Big East lunchtime links: Huskies rev up

Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett
• UConn's first day of spring practice was fast and furious as the Huskies installed their new no-huddle offense, Chip Malafronte writes in the New Haven Register. Randy Edsall said the team squeezed out 39 plays during a 15-minute period, where the previous total used to be about 27 snaps.

• Who will replace Donald Brown? Five different backs are angling for the chance, Desmond Conner says in the Hartford Courant.

• Dave Wannstedt has some holes to fill when Pittsburgh begins practice on Thursday, and none will be bigger than the voids left by LeSean McCoy and Scott McKillop, Kevin Gorman writes in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

• McCoy said he did just "OK" at Pitt's pro day, where he ran the 40 for scouts for the first time, Paul Zeise reports in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
