Re: 2021 Recruiting

^ Steve Bamford is a retired college AD and ECAC commissioner. He lives in MA and has tremendous connections. He is very active on twitter and seems to know everyone and everything about our program. Recent tweets that I remember were Steve congratulating Marty Jacobson on his honorary degree and Da...

Re: 2021 Recruiting

I posted this comment in the "2019-20 Season" thread when Cormier was announced:

"Good for us. I see Bamford Senior's footprint all over this."

It fits here as well.

Re: Tip Off Madness - Only $300 per ticket

Guys - I wasn't suggesting that the ticket price is cheap. This appears to be a corporate event for many with employers buying the tickets. I just thought that folks here would like to know that Matt is involved. As for what an individual could write off, it is a reception, not a dinner, so if I att...

Re: 2019-20 season

Cormier is an interesting choice. He's 68 years old and has tons of experience as a head coach (Dartmouth, Fairfield), assistant at Villanova and for the Memphis Grizzlies. Also was a scout for 2 NBA teams. A potentially great mentor for MM. Good for us. I see Bamford Senior's footprint all over th...

Re: 2019-20 season

Jumping in here to steer this thread in a different direction. Do you think this will be an "item"? I'm not sure that I would notice. "The NCAA approved Wednesday a proposal from its men's basketball rules committee to extend the 3-point line more than a foot deeper than its current positioning. The...

Re: Noah Rak

^ Well played. I missed that a year ago. I just watched some of the Cannons opener - a 13-12 win over the New York Lizards. Noah was taking faceoffs for the Lizards. Also, James Fahey was on D once again for the Cannons. The last time that I needed physical therapy sessions, James was my therapist. ...

Re: 2019-20 season

Good point, wonder if moving the football game to Friday is a possibility. I love that we will be playing Virginia and moving the game would be good for some, but, barring a weather event, chances are that there will be several times as many UMass fans at football. And, as with hoops, BYU will use ...

College hockey scheduling change: UMass, citing a scheduling error, backed out of non-league game at Yale this fall. Instead, Yale will play at Boston College.
