Re: Game 26, 2018-19: at George Washington (2/20)

McCall is, by far, the worst coach since Ron Gerlusen. Given time he may be worse. Ray Wilson's teams played even worse (and I was at the some games with free tickets from him--RIP). Sadly, this team looked like those teams and I thought I would never see UMass play that bad again...MM should not e...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

I think this had something also to do with his firing after two years:

Re: State of the program

UMass will let coaches go after two years--Ray Wilson and Tom McLaughlin, lasted just two years:

CM lasted two horrible years as the football coach.

Re: Game 23, 2018-19: Fordham (2/6)

I give McCall credit for taking the blame, but why is acceptable that after almost two full seasons we have a head coach who is basically telling us he is doing nothing right? I have about 15 percent confidence right now that he’s the right guy. Can you imagine being this much of a failure in the c...

Re: Game 23, 2018-19: Fordham (2/6)

I have been watching UMass basketball for over 40 years and yes this reminds me of the early 80's teams/games. Just hope they can turn it around. Really, really sad.

About time. Glad Bamford listened to the old-timers. Now please dump the grey uniforms.

So you like losing? HAHA he does: 20-30 overall 7-15 in games decided by 5 points or less John Calipari's first fifty games at UMass 22-28 overall 4-10 in games decided by 5 points or less (I will give you that Kellogg probably left a lesser rebuilding project than Gurlefsen - but I don't recall ex...

Re: Game 14 - 2018-19 - La Salle 1/5/19

This. Team. Stinks. The offense is a joke. They don’t have a player who can feed the ball into the post. Pipkins has been horrible for a month. They can’t make a shot and yet the coach doesn’t put in a guy like Hayward in who might hit a three or two. This is absolute bullshit. Totally fucking agre...

Re: future scheduling talk

So I was just looking at the 2019 schedule (so I could mark up my new 2019 calendar!) and the UConn and BYU games have TBD under location. Is there a possibility that one or both could be played in Amherst?? This site (usually very accurate) lists the UConn game at Gillette Stadium and the BYU game...

Re: Head coaching options

Harasymiak took the job as the DBs coach. Can't remember any successful FCS head coach taking an FBS job as a position coach. I guess his buddy being the defensive coordinator at Minnesota had a lot to do with the move.

Re: Head coaching options

It was a timing issue. Wish we could get him as DC. Salary would be double what he's making at Maine (150k vs at least 300k at UMass). Doubt he would leave to be the DC at UMass but you never know...Really did want him to be the next head coach. Oh well, go Bell!
