Re: Game 6, 2020-21: La Salle (1/9)

Good win, but I am not going to get too excited about it - LaSalle sucks. The thing that was good about it is that they beat a team they should have beaten, and did it convincingly instead of playing down to them. This team needs to win against equal competition, or teams that are playing them equal...

Re: Game 6, 2020-21: La Salle (1/9)

Point 1 - Umass beat Northeastern pretty handily
Point 2 - Umass lost in the rematch, no adjustments

Point 3 - Umass beat Lasalle already pretty handily
Point 4 - See point 2

Umass 74 - LaSalle 78


And If I am right on this - MM and Bergeron have to go, like now!

Re: 2020-21 Season

More scheduling news: Bill Koch @BillKoch25 #URI announces its Feb. 27 game at UMass has been moved up to next Wednesday. Change made to 'offer schedule flexibility later in the season.' #Rams were set to be off between Saturday at VCU and Jan. 16 vs. George Mason. Now they'll have a bye between Fe...

If we lose this one, maybe the bar for "teams we should be beating" set too high.... Just sayin'

Re: Game 6, 2020-21: at George Washington (1/6)

There are always shades of gray, but a loss here is not going to sit well with me - and I still consider myself supportive of MM.

Re: Who would you hire as HC for 2021-22

Who we want and who we can have are probably two very different looking lists. I like Becker too but he has been there for 40 years (it seems). If he really had aspirations for any other job, I am sure he would have already moved. I am not going to produce a list at this point, but I will say that I...

Andy Toole has been "on the list" since DK was given his extension..... I like him years ago but he has been basically treading water for 10 years.

Re: Game 5, 2020-21: George Mason (12/30)

McCall needs to go he’s had 101 games to show what he can do and has won 40...40 of 101. He’s tried to win by bringing transfers in, that failed. He’s tried to win by establishing a pipeline with a top tier prep powerhouse and its failed. He’s not a head coach, even at Chattanooga his team got wors...

Re: Is MM a winner?

Rayers and Joleon - nice posts... I am still backing MM, I am cautiously optimistic meaning I still have some doubts. What I do believe is that this roster is much better than any (top to bottom) since Ford (Lasme teams). one or two DK teams had comparable talent, but they were misfits in terms of p...

Re: Game 4, 2020-21: Bryant (12/21)

If we go sub-.500 in A10 play are you willing to risk wasting another year of Tre with MM at the helm? There is no way to honestly and objectively answer that question right now. You’re right. I think my broader point in posing the question was, for a majority of us, MM is getting close to the end ...

Re: Game 4, 2020-21: Bryant (12/21)

I will say it again. Switch to a zone defense as our man to man is terrible and our press is pitiful. You continue to flex your idiot muscles..... Bryant would have won by 20+ last night if Umass just played zone defense. In simplest terms a man to man defense does not mean "one on one" d...
