Re: Pitino to UMass

What if John Wooden’s corpse rises from the grave, would anyone want him (the corpse of Sam Gilbert would NOT come with him)? For me it comes down to what Wooden’s corpse looks like in maroon pants.

Re: 2019-20 season

After years of coming in too hot with my W-L predictions, I think I’m going to sit this year out. I suspect they will win between 12-16 games. This is year 3 for McCall but feels more like year 1. Saw some good things and some concerning things in the first couple years (the concerning outweighing t...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Well you can cross one potential 2020 pg off the list as Isaiah Wilson just commited to Richmond.

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

Yeah the speed of the game is my only real concern for Tre and that’s mainly at the defensive end. I do think having played some tougher competition in the prep ranks and in AAU will help him, as will the fact that he really seems to have made a continuous effort to transform his body.

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

I can’t really take much away from this trip. It seemed to be a successful one. They won by a lot and it looks like they had fun off the court. That’s about all I can take away without having watched a second of it. Given the scores of the games, it does sound like they are trying to play fast. Also...

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

They beat an All Star team by 69 according to Amin:

Not sure what planet the opponents are all stars on, but hey, a blowout is a blowout is something we can all agree on. I think.

We should change this subject to a more benign topic. What do you folks think of Trump?

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

These freshmen come in here and have all been metaphorically "blown" by everybody under the sun on social media... they expect that to continue but the harsh reality is that people suck and all of the praise dries up very fast. At that age, it can be a huge culture shock when you go from the pentho...

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

When I say things are weird I am mainly talking about Carl not travelling. Bamford’s statement was a bit odd too. None of it really means much to me. And while I am happy to be getting coverage from the local paper down there, I am happier that football will have real games soon enough.

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

This whole scene is a little weird-o-rama. I don’t particularly care very much, though. I just want things to get better on the court.

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I’ll say the same thing I say every time someone brings up the lame “We need more kids from MA” argument: I don’t care where the kids come from as long as they can play a bit and are good fits on and off the court. I think it’s a lot of hand wringing over nothing until things actually play out.

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

What if they send out a press release on UMass Amherst letterhead that is more red than maroon and proceed to offer no details about the games but instead just list all of the players on the roster who are not from Massachusetts? Would that be a big deal?

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

The only thing I care about is what players are going to be featured on our version of the famous LeBron and company banana boat photo?

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I think with KTM’s knee issue (and also his inability to really carve out a role for himself even when healthy) we could use another big for next year (and the years to follow). That said, with the way the game has been heading (and some would say it has already arrived) and the level we are at, I w...
