Re: New UMass coach Matt McCall

What an odd turn. Lesson of the day: never assume people can recall post history or prior absurdities. Ha - you keep being you bud :lol: :lol: :lol: My friends, sister's, uncle, has a friend who said his brother knew the guy who was told that DK was going to coma back to Umas if MM left. :lol: :lol...

Re: Pitino extortion case

So many great games. I think tip off vs Arkansas was favorite. I didn’t miss a home game from fall of 1991-spring if 1995. Went to everyone. That was a great game as well.... The NC game in the Preseason NIT was awesome as well, but I saw that one in a bar not in person. I was at the Centrum for th...

Re: A10 Tournament

What do you mean by good enough? What an odd reaction. I'm not sure why you're quoting my post twice like that in back to back posts. Like I needed evidence or something, or that I was disputing your post, which I wasn't. I was just bringing some more information to the table. I said that it was an...

Re: 2019-20 season

I've been trying to check in on those guys from time to time, and I've got to be honest. I have completely forgotten about Baldwin when doing so. I really liked that kid. He had flashes of stardom, but he was wildly inconsistent. He reminded me of Ajmal Basit without the ego. Baldwin was not egoles...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

All this brings back memories of the "good old days" when we would know very little about the new guys, and then attend a Steve Lappas pre-season open scrimmage, and within twenty minutes be saying to each other "Oh, my Lord, this is going to be a long year!" and heading for a watering hole. Yea - ...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

If all the current players on the roster like each other and are satisfied with playing time, I want THAT exact roster back. We have enough good pieces in place (and signed) that a year of experience will take us to next level. If there are players that wish to leave for whatever reason, I’d be hap...

I would be stunned if it is that low... Closer to 10, I will settle on URI +8.
Yes 8 or 9 point dogs sounds about right. Maybe I should plan to lose another fitty like I did on the VCU game!

Re: A new idea from the great one.

This guy - Stevemaz - has a similar over-inflated view of himself and his ideas as a poster from many years back (Pre-DK I think).

Anybody remember who that was?

Re: KAEO LuWane Pipkins (PG-2015)

^ Hopefully not for long. The reason they continue to schedule URI every year is that it is a) a natural rival that sells out both buildings each year and b) it is either a good win or not a bad loss. If UMass rises to where most of us hope they are going we can cover both A&B (although we will nev...

Re: 2019-20 season

It also seems that “100% done” has more flexibility than the statement of CJ being a D3, at best, player. Really???? 100% anything is a pretty absolute statement there hoss.... My assessment of CJ was purely my own opinion which leaves lots and lots of room for flexibility. I even upgraded him to a...

Re: 2019-20 season

Not for nothing, but a mere 6 weeks ago - there were a lot of pitch forks appearing. Open discussions of Bergeron taking over (with many supporting and endorsing that fantasy move).... "McCall sucks", "McCall is clueless", we will be lucky to come in 14th... etc.... There were a few however who neve...
