Joe D’s Notebook: After The Tulane Game

It was more of the same for the UConn football team in their season finale Saturday against Tulane. The only difference was it came against a team that came into the game with six straight losses, making the 38-13 drubbing by the Green Wave even tougher to swallow.

hat now? That’s the question many UConn football fans are asking after Saturday’s embarrassing 41-3 loss at East Carolina, an East Carolina team that had lost five straight.

Joe D’s Notebook: The Houston Recap

For the better part of 12 ½ minutes on Thursday night, the UConn Huskies played the 6th ranked football team in the country dead even. The Huskies managed three first downs, held Houston to one and forced a three and an out on the Cougars second possession.
