Mike Foley

STORRS, Conn. --When UConn offensive line coach Mike Foley wants to show his young offensive line how he wants things done he takes a trip to the film room.

In the library, archives or whatever system the football program lies the answer to UConn's woes.

It wasn't that long ago that UConn used to dominate on the ground. An All-American season by Donald Brown was followed by having to 1,000 yard rushers in one season, followed by another All-American season by Jordan Todman.

When Mike Foley took over the offensive line last September he knew that the chances of a bowl game for UConn were slim.

UConn finished with a 3-9 record and for much of the fanbase, it was a lost season and a lost cause.

Foley, the long-time coach, knew better than that. One of the great benefits of playing in a bowl game is the additional practices. Bowl practice is like having a winter practice session, and it's during these bowl practices that coaches get a chance to see a lot of the young players and players redshirting that they were unable to evaluate during the season.
