What? He likes contact? He's especially fond of UConn? He needs to make money?

FYI, I think it was Tony Barbee who recruited JP to UMass.

The suckiest part of the whole story is that the guy withdrew from the U, that he didn't have the kind of experience here that would make him want to stay and graduate. Somehow, that concerns me more than whether or not he's an essential part of the team.

I don't understand why Lee is leaving the University, whether or not he is physically able to play basketball. He's been at UMass for three years. I would hope he would be pretty damn close to graduating. I think it's a shame for a guy to lose the opportunity to graduate from a decent school like UM...

[quote="DS Bruce Robertson"]Actually the best case scenario is that UMass wins a bunch of games and averages about 1,800 fans and Lappas is removed. " No, actually the best case is that Lappas completely stuns us all by proving that he knows what he's doing and takes the team to the F...

I hope Lappas is a genius and knows what he's doing and we win the league next year and get to the final four. Aren't we all hoping for that?

In evaluation St Joe's, don't ignore Tyrone Barley. The guy would start for any other team in the A10, and most teams in the country.

I think St Joe's on Saturday was the best coached team I ever saw. Did you see their passing? I mean, they were just whipping the ball around the court. Their defense was amazing. The bellied right up to the guy with the ball, and if they got beat, the rotation was perfect. They boxed out under the ...

The reason that Vigs will start of Lee is that the team played better after Lee was injured, and this was acknowledged by everybody--the press, other coaches, fans, and, I think, even Lappas. And why was the team better? Because Vigs is a complete player who can contribute in every aspect of the gam...

Not to rain on your parade, but players who get hurt in high school tend to get hurt in college. That's why the top programs lose interest in them. Cases in point: Gabe Lee, Alisane Kouyate. Hopefully Carrier will be an exception.

Mass Grad, I believe it was Pugh who made those comments, not Jenkins. Pugh, by the way, was a Barbee recruit, as I recall.

I just don't get the money thing. If we get a new coach and attendance goes up to Bruiser levels, that's 3,000 more butts in the seats at $20 per game, i.e., $60,000 per home game. That makes up the buyout in less than a season.
