Re: NOLA DUO GONE!!!!!

I think we all knew years ago he was never going to make the NBA. I hope he is on track for his degree. Personally, I don't know if he will or won't. I didn't know if Lasme or Cady would or wouldn't. They did. I didn't know if Monty or Freeman would or wouldn't. They didn't. We shall see either way...

Jarreau testing the NBA waters - declared for the draft but did not sign with an agent. Jon Rothstein @JonRothstein 21h DeJon Jarreau tells me that he is returning to Houston next season and will withdraw from the 2020 NBA Draft. A wise decision by Deeky. There are only 2 rounds in the NBA draft. I...

Re: 2020 Season

It’s either going to be in the spring with fans, spring without fans (God I hope not), or the fall without fans. UMass and other schools should just admit the obvious and make an announcement; someone has to be the first. My gut says you’ll start seeing announcements after the Ivy League makes thei...

Re: 2020 Season

I am strangely optimistic about this coming season - assuming there is a season. I have almost no reason to be with the exception that I don't think it can possibly be worse than last year. All i know it that I am not a Brito fan at all.... If he is the starting QB, I may have to rescind the above o...

Re: 2020-21 Season

^ Don’t rule out in those games that we might struggle tre playing the 4 with gasperini at the 5 Why is that? Tre is as comfortable from the 3 area as he is in the box. That makes Tre much harder to guard. If he is dragging the opposing 4 away from the basket to defend him, he will eat them alive. ...

Looks like he has speed.

Does he have long arms? How's his motor?

I suspect at 6'10" that his motor is pretty high.
I'd say more like his "ceiling" is pretty high. :lol:
And I see what you did there too :lol: :lol: :lol:

Jai Smith (@jai_smith131) a 6' 10" forward from St. Thomas More (CT) has received an offer from UMass.
Just reclassed from 2022 to 2021.

Cool - any word on his motor?

I am not sure I can get on board with any recruit if he doesn't have a high motor?

I am also a Yankee fan and A-Rod is possibly my most dis-liked Yankee of all time.

Worst signing in the last 30 years.....

^^^ Hurst and Clemens were a deadly 1 and 2 back in the 80s. Back when I was a little tike and before Roger became a hateable dink. Haven't you yet realized that they ARE ALL hateable dinks?

Re: Pat Kelsey

Someone please share what happened with Kelsey! Kelsey got to campus and realized he couldn't deal with an inconsistent color scheme across all athletic uniforms and university sweatshirts on a year to year basis. Had to back down. So it wasn’t the increasing insertion of “Amherst” on University of...

Re: The rise of the UMass football program...

Unless we NEED a conference right now (which I trust the administration has a pulse on), I think we're best riding this out and hoping that there are larger forces at play that encourage conferences back towards regional/peer alignment. Ultimately that would be the best case scenario for the NCAA i...
