Re: 2019-20 season

Unless MM figures it out really soon he will be lucky to be leaving for an assistant job at Rollins College.

Re: Game 17, 2019-20: at St Bonaventure (Rochester, 1/15)

I would love to have Djery as a son but I’d cut him from my team.

Re: WHT: Mike Williams

Wish he had a chance to play in the NCAA games his senior year. Would have helped tremendously!

Re: Game 17, 2019-20: at St Bonaventure (Rochester, 1/15)

And here is another thing. Without Bergeron we might not have Tre and T.J. But what really concerns me in addition to the style of play (soft, crappy D, liability press and no rebounding desire or commitment) is that McCall has been implying then outwardly griping that the attitude of the previous p...

Re: Game 17, 2019-20: at St Bonaventure (Rochester, 1/15)

Nothing matters unless UMass learns to: 1. Play half court defense and lose the “press” 2. Rebound. 3. Friggin rebound. Hard to watch. I have lost all faith in McCall. I don’t care how we are young or Weeks is hurt as excuses. I have coached hoop for 20 years and McCall doesn’t know how to get his g...

Re: KAEO: Sy Chatman

I know Sy has some athletic ability but I think his lose is a big deal in the future. He is not strong enough to play inside and has trouble using what strength he does have to play physical. I know we can do much better with a tougher, more physical guy in the future.

Re: Game 10, 2019-20: at Harvard (12/7)

Coaches need to teach these kids some defense and make them understand that if they don’t play very physical they are going to get stomped.

Re: Game 9, 2019-20: South Carolina (12/4)

First of all there have been D1 teams that pressed after each score but those have been far and few between. The teams that were successful had some combination of outstanding athletes( long and fast and able to anticipate and read) and/or their style of trapping was extremely physical and aggressiv...

Re: Game 9, 2019-20: South Carolina (12/4)

WORST PRESS EVER!!! What the hell are the coaches thinking. I’m totally through with McCall!!! Terrible terrible coaching. I’m giving up until they play defense.

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

Here’s hoping Bell hires an offensive coordinator this winter. Can’t be any worse under someone else than it is under Bell.

Re: Game 11: @ Northwestern - 11/16/2019

I was at the game today. Saw a few UMass parents but no other UMass sightings. Overall give the players all the credit in the world. They played hard and had a great sideline all day. Red zone killed them. Play calling was not quite as strange as normal but still head scratching times. For example, ...

IMHO Tre will be here four years. He needs time to develop his body and his game.

Re: Game 1, 2019-20: UMass-Lowell (11/5)

Few takeaways: McCall was so excited and happy in postgame. I’m really happy for him. He knows he has players and a situation that is very positive with potential. Free throw shooting needs to get fixed immediately. You don’t want to have a free throw issue because it kills so many opportunities. De...
