Light reading, Coppin State

Forget for a moment that Coppin State is 2-9 and lost to Alabama by 50 on Saturday.

OK, moving on.

UConn's Big East schedule begins Saturday at West Virginia so from this point on, there will be more UConn and conference doings than random samplings from around the country.

Those will still be included, but there will be plenty to add even though the Huskies have completed one-third of their schedule.

See you at the Civic Center.

Here are some stories to hold you over, and maybe through tonight's game.

MEADOWLANDS MISTAKES
When Bobby Gonzalez first took over at Seton Hall, a friend told him the biggest obstacle is the fact that his team plays at the cavernous Meadowlands or Continental Arena or whatever. Here is how the first-year coach is coping.

A NEW LEAF?
Eddie Sutton is one of the all-time winningest coaches at the Division I level and sits at 798 career victories.
A drunk driving arrest pretty much ended his career at 70, but he still has something to look forward to with both of his sons still coaching.
Has he changed? Let's hope so.

THE GOOD DOCTOR
Former Iowa coach Dr. Tom Davis is still doing it at the mid-major level.
Here's an update.

SHAKING LABELS
Here's another mid-major story.
They're almost, almost, almost ...
Trendy?

LOOKING AHEAD
Even though UConn had a huge sampling of low- and mid-majors, its non-conference schedule resumes in another 10 days at LSU and includes Indiana and Georgia Tech.
Here's a look at how Thaddeus Young is doing at Tech.
It will be interesing by the time UConn gets down there in February.

LOOKS FAMILIAR
Previews are always bulky but a necessity.
But looking at the Pac-10 rundown from the L.A. Times, it appears as though the conference has a similar look to the Big East at this point in the season, with the exception, of course, being top-ranked UCLA.
Some interesting notes in here.

ZONE OR MAN?
You decide.

FABRIZIO
Finally, in case you missed the story in Tuesday's Register about how a North Haven coach balanced a season, a team and his own family after the birth of his son Fabrizio Fiondella, here's another look. Fabrizio was born three months premature in July and is still fighting at Yale-New Haven Hospital.
A chance to help.
