I too am from Connecticut, but a different part of the state than I assume you are from.
Connecticut is really like two completely different states In the part I am from (Fairfield Country), most people could care less about UCONN or its sports teams. We have two professional teams in each sport from New York - which is a lot closer to us than Hartford or Storrs (a place no one I know has ever visited). Our focus is toward New York City and that is where many of us make our living.
I am glad you are a happy follower of UCONN sports. I am not. In my - and many of my neighbor's opinions,- Our tax dollars (the greatest percentage of which come from our end of the state) are being spent to support what are essentially professional athletics at our state university. We would all be much happier if UCONN spent our many improving the academic quality of the school rather than continuing to pour money into sports. The reason most of the people in my end of the state don't care about UCONN is because most of us wouldn't send our kids there if we could afford to send them to a better college. UCONN's academic ranking is very low compared to so many others (it ranks 63rd among national universities).
So, go enjoy rooting for our state college team. I will go back to work now so I can pay more taxes to pay for the scholarships of the great UCONN athletes.
