you are very fortunate to have Pat Sellers on your staff. He is a quality person who will help you tremendously with recruiting. He is also one of the nicest guys you'll meet. I am now a umass fan since his hiring. This could be the start of a new marketing strategy. If we can get one new fan for e...

Whas a crap idea is right. If they want to take a gender equity stance then I suggest a new name for the women's teams only. Forever Minutemen!

Davis = Weasel

Coaches do have an unwritten rule that they won't tamper with a kid that has verballed. They do it anyway, but it's classless. With all the tradition of Indiana and recruiting power it has hard to believe Mike Davis needs to stoop so low. Weasel.

Calculated Risk

UMass isn't going to get the kind of player that a UConn can recruit right now. This is exactly the type of player we should be recruiting and it's great news we got him. If he was perfect in every way and still in the top 10 then UNC, Duke, UConn, AZ, etc... would be recruiting. But the key is that...

Kudos to coach for responding thoughtfully to the Q&A session. I disagreed with him on the reasons not to press more though. Depth was a problem, but I'd rather see bench guys like Cox coming in for 5 minutes to press and change the tempo than AA playing 36 minutes with no pressure. AA is our be...

reading up on the Northeastern guys record this doesn't exactly get me excited about our prospects the next several years. The other bad part is that this coach is not likely to have been recruiting the same caliber players that Lappas was, so I doubt he'll have much of a pipeline of players to ink....
