Re: Umass Hoops - It's enigmatic!!!!!

Holy Cross is the one that bothers me the most, as they built what a 12 point lead in that one? At least the Howard one they were never really in it, save for a 2nd half run that cut the lead to 2. Harvard could have been won, but HC is the only one I put in the "should have" category after the fact.

Re: Game 10, 2018-2019 Providence 12/7/18

GREAT WIN. Was recording the game. rewinded that bullshit 3 second call on Cobbs 3. Very bad call and could have ruined a bad night. Beat Friars and the refs tonight. Hope Laurent gets better soon, seemed in good spirits on bench. I’m not posting this in the heat of the game, or after a loss. But w...

Re: What will we look like in 2018-2019?

I think when McCall realized that his team was playing awful defense it made no sense to put Hayward in at that point. He probably thought it might be a close game, but not one in which Umass gave up 82 points. It's pretty clear what Hayward's role is. 3-pt shooter off the bench. He wouldn't have se...

Re: Game 9, 2018-2019 Holy Cross, 12-4-18

If D is their problem, and it is, I'm cool with where Hayward is. Pierre and Cobb are long and lean, but don't have the quickness to stay with the opposition on D. Sy is a guaranteed bucket when 1 on 1. Especially when he's going up against a more experienced offensive player. Both him and Diallo ha...

Re: Around the A-10 (2018-19)

I know the A-10 is down, and I know Rothstein is a hyperbolic psycho but does anyone really think GW losing to a very solid Vermont team is bad?

Re: Game 8, 2018-2019 Quinnipiac 11/28/18

Game could have gone better but I won’t cry over a win. Disappointed to hear about the people yelling at Pip and Laurent during the anthem to take their hoodies off and calling them pieces of crap though. Yeah what was that about? I saw John Walfish mention it on twitter and thought that it was jus...

^ I'd have to imagine it is. If you're paying $4.99/mo for it, they won't take in to account the fact that it's being televised somewhere else.

Re: VEGAS GAMES 11/22 &11/23

Could not disagree more re: weak scheduling. Without Howard and APBU we don’t get SIU and the chance to play Nevada. I like the fact that they play a few smaller NE schools so no problem with QU, HC and Umass Lowell. So that leaves what, Farleigh Dickenson as the only real complaint? And I’m pretty ...

I think it was kinda of a dumb post given his relationship to the program , but I wouldn’t say I’m worked up over it. Not necessarily sure what there is to gain by tweeting that, but that’s how he felt. Seems to me that a lot of UMass folks get worked up over every little thing on Twitter. Sure som...

Disagree about these games at the Cage. Cage holds what 4,000ish? Imagine how awful it would look if the Cage was 25% full?

Re: KAEO: John Buggs III

I would be surprised if Pipkins doesn't grad transfer. It would make sense for him.. maybe Illinois. If Pip decides to Grad Transfer, I hope he aims higher than Illinois. I understand it makes the most sense being he's form CHI, but if he leaves Umass I hope it's to go to a better team or to go pro.

^ I would guess it was an injury because even if he isn’t a part of the rotation, you’d think he’d get in there once we were up 30. They showed him on the sideline last night and it didn't even look like he was in uniform. He had sweatpants and a t-shirt on. Maybe he's just injured and McCall wants...

Re: Game 4, 2018-2019 Howard 11/16/18

Looks like his tweets were deleted. He also has a screenshot of someone's comment on this board with all the games and where you can watch them so he visits the site. Probably realized those tweets were in poor taste.

Re: Game 5, 2018-2019 Arkansas Pine-Bluff 11/19/18

- Students gone for Thanksgiving break
- Playing a crap opponent
- Coming off two straight home losses, one to Howard

That turnout was the most predictable thing in the world. Not sure why so many people are getting hung up about it. Get the attendance up over 5,000 for league play.

Re: Game 5, 2018-2019 Arkansas Pine-Bluff 11/19/18

ESPN + needs to do something with their commercials. To keep seeing the same commercials every time out is pretty bad. If no one is buying the spots, there's only so much they can do. They can't just make commercials appear out of nowhere. They are relying more on the $4.99 a month that we are payi...
