Re: UConn back to the Big East?

I'm scratching my head about the folks on twitter the past two days that are claiming that football has a much greater history of teams and fan interest than hoops at UMass. I have followed the basketball team intensely for over sixty years while my football interests have resembled a sine wave. My ...

Re: 2021 Recruiting

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

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...

"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...
