While there were many great performances on opening night of the college football season, there were a few duds mixed in as well – the biggest of which was UConn’s showing against FCS program Towson. The Huskies lost 33-18 in their first game as an AAC conference member.
As you can imagine, Twitter has not been kind to the Huskies or their coach, Paul Pasqualoni. Here’s the best of what we’ve found out there.
Why isn’t Obama intervening in Towson/UConn

I can’t even tell you what conference Towson plays in without looking it up. #UConn #AAC

I’m going to sell all of my student tickets to UConn football games. Except for Michigan. I want to see that slaughter in person.

Officially kick starting the campaign to have Kevin Ollie be the new UConn head football coach.

A Dime Back will get a football writer once #UConn gets a football coach.

UConn losing to Towson on opening night? I see the new Big East is picking up where the old Big East left off……

I wonder how much $$ #uconn paid #towson to beat them. #TOWvsUconn #uproar

Is it really an FCS-FBS upset when that FBS team is UConn?

With chance to tie the game late at UConn, Towson fumbles the punt. Classic mistake by a I-AA team. Wait. I have the teams switched.

Not even the UAA wants UConn at this point.

Dear UConn, you are why we can’t have nice things. #Towson #Really? #AAC41yr

There’s always basketball season, UConn fans.
