You have to love Geno Auriemma, head coach of the UConn women’s basketball team. After beating Marquette in a close game, he has these remarks on the fans.
It was a loss for Marquette, but a record home crowd of 4,000 was another sign that the Golden Eagles’ program is progressing.
“The crowd really lifted us and carried us,” Mitchell said.
Auriemma complemented the rowdy Marquette fans — sort of, anyway. The coach deadpanned that he couldn’t believe some of the things fans were yelling near the Connecticut bench.
“I’m losing faith in the Catholic education,” Auriemma said. “I know it’s Milwaukee, and people drink a lot.”
But, Auriemma, added, the crowd could “never be worse” than the fans at Rutgers.
“Rutgers fans, they’re just born miserable and they stay miserable all their life,” Auriemma said.
Don’t worry Geno. We don’t obsess over you like you clearly do about us.
