Re: Game 12, 2020-21: at Richmond (2/23)

Why not play zone against a team that runs a Princeton style offense? how many zones work in college basketball for an extended period of time? Do we have anyone who can teach the zone? Do we have the length on the wings to play zone? My belief zones work best against teams that play motion offense...

what do you mean it does not help matters? I don't think recruits are dialing up UMasshoops.com/messageboard to see what the preecher says about who the next coach will be.

He will have to do a lot more than hitting the weight room. good player, not an NBA player.

Re: Boston College

Don't you get 30 or 31 games a season? Win or lose, regional rivalries are a good thing for both programs. In a shortened season, BC played Villanova, URI, St. Johns, and Florida... plus Minnesota (B1G vs ACC challenge?) In the prior year, they played both Saint Louis and Richmond, among others. BC ...

Re: Boston College

I am not defending BC but where do you want them to play umass? you get 28 or 29 games depending if you play an in-season tourney: they have 20 ACC games Big Ten ACC 1 Game so that leaves 7 games and why would BC want to play one of those games against a team that could beat me? Hell on the UMass si...

Re: Game 9, 2020-21: Davidson (1/24)

McCall is not a young HC anymore he’s in his 6th year as an HC and his improvement as a coach has been minuscule. The fact that he’s being applauded for out coaching McKilop in the first half and completely falling apart in the second half should not be praiseworthy it should be scrutinized and McCa...

Re: Who would you hire as HC for 2021-22

Wolf man let’s have some fun!! Preechs he phone rang and heard George Karl would have interest to work with his son as coach in waiting! What a coup to bring in one of the best Nba coaches of the 1996 season!!

Re: Who would you hire as HC for 2021-22

Let me ask a question and honestly answer. Did anyone know who Pat Kelsey or Matt McCall were before they go the job here? Coming from such "powerhouses" such as Winthrop and Chattanooga, these guys were household names? UMASS should be seen as a school that will give a coach 4-5 years to ...

Re: Who would you hire as HC for 2021-22

I didn't do a lot of research on any of the people on your list, I did enough to determine that you have an unconventional list. It's possible all of these guys would be amazing coaches for UMass, but it doesn't change the fact this is a really fucking weird list. You don't seem to have a problem hi...

here would be my list: 1. DK (Killings) 2. Tim Miles 3. Gus Argenal 4. Nevada Smith 5. David Patrick This is a really weird list. None of these guys are currently HCs Nevada Smith isn't even an assistant right now, he's a Director of Program Development at Texas Save Killings, as far as I can tell ...

Re: Who would you hire as HC for 2021-22

I don’t think this is a conversation just yet only 4 games into the season but I get why it is. That GMU game was a brutal loss and a brutal way to lose and the lack of progress is very concerning. My only real comment is that if they decide to use a search committee when the time comes to hire ano...

Re: Who would you hire as HC for 2021-22

If Seth went .425 at Umass it would be better than the last five years! If you want mediocre hire the Bryant guy or hire me Vermont. I’m sure you’d eliminate Tim miles for the same reason he isn’t a conference winner? The guy we have in there now is not a good coach. I said it day one I didn’t like ...
