Joe D's Notebook: The USF Recaphe start of the second half of the football season for the UConn Huskies proved to be similar to much of the first half of the season.

And so UConn’s narrow 13-10 win over Virginia carries the same value as a 45-10 win would be. It goes in the all-important left column in the standings. UConn again had to play from behind and yes, that’s a disturbing trend. In fact, in their three games, the Huskies have led for only 10
