2005 University of Connecticut Football Media Guide


    NOTE: Due to NCAA regulations implemented in April of 2005, all media guides are now limited to 208 pages in length. For this reason, the 2005 UConn football media guide is 64 pages shorter than its 2004 edition while UConn's 2005-06  basketball guides will be condensed by 80 pages from their 2004-05 counterparts when they are released in October. In addition to cost-cutting, these measures were also installed by the NCAA to help level the playing field between larger and smaller schools and conferences for these recruiting materials. Last year, most football media guides at BCS schools were between 350-400 pages in length with Missouri leading the pack at 614 pages.
