October 29, 2022

EAST HARTFORD – The revolution is real. All season long, the UConn football program and its social media team has referenced and pushed the narrative that “the Revolution” was coming when it comes to success on the field after so many down years.

Sure, some players can leave campus and go visit family for a few days if it’s doable with their class schedule or based on location, but the life of an NCAA football coach means your bye week is actually spent…
