But in their first game after that column was written, Kelley's team lost to the Campbell Fighting Camels 72-0. That's how bad UConn is: Even being loosely linked to the Huskies in a student newspaper is a curse. All Bottom 10 eyes are firmly pointed toward Oct. 9, when Connecticut takes a wagon ride to...
