TheRoundUp 8/31: We still don't have a date for the Fordham game

UConn Football Coach Paul Pasqualoni's Passion -
UConn has 15 commitments for 2012 already, a number never reached at this point during the Randy Edsall era. A fascinating Pasqualoni recruit is the state's top player, Masuk-Monroe quarterback Casey Cochran, who would not have committed had Pasqualoni not been the coach.
