

JJ: Great choice for your subject. You mentioned the negative story -- because intellectual honesty and credibility required it. But you didn't belabor it. Instead, praised a special kid who played a super game. When Craig hit his three in the second half, it became clear that this team will play on Saturday. Very nice story.

Double Standard Was Set In 2004

Very nice article, JJ. It's poignant, controlled, avoids the maudlin and makes a welcome pun on "double standard." I confess that with those words in the title, I would have avoided the piece had someone else wrote it. But you earned our trust decades ago. So I knew we were in safe hands. Thanks.

Rock Solid Performance By Adrien

"And because [Adrien, the rock] was [a 'bolder'], the Huskies outscored their opponents by a whopping 82 points in the first two rounds of the tournament and head to Glendale, Ariz., with a full head of steam." JJ, you showed restraint in declining the "Boilermaker " analogy. We'd have forgiven you. Great article. For me, the subtext is A.J. Price's analysis. He's starting to sound like a coach. When he finishes playing, I'm sure he'll make a fine coach. An apprenticeship under JC and George Blaney would be a perfect first job. 1999, 2004, ? Best, Jamie (just a footsoldier in the J.C.

UConn Beats Texas A & M To Reach Sweet 16

This was their best game since, at least, the Marquette game -- maybe even since Louisville (doesn't that one seem a long time ago?). I feel better about playing Purdue than I would playing UW. Karma is due to balance out for the West Coast Huskies someday; I'm just glad it won't be Thursday. Great game, UConn! Best, Jamie NYC  (Mar 22, 2009 | post #10)

Calhoun Not Showing Any Ill Effects

Nice article, JJ. By this point, you understand Coach Calhoun well. And you're honest and object. I view this as a -- deservedly -- generous piece. Thank you.  (Mar 21, 2009 | post #9)

Definitely A Money Coach

JJ: This was fantastic. You told the story with the fairness, equanimity, wisdom, and compassion that most writers would be unable to match. Your line about A.J. being "knighted " was sublime. And the Dedham example was beautiful. Thanks very much.  (Feb 26, 2009 | post #10)
