    Geno did not coach? You know this how? You were at the game?

  2. UConn Cult says:

    Geno did not coach in the 2nd half last night. He quit. Is that what you call leading by example? That’s probably how he runs practice with the 2nd team. He quits on them.

  3. Dr Joe says:

    Geno,as tough as he is, has a soft spot for former players especially when they are coaches and members of National Championship teams as Jen and Jamelle. There is no reason to run up a score against weaker teams and he did play the subs for a good part of the second half. It is up to him and his coaches to continue to motivate the younger players and even if they perform poorly at times, they are gaining experience.

  4. Jamison says:

    Threw the game? Most teams ratchet things back when it becomes a blowout no matter who the coaches are. What good would it have done to win by 80?

  5. No Wonder ESPN Televises Bowling says:

    That “game” was an embarrassment for WCBB. UConn “threw” the game to avoid running up the score on Cincy. How is that good for the sport?

    The sports world in CT praised Faris for her 2nd half effort against Duke. Tonight she gave less than 100%, as did the rest of the UConn starters. Say bye bye to 1st teamm All American.

    UConn’s 2nd team tonight will be the 1st team in 2014-15. They were horrendous against a terrible team.

    How exactly does tonight’s game help UConn get ready for Baylor and Notre? Oh, that’s right. It doesn’t. Tonight was all about not making Jamelle too unhappy.

    Great lesson for kids. Everyone gets a trophy.
