Jim Calhoun was rather calm and reserved after UConn's bad, 67-60 loss to Rutgers Saturday night. The apparent burst blood vessel in his right eye wasn't a result of screaming from the bench during the game; he had the redness in his eye the previous day at practice, as well.
But Calhoun certainly wasn't pleased by his team's performance, and that comes through in some of his terse, snippy responses to reporters' questions.
