Re: Time for a Dr. J Statue?

Long overdue. Almost no one outside the UMASS community knows that Dr. J went there. I tell people in the DC area that he went there and they just don't believe me. I have to pull out the phone and show them. Having a statue in front of the Mullins Center would be a part of the UMASS basketball expe...

Re: john-calipari-left-umass-basketball-died

Look like Cal is getting caught between a rock and a hard place. I guess big time donors got to him.

Re: 2021 Recruiting

We just got a transfer running back from Rutgers. He announced his commitment tonight. He had 35 rushes this year for a 4.5 average. He also caught 4 passes, including one that went for 62 yards.

Great idea! I wonder how many other schools have so many players return as grad students. Does anyone have an idea?

Re: Is MM a winner?

Smart already proved himself to be a consistent winner at VCU which is very different than MM. Nonetheless I still hope MM can get us there. Smart is great- wish he was at UMASS. However, some coaches cannot make the jump to the next level after having success elsewhere. I always thought Smart woul...

Re: Way too early but........

The roster has 14 players (many of them are core contributors) who are grad students or seniors. Plus the X and goalie look strong even though they were freshmen last year. With that much experience and talent on the roster, this could be quite a memorable season! Go Gorillas!

Re: 2020-21 season

I just watched. See what happens when you don't wear the black unis? :) I much prefer the black uniforms (regardless of the school's record wearing them) that the gray ones. The gray ones look like the stuff you wear in practice so that if it gets wrecked, nobody cares. Gray says we don't care what...

Re: 2020-2021 Season

Glad they are doing well this year. Despite losing Mitchell Chaffee and John Leonard they are scoring more this season and have a better power play. How can that be? Did everyone get better? My thoughts exactly. You would have reasonably expected a drop off given how important Chafee and Leonard we...

Re: Is MM a winner?

Just another thing to think about unrelated to the merits of firing MM and Walt Bell is the reality of the financial situation at UMASS. If Bamford goes to Swamy and says we need to fire these guys and eat the remaining portion of their contracts, my guess is that the next person looking for a job w...
