Manuel...did you not live and work in CT before you retired...agreed they achieved an amazing feat for both their mens/womens program,,,,been a UCONN b-ball follower since the 60's when a local player from Poughkeepsie NY Wes Bialasoukia was a hot shooting All American Guard

However, if you look at UCONN's NCAA ranking for Division 1 b-ball athletes who earn a degree in 5 years, they are in the bottom tier

I trust their new coach (who I like) will build a program where they excel in both areas and I hope the school structures his contract with incentives that equally rewards ($$$$$$) him for achieving both objectives

FYI...the best school to send your child to play college sports at a big time program and earn a degree in 5 years....Notre Dame
