Game day is different than most days for the guys at UConn, especially on game days against the big rivals on the weekend. The Big East Conference is one of the best and toughest conferences in collegiate sport. This weekend UConn takes on USF (University of South Florida), one of their biggest rivals. Friday night's game was tight, and was held at the New Britain Stadium- home of the Rock Cats, AA affiliate of the Minnesota Twins. USF took and early lead plating 1 in the 1st, but UConn responded in the 3rd and took a 2-1 lead. The lead held until the 6th, when the Bulls (USF) evened it up. Score stayed tied until the 8th, when the Bulls pulled ahead. When you face a team with almost equal ability, it becomes all about execution. Doing the small things, executing a bunt, moving a runner over, making the routine plays. It makes all the difference. After a loss, there is a deafening silence in the dugout. These guys give every bit of themselves, they are warriors and leave it all out on the field. They hate to lose. Let's see how they bounce back. I, for one, think they will. That's all for now, here is a link to the full game recap:
