Spring practice for the Connecticut Huskies wrapped up this Saturday in front of an enthusiastic audience at Rentschler Field, as Randy Edsall’s team looked to improve after a 3-9 mark in the first year of the coach’s second stint in East Hartford.
Every Day Should Be Saturday was on site with a full crew, gathering in all the excitement of another year of American Athletic Conference football from the 2010 Fiesta Bowl runners-up.

... you didn’t actually try to click that, did you?
Oh, it’s so much worse than I thought. Come on, come in, sit down. Lie down. We need to talk about this.
I understand it’s been a long offseason and a longer winter. The title game was over three months ago, and yet it’s snowing outside today. It’s been hard on you. It’s been hard on all of us. I myself almost clicked a link about Cincinnati football the other day.
You have to learn how to cope, and this isn’t healthy.
Connecticut spring football? Take a look at what you’ve become.

Horrifying, isn’t it?
Listen, you’re really deep in this. We’re going to try to bring you back slowly. Try this.
Did you try to click that, too?
[slaps you across the face]
[throws a glass of water in your face]
YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO THIS.
[slaps you again]
COME BACK TO THE LIGHT.

THE POWER OF CHRYST COMPELS YOU.
[slumps down, out of breath]
I don’t know. Maybe it’s too late for you. Maybe you can’t be saved. But I have to try. I have to know that there’s still some hope left for you. Because if there isn’t, there may not be hope left for any of us. There may not be hope that this winter will ever end.
I’m going to trust you. I’m going to give you two links - they’re real links this time, they’ll play actual videos, I swear. I need you to look inside yourself, consider what path you want to take in life - which link you’re going to click.
And then I’m going to leave you alone with your choice.
I believe in you.
