Re: 2019 Season

Any thoughts on what Athlon had to say (129 out of 130)? 129. UMass New coach Walt Bell is a good hire for a UMass program that has won only 16 games over the last five years. However, the Minutemen have a lot of work to do this offseason. Only six starters are back, and Bell has to restock an offen...

Re: 2021 Recruiting

^^ In a way, I'm glad to hear that. It may mean that at least 1 other person on staff has some recruiting connections, or it could just be MM on the recruiting trail.

Re: 2021 Recruiting

First, happy Fathers Day to all of the dads out there. Time to bring this thread closer to the top. Pure speculation on my part, but could this be the Tony Bergeron effect on recruiting? We have recently offered 3 players from Mass Rivals from the class of 2021. Casey Simmons Gianni Thompson Cameron...

Re: Looking Ahead to the 2019-2020 Season

Anyone have any idea whether they are finished announcing recruits for next season? I hope not, as the two defensemen they added only gives them six, and that number includes Vegara who hardly played last year. I would think they need to add two more blue liners. From a Gazette article today, mostl...

Re: 2019-20 season

Just saw on the URI website that Wheeler is their 2nd all time leading scorer, 1st in career assists (by more than 200) and 2nd in career steals (short by 2 steals). I remember him being good when we played them, but I didn't realize just how good he was. If he has any coaching/communication skills ...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Sounds like Woodstock is reloading pretty good under New coach Jacque Rivera. They’ve added wing Cairo McCrory, forward Dyondre Dominguez, a big dude outta NY named Chad Venning, and (I think) big Richie Springs. Not sure if Cross is staying there but either way that group and DeGray is pretty deep...

Re: 2019-20 season

Cormier is an interesting choice. He's 68 years old and has tons of experience as a head coach (Dartmouth, Fairfield), assistant at Villanova and for the Memphis Grizzlies. Also was a scout for 2 NBA teams. A potentially great mentor for MM. I also like Wheeler (more now than when he and Mobley made...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Cross + Johnson sounds good for next year. Adding a couple 4*s would make our program pretty fierce given who we have coming in this year. Is the thinking that Clergeot will graduate and then grad transfer? Right now we will only have one scholly to give out otherwise. I thought we had two next yea...

Re: 2019-20 season

Press release basically about Kolton, but does mention all the other players except 1. Any ideas as to why KTM was left out?
