Re: 2019-20 season

Harvard odds seem too low. Only a 6% better odds of beating Harvard than Virginia? I'd put the Harvard game at worst in the 30-40% range. It's now 9% better for against Harvard. I anticipate that if we keep this level of play up for the next few games that you'll see those numbers get to where you'...

Re: 2019-20 season

^ Definitely. We will probably be favored in our next 2 games, but very well might be underdogs in those next 6 games you listed (the first four will impact the last 2 vs the Ivies). 9-4 OOC would be terrific but 7-6 is my guess. Under .500 would be disappointing. According to ESPN right now, here'...

Re: Game 5, 2019-20: Rider (11/20)

Still remember this comeback. UMass used a 40-9 run over 12 minutes in the second half to overcome a 22-point deficit: https://umassathletics.com/news/2010/11/12/Gurley_Riley_Spur_Amazing_2nd_Half_Comeback_In_77_67_Win.aspx I remember this other one that the article metioned: The last time UMass ra...

Slow pace with defensive dominance. Very different style of basketball than most DI teams out there.

Re: Game 11: @ Northwestern - 11/16/2019

The red zone has been shitty...but the team is actually moving the ball so far today. Only down 7-6 and all of that came on the blocked kick for Northwestern.

Re: Game 11: @ Northwestern - 11/16/2019

I was thinking to myself "maybe I should stop watching after the first quarter...it's been good and I don't want to see when that ends"

Turns out it was 1 play into the second quarter.

That's back to back picks by UMass. Hopefully we can turn this one into some points though.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Someone from East's hometown posted this in the Facebook team page. Crazy that a kid who played so closely with the #5 Overall recruit in the ESPN Top-100 2018 rankings (and a Celtics lottery pick) wasn't recruited at all in HS. Then he goes to a prep school for a year, gets stronger and now he's w...

Re: 2019-20 season

Also - those odds will change as the season progresses. We're still only 3 games in with a freshmen heavy squad, so the book on how things will go hasn't been written yet.

Regardless, I'm still thinking 7-9 wins OOC makes sense. If we get more, awesome. If we get less, sadness.

Re: KAEO: TJ Weeks

Amin can go straight from UMass to ESPN, as far as I'm concerned. As for the players, how about this: Pierre’s work ethic is common knowledge at this point, something he’s trying to pass on. Pierre introduced Weeks to his grueling shooting routine on The Gun over the summer — 1,000 shots in the mor...

Re: UMass Disconnect

Sincere question.... Does anyone that has graduated from UMass in the last 20 years have any interaction with the AA? I graduated in 2009 and personally do not. I do have friends who are participating with it quite a bit though, and have run into them at a few outings in Boston (that I was unaware ...

Re: NCAA votes to allow athletes to profit from likeness

Here's the opinion of a bright investment guy that I read regularly - start at the bottom: Issaquah Capital @Issaquahfunds 17m So now Jordan’s Air Jordan Brand and Nike can essentially bid for talent outright, direct those athletes to Jordan/Nike Schools and shut out the competition..

Novel idea: play the fight song when we score a goal.
