Robbie Frey, we hardly knew ye

With Jordan Todman off to the NFL, Robbie Frey was in line to become the next in what has become a cavalcade of quality running backs at UConn.

But for Frey, who rushed for 389 yards last season as the primary backup at running back, the lure of teaching high school social studies was just too strong to deny any further.

The senior announced Tuesday that instead of usurping Todman's throne, he will forgo his final year of eligibility and transfer to Division II Kutztown, located just miles from his Pennsylvania home, to pursue a graduate degree in teaching.

And suddenly, the deepest position at UConn since its D-IA inception is now an area of legitimate concern.

In addition to Todman and Frey, Meme Wylie will not return despite a year of eligibility remaining, leaving only USC transfer D.J. Shoemate as the lone experienced player in a starting backfield that already must break in a new quarterback and fullback.

Shoemate has the pedigree, but he didn't show much of it last season, despite getting several opportunities early to surpass Frey as Todman's caddy before fading into obscurity.
