Nice to have a coach who is completely aware and reflective to the media.
EVERYTHING that Dan said !......Whether it was the matador D that overplayed to much or missing on steals and letting CCSU blow by's, way to often. The hedging to far on the help ball screens, then getting to far out and not rotating back fast enough (except for Whaley). The starting line-up which could change, that was a better match-up for CCSU's smaller line-up. As DH points out, it was more like being a secret scrimmage because of the 2 week lay-off.

It's gotta kill good coaches like him, who are all control freaks anyway ( that's why they win) to try to prepare in these conditions. Hartford will be a different challenge line-up wise to prepare for, because they have alot more size with a bunch of international bigs. Uconn's playable depth, that will get deeper, is startling and may be the biggest challange for Dan on defining their roles and bringing them all into a comfort zone .....with PT and on offense as a group.

It’s refreshing to hear a coach bitch about a 27 point win On a night we hit triple digits, Blades. With Ollie we would have won that game by 5 and He would have been happy and ‘proud’ of his team in the presser After.

i hope this season has A march or April madness, because this team has unlimited potential.

True and then he would go on and it was so saddening listening to KO praise the Columbia's of the world, etc, after his teams stunk up the place. Dan is such the opposite and it's no BS, kinda like the HOF'er who used to be here.
