Re: 2018 - Game #1 The Dukes

I see nothing wrong with playing 2 QBs in the first half of a game they correctly thought they were doing to dominate. The performance Saturday builds the confidence of both Ford and Comis... not to mention the coaches and rest of the roster being more confident in them as well. It also gives your n...

Re: 2018 - Game #1 The Dukes

My only complaint with the game today was that the Umass pass rush was basically non existent. Hopefully that was by design. Really impressed with the entire offense, sound tackling on defense, and the kicking units. The way they looked today, if they show up and play hard at BC next weekend (and ca...

Re: Djery Baptiste

Baptiste was a 4-star recruit according to espn services. This seems like a really promising get. " ESPN Analyst Updated 01/21/2015 Strengths: Baptiste owns the type of physical tools which simply can't be taught. He's incredibly long, very cut, and equally mobile and athletic. He's as intimidating ...

Re: Game 18, 2017-18: St. Joseph's (1/14)

UMass is over achieving. Not sure we could say that at any point in DK's era.

I'm really impressed with the way the team is trending. The future is bright.

Re: Game 12, 2017-18: Georgia State (12/20)

The losses hold no true consequences that's the good news.

They have shown all season they can follow up bad performances with good ones. Hopefully that remains the case moving forward.

Just when you think we're on on to something... we lose at home to Georgia state.

Gross.

huge confidence builder for the coach, players, and fans today.

There is genuine hope they're building something now.

Re: Game 7, 2017-2018 @ Quinnipiac 11/29

Back to the refs, Miller was clearly inbounds before he hint that three. The ref calling him out of bounds was the worst call of the game. We lose a three and Q goes down the other end and hits one. Yes, there were a lot of issues for us in this game, but we would have won if we got even close to a...

Re: Game 7, 2017-2018 @ Quinnipiac 11/29

I can't lower myself to complaining about officiating against Quinnipiac. Is this where we are now? Losing to Quinnipiac and blaming the reffs? Then I come onto the board and there's already talk of MM calling out the players and maybe that is warranted... but wasn't this part of his issue at his la...

Re: Candidates for 2017 UMass HC vacancy

A lot of people commending Bamford on this hire. A lot of people surprised we were able to get him. Which means that if he's as good as everyone says he is, he won't be here long. So most definitely enjoy the ride for the next few seasons. http://www.chicagonow.com/all-shapes-sizes/files/2016/11/de...

Re: Game 14, 2016-17: St. Bonaventure (12/30)

The one good thing that DK has going for him this year is enough depth so that if someone is not doing well he has options to replace that player at least for a short time and have him or an assistant talk to him. I can't remember when any of our coaches have been able to go 11 deep in any game. I ...

Re: Game 14, 2016-17: St. Bonaventure (12/30)

Vegas has UMass as -1.5 at home v the Bonnies tomorrow.

BIG opportunity here. Honestly I think we match up well with this team. I'm looking forward to it.

Re: Game (TBD), 2016-17: at Georgia State

Georgia State is -3.5 against us tomorrow- definitely a winnable game. I also read they're #67 in the RPI. This would be a nice win to toss on the resume to wrap up the OOC.
