Re: State of the program

Wichita fans can be as dismissive as they want. They're still in Wichita.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Wish he made a different decision, but not a shock. His major relationship was with the Assistant who recruited him. He was let go along with the other Assistants. Huge number of players transfer which doesn't make the program look good. Add a major recruit at his position and the young man has to q...

Re: 2019-20 Coaching Changes thread

After a social media encounter with Jerry Stackhouse, I hope he has a great run at Vanderbilt. The man is a total class act and I suspect he'll be an excellent college coach.

Re: NCAA Tournament 2019

My food tip for Buffalo is the Dinosaur BBQ. Not quite the Syracuse original, but damned good.

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

Won't feel comfortable until UMass has signed Letters of Intent in hand.

Re: State of the program

Some of guys coming in were recruited by the assistant coaches. I wonder if any will decommit. My understanding is that all 3 have signed Letters of Intent. Schools will often release them if a head coach is let go, but not typical when it's an assistant who moves or is moved on. The one alternativ...

Re: 2019 Hall of Fame Classic At Mohegan Sun

I've heard that argument made. They would, however, be a major step up from some of the home games we've gotten from other tournaments.

Re: State of the program

We should definitely bring in Pitino. At the same time we should be proactive and petition the NCAA to be put on probation.

2019 Hall of Fame Classic At Mohegan Sun

UMass joins Virginia, Arizona State and St Johns at Mohegan Sun in November. Other teams are Central Connecticut, Rider, Columbia and Vermont. Much more attractive field than we've seen in prior tournaments. This one may actually draw at the casino and on campus.

Re: Vote for Cale for the Hobey Baker

Aside from the fact he deserves the award, how great would it be for UMass Athletics to have their first Hobey Baker Award winner and their first consensus FBS All-American in the same academic year. Vote early and often.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Actually think this class will compare favorably to Whipple's last year. They had two highly regarded recruits in Norwood and Jefferson, but dropped off after that. If everyone who has verballed signs they'll have more 3* recruits this year and I suspect there are a few more to come. Given how late ...

Re: Assistant Coaching Staff

So far, all's quiet on the defensive front. Wouldn't mind seeing a Defensive Coordinator under the tree for Christmas.
