Ronnie DeGray reclassifies to 2020.
Damn. So does this mean that every school that didn't sign him after the signing period failed and were scrapping the barrel in their recruiting?

Re: KAEO LuWane Pipkins (PG-2015)

I would be a lot more on board with that sentiment (I once anticipated his jersey being retired) if Pipkins had not been a serious cancer on the team this past season and acted like a COMPLETE dick on his way out. Yes, he is a student athlete. True. The University of Massachusetts gave him a scholar...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

I don't really care about saying anyone was right or wrong and I am not of a particulalry strong opinion- positive or negative- about any of the recruits. I don't know. I'm more interested in some of the logic and assumptions being made here. And the curious certainty about what is motivating the co...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

^^ What he said! Similar to what happened when Kellogg left. Filled as many scholarships as possible- now they are mostly gone. I'll give McCall the benefit of the doubt but feel like he doesn't really have a clear plan on who he wants on the team. More like who is available. And it is equally poss...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Personally, I'm no longer happy with the direction of the program. I thought bringing on Bergeron was great, potentially brilliant, even putting aside the excellent players he brought with him. But this business of desperately filling every scholarship strikes me as strange and self-defeating. Even...

He has great size for a guard and can shoot it pretty well. Welcome to UMass C.J Jackson!
And 43 responses after Jackson96's original post announcing CJ Jackson we finally get a "welcome to UMass!" Phew. Now back to the tapes.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

I think it'd be cool if a player made a tape of all his bad plays. Just put it out there. 'I have better moments, but here are some examples of how bad it can get.' And enough of this dissident sound background. Toss in something really morose by, say, Tchaikovsky or Debussy.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Well, who actually got him on the staff, McCall or Bamford? Well, respectfully, you are making a different point now. But if we are going to do that, who actually got McCall on staff? Yes, the AD. And why does it even matter? AD, Head Coach, and Assistants are part of the same program and they buil...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Ok back to being concerned, Yes we got Tre Mitchell and some solid local kids, but the credit there goes to Tony Bergeron. Now, we're back to reality, on the recruiting trail, and the 2 guys (Sean East and potentially Mondo) we recruit to come to UMass are guys with 0 D1 offers? I'm going to keep i...

Re: 2019-20 Coaching Changes thread

I think it'd be fun if Ed Cooley got the job and then did a podcast trashing Pipkins as the explanation for why he was leaving. And, for good measure, added that he "didn't give a damn" about how Providence did next year.

Re: KAEO: Tre Wood

Tre is headed to LIU Brooklyn How perfect is that? I dont remember, was he someone DK was in on before McCall was hired? Or, was he a straight up McCall recruit? Either way, he seems more of a DK player. I liked the spot minutes and change of pace he provided in OOC and his first game back from con...

Hard to compete with St John's.
Plus if he loves the city, especially NYC, he won't like the university of amherst
Well, if a big city is the criteria, it DEFINITELY rules out Stetson, too.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Well if you bring in guys that are ok with transferring from another program, you can't really expect they won't transfer again. No doubt. Laurent is now at his 3rd school, so even though I personally liked his game that fact probably means something. I hope the house cleaning allows us to settle o...
