Re: Next year's class of recruits

From what I've read over the past couple months Makar needs to get bigger and stronger to play defense in the NHL. Everyone is confident that that will happen over the next one-three years and that the collegiate hockey, especially Hockey East, will give him and opportunity to play against bigger gu...

CarsonL726 wrote:Any news on Austin Albrecht? Seems like he was going to be a pretty big piece of this year's class, but still no formal announcement from the school on his official addition to the roster.
He's still posting stuff on twitter related to UMass, so I'd assume he's still coming.

Re: 2017 Recruiting

Simon seems like a excellent player from a very bad team who didn't have much of a chance to showcase his talent this past fall:

Re: Ellen Noble; National Cyclocross Champion

Ellen is also a super person and great with kids. Recently, my daughter and I had cycled to my daughter's soccer practice in Nonotuck Park. Ellen was there with her coach just doing a little off-day riding. After my daughter's practice we approached Ellen (who was resting). As my daughter was also t...

Not saying it's true, but young men with a few drinks in them are often willing to do some very stupid things.

Re: Pat Kelsey

Watch Bamford's eye movement between 15:15 and 15:20. Seems like he knows more about Kelsey's future than he's letting on.

Re: Candidates for 2017 UMass HC vacancy

^ Who is worrying? I don't see anyone worrying. In fact I think everyone is in agreement that it's a homerun hire and we'll deal with everything as it comes. My hunch, is that if Kelsey is going to eventually be hired away, it will be to Xavier. I'm hoping for Kelsey's success here and that Chris M...

That would look bad to prospective coaches and vengeful to most everyone else (besides us).

Re: Candidates for 2017 UMass HC vacancy

Here's one that mentions all 3 http://wwlp.com/2017/03/10/who-will-replace-derek-kellogg-at-umass/ Kinda weird that the race of one, but not all, of the potential candidates is mentioned. I haven't watched enough college basketball the last few years to know what race any of the rest are, but I don...

Re: Should we tweet/ask players to stay

I'll call him out ... Skip Connors, a benchwarmer during the Ron Gerlufsen era, is tweeting players telling them to transfer. Seems like he is bitter about this: “We want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the contributions of Skip Connors who oversaw the property during a time of athletic adm...
