Not sure if this has been brought up here before -- probably not seeing that it's virtually invisible -- but UConn has added a third star to its sorta-see-through back design thingy to signify the third title. (via the incomparable Uni Watch)
I am going to thoroughly enjoy the Andre Drummond "era." (Via @AndreDrummond03)
Former UConn soccer star Bobby Rhine, the program's first MLS draft pick, died Monday night, after suffering a heart attack. Rhine was a two-time All-American, as well as a great student, selected as an Outstanding Scholar Athlete by the UConn Club in 1999. Rhine had recently retired following a long MLS career, and had just started the next chapter of his life- as the voice of FC Dallas. He became well-known for his passion, and his experiences & wit were the hallmark of his broadcasts, as well as his twitter persona @BobbyRhine. Rhine had tweeted/talked in the past about how much he enjoyed his time in Storrs, still following the team from afar in the years after he left. The men are again in the national title mix, but their return to national relevance in the 90's was built, in part, by the hard work of Bobby Rhine. Rhine's offensive skill helped bridge the gap between the end of one legendary coaching era (Joe Morrone) and the start of another (Ray Reid). He was just 35 years old. He leaves behind his wife and two children. (Image: Bobby Rhine [foreground] calls an FC Dallas match [credit: FC Dallas])
