Re: KAEO: Sean East

I’m not sure how anyone could draw that conclusion...Sean has a lot of talent and IF his work ethic was up to the challenge I for one would not have been surprised if he beat out the newcomers for the starting PG spot. I’ve been reading, and occasionally posting on this board for well over a decade...

Re: UMass-NFL news

Did anyone notice the results from Rogers pro day down in Florida? 4.28 40....which would’ve been 2nd at the combine 40” vertical (only 34” higher than mine) Impressive numbers....I’m sure a lot of teams, probably all teams took note and will be taking a look..4.28 is just too fast to not take a peak.

I would assume this means that Noah is eligible immediately.

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Do you really believe the coaching staff thinks Kolton is the better player with the higher upside? Kolton is a glue guy, the kind of kid coaches love to have on their team. Sean went through a rough patch and coach shook up the lineup. He’s averaging nearly 28 minutes a game, that’s starter minutes...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I’m really surprised that some people here think PG is the weakest link on this year’s team....PG is the most important position so maybe that is the reason for your opinions but I firmly believe Sean East is a starting A10 PG. Is he inconsistent as a freshman? Hell yes. Has he shown the ability to ...

Re: Game 22, 2019-20: at Davidson (2/1)

Agree Floyd, height, country of origin and experience were irrelevant in my opinion....you can’t beat any one with that defensive effort and execution.

Re: KAEO LuWane Pipkins (PG-2015)

Pipkins lead all players in scoring today coming off the bench and Providence had a nice upset at #16 Butler. PC was 11-10 entering yesterday’s ballgame, squarely a mediocre major D1 ballclub. Cooley gets his team prepared to play ON THE ROAD at #16 Butler in a packed Hinkle Fieldhouse. PC plays to...

Re: State of the Progam

^ Carl - You missed the point. He's talking about state education systems, not football systems. Appy is part of the NC system the same way that UMass Medical is part of the MA system. I realize it’s a state school, I thought he was implying/inferring (never know which one to use) that the NC state...

Re: State of the Progam

Liberty has so much money and even though in Appalachia, it is still a southern school part of the NC system. Much different environment and context. Case of information transposition .....App Sate is part of the U North Carolina System and Liberty is a Private school in Virginia.. Sorry, i typed t...

Re: KAEO LuWane Pipkins (PG-2015)

Against Marquette, Pipkins started for Providence but played just 12 minutes scoring 1 point, 1 rebound and 4 fouls. They won in spite of him. To be fair he has scored 21, 5, 13, 14, 16 in the 5 games prior while shooting a very solid percentage....he was also on a 28 straight FT streak....so his p...

Re: State of the Progam

I think must of us have no choice but to hope he turns the program around. Right now the program is an embarrassment losing badly to non power house teams. We do have a decent recruiting class coming in, if Bell can retain it, so we should see some improvement next year. Lifelong fan and alum....lo...

Re: State of the Progam

I made a similar post about 2 pages back....I’ll reiterate that we need to give Bell more time...that said, I’m giving him an F- 4 games into his tenure. This team is unprepared in every way....a good coach makes the sum greater than the individual parts....no coach could make this team good but I f...
