Heading to the game tonight and as usual looks to be another UConn senior citizen takeover.  Probably 8,000 in the building with 6,000 of those being UConn fans.  Every year I end up next to a group of 65 to 75 year old women who are just annoying wanting to talk about how great the Huskies are and how sad our season has unfolded.  I do have to admit that in the past, they did applaud our outgoing seniors during the pre-game ceremony.  Please, please, please keep this one within 25-30 points.  One can dream.

GO BULLS!

Ladies just need to play like they have nothing to lose. We have already secured the 5 seed in the tourney whether we win or lose tonight.

If UCONN fans are as knowledgeable as they say (think) they are, then they will know the unusual injury depletion situation that we have going on this year.  They should cut us some slack for the year that we have had, which has still been very good considering the circumstances. 

But fans will be fans, and I guess its kind of rude to yell back at Senior Citizens.

Best one I heard was a 5'2" UCONN elderly man talking about how short our coach is, well, when he wasn't whining about every play, anyway his wife told him to sit down and stop sounding stupid.🤘

I was at last year's blowout and some UConn senior citizen sitting two rows behind me started yelling about what he thought was a bad call when they were up 40-something. I don't normally say anything to fans around me, but I actually stood up, turned around and told the guy to shut the F up. He didn't make a peep the rest of the night.

There was a great article in the TBT about the following WBB has among senior citizens. It’s actually a national thing.

Geno can’t run an offense with the best players in the sport?

Our defense has been amazing so far. Can we keep it up for 20 more minutes playing 7?

Why not.? I am a senior citizen and their fans are obnoxious. We yelled at them
