Re: 2020-2021 Predictions

A #72 preseason prediction is nice to see and I'd be pleased finishing somewhere around there. The writer didn't go overboard and expect a Sweet 16 run or anything like that, he only has us in the NIT, which I think should be the expectation this year. Tre will be great, Carl will be very good, and ...

Re: 2020-21 Season

Nathan Strauss is a current UMass student and covers the team via WMUA. He had this on twitter today: Coach McCall says that @UMassBasketball is hoping to hear "this week or next" from the NCAA about Noah Fernandes' waiver, adds that everything has been done on the UMass side of things. https://twit...

Re: 2020-21 Season

No S#%@. Why is UMass always the last to hear news about our waivers? I thought there was a rumor going around that Fernandes had already received his but it wasn't announced. I don't know why they wouldn't announce it, so I'm skeptical.

Re: 2020-21 Season

Got it. Thought it was gonna be another article about team rankings. So, four guys out of fifty. That would be about average in a conference of 14 teams (4 X 14 = 56). Consistent with the middle of standings, e.g., 7 or 8. To clarify, I believe this article is top 50 returning players. It doesn't e...

Re: 57 donors for basketball, show it!

Thanks 69. I was going to add them myself, but also was lazy about it and just asked. I wonder how the donations to the general fund that didn't show up on the individual tallies will be used.

Re: 57 donors for basketball, show it!

Does anybody know what the total was for the entire program, and what the original goal was? It's not shown on the flagshipforward.com site.

Basketball hit $56,739 via 105 donors.

Re: 57 donors for basketball, show it!

I donated to the general Maroon Excellence Fund. Most of the bigger sports hit their goals, but there are plenty of smaller sports that could use the money. To begin the final day, they've raised over $500,000. Very impressive.

Re: KAEO: Sean East

Ha, what a cry baby. My team is too talented, wah wah. A lot of coaches out there wish they had that problem. At least he admits he didn't do a very good job managing the personalities. I've always been more of the mindset that you recruit a team and not just talent, i.e. don't just recruit the most...

Re: Cam Newton to Pats

Someone refresh my memory. Is Cam Newton a bad guy? Has he been in trouble with the law or been accused of some pretty shady stuff? I honestly can't remember. My recollection of him is that he's a "me first" kind of guy, and loves the cameras and attention. I don't care about the signing one way or ...

Re: 2020-21 Season

I haven't been worried about fall sports returning. I've remained optimistic that even though Covid won't go away, basketball season is far enough on the horizon that we'll reduce the numbers and develop ways to combat it even if a vaccine isn't available. I'm starting to exercise a little more caut...
