Re: @BC game ?

When a BC guy is complaining about UMass, you know we must be doing something right.

Re: Game 25, 2018-19: at George Mason (2/13)

Encouraged by tonight's game. While we lost another close game, the fact that Pierre had another great game and you see freshman Diallo and Tre Wood play very well gives one some optimism going forward.
Hopefully we play well against GW next week in a 'should win' game.

Re: State of the program

The Cage may have been somewhat dingy but the atmosphere in my 4 years there 72-76 far surpasses the Mullins. I know there are others on this site were there any I am sure before during the Erving years. (Which I missed) The 4 years there you could always count on a packed - many times raucous crowd...

Karl Pierre is a consummate team player. Works to improve his game, unselfish, and someone who will be the cornerstone of this team.

Re: State of the program

Niles You are correct. There is nothing to say that anyone can drop in for a practice. However, there are many people that, over the years drop in occasionally. I, personally, have never been to one of McCalls but have been once in a while to others Kellogg Bruiser etc. I see other people there and ...

Re: State of the program

McCall is the epitomy of coachspeak.
He kicks a person who is a donor and the example of a great fan out of the Mullins center.

All of these players save for Holloway Pipkins and McLean are his recruits. I don't buy the fact that there not trying.

Re: State of the program

I am sorry, however, I am not seeing a lack of effort.

Bad play and results does not necessarily equate to lack of effort.

Re: Game 23, 2018-19: Fordham (2/6)

Now that Off Season has mentioned it,a friend of mine, who never posts,and is nothing but a supporter of this team and UMass sports was thrown out of a shoot around by McCall and Bamford. Unlike me he never criticizes and, as an avid high school sports fan, offers names of players he see that he thi...

Re: Game 23, 2018-19: Fordham (2/6)

I was there and left at halftime.

I do not fault the players. I believe they are doing there best. It is simply a case of very poor coaching.
