Re: UConn to Big East 2020

I know what you are saying, I just don’t really care about bowls all too much. Maybe that’s just me. In my limited knowledge, I think they are a bit of a scam. And the watered down version of the current landscape where every bowl is named after a sponsor doesn’t really help things. If other folks ...

Re: UConn to Big East 2020

I’m not a huge college football guy so my thoughts aren’t very well educated but I want to weigh in here. I want UMass football to succeed. I’m just not sure it can. I understand what having a successful football program can do for an institution or at least what they say it can. I just am not sure ...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Saw we offered that Cairo McCrory kid who is playing at Woodstock this year so add him to the list. Sounds like he can play a little bit.

Also some kid named Dylan Wusu out of New York was just offered. No idea who he is but add him to the list also apparently.

Saw this photo:

Wonder if the jerseys were for a scrimmage. If so it looks like it could have been:

Baptiste
Samba
Pierre
Clergeot
TJ
Kolton

vs.

Tre
Sy
CJ
Santos
Buggs
East

with KTM as Switzerland

Re: 2020 Recruiting

So hopefully we will only have 1-2 scholarships to give out next year. Here’s a quick list of guys we have been rumored to have interest in (there are others but I only went with more recent names: Guards: Daillion Johnson Kam Farris Keshawn Barthelemy Marty Silvera Forwards: Matt Cross Dyondre Domi...

Re: 2019-20 season

Saw in this story on Wheeler that we will be visiting Fairfield next year - not sure that’s been posted here and it was news to me.

Re: Around the A10 (2019-2020)

When the threes are falling, there is nothing better. When the threes ain’t falling, there is nothing worse. Teams have figured out the math though and I don’t think it’s a passing fad. I do miss some of the artistry of the mid-range game, but I get why it’s gone the way it has. I would love to see ...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Bergeron coached Rivera and it sounds like they have a good relationship:

Re: 2019-20 season

I don’t know much about Cormier outside of what I read on Wikipedia. He may be a good fit. He might not. That’s my hard-hitting analysis. Pretty lengthy career, not a great record as a head coach but don’t think those were great jobs he had. And I saw that his Fairfield team almost beat UNC in the 1...

Re: 2019-20 season

Interesting hire with Wheeler. He was a helluva player at URI and was at Fairfield for a long time. Hope he helps the young point guards learn the ropes.

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Sounds like Woodstock is reloading pretty good under New coach Jacque Rivera. They’ve added wing Cairo McCrory, forward Dyondre Dominguez, a big dude outta NY named Chad Venning, and (I think) big Richie Springs. Not sure if Cross is staying there but either way that group and DeGray is pretty deep....

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Cross has visited Indiana and will be visiting South Carolina and Miami. No idea how strong his relationship with Bergeron is, but I would bet he’s headed to a P5. Sounds like either IU (interestingly enough I think Bruiser has been his lead recruiter) or South Carolina. Not sure how much we need an...

Re: 2019-20 season

Yeah most things can be explained away logically. Still doesn’t mean I think that they make sense. Staying away from politics, Larry the Cable once sold out arenas. I see how. I see why. It still doesn’t make any sense to me. Guess it comes down to if you are looking at sense from the logical viewpo...
