Actually I think the more likely comparison would be to the 1991 season with that great team that took us to the NIT final four and helped pour the foundation and set the mark for what followed. 1991 also had a similar SOS as we have this season.

I sometimes wonder if some of those old classic rabble rouser posters are still around here lurking, a bit mellower perhaps and with a different identity, but still keeping some of that old school board spirit alive. :wink:

Tough loss especially after a big win against URI. Nothing to do but pick ourselves up and get back after it.

What's the matter with the Minuteman having a gun? Minutemen were the elite of the militia - think of them as the 18th century version of the green berets. The best of the best. Minutemen were reknowned for their sharpshooting with rifled muskets. That deadly accuracey is what helped them to beat th...

John, since you're supposedly a basketball alum why not just call the AD's office tell them you are a basketball alum and ask for a jersey with a 44 on it? I'm kind of surprised you didn't keep your jersey when you graduated. Obviously, you have no idea what you're talking about. I spoke w/ Thor ri...

I thought he was the best player in the country when he was at UMass. Not sure how he would be considered selfish then or now. This just seems like a dumb comment more than anything Marcus is doing.

The students will get excited when this team gives them a reason to get excited. It would be great to expect them to be out there game in game out 5000+ strong. But that just isn't reality. Hopefully things will pick up down the stretch.

This is all the affect of a 9 year slide. Its not going to suddenly get better in one season especially when the team hsa not beaten one team that they were not supposed to beat. In order to shake the fan base out of the doldrums this team needs a big win ala uconn 2 yrs ago and then to keep kicking...

They are in a rebuilding year with a ton of freshman and sophmores and they are obviously not ready for primetime. In fact I think they have just 1 jr and 1 sr both of whom are local walk ons. Pretty obvious now why mumbles is not interested in playing umass or any decent team out of conference. In ...

Seems a bit quick to be hammering poor Dunphy. However he's in a somewhat similar position to where Bru found himself after inheriting the job from Saint John.

Thats a good line 87. I find that there's no shortage of stupidity on either end of the political spectrum - so in a sense both sides are somewhat correct. But there's also no reason why the Globe can't do a better job covering UMass. The Herald had an excellent editorial piece by UMass President Ja...
