Re: Now let's talk about the team lineup.

Obviously CCSU is a few seasons away from 20 wins but rest assured Patrick will field a team of kids who can play this coming season.

As you guys know, at this level, coaches have connections who have connections who have connections...

We’ll be OK.

Re: It's official: Hartford to D-III

If I remember correctly it was not called D1, D2, or D3. College BB was divided into the College division (which was D2 and D3) and the University Division (which was D1). Also, around that time, College Division Southern Illinois University, the #1 College Division ranked team, opted out of the Co...

Re: Univ. of New Haven to NEC?

I agree Hoops. I think football is the decision maker here. UNH, IMHO, is actually a perfect fit for the NEC academically, geographically and athletically.

Re: New Regents Leader

His connection with the EE doesn’t bother me so much as long as he completely severs his ties. What DOES concern me is his (IMHO) relatively weak resume. A MFA is his highest degree? Don’t get me wrong, a Masters degree of any type is a great accomplishment and higher education does not necessarily ...

Re: It's official: Hartford to D-III

Sky and NB, Right on!!! =D> Sky - I've read many of those articles and I will be posting some of them on this site in the future. The consensus was Hartford had an advantage because it was private and could be agile, whereas CCSU was unorganized and very bureaucratic (some things haven't changed) :...

Re: It's official: Hartford to D-III

Wow! Didn’t think they’d do it. It’s literally one of my biggest fears for us. I really hope no one gets any bright ideas in NB. Now is a time to capitalize as written above, not sit around. Figure it out, get us to the AE. It fits for us, it always has and our biggest blocker from it is now a non ...

Re: It's official: Hartford to D-III

This is huge news. What many folks don’t realize is that UH has been in economic straits for years. As was eluded to in an earlier post, UH has more issues than athletics and financial issues top the list. I’m usually never the one to gloat over another’s misfortune but I’ll make an exception here. ...

Homecoming 2021

Just got an e-news “magazine” from CCSU. Looks like Homecoming is on for the weekend of 10/9 against Colombia.

I’m able to get Spirit Airline RT for $150...a lot cheaper, easier and faster than flying up myself.

Fingers crossed that this fall season works out. 🤞

Well, it’s a headline in the Courant yesterday. That’s sorta official I guess. I don’t subscribe on line so I couldn’t read the article.

Re: Big Board!

Great to hear! Looking forward to the official announcement on the website.

By the way, this hire should calm any fears of dropping out of D-1...at least for now. 🤞

Re: Big Board!

I’m sticking my neck out here knowing I’m in the minority and I’ll get some pushback but try not to be so hard on Dr. Toro. I doubt if she will sabotage the process. I’ve met with her several times both professionally and at (pre Covid) social events and rest assured, she wants what is best for CCSU...

Re: Women's team departure- 2021

Yes it is. 😉 UT is highly regarded down here. They have a great D-2 baseball program as well. I was surprised to learn that at one time, UT was pretty successful in football at the D-1 level back in the early 70’s, playing teams like Miami and Ole Miss at the old Tampa Stadium (AKA The Sombrero) but...

Re: Coaching Carousel 2021

Oh I thought about what I’m talking about and by all means, I did consider boosters. UConn’s boosters would be far far fewer without the state getting involved years ago improving the profile of UC Athletics and we would improve our booster support if the state gave CCSU a decent amount of support. ...

Re: Coaching Carousel 2021

Just ticks me off that the state can’t see that two programs can be successful and share some of the immense wealth. It’s not like Shea Ralph was some mastermind behind Geno is it? I had a difficult time following the tweet because I’m not “up” on the topic but I think they are referring to UH as f...
