Give it time.

Before the transfer portal roster depletion, UConn had five FBS wins over the last four seasons. That number will fall.

As UConn struggles to beat any FBS school with an undermanned roster and their crowds dwindle to the hundreds, they will voluntarily drop to FCS or kill the program altogether.

Great schedule but will they have FBS players?

S20, I agree with your points about 95 percent of the time. But I disagree with this one.

The Michigan non-league sked with this trio is very solid on various levels. I don't even remotely feel it's "horrible."

This past year Hawaii was #46
Colorado St was #110
UConn was #125

That's 100% horrible. Kind of schedule that if it's close for them making the playoff that absolutely could keep them out of the playoff. Better hope Iowa, Nebraska, and Illinois are good(those are the crossover opponents this year).


That was this year. By 2026 ... who knows. Hawaii and CSU have been known to have quality teams. And UConn could improve. Three name universities (as opposed to various Sun Belt and MAC programs).

To say "questionable" or "potentially bad," ... I can see that.

But to flat-out say "horrible"???

The schedule is for 2022 and not 2026.

Odds are very high and likely that it's an absolute horrible schedule. Far more likely than it being even a bad schedule.


Odds are that the average of the three will be better in 2022

IRRELEVANT. Everyone knows that in the year 2525 - IF man is still alive... IF woman can survive... they may find... that UConn football will still be bad.

What do you mean? By 2500, football will be played by women, and Geno Auriema will be cloned and be the coach of UConn and they will develop into a dynasty.

Either Hawaii or Colorado State having good years in 2022 is quite plausible.

UConn being substantially improved by 2022, that's a bit more of a stretch.

Quote: Plus, there may be some scheduling of games in other sports between the two schools that could be spurred by this. I don't know.
If word of that came out, it would not be shocking.

I actually kind of like Lipscomb. My grandmother's side of the family were Lipscomb folks.

But my brother and I taught as adjuncts at Belmont. So I root for the Bruins.

(I'm assuming you read where C. Anthony could play a bit today.)

I saw there was an unwarranted 11 point spread favoring the Heels too! 04-wine

21 is gonna be rough, they might wind up with 2 FCS home games, but after that they're in decent shape. The other Independents have a few more games on their future schedules, but UConn is in a solid position. They have a decent amount of P5 home games - Syracuse, Purdue, NC State, Maryland, Duke, BC, and UNC.

One thing by I've noticed is that despite talk that Benedict was in discussions with Yankee Stadium and Fenway for November "neutral site" games, they haven't pulled the trigger on one of those games yet. I wonder if they can use Yankee Stadium as a carrot to get someone to play a one-off neutral site game that counts as a "home" contest. Breaking up a series with two teams (would be nice to somehow take Syracuse's spot @ the Ohio Bobcats and bring them into Rentschler an additional time), getting someone to come into Yankee Stadium for a one-off, and paying a second FCS team gets you to six "home" games total, five at Rentschler, and five FBS "home" games counting Yankee Stadium.
