Does anyone know the rules about the public attending? I live in Cheshire and would love to attend. If not I might just "go for a jog" (walk) around the track.

I know it's not good but I honestly don't know what to make it. It pretty much describes me.

I think Warde Manuel is a great hire for the program. As a UConn alum it is too bad that he is going so soon because I think he would have gotten us out of the American conference soon but nevertheless I think he left a positive mark on the program. (I am a bigger fan of Michigan football than UConn athletics). One thing that I don't think has been mentioned yet that I thought would be interesting to you is that during his tenure at UConn, UConn won more national championships across all sports programs than all Division 1 colleges other than Oregon. So he knows how to lead a winner. One thing in the post that is incorrect is that Warde did not build the football program at UConn. UConn became a 1-A program in 2000 and was a member of the Big East from 2004-2012, beating South Carolina in the bowl game in 09-10 and reaching the Fiesta Bowl against Oklahoma 2010-11. Regardless of this I think he made a good hire in Bob Diaco as he was handed a terrible situation with Paul Pasqualoni.
-Unrelated side story I thought I would share. In the 2013 Michigan vs. UConn football game @ UConn a friend of mine and I who is also a UM fan wore Maize Michigan football Jerseys in the front row of the student section and with a few minutes left in the game were escorted out of the stadium by police "for our own safety."
