One of the things that was kicked around last week but never fully developed was the love/hate relationship with UConn. The hate or dislike is easy enough because they are a conference rival. I don't know that you could ever love or even like a conference rival. But when I think of UConn, I can point to a couple of instances where they hold a special place.
The murder of Jasper Howard was awful. But it did provide us with the opportunity to show some compassion as a fanbase. Even if just for a second, we were able to comfort a team and a school that went through a horrible episode. The loss to UConn last year was the beginning of the end for Bill Stewart as coach at WVU. So I guess we can thank them for that. Also, like UConn we lost our coach to another school. So we can sympathize.
While I may never like you, UConn. I do hope you get to throw that egg for real some day if it makes you feel better. Me personally, I still take issue with the way Rodriguez left WVU. When I tie that together with they way I personally saw him kiss and make up with WVU boosters after the Alabama episode, I can certainly understand why the Huskey would want to throw an egg or ten at Edsall.
