HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut coach Paul Pasqualoni isn't planning any immediate changes in the wake of the Huskies' 33-18 season-opening loss at home to Towson, a school from the Football Championship Subdivision.
Pasqualoni, speaking to reporters on a conference call Friday, said he heard the boos and understands that fans are upset after the program's first loss to an FCS team since 2001, when the Huskies were just beginning the process of upgrading to a Division I program.
"I think it was very disappointing for the fans. I am totally aware of that and I totally get that. (There was) disappointment for the players and the staff," Pasqualoni said. "We understand that.
"We're making every effort here to put on a team and a product here that the fans can be proud of."
Pasqualoni said quarterback Chandler Whitmer showed some first-game jitters for the second straight season on Thursday night, but he has no immediate plans to replace him. Whitmer threw for 206 yards and two scores, but also tossed an interception, was sacked five times and spent a lot of time running around in the backfield.
