Re: 2020-21 Season

^ Don’t rule out in those games that we might struggle tre playing the 4 with gasperini at the 5 Why is that? Tre is as comfortable from the 3 area as he is in the box. That makes Tre much harder to guard. If he is dragging the opposing 4 away from the basket to defend him, he will eat them alive. ...

Jai Smith (@jai_smith131) a 6' 10" forward from St. Thomas More (CT) has received an offer from UMass.
Just reclassed from 2022 to 2021.
Is it possible you have that backwards? Where are you seeing he moved from '22 to '21?

Re: Pat Kelsey

To clarify, not contract adjustments, more like contract extensions. I think most can figure it out Ok I get it. That would be scandalous implication and probably justified not to take the job if true. Kelsey can't have been stupid or naive enough to expect he was walking into a perfectly healthy s...

Re: Pat Kelsey

I really want to know the details-not looking for anything sordid-Just want to know. We were the laughing stock of the sports world that day. Literally being left at the altar. Who or what is being protected still at this point by not letting the cat out of the bag? What is statute of limitations o...

Re: 2020-21 Season

For purposes of discussion, I've rated new guys with the guys leaving as improving, declining or no overall change. Clearly I'm looking at guys who have played here vs. those who haven't so it's not a fair assessment, and they might not be accurate pairings. Just conjecture... and I'm bored. Baptis...

I guess I just understood this tweet incorrectly. https://twitter.com/jonrothstein/status ... 35203?s=21
I think the NCAA was not clear initially, they clarified after.

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I’m hearing that they will give immediate eligibility to transfers however, they won’t be able to play until January 2021, which I’m ok with. I suppose anything is possible, but nothing I've read suggested this. I don't think they're contemplating it going into effect in January... it would either ...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Also I see that Niles has joined the artist formerly know as MartyPeretz in the world of podcasting about UMass hoops. Here are links to the two podcasts I've done, for anyone interested. I won't be making a career change, the sound quality isn't great, I did both in one take without editing, and I...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I would pay good money to watch a video of Joleon or Eldonabe listening to Niles' podcast. Ok, I wouldn't pay anything, but I would like to watch that. I believe he has me on “mute.” But as he launches his Podcast career, let’s all remember what a sharp and disciplined thinker the dude is. You can ...

Imagine the hype on here if Umass was getting a freshmen transfer who put up the numbers of East.
We were hyped for Derrick Gordon, myself included. We overlooked some red flags that were there his freshman year at WKU, particularly his shooting percentages.

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Can we get some comps on the new guys? Not having seen any of them play, I'll hazard a guess on just one; Dominguez - Putney Gasperini - Dominguez - DeGray - McCrory - Garcia - Fernandez - Sticking to just UMass comparisons, here's what I can come up with. Keeping in mind I'm not suggesting they're...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Preston might not be the clear second best in A-10 play, but his stats were clearly the second best (see "conference advanced" stats here https://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/schools/massachusetts/2020.html. What am I even reading there? Is that saying that Baptiste was our 6th best player last sea...

Re: KAEO: Sean East

Isn't simply stating something is doing just that, not making some weird condescending remark about being "mighty".
