    Should UConn dismiss football coach Paul Pasqualoni?

    • Yes. The team is going nowhere, the numbers are terrible and it's time for a fresh start.
    • No. He's a good coach and a good man.
    • Yes. We need someone who can inject some excitement into the offense.
    • No. A coach at UConn's level should get five years to prove himself.

After losing its first two games, the University of Connecticut football team faces the powerful Michigan Wolverines this weekend at Rentschler Field in East Hartford. While Husky Nation hopes for an upset, there are loud grumblings that coach Paul Pasqualoni should be fired.  Now in his third year, Pasqualoni’s teams went 5-7 in each of his first two years, and the first loss this year was to Towson State. The team’s offensive numbers are hugely unimpressive. But the team gave Maryland a good battle last week, and may be turning the corner. Should Paqualoni stay at the helm? What’s your view?
