UConn is screwed

February 4th can't come soon enough. UC has already put UConn in a coffin. That will be my #MLOTCOTD, UC over UConn. UConn is having a down year this year, and this is Cronin's strongest team since the Sweet 16 team in 2012. Cincinnati is rolling right now and they will playing in these amazing throwback jerseys. The throwbacks are being worn as part of the day itself. UC is honoring Huggins' Final Four team from 1992. Cincinnati lost to Michigan and the Fab Five 76-72 that year.

I'm pumped. Those are a work of art. Under Armour nailed this one. UC fans have been dying for a set of throwback uniforms, especially ones from the golden age of UC hoops. The last time UC wore them was when Adidas gave them to honor the Oscar Robertson teams. Under Armour even brought back that old logo and is selling shirts.

I will give the uniforms a 9.5 out of 10, the only flaw and it is so small is the number. If you are a fan, you can recall that the numbers on the jersey were off centered when they wore these. That old C paw just has a special place in my heart. I remember watching UC when they were in the Jordan Era jersey and just something about that logo gives me a flashback to the good old days. I hope UC will get to wear them more than once this year, don't think it will be the case, but one can hope.

UC is a mortal lock to win this game, I don't care what the spread will be. I don't care what UConn's record is (7-10). UConn could have a completely different season and be undefeated coming into this game I would still take the Cats by a million on February 4th. The rival won't be as close this year as it has been in the past, UC will roll past UConn.
