How UConn will deal with tragedy

Posted on: October 19, 2009 12:50 pm
 
It will be a tough day, week and some tough months for Randy Edsall. The Connecticut coach has to guide the program through sad times after the stabbing death of cornerback Jasper Howard over the weekend.

Part of Edsall's Monday will consist of picking Howard's parents up at the airport and taking them to the hospital to speak to Howard's attending physician at the time of his death. As of Monday morning there were no arrests in the killing.

Edsall also said that a couple of players might miss this week's game at West Virginia.

"There will be guys I have to sit down and talk with," Edsall said, "at least two of our guys. One guy had Jasper in his arms. One applied pressure to the wounds. I know those guys are deeply affected."

UConn players will wear a "JH" on their helmets going forward.

Hawk you're an idiot.  This will be a trying week for the entire UCONN team, but the experience will hopefully make all those involved better for having endured.  May Jasper Howard Rest in Peace!

Hey Dodd

Why don't you have a conversation with your colleague Darst.  He might be able to set you straight regarding the PAC 10's caliber as a conference.  Unlike you, Darst used REAL data to develop an opinion about conference strength.  Not surprising to anyone, the SEC is the top conference, but look at who is number 2!  See Below:

Based on an average ranking, here are the overall conference ratings:

1. SEC -- 34.00
2. Pac-10 -- 40.40
3. Big 12 -- 42.58
4. Big Ten -- 44.36
5. Big East -- 44.63
6. ACC -- 48.58
7. Mountain West -- 62.67
8. WAC -- 74.89
9. C-USA -- 81.42
10. MAC -- 90.53
11. Sun Belt 101.00
