Re: 2020-21 Season

So right now we have 8 confirmed OOC games. 2 in the 2020 Jamaica Classic Wake Forest UNC Greensboro Missouri State The 2019 Jamaica classic featured 8 teams, including URI. Like most tournaments it looks like it was broken up into 4 and 4. URI played North Texas and LSU in Jamaica, and Nicholls at...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

^ I understand all that, but it seemed naive to still be telling the world that we are a choice if we are not. That's just the way it is these days. Happens all the time. Fact is most people following a kid's decision aren't as keyed in to his potential choices and who could actually take him as de...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Say what? https://scoopmantv.com/2020/04/11/rifen-miguel-ready-to-decide-on-april-15th/ What year we talkin' bout here? Still recruiting 2020? What else don't we know? To my knowledge and I believe it's correct, UMass is done for this year. Just because a kid has UMass (or any school) in his "top c...

Re: Recruiting -- 2018 and beyond

I think Gicewicz will be really nice add. Does anyone know if Ryan Sullivan is coming this year? On Bamford's show, Carvel mentioned 3 forwards and 2 defensemen definitely coming this year. Lopina and MacDonald should be 2 of the forwards (and 2 good ones at that), but then that leaves Ryan Lautenb...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

After rsox saw Offseasons post OFFseason is a quality source as I mentioned before. His information comes through often, have to give that consideration. I changed my CB not long ago today after touching base with some other sources on the matter as well. No disrespect to OFFseason but I just wante...

I wonder if Brycen Goodine is a name that we will look into..
UMass has reached out to Goodine, and Noah Fernandes.

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Mike Traini tweeted some minutes ago he's still confident in his prediction. I'm not holding my breath. For what I had heard most recently I was, but OFFseason's post here came after I was asked. To his credit he is not a glory hound and is often correct in his assessments. If he has heard differen...

Re: Jamaica Classic 2020

^ To clarify I was quoting that article re: the changes to MTEs. I read the release from UMass and it does say they'll get two and two from this MTE next season, which is different than what the proposed changes would be. The part that says "up to four games" in an MTE in that article is listed unde...

Re: 2021 Recruiting

What's level of competition Tyriek is playing against? I mean, 2 zillion points and a zillion rebounds is impressive, but against whom? Public high schools in RI, or in other words, not the best. It's the primary reason it would be in Tyriek's best interest to at the very least transfer to prep sch...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

To clarify the last two, and I do always recommend reading the pieces over on Fight Massachusetts, these two players were no longer takes for UMass this cycle. That's different than a player electing to leave on their own. FWIW.

Re: Makar The Younger signs on

Taylor is going to have a very tough act to follow obviously. His Jr A stats aren't as gaudy as Cale's, and he's also a forward not a defenseman. Taylor is not playing in all of Brooks' games this year either, though I do think the plan was for him to come to UMass next year. Taylor is bigger than C...

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...
