Re: Game 12, 2020-21: at Richmond (2/23)

I hope people are mentally preparing themselves for UMass to lose, and possibly lose in embarrassing fashion. My pessimism is not due to a negative opinion of UMass in general, but rather due entirely to this particular matchup, and more importantly the timing of it.

Re: Game 12, 2020-21: at Richmond (2/23)

How can we possibly win? They would probably beat us under any conditions, but after a two week layoff and a little practice? Btw, any news on Tre and Noah? While anything is possible, the line of UMass +8.5 seems like whoever set the line didn't bother to look at any of the circumstances around th...

Re: Boston College

I am not defending BC but where do you want them to play umass? you get 28 or 29 games depending if you play an in-season tourney: they have 20 ACC games Big Ten ACC 1 Game so that leaves 7 games and why would BC want to play one of those games against a team that could beat me? Hell on the UMass s...

Re: All sports paused for 14 days!

My suspicion is that UMass isn't actually going to penalize anyone for breaking the rule about leaving one's residence - because if they did, that's when you'd probably bring the lawsuit against them.

Re: All sports paused for 14 days!

As I understand it, under these rules, UMass students can leave their residence and go to a restaurant with indoor dining... but they're not allowed to leave their residence just to take a walk or go for a jog.

This is the most asinine set of rules, whomever is deciding this is incompetent.

Re: All sports paused for 14 days!

They won't let sports teams practice, or have games with zero fans in attendance... I'm all for health & safety, but this accomplishes nothing, and only penalizes the student athletes, for zero fucking gain. So, so dumb.

Re: 2020-21 Season

Can someone, MG or RSox, clarify the new extra year of eligibility rule for me? Is it just for seniors who want to come back for a 5th year? Or is it anyone that is on scholarship during this pandemic won’t have this year count against them in the end? For example, could Walker play 2 more years af...

Re: Is MM a winner?

^ There might be a player component here as well. Maybe with a full bench, players are more likely to be a bit complacent? Lowered expectations could also be a factor in our subjective analysis. Beating URI w/ an injured Fatts isn't some enormous win for a top 6 A10 team. That win was huge because w...

Re: Game 10, 2020-21: Fordham (2/3)

^ You could try face-guarding him, but it doesn't work 100% of the time. I disagree with your proposed strategy of doubling Navarro, his priority was always to create openings for other guys, by doubling him you're giving him what he wants. UMass' defense was fine last night. On offense the players ...

Re: 2020-21 Atlantic 10 season

New 2021 ESPN Mock Draft is out and 1 player from the A-10 is listed - Bones Hyland from VCU. I think, long term, Ward is a better prospect. VCU is a good spot for him, and I hope he stays there and keeps developing the way he has, but there isn’t a coach in the country that wouldn’t want him and h...

Re: 2020-21 Season

^ Is the athletic department still running a skeleton crew? I believe that was the last I heard they were doing due to COVID induced temporary cutbacks in the department.
