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 — edsbs (@edsbs) August 30, 2013 I can’t even tell you what conference Towson plays in without looking it up. #UConn #AAC — Sean Gallagher (@SPGallagher2) August 30, 2013 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. — Weeping UConn Fan (@WeepingMetsFan) August 30, 2013 What’s left in the UConn student section. 26-10 Towson. pic.twitter.com/c1QEagqBDx — Kevin Duffy (@KevinRDuffy) August 30, 2013 Officially kick starting the campaign to have Kevin Ollie be the new UConn head football coach. — Nick Mastropietro (@nick_mastropie) August 30, 2013 A Dime Back will get a football writer once #UConn gets a football coach. — A Dime Back (@ADimeBack) August 30, 2013 UConn losing to Towson on opening night? I see the new Big East is picking up where the old Big East left off…… — Paul Zeise (@PaulZeise) August 30, 2013 I wonder how much $$ #uconn paid #towson to beat them. #TOWvsUconn #uproar — Joshua Aaron Levy (@Chefdaud) August 30, 2013 Is it really an FCS-FBS upset when that FBS team is UConn? — Tony (@_ToneBone_) August 30, 2013 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. — SportsPickle (@sportspickle) August 30, 2013 Not even the UAA wants UConn at this point. — Awful Announcing (@awfulannouncing) August 30, 2013 Hey guys, UConn soccer starts tomorrow. — Tim Fontenault (@Tim_Fontenault) August 30, 2013 #UConn I’m an alum and this football program is imploding. Get this right. Seriously we just lost to lacrosse school. Lacrosse! — sean donnelly (@seaniedons) August 30, 2013 Dear UConn, you are why we can’t have nice things. #Towson #Really? #AAC41yr — Howie Lindsey (@howielindsey) August 30, 2013 There’s always basketball season, UConn fans.
