Re: 2020 Recruiting

Looks like the proposed transfer rule might be in jeopardy. How might this factor into Fernandez? He'll need a waiver to play immediately, I believe... chances of that happening? If it doesn't, does that change your opinion of the forcing out/nudging out/booting out/kindly suggesting he leave/whate...

Re: 2020-21 Season

Tony and Tre seem very tight so I don't know if I see Tre leaving for another school, especially if we have a really good season in 20-21. It's well known Tony wants to be the head coach here, and if Tre left for another school I think his chances would take a big hit. Tre needs to do what's best f...

Re: 2020-21 Season

I think the only locks to start right now are Pierre and Mitchell. top 8 will include Weeks, Fernandes/Garcia, Gasperini, Santos, Walker, Dominquez/Degray. I think season will be Jan through March with tournaments starting in April. I suspect just 5 or 6 non conference games. If Fernandes plays, UM...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

anyone else follow DD on Twitter? well if you do, I'm sure you know who his Dad is...showtimedad or something like that. Anyway, he's a poor mans Lavar Ball...I feel like he could be trouble if DD doesn't get the playing time the old man feels like he should get. I can see him being a one and done k...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

There isn’t as much 5x5 being done in practice once the season starts as most people might think...add a walk on or 2 and they would not have a problem with 11 eligible and 1 sitting out. Take the 11 players they have right now(assume Noah is eligible as that is what it looks like) and assign them ...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

To expand a little on what I said before, I feel 11 eligible players is a good number(1 player redshirting or sitting out to use 12 scholarships), it covers you for injuries and makes the rotation manageable without too many sitting on the end of the bench not playing which can hurt chemistry. I un...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Unfortunately, I think Buggs is the weakest link... neck and neck with Kolton...if I had to choose one I'm taking Buggs! A) in the limited games he played, he was ahead of Kolton on the depth chart and B) what a great teammate he sees to be...not that Kolton's not, but Buggs just seems to be a bett...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Can't help but think this is somewhat on the fans I don't think his decision had anything to do with the level of fan support of UMass vs Pitt. if you are a potential recruit and you go to a OV and there are 10K+ fans vs 2K...where you going? Femi I think tried really hard to come here but at the e...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Can't help but think this is somewhat on the fans...not us on the board here...everyone on here is a die hard or you wouldn't be here...and I'll even extend that to another 100 or so die hards that either don't do social media or just can't for whatever reason do social media. Femi came to ATLEAST f...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I am not on Twitter and can't see the comments his post is getting. Anything interesting??? kinda what you'd expect...Pitt fans saying he's going there...Umass fans saying he's coming here. and trust me, Tony IS like that! If he told him I'm coming, I'm coming, don't worry about it I'm coming, etc....

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Femi just tweeted that he will announce his decision at 4pm. In the next 2 hours, is there anything we can do to change his mind? I never thought that we were going to get Femi, but I hope that I eat my words. I know my guy has been pretty spot on recently but I don't think OFFSeason has ever been ...
