  • Aug. 26: UConn Football, Expect Big Year From Howard

    Aug. 26: UConn Football, Expect Big Year From Howard

  • Connecticut Must Retreat From The Shore

    Connecticut Must Retreat From The Shore

    Can't separate ACC, Big East? Why care?

    'Undersized' RBs like Eric Cleveland and Jalen Singleton get the short end of the stick
    When it was time to be measured at Central Michigan's football camp last summer, Bishop Moore tailback Jalen Singleton stepped up, straightened his torso and leaned toward the tape measure fixed to the wall. It began at 5 feet 6 inches. Singleton's head...

    The Prospector: Kickers getting extra work hoping to land college scholarships
    At most high school football practices, there will be a person off to the side, by himself, kicking a couple of balls around and chasing them down. He's anonymous. He may join the squad at the end of practice for sprints. He'll be in the huddle for the...
  • Dixon's Journey Made Him A Leader

    Dixon's Journey Made Him A Leader
    Andre Dixon took us into his locker room. Randy Edsall took us into his heart. It was quite a tour. UConn saved its most complete performance for last. The Huskies ended the longest football season known to man Saturday by picking up the yoke a final...

    Conference realignment could trickle down to ACC
    - Nebraska's Big 10 decision could come by Friday - ACC might have to act to save schools or expand - Can you see an ACC with West Virginia or Connecticut? Concluding yet another what-if conversation about conference realignment Tuesday, a plugged-...
  • Watson Triumphs On A Day That Had It All

    If you saw the pitching wedge Bubba Watson topped from a fairway bunker into the water on the 17th hole, you saw a piece of it. If you saw his monster drive on 18, the one that bounced off the cart path 396 yards into Travelers Championship legend, yes,...
