A Practice Game that Never Was

Ray Tellier will be honored in Storrs tomorrow

The spring game is set ofr tomorrow at Wien Stadium at 4pm. Sadly, I will not be able to attend because of Passover, but REST ASSURED, I have some trusty correspondents going to the game and they will provide detailed reports and pictures for "Roar Lions Roar." Remember this blog relies on the readers and fans as much as possible.

38 years ago UConn's spring game was canceled because of the Kent State shootings. One of the players who was supposed to get into that game was Columbia Head Coach Ray Tellier, who went on to become a star QB for the Huskies. Tellier will be honored at UConn's spring game tomorrow.

It's clear Tellier still has close ties to UConn, and surely that played a role in Columbia hiring Norries Wilson away from the Huskies two years ago.
