Jim Calhoun will only miss one game because of a mysterious illness, according to Kyle Muncy, the school's sports information director.

Muncy blasted my reporting that it was possible -- possible -- Calhoun could miss more games.

And it's indeed possible Calhoun will only miss one game. I said that before.

However, the problem is the school won't say what's wrong, and they won't say when Calhoun is coming back.

It's all extremely vague.

We'll get more clarification in the post-game but I'll stress what I wrote before: there were people close to the situation who were very concerned that Calhoun might miss more time.

No one said it was going to happen. Only the possibility was stressed.

Muncy reinterated that Calhoun has missed games before, 21 total, if you count the five he missed because of prostate cancer.

UConn is trying to make it sound like Calhoun missing NCAA Tournament games is a regular thing, happens all the time.

He'll be back, maybe for the next game, but this entire thing is extremely strange.

Sounds like he finally had too much scotch, which is a pretty impressive feat when you consider that he is a world-class drunk.

 No one was harassing anyone until the UConn guy blasted Freeman. Freeman is doing his job to find out what is going on and UConn comes at him like that. That school has always been a disgrace and will always will be.

Good Lord people.... If the man is sick do you think that they want all these people harrassing the school???  The kids are trying to play a game and WIN a game .... The Huskies are a well coached team and I am sure that they will be ok...  Cut the guy a little slack...

I find it strange that they're getting so defensive.
