Sports Illustrated reported this (http://college-football.si.com/2013/04/18/new-uconn-helmets/?sct=obnetwork) and it was spotted by an eagle-eye reader of this blog. (I won't mention his name because I want folks to think I have many people out there on the street coming to me with hundreds of ideas for this blog).
Now, many of you may not be aware that the Big East, the league in which UConn competes, is falling apart. In fact, the UConn football schedule this year includes such eclectic opponents as Towson Unviversity, near Baltimore, which plays in the Colonial Athletic Assocation (far from a Tier One football league) and the University of Michigan, one of the premier football programs in history, featuring grads such as New England Patriot quarterback Tom Brady and NFL Hall of Famer and broadcaster Dan Dierdorf, not to mention former President of the Untied States Gerald Ford, but I just did mention him.
As Sports Illustrated points out, more than helmets will be devouring the Huskies this year when the Michigan Wolvesines visit Storrs, Conn., on Sept. 21. Mark your calendars.
Moral of the story? I'm open to suggestions (do I hear a contest coming, so I can determine how many people actually read this blog?? Nah, not sure I want to know).
