Re: Game 2: 2/25 @ 1 PM @ #12 Ohio State

Nice win after dreadful outing against Army. Maybe there is hope for this team after all. Go Gorillas!!!

Re: Game 24, 2019-20: George Mason (2/9)

Not a comment on retiring jerseys but McCoy was so important for the turnaround in UMASS bball. He scored when we needed it early on which won many games. That helped in recruiting. He was the lynchpin in the early Cal years. His impact should never be underestimated. Not that UMASS should go on a r...

Re: 2019-20 Season

It is lots of fun to see the weekly rankings on USCHO/USA Today come out and see UMASS in the top ten :D . I remember doing the same for the basketball so very, very long ago :(

Re: Game 1: 2/8 @ 12 @ West Point

Ouch! I hope I am wrong but this may be a long season. Only 4 goals to 17. Unacceptable.

Re: Dan Shaughnessy

Shank represents everything I do not like about some sports writers. His tries to ruin the fun of sports by his negative pieces. Always looking for the bad side or criticizing just for the sake of criticizing. He is a thin skinned paper bully. This is representative of all his writing- not just on U...

Re: Game 1: 2/8 @ 12 @ West Point

The bubble should surely help. UMASS always seems to get off to a slow start. Hoping for a good result against a tough Army squad. GO Gorillas!

Re: 2020 polls

Let's not forget the face-off specialist. We lost a good one and that's a key position. Can't score if you don't have the ball. You are right- nothing worse than losing 4-5 FOs in a row. The other team controls the game when that happens. I remember a game against JHU (perhaps a playoff game) when ...

Re: Makar in NHL

As of today- #1 scoring leader among rookies....as a defenseman. Tied for #7 among all defensemen. Not a bad start to your NHL career.

Proud he played for the Minutemen!

Re: 2020 polls

Who replaces Scanone is critical. Losing a first-team AA is tough. Good luck to the Gorillas!

Just a random thought. UMASS has had some pretty good goalies- Scanone, LoCascio, Doc.

Luckily most top teams had a rough weekend.
Anyone else find it amazing that UMASS goes 0-1-1 to UNH and it stays at 7th in polls and pairwise? To me, that is mind-boggling and shows how far UMASS has come.

Re: Game 20, 2019-20: Duquesne (1/25)

Went to a couple of great games at the Springfield Civic Center- When UMASS beat Rutgers after their Final Four year and a heartbreaking loss to Providence (exciting game). Not as much fun as the Cage but it was a big arena experience. We rushed the court after the Rutgers games- fun for an undergrad!
