Messages from Coach Mora, Coach Auriemma and Coach Hurley:

Dear UConn Nation,

The past two seasons Bleeding Blue for Good has been incredible and incredible source of support for our Football Program. Our staff and players are truly aware and appreciative of the passion of Husky Nation. We are all proud to be a part of this community and proud to be Huskies! As we approach the start of the 2024 football season, I want to not only share our program's appreciation for what you do for us, but also share how we can continue to ensure that we are moving in a positive direction as we build our program. We pride ourselves on recruiting high character student-athletes who excel both on and off the field. Those of you that have had a chance to get to know our players, particularly over the past two seasons through our relationship with Bleeding Blue for Good, know what a special group we have.

NIL (Name, Image and Likeness) is a critical part of the success of our program. We are incredibly grateful to all of you that have decided to join Bleeding Blue for Good and support our NIL efforts. We are amazed by the growth and success of Bleeding Blue for Good in just two seasons. The truth is, we have more work to do to grow the support for Bleeding Blue for Good. It has been an incredible addition to our life skills program, developing responsible, community-minded individuals through their partnerships with organizations like the Connecticut Children's
Hospital, the Boys & Girls Clubs, the Tommy Fund and Red Cross.

I am asking all Husky supporters to make the decision to join Bleeding Blue for Good and to be a part of our efforts to ensure this program continues its path toward success both on and off the field. Becoming a part of Bleeding Blue for Good provides opportunities to make a positive difference in our athletes' personal lives now and into the future. We thank you again for your support and to all of you for stepping up to stand with us in this new and highly competitive environment.

Sincerely,

Jim Mora
Head Football Coach

 

 

 

 

Dear UConn Nation,

It is an amazing time to Bleed Blue! Our staff and players are aware and appreciative of the passion of UConn Nation. I can confidently say we have the best fans in the country! We appreciate everything you do for us. We are all proud to be a part of this community and proud to be Huskies!! We are equally proud of the student athletes we recruit and coach. They are young women who excel both on and off the court- representing the best Conn Nation has to offer. Those of you that have had a chance to get to know our players, know what a special
group we have.

With the season behind us, I would like to take a moment to educate you on how we can ensure UConn Women's Basketball maintains our position as champions both on and off the court.

NIL (Name, Image and Likeness) has very quickly become a critical part our success. We are incredibly grateful to those of you that have chosen to support Bleeding Blue for Good (BBfG) in their mission to provide NIL opportunities for our program. Although we are proud by the
growth and success of BBfG, the truth is, we have more work to do.

In working with BBfG our team has been able to expand their impact in the community. Our players have hosted youth basketball clinics, worked at American Red Cross Blood Drives, and distributed food to our neighbors in need. They've built relationships in communities all over the state, truly showing what it means to be a Husky. With your support we can build upon the important work we have started.

I am asking all Husky supporters to make the decision to join BBfG. We would like all of you to be a part of OUR efforts to ensure the program continues to compete as a perennial contender for national championships!

Your support of BBfG provides opportunities to make a positive difference in the lives of our student athletes as well as our community now and into the future. We thank you again for your support. We look forward to working together as we navigate this new and highly
competitive environment.

Go Huskies!!

Dear UConn Nation,

The previous two years have been an amazing experience for our program and for you, our devoted fanbase. Winning back-to-back National Championships has been historic and has elevated UConn Basketball back to its' rightful place amongst the elite of college basketball. It has been an honor to lead such an incredible group of young men to the pinnacle of our sport, and we have felt your support every step of the way.

Since the last bit of confetti landed on us on the court in Phoenix in April, we have been hard at work preparing to maintain a standard of excellence for this storied program. As we have analyzed the many components that have gone into our success, the role that our Bleeding Blue For Good Collective has played cannot be ignored. Behind the tireless work of a passionate, dedicated group of leaders, BBfG has established itself as one of the best collectives in our sport.

NIL (Name, Image, and Likeness) is a critical part of the success of our program. We are incredibly grateful to all of you who have partnered with BBfG to support our NIL efforts. BBfG has done a terrific job of allowing our student-athletes to realize NIL opportunities while also giving back to various communities throughout our state. Through the hard work of BBfG, our young men have been able to participate in free youth basketball clinics, hospital visits, blood drives, and Special Olympic events as they use their position in this state to truly make a
difference.

Now that we are in the final stages of establishing our roster and beginning preparations for our intense summer workouts in advance of the 2024-25 season, we could not be more excited to continue to grow with BBfG.

Husky fans, I ask you all to please join BBfG and be a part of OUR efforts to ensure this historic program remains at the top of the college basketball mountain. Becoming a part of BBfG gives you the opportunity to make a positive difference in our communities and in the
personal lives of our players now and in the future.

UConn Nation...we heard you in Gampel, at XL, in every corner of Madison Square Garden, and loudly in Brooklyn, Boston, and Phoenix. Now let's hear you again as you join forces with BBfG to help your beloved Huskies!

Sincerely,

Dan Hurley
Head Men's Basketball Coach
