UConnJob has slowly started their swan dive. They aren't in a P5 conference so their revenue is way less and facilities will struggle to keep up with other programs. Elite recruits are starting to notice. While UConn still recruits very well they are down from their peak days and still trending downward slowly as they lose more and more elite recruits to ND, Baylor, Stanford and even Louisville. Sooooon: Tennessee will out recruit them too (fingers crossed).

Geno better hope the ACC or B1G let them come crawling in.

Hope coach Kellie would ignore him. He's just looking for attention.

That is their ONLY hope, but I don't see it happening because UCON has nothing that a Power 5 conference wants.

Swan dive?

They signed the No. 1 and No. 5 recruits in 2018.

They signed No. 21, a top European guard, a double double grad transfer and a No. 1 (2017) transfer from a school you might be familiar with for 2019.

They signed the No. 1 recruit and a great European guard for 2020 with more to come.

No, they didn't win it all the last two seasons (on edit three seasons), but making the final four both years is not a downturn.

The AAC hasn't impacted UConn's recruiting. You win some and you lose some in the recruiting battles.

“He is a clever coach.” What a great clapback! He may be a good coach but he is clever as in sly, not to be trusted, not honorable. Sounds about right for Geno. Make no mistake, in recruiting battles he is pushing the of no consequence argument.
That might work until recruits see our facilities, our crowd support and the Lady Vols For Life that continue to be active with the program. Oh yea, and 8 National Championships etc.

NewDog, you ain't housebroken are ya?

This a LV fan board, and we are saying that Uconn is on the down slide. I am sure your compatriots on the Boneyard would disagree so why don't you go howl with them?

The same thing that happened to their superb mens team will happen to them too. Just like Georgetown, St Johns, and all the other teams of the lessor conferences. It will just take longer for UConn but once it happens it will be relatively fast.

Agree 100%. UConn is especially done if the NCAA passes the pay players bill. UConn couldn't afford a gas station attendant if that happens!

Go Lady Vols!

So Geno lied when he said that Holly was doing great job!
In fairness, A was talking about the perspective from opposing coaches who were the beneficiaries of our largesse.

Yes, but the latter appears to be on double secret probation.

You ever been to Storrs? Went to high school in Connecticut a while back and never understood why kids wanted to go to that dump. Place sucks and they wanted to play baseball for them for the 2 week season they play at home. Went to Colorado instead. Wise decision!

UCONN hasnt won it all in 3 seasons now. Surely, a real fan would know that simple fact. And people still liked the post, not knowing facts. Id be surprised if UCONN won this upcoming season as well. Four years without a title would be surprising coming aftera 4 peat. Oregon will be tough to beat, barring injuries.

Never been there, but with your lack of endorsement & the photo I found, Storrs remains on my MEH places to go. I agree that Colorado is much nicer.
