Re: Game 7, 2020-21: Rhode Island (1/13)

Sorry. A quarter-century later, black uniforms still suck.

Re: UMass Basketball Family and Brotherhood

Tom, this is great to read. Only fitting that the call took place on Dec. 22, what would have been Jack's 88th birthday.

Re: It's not video -- but it's something

Nice work Mike. Looking forward to seeing and hearing the finished-product pages, and glad I could contribute with an added audio dimension. By the way I still owe you a pic of the 90-91 "Men At Work" team poster. Have not forgotten, I promise.

Re: It's not video -- but it's something

Seems like the bots have been busy over here lately, to jack up this thread to 2300+ views. I've been adding games to the Soundcloud page here and there, for a current count of 64. That includes two versions of the '95 game at West Virginia, one of them the famous "Comeback" edit. Also, th...

Re: Refuse to Lose

In going through my old tapes of broadcasts, I believe I may have found Cal's first documented use of RTL. He wrote it on the locker-room blackboard before the game at Rutgers on Jan. 12, 1993, and we talked it up in our pregame chat. That was a game where UMass led throughout until very late, fell ...

Re: It's not video -- but it's something

Update: Although there may be a few more additions from time to time, the work on the Soundcloud page is essentially done. There are now 39 games posted, including the last seven of the 94-95 season -- all three A-10 Tournament games followed by all four NCAA Tournament games. I finished with the ga...

Re: It's not video -- but it's something

Somewhat slower going lately, but I have still managed to put up the Charlie Ward/Florida State game from Feb. 1994, the sneaky good and important game vs. Maryland in Baltimore in Dec. 1994, and the "protest game" at Rutgers in Feb. 1995, suspended by a student demonstration at halftime a...

Much respect and thanks to you, sir. https://soundcloud.com/user-125347718/umass-west-virginia-01271995 Here are the last five-plus minutes of regulation and the overtime perio...

Re: It's not video -- but it's something

Up to the moment, 16 tracks in all are up. The latest are all three games vs. Temple in 93-94, including a pair of one-pointers decided late by Mike Williams, and the A-10 tournament final that featured an early 24-3 lead. One goal of the project is to put up all A-10 tournament and NCAA tournament ...

Combo effort. UMass is 6-4 all-time vs. Temple, 5-5 vs. Duquesne and 4-6 vs. GW.

Two of those are correct.
