Correction: Geoff really wanted Ed Nelson to come to UMASS and Bruiser was lukewarm about it. End of story.

I didn't read the above article when I saw who wrote it, but I can say this:

Hector Longo is the biggest dickhead ever. As UMASS fans, a lot of us have had a long-running feud with that guy. Probably dating back 3 or 4 years. He sucks.

Mike does have a donate link (though it's completely hidden and awfully tiny) on the front page. Clicking the link below will bring up the paypal screen where you can help him out.

Man, that is getting awfully old. I think I know who you are, and don't really want to offend your sensibilities, but a coach needs time to get his own players to succeed with his type of system. We said it with Bruiser, and now some of us are saying it with Lappas while some guys who used to say it...

Damnit- 8) That was me in the previous post. Beyond that, if Mike is listening, there ought to be a permissions link on his forum admin tab. From there he can select each forum and set the posting permissions for each page to 'reg'. That ought to require anyone wanting to post to sign in, and should...

Yeah, and hire some schlemeel from Northeastern? No thanks. If you can convince Matt Doherty to come up here, then you have a deal. If not, then what you have is a stupid idea.

If they want to run Lap out, then whatever- but they better have a hell of a lot better alternative out there than this cat from Northeastern. That'll be the end of my interest in UMASS basketball should they make a decision so stupid as to hire that dude.

Asslive-

I shouldn't even bother to respond, but someone called my attention to a post over at the kiddy pool asking if I support Lappas or some odd shit like that (because I supported Flint for most of his tenure here). YES, YES, and YES. Since you took the time to call me out and reference Mike's board spe...

Wesley Spears would have blown the "story" wide open with or without Marcus coming back, so I doubt we'd have anything but more NCAA sanctions.

And that 6'7" was pretty generous to start out with. Ol' TV Lou was actually closer to 6'5"- and he still kicked everyone else's ass!

That's the whole ridiculous "If he's tall and heavy, he must be good" argument. Preacher, I noticed that when you read DEM's "Skilled 6'9" comment, you somehow took that to mean "Athletic 6'9"". Those are two completely different things. Athletic doesn't mean squat...

Why do you think Pitt is such an upgrade from Memphis? The Big East? It's relative proximity to a major air hub?
