UConn and Rutgers, Rutgers and UConn. However you want to look at this one-time rivalry, it simply isn't the same as it used to be. No longer can Rutgers' defense slow down the Huskies. No more can the Huskies get dragged down into the dredges of basketball.
And no longer does Rutgers have the star power it once did.
Folks, this is going to be ugly. I kinda miss the heated matchups, tension and all.
