UCONN Stuns Notre Dame IN South Bend 33-30 In Double Overtime

The University of Connecticut football team stunned Notre Dame in double overtime, probably ushering coach Charlie Weiss' exit. The final score of the nationally televised game from South Bend, Indiana (aren't they all for ND?) was 33-30 Good Guys. Click on the title of this post for more on the game but first read these words from UCONN coach Randy Edsall. This was a game dedicated to Jasper Howard, who was killed ON campus just a few short weeks ago. Coach Edsall, his eyes moist with tears of joy and sorrow for his team and for Jazz, said this...

"I'm just so proud of those kids over in the locker room and those assistant coaches," Edsall said. "We persevered today and ended up just making a couple plays at the end that we hadn't been able to make in some of our earlier games. We're just thankful that we were able to finally put together a win," Edsall said. "So now we can take a game ball and send it down to ... the Howard family because I know one thing — that little No. 6 was looking down on us today."

It was truly a touching moment when the winning points were scored shortly before 6pm EST. We all stood, looked up to Heaven at Jazz and cheered at the top of our lungs. SWEET only begins to describe it. But sweet it was.

That's it for this early AM Sunday. I wish you the best as Thanksgiving week approaches rapidly. Remember, you can click on the title of this post for the Hartford Courant's coverage of yesterday afternoon's uplifting UCONN win and BE WELL. Your comments are always welcome and always read and always answered. Thanks. Have a terrific Sunday.
