But where will the scholarship come from? There is no question that UConn is now one of the top 5 or 6 teams in college basketball. Drummond brings length and versatility to a Huskies team that already has plenty of it. Will there be some growing pains?? Absolutely.

What would have caused the change of heart in Drummond? He appeared headed back to prep school for this season. Now, he’s headed to Storrs. There is little doubt at this point among those that cover the game that Jim Calhoun will be back on the sidelines this year. And why not?? He has some great young talent coming back and just about all of them should be buying what he’s selling after a National Championship.

With all that having been said, UConn fans should be cautious to think this is an automatic National Championship for the Huskies. North Carolina, Ohio State and Kentucky are poised for big seasons. With that being said, I have never been a big believer in the Big 10 outside of Michigan State and Tom Izzo and John Calipari continues to show me that all he knows how to do is recruit. I have never held him in high regard as a big-game coach.

So I guess the question on August 27th is…….. Why not UConn?
