Re: 2020 Season

For clarification here, I believe what Bamford said was more to the effect that UMass in this recruiting cycle cannot take mostly or all transfers in the hopes of having some sort of immediate, band-aid-type success He was talking about letting the current coaching staff have the time to build the p...

Re: Jamaica Classic 2020

With the new Multi-Team Event (MTE) rules, you won't be getting four games as part of a tournament anymore. That should take effect officially next season, but there may be some tournaments that are implementing it for this season. https://www.bloggingthebracket.com/2019/6/27/18307537/college-basket...

Re: KAEO: ‪Khalea Turner-Morris‬

Does anyone get granted a waiver because their program was in bad shape? Seems like there would be a hell of a lot of waivers in that case. Thanks rsox1221. Would you mind explaining what the criteria are for getting a waiver, and what the situation was at CSU last year that gives them confidence a...

KAEO: Dibaji Walker

As of Friday night Walker had not received a waiver. However I was told that the coaching staff feel "very confident" that he will get one given the situation he left at Cleveland State last season. CSU was, to put it delicately, a hot mess last year and that plays in Walker's favorite regarding the...

Re: KAEO: ‪Khalea Turner-Morris‬

Turner-Morris has been medically DQ'd. He'll remain on scholarship at UMass but it's not a basketball scholarship and doesn't count towards the team's scholarship limit.

Because KTM was medically DQ'd that means that Dibaji Walker is on scholarship and not walking on this season.

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

^^ I don't know the details. I was told it was a "travel document" issue that they couldn't get resolved in time. If anyone knows the full story we would all like to hear it unless it is something that should not be made public. Quite odd. A US citizen traveling from the US through PR to the USVI w...

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

So was Carl the one that had a passport issue? I thought I heard somewhere MM said a player was having an issue with that. Correct. I didn't want to give the name until it was obvious and also to clarify that he wasn't left behind due to injury. I'm a touch confused. This is the US Virgin Islands. ...

Based on tweets from Alan, it looks like this was done in conjunction with the Department. It may only be two pieces, but they look pretty good, especially the shorts.
Won't be the last options for throwback gear, all of it licensed through the department. Keep an eye out mid-August

Re: 2019-20 season

^ JMO but I don't see a way the University of Massachusetts is playing a one-off road game at a MAAC school. There is only a minuscule chance because Wheeler just came from there, but even then you are significantly more likely to do at least a H+H than a one-off road game at a low major. I would im...

Re: UConn to Big East 2020

UConn is going to leave the AAC and join the BE as soon as they can. They are making this move for their hoop programs and Olympic sports and not because of football, so they aren't going to hang out in the AAC for two extra years so football can be better served. UMass faced a very similar situati...

No to hockey and men's lacrosse, but they do sponsor women's lacrosse

His name is Gianni Thompson, he's a 2021 wing, and the profile name on his Twitter is 'Michael Scott', not his real name

^Not for Friday. You get two games. UMass vs Harvard and Clarkson vs Notre Dame. Saturday you only get one game.
Yes of course, one ticket to both games on Friday. I read it as both UMass games, my mistake
