UConn has to feel on top of the world now, they beat us on the floor and on the recruiting trail. That’s like winning the power ball to them.

I mean that is sort of true in terms of the ‘what have you done for me lately’ mantra. I don’t know if he was at the game in MSG but it obviously wasn’t a good look for us regardless of Howard.

Still, I never liked this kid’s aloof/stoic demeanor. I don’t care how good his jumper looks.

I’d rather have him at UConn than Pitt. We play Pitt twice a year in meaningful games. We play UConn once, if that, in a relatively meaningless game. He isn’t going to change either program’s fortunes, but he might make enough of a contribution in a game against us to hang a loss on us. More likely that happens at Pitt than UConn.

Who cares? If they improve and play hard for their coach I don’t care what said coach does on the sidelines. Never cared what Buzz, Dixon, etc., do. It’s irrelevant obviously.
These friggin sideshow egomaniacs detract from the sport. College b-ball is worse off because of these goofy coaches.

Disagree. It becomes an issue here. Far more important things to pay attention to than what the coaches are doing. Besides, if/when I do pay attention to it’s entertainment. Sometimes it postively detracts from the poor play on the court.
