Re: 2020 A10 Offseason News

Heck yeah. Kolton gave Dayton hell all day on the defensive end that game. He is a super intense defender, and his teammates feed off of it.

Re: 2020-21 Season

^ Word up. Why are all these positives coming a week before the season is supposed to start? Haven't these teams been together with protocols and testing in place for a while now? My excitement level last week was through the roof, today however, it's in the basement. I think Mike's prediction of a ...

Per Jon Rothstein: "Source: UMass forward Preston Santos is taking a leave of absence for personal reasons." https://twitter.com/JonRothstein/status/1328474599135334400 I don't want to jump the gun and certainly hope for the best with Preston, but we had a similar situation right before th...

Re: KAEO: Carl Pierre

Gazette article on Carl Pierre as he enters his senior season: https://www.gazettenet.com/UMass-senior-Carl-Pierre-becomes-leader-of-young-talented-Minutemen-37304078 Absolutely one of my favorite UMass players ever. Stats be damned, he brings what I want from my student athletes. He works hard on a...

Re: Season Tickets for the 2020-21 season

Can he come back though? McCall indicated that Pierre is on track to get his masters degree this year. https://twitter.com/A10MBB/status/1326675042600710146 I know absolutely diddly squat about eligibility rules, but it seems unlikely that someone can play if they're not enrolled or have finished a ...

Re: Season Tickets for the 2020-21 season

100% Hyped for the season to get started. I'm disappointed that I won't be able to see the team in person, but the situation dictates that, not UMass or Bamford. Does anyone know what the virtual season ticket is? The major disappointment for me will be not getting to go and applaud Carl Pierre on S...

Nice! I don't have a whole lot of love for Howard Bryant, but that's a good story and press for their fight.

Re: Infractions 2014-2017

I don't know if the petition will change anything, but they certainly have gotten the word out. The Boston Globe had a story on it, CT senator Chris Murphy is talking about it, Dan Shaughnessy actually defended UMass, and I saw Pete Abraham tweet about it. I'm sure there are others talking about it,...

Re: 2020-21 Season

That Mohegan bubble is going to be outstanding. Obviously no fans this year, but they should consider doing this every year or every couple of years because it would be an outrageously good event to attend. It would be like a preseason March Madness with all those teams in one place.

Re: 2020-2021 Predictions

I agree with that. I think Santos is a fantastic 6th man. He's a dirt dog and brings energy. A starting 5 is more than just putting out the 5 most talented players, it's about putting the right mix of guys out there at the same time. On days when the starters are clicking, he can lead a good second ...

Re: 2020-2021 Predictions

yeah, I don't really know the difference. I guess talent means you have ability but might be stricken with the dreaded P word (Potential). Best means you've translated your talent to the game and made an impact.
