Well, it looked like we might have had a season for a while. It was a fun month while it lasted. UConn was embarrassed by a MAC team for the second straight year, losing to Western Michigan despite the Broncos playing much of the second half without star QB Alex Carder. The Huskies were miserable in every phase of the game and a combination of stupid mistakes, dropped passes and costly turnovers did ultimately did them in. The Huskies are now 2-2 and while they should expect to beat Buffalo next week and probably Temple in mid-October, finding six wins (and bowl eligibility) on the remainder of the schedule isn't easy.

We'll have more on this disaster later, but if twitter is any indication the fanbase is going to be in a foul mood after this one. In case you were wondering, Paul Pasqualoni is owed $1.7 million next season. The total value of his contract after this season is $5.4 million. The cost of buying out his contract after this season is $1.75 million. If Warde Manuel wants to make a move to get his own guy in finances should not be a problem.
