Putting one of our UConn squads in the spotlight

To refresh your memory, UConn men’s basketball made a power move a few weeks ago by stealing strength and conditioning guru Mike Rehfeldt from former AAC rival, Cincinnati. Rehfeldt’s addition is of particular interest due to the acclaim he earned at Cincy for bulking up and churning out NBA draft picks in what was known as the “Monster Factory.”

Huskies fans should be excited to see that “Monster Factory 2.0” is up and running as evidenced by these pics of players’ insane gains:

It’s been over a week since the passing of Stanley Robinson, and not a day goes by that we don’t think of our dearly departed Sticks.

If you’re of the same sentiment and want to help the Robinson family honor their son’s life, please consider donating to the Stanley Robinson Memorial Fund. Proceeds will be given to the Robinsons so they can pay for a funeral service and properly lay their son to rest.
