Re: 2019-20 season

Looks like a guy who can't relate to players or isn't social enough at gatherings.

Re: 2019-20 season

This is the first piece I have read by Touri and it's pretty good. I think Walfish provides the best coverage and most interesting writing in recent memory. I think he has more than filled Vautour's shoes. Better in my mind. I put him there with Tom Kertes from the Flint era.

I would to propose a ban on the use of the term snowflake on this board unless of course you are talking about something weather-related.

You are right he didn't kill either of those things, he only killed the basketball program.
Hey, wait! I thought Ford did that when he deliberately recruited bad players?

The international game has some funny rules, no? Maybe a larger cylindar will help LP improve on his 30% shooting percentage.

He's not complaining or making excuses. Where do you get that?

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.
