Re: Pat Kelsey

This guy is a joke. No grown man with any sense does something like this – a half hour before his press conference? After meeting the team and posting all that bullshit? I don’t care if it’s his wife, below freezing March weather, or greener pastures – unless you’re incompetent, a child, or a total...

Re: Pat Kelsey

If I were a previous candidate, I wouldn't pick up the phone if they called tomorrow. I think it absolutely affects the search.

Re: Appeal for Mike- re Hosting of this site

Update... I think I've found a new provider that might work out for what we need. My plan is to migrate over a week or two after we hire a new coach and the related discussion starts to die down. Summer would be a slower time indeed, but I've been leeching off JJ's good graces for far too long. (An...

Derek, you've been a class act and this is bittersweet. Best wishes and good health to you. You're a good man.

This is a weird take. John is lightning in a bottle and not just anyone can be groomed to be a coach. Works for some, but not most.

Re: Candidates for future UMass HC vacancy

What are you guys thinking about the current I hope Luwane hasn't overvalued the value of a 5-8 shooter, who after not playing for a year and having time to work exclusively on his shooting, managed to shoot under 40% in his first year. Kids are kids and emotions are raw. Don't shit on our guys, du...

Re: Fire DK? (End of 2016-17 poll)

I hope they try to retain Chatman, I feel like he will add to the possibility of keeping players and is a solid recruiter. However I trust whatever the new coach wants to do. I doubt they will keep anyone, unsure if it is normal but it seems that the norm is clean house. No way. Retaining any of th...

No. Cut the Cal umbilical cord.

Man, I really love these kids, but Neubauer coached circles around Derek. Jesus, he is bad.

Re: KAEO DeJon Jarreau (2016)

I hope the players don't read this board because they are doing well and I'd hate to see some of these young kids get discouraged by us. Shit, I only made one free throw when I did the halftime shooting competition. And I got a t-shirt and applaus. :lol: lol I highly doubt the players, coaches, or ...

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

also where is lou roe? Lou usually visits family around this time of the year. He's not allowed to coach, so I think it's cool. Derek is what he is. Any coach we run into who has previously coached against him is going to have the advantage. DK does a good job recruiting and respectfully running th...

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

How is the weather supposed to be Friday morning in Western Mass? Making the drive out from the North Shore. Great question. Storm allegedly starts here tomorrow between 11AM and noon. Most recent model shows 8-10 inches. Should end after midnight Fri. Probably plenty of time for plows and sanders ...

I love this team, I really do, all the players. But hearing these quotes is unbelievable. If they've earned the time and we come out cold as we did last night, frigging put them in. I agree with vanmeter, guys earning time that sit will leave Can we sub out DK for Shyrone when he says stuff like th...

Re: Appeal for Mike- re Hosting of this site

Good stuff, Harbo. She was in pretty serious shape a while back. Actually had nerves in her head resected rather than live with the pain.
