Okay, so the 2018 season has wrapped up for UConn football, and while expectations were modest heading in, this year’s Huskies managed to fall short of those. A 1-11 finish is not what anyone was hoping for, but Randy Edsall’s version of events paint the football program as a helpless entity when he took over.
The reality is that he’ll have plenty of time and a long leash to get this thing going in the right direction, since UConn definitely can’t afford to fire him or deal with more turnover. So maybe blowing it all up and trying to build anew makes sense?
Our first confidence poll for Edsall, around this time last year, overwhelmingly voiced support for him after one season.
Unlike last year, 2018 was an unmitigated disaster from start to finish. The program’s very existence is being called into question by much more than message boards these days, with prominent local and national media types suggesting UConn strongly consider shutting down the program.
To be fair, Randy Edsall did inherit a tough situation, one very different from the situation he started with in his first run with the Huskies. He recruited well in the class of 2017 and 2018, and his hire of John Dunn as offensive coordinator seems to have worked out well. David Pindell’s senior year was wasted by an intentional decision to be the worst defense ever, but hey, at least Edsall got that kind of talent into the door. The quarterback crew seems to be legit and so does the offensive line for the first time in years.
So are these just extremely painful growing pains or signs of a program gone amok? Let us know what you think.
We ask if you’re satisfied with the past two years... obviously a 4-20 record is not what you want to see, so also consider the direction of the program and whether you think things will get better in the future.
Are you satisfied with the job Randy Edsall is doing through two seasons as UConn Football Head Coach?
