Re: 2018 Recruiting needs and potential recruits

We lost a recruit to Northern Colorado? Doesn't bode well? We didn't lose Jokuch to Northern Colorado, just like we didn't lose Zdor to Weber State. They aren't going to fill that scholarship just for the sake of filling it. They evaluate these guys and decide if they are A10 players, UMass players...

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

Quick note on West: As long as he is a scholarship athlete at UMass, he is on a football scholarship. Football trumps basketball in the NCAA's scholarship hierarchy, so he isn't a candidate to get the current open hoop scholarship. West's story last year was a great one, and he's a good kid, but wit...

Re: 2018-2019 Season

were the big recruits from last year(makar) brought in and were michelettos recruits pretty much? That is my understanding after talking with others that last years class was michelettos guys. so this year is greg's class? Billybuck's back, love it Last year was a lot of Carvel's guys with Makar mo...

Re: State of the Progam

The 939 is just football Other than, ya know, bad grades... any insight as to what might be causing it to be low? Transfers? Players leaving is the other main factor outside of grades themselves, yes. The rolling 4-year score is 939 but last year's specific score was 933. In the APR calculation a p...

Re: McGuirk Upgrade

I was told that there will NOT be any expansion of the current stadium. I asked why and was told that there is NOT enough support from students or the local community to justify expanding the stadium. Believe me, there are people in the AD discussing the same things we are on here about the need fo...

Re: McGuirk Upgrade

McKinney my man, before you twist yourself into a pretzel and end up down the rabbit hole, remember that the 35K was/is the end game and the 25K would be an intermediate step in getting there. If you look at the mock-up from the expansion study as you put it, you'll see that the East stand is still ...

Re: 2018-2019 Season

There is a glut of defensemen right now. Someone will be transferring from the back end. As of right now, UMass has: Makar / Ferraro / M. Del Gaizo / Chukarov / Vegara / Felix / Farmer / McLaughlin / Couturier / Torpstrom / (and possibly Cassaro, though he could be delayed a year). Teams hardly eve...

^ If he didn't leave us as a senior I'm sure he would have left us as a transfer, seems to be the MO.

Re: What happened to McCutcheon?

^ ooooooh yeah. Good catch! Also, both McCutcheon and Brown were hired in February of 2004 by UMass. It's always been a bit of a point of contention just how much McCutcheon actually had to do with hiring Brown; Brown was really UMass' guy before they announced the hiring of McCutcheon as AD. If Mc...

Re: What happened to McCutcheon?

Why were McCutcheon's first few years so good (2007 FCS Title Game, 2007 NCAA Hockey Tournament, 2008 MBB NIT Finals) and his last few years... not so great? How would you critique his hiring, firing, and overall performance? How would you compare his performance to Frank McInerney, Bob Marcum, Ian...

Re: Game 10: 3/31 @ Drexel @ 1PM

I don't think we should overlook the time, effort, and dedication it takes a guy like econ to be that miserable over such a long period of time. I mean it's like a Ripken-esque streak of wretchedness. Top notch guy, truly top notch... :roll: :roll: This team is 6-4 (which btw is already better than ...
