At 2-4, UConn facing another rough opponent

Here's what went down at the UConn media luncheon this afternoon.

  • Blidi Wreh Wilson (knee) is out again this week for South Florida. Byron Jones will start at cornerback. Ty-Meer Brown is getting the start at safety ahead of Harris Agbor.

  • UConn's passing defense has had big problems the past couple of weeks. B.J. Daniels, the USF quarterback, brings another dimension with his ability to run.

  • UConn receivers Tebucky Jones and Geremy Davis showed potential during spring and preseason camp, but have just eight catches between them. They "are still learning what it takes to be a wide receiver at this level".

  • Pasqualoni is hoping the Big East acts quickly in regard to expansion. "I think the teams they're talking about can add to the conference," he said. "I'd like the movement to get done, that we get this settled quickly.

  • Ty-Meer Brown was recruited to play Division I basketball and football coming out of high school in McKeesport, Pa. Pittsburgh said it would allow him to play both. Robert Morris, Duquesne, Akron and Buffalo also liked him as a basketball player. An option quarterback in high school, Toledo piqued his interest when it recruited him as a quarterback. But he realized he'd be better off on defense in college.
