TheRoundUp 8/25: Jesse Joseph is hurt

Football notes: DE Joseph out with knee injury - UConn sports - Connecticut News
DE Jesse Joseph did not practice, and it doesn’t look like he will for some time. Coach Paul Pasqualoni said very little on the subject but it looks like the junior from Laval, Quebec, could be out for a while. - UConn has something special in Teggart
"I don't know if there's ever comfort when you have to kick a field goal, whoever's kicking," Pasqualoni said Wednesday. "It does give you comfort in that you have an experienced guy there who's been through it. I like his approach. I like how serious he is about it. His approach is what it should be. He's not aloof or distracted. He's focused. That's comforting. He'll be a factor for us."

Starting quarterback at UConn still a mystery - The Middletown Press : Serving Middletown, CT
McEntee, asked about where he stands, said he thinks he’s even with the other guys in the competition, naming Nebrich and McCummings but not Box. Just a faux pas? Possibly. Still, Pasqualoni wasn’t giving up much in the way of information. "Number one, we want to be sure," Pasqualoni said. "Number two, why give out information if you don’t have to? I’d rather collect information than give it out."

Hey Folks ... My Last Post To Say Goodbye Before Handing The Keys To Dom Amore - UCONN | Men's Basketball
Anyway, when I entered this business as a 22-year-old kid in 1999, beginning with answering phone calls and covering high school swimming, all I wanted was to work hard, learn a lot, move up, earn a full-time position and eventually be asked to produce the most important words for the paper I grew up reading, about the team I grew up following. To be the UConn men's basketball beat writer for The Courant was reaching the mountaintop, to me. I'm extremely proud to have attained my goal, extremely grateful for the opportunity, satisfied in knowing I gave it my all - and ready to move on.

Dom Amore, UConn Men's Basketball Beat Writer, Reporting For Duty - UCONN | Men's Basketball
I've traveled all over the country and once to Japan for The Courant, but I've never lived anywhere but Connecticut. I like it that way. I last covered UConn basketball semi-regularly as sports editor of the Milford Citizen in the late 1980s, ending with the NIT final in 1988, so it's been a while. But the Huskies' place in the hearts of Connecticut fans hasn't changed much since then, only grown stronger. I know the  passion, I've felt it every day of my career in whatever corner of the state, or continent, I've been in.
