    My take is any good the AD did with the coaches tour, he just ruined.
    " the school has tried to make a push to get fans into the seats in East Hartford this season — not to mention in Storrs and Hartford for basketball games — with a summer of public events and pleas. "
    I've continued to support these guys thru thick and thin, but he's not gonna get the fickle CT fans to buy tickets to seven strait years of losing in FB and with what KO did to the BB team lately by saying:

    “We need our fan base to step up and be accountable if they want to have a quality football program and quality programs in general,” Benedict said. “You’ve got support the programs through thick and thin. That’s what great programs do. We have to try to re-engage our fan base and get them to start buying into that.”

    He's at way to volatile a time in Uconn's sport history with the fanbase. We've been through way to much with CR, getting demoted from the BCS and losing. While way to much old school money is moving out of this tax gouging state... And do these new students or millennials even follow sports ? This guy would have been better off keeping his mouth shut.
