Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

Bell basically started from scratch so it is no surprise that the team was absolutely pathetic in 2019 and 2020. I suspect we will see marketable improvement next season.

Re: 2021 Season

Sports Psychic is going 3-9 for Minutemen next year.. The fall of the Patriots, which is underway, will coincide with the rise of College Football in Massachusetts.. BC may be a top 10 team in a year or two and UMass will actually sneak into top 25 in the near future. 5 years ago it would be crazy t...

Does anyone know about the extension of the series with UCONN?

Re: Game 5, 2020-21: George Mason (12/30)

Let's see if McCall gets his head out of his ass and switches to a zone defense. I stand by my opinion that he should be shown the door and a good spot for that would be on Jan 10th. With the game cancelled for this Saturday that would give him two games to save his job for the rest of the year. The...

Pathetic. Bamford please grow a set and fire McCall tomorrow. The guys do not play hard for him and continually make dumb mistakes.

Re: Game 4, 2020-21: Bryant (12/21)

I will say it again. Switch to a zone defense as our man to man is terrible and our press is pitiful.

Re: Game 4, 2020-21: Bryant (12/21)

Not surprised at all that we lost as our defense blows. No way should we ever press and maybe go 3/4 of game in a zone to protect against getting tired and fouls as McCall should basically go with 7 guys (starters and then Weeks and McCrory). Walker and K Mitchell should rarely play, Dominiquez shou...

Re: The Painful Truth-Good Intentions Gone Awry

My thoughts are this.. I donate about 10K a year to UMass athletics and Isenberg. If they drop FBS football, I will never donate another cent as I refuse to support any organization that acts like a pussy. Hire the right people and things will improve. Coastal Carolina, San Jose State, UAB all start...

Bryant is going to be a tough game. I wish they had found an automatic W game.

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

stay the course on Bell. i think one more losing year in 2021 is all we need to deal with as in 2022 I think we will have shot at .500 or better. 2021 has 5 or 6 definite losses on schedule if you count Army, two must win games (Maine and RI) and 4 that we should be competitive (EMich, Toledo, UConn...

Re: SIGNING DAY

i think they did a decent job except for the lack of a RB or two. My hope is that Brady Olson turns out to be a stud and becomes the QB as I don't think any of the guys on current roster can help make us a winner. 104th ranked isn't bad but I would like to see us get into the top 75 year in and year...

Re: Games 1 & 2, 2020-2021 Northeastern (12/11 & 12/13)

two other pts. More Weeks, less Pierre.

More importantly for us on the board.. It very well could be true that McCall at his best is just marginal and will need to be shown the door if they do not have a winning season.

Re: Games 1 & 2, 2020-2021 Northeastern (12/11 & 12/13)

Note to coach.. STOP PRESSING ALL GAME. It is a loosing strategy unless you have better athletes than your opponent. Even then, it should be used sparingly. They lost the game due to too many easy buckets and free throws.
