Two minutes to kickoff

Just before 8, and it's not only raining cats and dogs, the wind gusts are pretty severe here at the Runway. My prediction of a high scoring game may be way off. Crowd should be sparse, too. Sometimes ESPN can hurt. It's too easy to stay home on a night like this.

Couple of other notes:

No word on who the mystery injury was, but we've been assured whoever he is, he is playing today. Couldn't get much more other than the mystery player has a pretty good backup. Sometimes I hate my job.

Also, there are representatives from the Fiesta Bowl and the Meineke Car Car Bowl here scouting both teams. Small crowd tonight at the Runway might come back to hurt UConn...not something bowl reps want to see, even in bad weather.

I thought the crowd filled in nicely in the first quarter. The student section remained for the game and so did most of the fans. Great atmosphere overall last night.

Is it possible that the injury was to FB Anthony Davis? He usually gets all the time at full-back. Tonight it looked like all Anthony Sherman with no sign of Davis.

The crowd was FANTASTIC, especially in the fourth quarter. It got loud. Credit to everyone who braved the rain and stuck it out til the end.
