Kevin Ollie Fired by UConn

Four years removed from a National Championship, UConn has fired Kevin Ollie.

The Huskies finished Ollie’s sixth year with a 14-18 record.  Yesterday they lost to SMU 80-73 in the American Conference Tournament to drop to 7-11 in conference play.

UConn is attempting to fire Ollie for “just cause.”  Reports say the NCAA is investigating a pair of players for an “impermissible” workout, but let’s be honest, they‘re just searching for a technicality to dump a bad coach.

Congratulations to Aaron Torres. The long-time Huskie fan will no longer suffer…until Rick Pitino takes over.

  1. And Matt quoted my text about UCONN and didn’t give me credit. Oh well, at least he read it. 😉

    • BTW, it was the reference to the fact that both times we lost to UCONN in the tourney it was because their point guards were the hottest players in the country and no one could guard them. 2014 was especially frustrating to lose after all of Aaron’s heroics the previous 3 games.

      And I believe we missed several free throws.

    Pitino came out yesterday saying he wants to coach, and doesn’t care about the level. Coincidence?

      Well, Pitino does have the necessary experience with recruiting violations.

    This app is becoming unusable I would rather pay than have to wait 30 seconds for an add to allow me to get to a post. I understand this is free but I can no longer use this around other people or in an office or while waiting for an appointment. The ads are very loud and sometimes do not let you read the article without closing and reopening the app

      I totally agree. The number of of ads is ridiculous. But if they could just turn off the pics/links to the previous old articles that pop up that would also help.

    • Use Adblock Plus when you are on a PC (it blocks ads on Chrome and Edge…I’m not sure about IE or Firefox), and if your mobile device is IOS, download the Adguard app and use Safari to access KSR. I don’t know about Android, but I’m sure there are some ad blockers on there also.

      You’re right, the app is totally unusable, and KSR is unusable on the browser if you don’t use ad block.

      I ditched the app bc I hate their notifications. I only come on here w an ad blocker browser and it’s fine

      You can turn off the notifications in the settings.

      Here’s a thought, maybe turn down the volume. And it’s only 5 seconds. Or you can keep complaining, because that is easier and takes less effort.

      You can pay and have the ads gone.

    • There is a paid option to remove ads now?

      With a veteran team he inherited. He didn’t win shit after that. Are you going to keep looking like a fool all your life?
