Re: Game 9, 2018-2019 Holy Cross, 12-4-18

Wow...UMass is a bad basketball team right now....McCall looks stunned and searching for answers....this team plays shit defense....Holy Cross deserved that game.

Re: What will we look like in 2018-2019?

Anybody have any insight on Hayward from LSU? He’s absolutely buried on the bench...is he injured, are they potentially thinking about a redshirt (seems unlikely)..is there a discipline issue? Can’t believe he transferred here from LSU for this scenario...I know we have depth at guard but he hasn’t ...

Re: Game 4, 2018-2019 Howard 11/16/18

Wow....Did not see this when I woke up Tuesday morning. Thought we’d be 4-0 with plenty of warts and issues, but the comfort of knowing that MM teams out hustle and are generally tougher than their opponents. On top of that I thought we were flat out more athletic and more talented than these 2 oppo...

Re: Game 3 - Harvard 11/13

Maybe there is some of that but it doesn’t explain the lack of defensive intensity and rebounding. The eyeball test looked like Harvard won on most of the 50/50 balls. I felt like RH played timid, he had a few opportunities down low where I felt he didn’t go up strong and he got stripped/blocked.......

Re: Game 3 - Harvard 11/13

I’m not nearly ready to throw in the towel on this season and anyone who is should step back and breathe a little...but please stop citing youth as an excuse...that is utterly ridiculous. The starting lineup has a combined 19 years of college... Pip 4 Pierre 2 Laurent 4 Cobb 4 RH 5 Everyone’s bench ...

Re: Head coaching options

I was speaking with two of my customers recently, one is an Alabama grad the other is an Ohio State grad and both are big college football fans. They each talked about coaches they follow: Curt Cignetti the HC at Elon and a former Nick Saban Alabama assistant. Former recruiting coordinator who’s ha...

Re: Total Wins

UMass has now put the finishing touches on the “How to screw up your transition from FCS to FBS” manual. Presidents, AD’s and alumni will thank us for clearly illustrating what not to do.....of course they won’t need the manual because avoiding the pitfalls requires only common sense....have the bac...

Re: 2018 - Game 3: @ Georgia Southern 9/8

We’ve lost the last 2 games 89-34. 0-2. Duquesne does not count...Program in as bad a situation as they’ve been...including Molnar. This is Whip’s 5th season. Whip clearly has zero emphasis on defense, as his background clearly indicates...we are undersized and slow. Play calling continues to mystif...

Re: 2018 Season

They need to split next two (sweep would be great), then beat Charlotte, CC, UConn, and Liberty to get to 6. I think S Fla, BYU, and GA are L's. The game at Ohio is leaning L but that could flip. best case 8 wins, worst case 3 (cant lose to Char or CC at home). The team has two major issues. 1. Whi...

Re: Game #2 @ Boston College

There’s no excuse for this kind of performance. Bamford should be meeting with Whipple Monday morning. This is inexcusable, not only are we overmatched but we’re not competing. That's a little overboard IMO. This hasn't been pretty but it's also the second game. Must admit that I'm dumbfounded by s...
