    Chasing Perfection: Preseason begins (Ep. 42)

    UConn women’s basketball is officially practicing which means the 2021-22 season is creeping closer and closer. On this week’s episode, we discuss the Huskies’ full schedule, which games are the most intriguing, where some of the toughest stretches of the slate are and more. After that, we break down the candidates for UConn’s rotation battle with preseason underway and try to figure out which players will be left out of the mix. Finally, we close with a light preview of First Night but mostly explain why we aren’t that excited for it.

    The UConn Pod: Football is fun?

    The UConn Pod: Football is fun?

    NOTE: This podcast was recorded before the news of Lou Spanos and four other members of the team testing positive for COVID-19.
    On the latest episode of The UConn Pod, Aman, Daniel, and Dan open with a chat about the start of hockey season. The Huskies grabbed a 6-3 win over Sacred Heart to kick-off their highly anticipated (by us, at least) 2021-2022 campaign.
    Next, UConn Blog football writer Luke Swanson joins us to get into a deep convo about the enormous leap the Huskies have seemingly made since changing their head coach, and also potentially offensive coordinator? At the very least, offensive analyst Noel Mazzone seems to be making an impact for this team, both in playcalling and talent assessment.
    And finally, ahead of the football team’s marquee matchup at UMass, we have an interview with Twitter user @CurryHicksSage, who has a podcast that focuses on Minutemen sports. We discussed: Life as an independent, struggles in tackle football, and best places to eat in Amherst.
    Enjoy!

    Chasing Perfection: Debating UConn's non-conference schedule (Ep. 40)

    Chasing Perfection: Debating UConn's non-conference schedule (Ep. 40)

    Chasing Perfection is back from a short summer break and we return with...very little to talk about. We discuss the Never Forget Tribute Classic matchup between UConn and UCLA in Newark before getting into a debate about which of the Huskies’ non-conference opponents are the most exciting.
    After that, we talk about whether or not Maya Moore and Breanna Stewart are locks for the Hall of Fame, wonder if COVID could have more of an affect on the results of this season and share a story about the time Christyn Williams chased a ball into the stands in the NCAA Tournament.

    The UConn Pod: Football Therapy - Part II

    The UConn Pod: Football Therapy - Part II

    Last week, after UConn lost 45-0 to Fresno State to open the season, The UConn Pod wondered out loud if things were as bad as 2019 or if the Huskies still had a chance to reach some sort of success this year.
    This week, head coach Randy Edsall is out after a disastrous, embarrassing loss to Holy Cross, an FCS school that should never be beating UConn at football. The last time UConn as an FBS program lost to an FCS school was against Towson in 2013. On both occasions, it became apparent the Huskies needed a new leader.
    So UConn is forging ahead with a coaching search while defensive coordinator Lou Spanos serves as interim head coach. The Huskies will need to find a way to salvage some sort of respectability this season, which is still possible given some of the future opponents on the schedule.
    On this week’s podcast, Aman, Dan, and Daniel discuss the disappointment of this young season, review the past four years of the Randy Edsall Experience, and also what Edsall’s legacy may be as possibly the best and worst coach in program history.

    The UConn Pod: Football therapy

    The UConn Pod: Football therapy

    This week on The UConn Pod, Aman and the editors Dan discuss the start of fall sports, including solid starts for men’s and women’s soccer... and much less of a solid start for football.
    We reviewed the Huskies’ performance against Fresno State and how it affects our expectations for the season. Also, looking down the schedule, we discussed the potential outcomes for the Holy Cross, Purdue, and Army games and how much we’ll know about this UConn team by then.
    Though it was a frustrating watch Saturday, it was therapeutic to talk about it, hoping it has the same effect for you!

All about the women’s team

I’m sorry I wish they had CLEARLY stated that this is only for the WBB team. Pretty useless for me and I am THE biggest Husky fan there is. Not one iota of MBB news and that makes me upset. Podcast deleted, space made in my phone.

Why are you ignoring the men?

I’m very confused as to why chasing perfection has completely taken over this feed.
