This article in today’s Connecticut Post was interesting, to say the least. Between Danny Hurley throwing out the first pitch at a Mets game, and UCONN claiming it is NYC’s “Sixth Borough” I had to laugh. Their freakin’ campus is 140 miles from midtown! All the more reason to keep them out of the Big East.

I can tell you they hold alumni events pretty frequently in NYC too

Thanks Tony. I would expect we will hear plenty from the little rat Danny Hurley. I loved how they misspelled his name in the article. I will admit Hurley is not stupid and he will try to get attention in NY by any means as Yukon is diminished playing in that irrelevant and crappy conference. I expect him to weasel his way around to resurrect their brand.

Please most ppl don't even consider Staten Island a borough cause of its proximity and we are only a bridge ride away!

Sorry UConn, you are not in the culture or within proximity of NYC as hard as you may try. On another note jumping on the SI jokes (sorry couldn't resist), one of my friends is from Dongan Hills and he met up with me in the city. I took the LIRR from Ronkonkoma and got to midtown before his "express" bus arrived. The Ronkonkoma train is 80 minutes to Penn. Pretty funny considering that many people make fun of Ronk for being out in the boonies and I beat my friend to the city who technically lives within city limits.

The only Uconn I acknowledge is the Denali (it has more relevance).
