Re: 5 year anniv of last NCAA Tourney game

We were seeded higher than we deserved. Awful game for a national audience to see. Had to hurt recruiting. Ugh.

Re: State of the program

Only two A-10 teams got into the big dance. Hopefully we move up so we don’t have to play on Wed next year. Conference is down so moving up 5 to 6 slots should be achievable if we get some decent recruits and play hard.

Ditto. I also was excited after the Nevada Reno game.

Re: State of the program

This program has reached rock bottom. I vote for getting rid of McCall and start over. A good coach gets players to play. Period. This team played much harder earlier in the season Even thought we got blown out by Nevada Reno, they never gave up. Do you think we could beat Providence now, smoke Sout...

Sadly our “Refuse to Loose” motto has been replaced by “wait till next year”.

Will it come down to motivation and coaching?

Re: Should McCall be given a third year

During his first year I seem to remember him removing two of his players (starters?),for shoplifting. There was a joke going around then that Umass led the nation in steals. I think Umass is making a mistake by keeping McCall and it is time to cut our losses. What would define an acceptable improvem...

Re: Game 31, 2018-19: at Rhody (3/9)

I sense from the above posts that McCall cannot relate to his players. Time to suck it up Umass, admit you made a mistake, and do the right thing.

Re: Game 31, 2018-19: at Rhody (3/9)

Not much to look forward to, except the surprise win every now and then. I am hoping for a new coach, but doubt if this will happen. Unless we get some surprise talent in, next year could-be even worse, if that is possible.

It looks like it will be a long road to success. Not sure if we will every reach it. Future looks bleak.

Re: State of the program

Probably worth a try. We do play better against tougher teams. Could help with recruiting.

Nevada Reno, Providence, and, Harvard were not powder puffs, however.

Re: Game 26, 2018-19: at George Washington (2/20)

I went to some of the Ray Wilson games. It was a tough time . Remember us losing to University of Hartford back then. Not sure if Ray was the coach then. Most people I knew back then thought we were a joke. Enjoy d the 70’sand 90’s however. When the Mullen center opened seats were at a premium. It w...
