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...

Re: State of the Progam

I'm not as clued in on the football program as I am basketball so excuse the question, but is there a good chance a lot of our good recruits decommit with the way things are going? I've read a bit about how Bell has put together the best recruiting class in UMASS history for next year, but I feel l...

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

Thanks for posting. Okay. Buggs gettin a knee scope was the only injury mentioned, right? What about KTM? This matters. He isn't a big factor himself but it matters as to how many big guys we have and how they rotate. Goood vibes for Kolton on defense, but I don 't think he will be high on depth ch...

Re: 2019-20 season

Anyone know whats up wit KTM? Appears to be odd man out on the maroon/white team split Breakout year for Samba Shirtgate Sy looks like he may have shot up and inch or maybe 2....and he looks like he’s packed on some muscle...I know the picture is an overhead angle and they’re not standing exactly s...

Re: 2019 NFL Draft

If he were just 2" taller and 10 pounds heavier they would be comparing him to Christian McCaffrey and he would go in the first round. I think he is a steal for late second day. if he were 2” taller and 10 pounds heavier he likely would’ve played in the Big 10....would love to see New England grab ...

Surely you can't be serious! NCAA recruiting has been cleaned up a lot in recent years. In fact, I haven't read any articles in the last year that would even remotely suggest otherwise. Also, I'm an idiot.
And stop calling me Shirley.

Re: State of the program

Didn’t we get Forbes, Brower, Gaffney and Milligan as transfers all about the same year?

3 kids have signed for next season....as a quick refresher, who are they? Buggs, Thomas, ?
Santos
Does this mean 3 kids from this year’s squad must leave? What if one of these 3 has already agreed to a redshirt season?

And are we rumored to be actively pursuing a 4th HS signee?

Re: State of the program

Your honor, I simply haven’t seen enough to draw any conclusions....the fact that McCall has essentially buried him on the bench certainly gives us reasonable suspicion that he’s not a difference maker on an A10 contender. We really need the incoming freshmen class to have a gem...or two. Minus RH a...

Re: State of the program

^ I think the foundation has been laid in terms of expectations (effort, focus, attitude, etc)... but the question about having a good foundation in terms of players is certainly up for debate. I’d like the names of the successful or even moderately successful coaches that don’t demand effort, focu...

Re: State of the program

The larger concern is the immediate future, the next year or two. This season has gotten away from us....not that we can’t right the ship and finish strong but the postseason will not be happening. Do we have the foundation with our freshman and sophomores to build an A10 contender? Diallo , I like ...

Re: Game 10, 2018-2019 Providence 12/7/18

Still pumped up about this win the next morning! After reading some of the comments some additional thoughts: - I did think immediately upon turning on the game, darn it's nice to have a crowd and actual atmosphere! Was telling my daughter how we used to stand for every game at the Cage banging on ...
