Re: Refuse to Lose

^ That's a clever repurposing of RTL Side note: I got my Sh-sbury towns mixed up. It would make more sense of Shutesbury put that on their school signs, as that's where Cal used to live. But this is Shrewsbury, by Worcester. MA needs more creative town names. (I'm also looking at you, Florida MA.)

Erving-era uniforms

Re: George Floyd/Colin Kaepernick

No surprise that our old and white privileged fan base has nothing to say here. LETS GO UMASS!!! “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” Do you realize that probably 98% of this board is on your side? There are no sports happening right now an i,...

Daily Hampshire Gazette

The Gazette, and sister papers Greenfield Recorder and Athol Daily News, are laying off staff / reducing hours / cutting pay. One of the layoffs was Josh Walfish, who has been our UMass beat writer. https://twitter.com/JoshWalfish/status/1242569223634894848 The publisher's note: https://www.recorder...

Re: NOLA DUO GONE!!!!!

This ESPN early Top 25 preview says the same thing, about Jarreau possibly testing the waters. I'll admit that I didn't watch any of their games this year, but his numbers on paper don't seem to support he's going to have much of a shot at the big time. Didn't make any of the AAC all-conference tea...

Re: Pat Kelsey

Winthrop won their conference tourney this year and got an automatic big to the NCAA Tournament, which was then cancelled. I find a bit of schadenfreude in that.

Bringing this up today because this is the 3rd anniversary of Kelsey getting cold feet and no-show'ing at our press conference.

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

We should be hearing about the A-10 season winners today. Strong chance that Tre will win Rookie of the Year. Our last RotY was Rashaun Freeman was in 2003-04. Comparisons... Freeman won Rookie of the Week 7 times. He did it back-to-back to open and close the season, then 3 scattered throughout. Ray...

Game 32, 2019-20: VCU (3/12, A10 Rd 2)

VCU wrapped up on Friday night, losing at Davidson. They finished 18-13 / 8-10, but over the past month they lost 7 of 8. UM, on the other hand, went 5-3 over our last 8. Thursday at noon at Barclays. NBCSN has the TV and the streaming. https://www.nbcsports.com/tv-listings http://stream.nbcsports.c...

Nice win! I thought Fran Dunphy was excellent as a color commentator.
Knowledgeable, yes.
Exciting, no. He was putting me to sleep.

Re: Game 31, 2019-20: Rhode Island (3/7)

Rhody is getting smoked at home vs Dayton, down 25 with 7 minutes left. Rhody's bubble may have already burst, regardless, according to the First Four Out that's running on CBSSN right now.

Re: A-10 Regular season

69MG: I think you're right. R2L83: I think you got the VCU and UMass winning scenario a little off. We're locked into 8th or 9th. The deciding factors: VCU (8-9) at Davidson (9-8), Friday at 9PM on ESPN2 Rhody (12-5) at UMass (8-9), Saturday at 7PM on NESNplus/ESPN+ A. If Davidson beats VCU: Davidso...

Re: A-10 Regular season

Updated our surrounding teams in the standings, with all the relevant results... 7. Davidson 9-8. Host VCU on Friday, expected win, 10-8 finish. Even if they lose and we win both of ours, they own the tie-breaker vs us, we cannot overtake them. 8. UMass 8-9. We own the VCU tie-breaker. At Rhody on S...
