So, UConn women going for 88th...

What is your thought?

I was a student when it ended for UCLA. In fact, it was on my birthday that year that the 88 became history. Bittersweet!

Did you know that Notre Dame figured prominently in this streak, more than once?

They were the team to whom we lost prior to the start of the streak and the team to whom we lost to end the streak. Do you know what other milestone they played a role in?

And, as a side note, I believe UCLA only lost a handful of games my entire tenure there ('71/72 - 74/75). Ah, those were the days. McDonalds burgers for games we scored over a hundred.

Anyway, UConn is looking like they will easily surpass the 88, maybe even go to 100 this season. Does it compare? How? Better or not as impressive? Should we really care?

For me, it is a different era. Kinda like trying to compare fighters like Ali vs Sugar Ray Robison.

No one can take away my UCLA streak or Ali. Two of a kind. Each the greatest.
