Re: KAEO: Sy Chatman

My apologies about, as it turns out, misinformation about Chapman. Wheeler did say that Chapman would be back Saturday but it was possible that he said he expected him back by Saturday. It was either one or the other. In any event sorry for inaccuracies.

Re: KAEO: Sy Chatman

At the pregame last night in Massachusetts room, Tyson Wheeler spoke about the Northeastern game. When asked about Sy he said he was out tonight but expected back on Saturday. When asked why he was out he said he could not further elaborate. Impressed with Tyson Wheeler - feel he is an excellent add...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

I had my doubts about Walt Bell when he was hired but we need to see what happens next year. Hopefully we will see significant improvement. When he was hired, there were those who said getting a coordinator from a Power Five school like Florida State was a coup. I looked at it as Bell getting out of...

Re: A-10 / Mountain West Challenge

My ‘guess’ is that all four Atlantic 10 teams left out in 2020 would automatically be in for 2021. I do think the A10 is intent in giving every member an opportunity to participate and tried, in the inaugural, year to pick their best 10 representatives based on recent history. Hopefully we will have...

Re: A-10 / Mountain West Challenge

I do not think it is good the be excluded. If it was such a bad thing others in the conference could have opted out. It only shows where we fit on any stage when Duquesne gets invited and we do not. I would suspect these games will be on television and revenue and exposure from that beats playing so...

Re: GAME 5 9/28 AKRON

Good win.
Despite a difficult start this year I am always of the belief that it is more important to see how the team does under a new coach the second season.
I expected a difficult season (albeit not this difficult) this season. Cautiously optimistic about the program going forward.

Re: 2019-20 season

I was at the practice and had difficulty, initially, figuring who was who. I am not too concerned about the injuries in that all (with the possible exception of KTM should be fine when practice begins in October - although some may not be able to play on trip. The group seemed to co-exist pretty wel...

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

I know I have been not following college basketball too much this summer but I know I'm pretty much out of it when I saw the previous post and it mentioned Woodstock and the first thing I thought of was the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock musicical 'hippie' festival.
