Re: 2019-20 season

I'm definitely optimistic about the future of this program, just starting to get a little cautious with my expectations for the remainder of the year based on the shrinking bench. Fingers crossed, I hope Weeks is ok, Kolton recovers fully, and Dibaji gets his waiver.

Re: Should McCall be given a third year

Listen to the podcast linked above by 69MG. Jay is a great host and this, for me, has been McCall's most enjoyable interview I've heard from him in 2 1/2 years. In the midst of a 6-game losing streak, he doesn't sound anything like the McCall from last year. There is so much more optimisim, exciteme...

Re: 2019-20 season

Mike mentioned in the TJ Weeks thread that this season is starting to feel like it's unraveling. I'm interested to hear people's takes on the remainder of the season. I tend to agree with Mike that it's starting to feel lost. The 6 game losing streak amplifies that, but it's also the player availabi...

Refs forgot to bring their whistles tonight apparently. Not a bad thing.
Love it. Refs should be there just to keep the peace and discourage fist fights. Bury those whistles and let 'em play!

East with another buzzer beater to end a half. That's some momentum right there.

Re: Game 11, 2019-20: Yale (12/11)

Yale is 5 KenPom spots higher than Harvard. I expected being at home to give us a little boost, but losing TJ is a hit. Fingers crossed for this one.

Re: KAEO Kolton Mitchell

He got hurt on 11/5, which was 5 weeks ago. I believe the expected recovery time was 6 weeks, but these things tend to go longer than expected. Hopefully his hand or wrist (not sure what he hurt exactly) is recovering well and he starts to get some reps in practice soon. Does anyone know if his inju...

Re: KAEO: Dibaji Walker

Does anybody have access to his instagram post so we can see what he said about the Dec. 18th decision and how it was said? Also, I'm in the camp that says play him as soon as he's eligible. The team needs some help, the grad transfer rule means you possibly only get one year from him if he graduate...

I don't know how reliable this is because Dibaji's instagram account is private, but someone on twitter mentioned that we will know by the 18th: https://twitter.com/BostonSportsNe2/status/1204364783019085825 BREAKING: Dibaji Walker is gonna find out if he’s eligible or not by December 18th according...

Re: Game 10, 2019-20: at Harvard (12/7)

Bergeron's press worked in h.s. This ain't h.s edit: McCall blamed the players in his post-game interview. He should have said, "It's my job to get them ready and they weren't ready." I thought the same thing when I heard the postgame interview, but he sent this message out on Twitter: https://twit...

Ah yes, the old transitive property. So, according to your logic, since we beat CCSU, and CCSU beat ... oh wait, nevermind, we're good.

Re: Game 10, 2019-20: at Harvard (12/7)

Sure, but why are they better. Why weren't you able to compete, or impose your style of play? Getting housed by Harvard in front of a good UMass crowd, losing a 9 or 10 point 2nd half lead over St Johns and eventually getting blown out, the press getting sliced and diced by everybody; these are ques...

Re: Game 10, 2019-20: at Harvard (12/7)

Just flush this one, refocus, and on to the next. That's how I felt after the Rutgers game, but I think we're starting to see some patterns develop. They need to look at the last few and really start to learn from it, dissect some things, and get them corrected. The team is developing an identity a...

Re: Game 10, 2019-20: at Harvard (12/7)

That was massively disappointing. Not a home game, but certainly a pro-UMass crowd and they were a complete no-show from coaching on down. A lot to look at and correct in these final 3 before A10 play. My wish list: 1. Defensive Scheme: use the press selectively. Sometimes you have to pack it in and...

Re: Game 10, 2019-20: at Harvard (12/7)

I agree with your overall point, but this is his 5th game, and he practiced all off season, played in the Virgin Islands trip, and in the exhibition, so there's something else going on with his play. He should be game ready, but he just doesn't look good. Ha, what a dumbass. Now Sy's starting to co...
