NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament 2018: Day 2, Round of 64, Afternoon


Fight On Connecticut

We must fight on for old Connecticut
We must fight on for Blue and White
We all have to sacrifice for our Huskies to win this fight
We must fight on until the glory’s won
‘Til we have vict’ry on our side
And when we win–we’ll pin–the laurel on those Husky heads held high
U-C-O-N-N, U-C-O-N-N, U-C-O-N-N Fight!
We must fight on for old Connecticut and then defend with all our might
We must teach the lesson well, that our DOG is in this fight
So let us never waver in our questAnd rest not ’til we score
Then standing proud– and loud— we’ll cheer our UConn Huskies evermore.
To the core- Huskies evermore!

UConn Husky

U Conn Husky, symbol of might to the foe.
Fight, fight Connecticut, it’s victr’y, Let’s go
Connecticut U Conn Husky, victr’y again for the White and Blue
So go, go, go Connecticut, Connecticut U. Fight!
C-O-N-N-E-C-T-I C-U-T. Connecticut,
Connecticut Husky,
Connecticut Husky, Connecticut C-O-N-N-U. Fight!

I’ll assume you know the lyrics to America the Beautiful and Solidarity Forever.

Stratogale! April 23rd, ’57! Cape caught in a jet turbine! Metaman, express elevator! Dynaguy, snagged on takeoff! Splashdown, sucked into a vortex!

No capes! – Edna Mode

Anyway, you know where my head’s at and the Lady Huskies stand a mere 6 victories away from yet another 38 – 0 season.

It’s actually worse than you think because except for Mississippi State they’ve already played all of the contenders and won so that’s my prediction for the Final. Muffet is pre-pissed at the NCAA because she once again finds herself on the wrong side of the bracket and is going down in the Semi Finals if she makes it that far.

Should Geno and the Ladies falter at any point he’ll put on his “disappointed” face and commiserate with the Seniors disappearing into the maw of the WNBA and tell the rest of them that next year is coming sooner than they think and they better be ready to work their asses off because this level of performance is unacceptable.

In a way it’s worse than if he screamed and yelled at them.

I’m not kidding that Coaches who have graduated from Geno’s program are going to dominate the future of Lady’s Basketball because I’ve seen Jen Rizzotti work. I believe in fact, given the opening in the Men’s program, UConn could do worse than to hire one themselves.

When TMC and I were discussing last night’s stunning upset of Virginia by University of Maryland, Baltimore County she said- “You know, they play like UConn.”

Yes, yes they do.
