Pretty good Eldon!
If they win at Richmond I’ll be ecstatic

Pretty good? I can't do better than 11-0!!!!!


The two predictions left that I have the most doubt about are SLU at home and at Richmond.... I think I have the rest nailed.

Re: Derek Kellogg - LIU Brooklyn

I can't even believe this conversation. Look at the level of competition that Camby class played against, and how they did . If we could land another Dana Dingle, Donta Bright, or Lou Roe this team with these young guys will make a big mark on the program, and could go down as one of those best cla...

Re: Derek Kellogg - LIU Brooklyn

Oh I harbor no ill-will toward the man... However, I can't say the same for him and his family toward the University. Time heals all wounds so hopefully it will be better down the road but my guess is it's too soon now. If you can't see (and appreciate) that you were basically gifted roughly $6.0M ...

Re: Game 24, 2019-20: George Mason (2/9)

Why are we discussing hanging CP's number? I am all for recognizing Umass All Timers - but does Carl really count in that group? There are a bunch of players who have had better careers not hanging in the Bill? I must be missing something? Just off the top of my head: Harris Mack McCoy Lowe Padilla ...

Re: KAEO: Carl Pierre

I have always wondered about that? I love the scene in Hoosiers when he measure's everything and to the surprise of them all - everything was the same height and distance.... Go figure....


Clearly it is an emotional difference - I wish they could get past that.

Re: Tony Bergeron

Been watching this situation play out and as a former player thought I’d give my 2 cents. UMass Basketball and UMass in general has always been looked down upon by the rest of the state and all the private and elite academic institutions in NE. To them we are that place out in Amherst and when we h...

I do not recall even a whisper of MM almost getting canned in the last month - WTF is this guy talking about?

Re: Game 22, 2019-20: at Davidson (2/1)

Eldon, it is funny that your hate for DK was so strong, you have painted yourself into the smallest of corners. Many of your reasons to support one coach over the other are hypocritical at best. You keep saying DK should have been fired after year 3 because he was terrible, where has MM been any be...

Re: Game 22, 2019-20: at Davidson (2/1)

Juice, GP. It’s not like nobody has cracked the Davidson but this year..... they have 10 losses. I attribute yesterday to umass being overwhelmed by a team who executed their game plan to a t. And shot the ball outside of their arses. McCall did the right thing switching to that zone as they could ...

Re: Tony Bergeron

For me Eldon, In the last 2 games I have seen a player, Preston Santos, show real promise. He has shown good decision making and strong rebounding. In the last game Walker showed himself to be a force that we were all hoping for. Perhaps I am making a lot over something that may not be there, but i...

Re: Tony Bergeron

JoLeon I am not going to get into a war of words with you today. I really like what Bergeron has brought to the program and give credit to McCall for hiring him. That was the premise of my original post. I do not think McCall is a good head coach. My opinion - and everyone is entitled to their own ...

Re: Tony Bergeron

It's not like TB is the first AAU/Prep coach ever to be hired for recruiting connections. It's a smart move.. after all it's about talent on the floor.. DK made it to the NCAA not because hes a fantastic college coach, he made it because he had superior talent on the floor. HS/Prep coaches are elev...

Damn that “bad coach and poor hire” for recognizing and hiring himself a good assistant.
He didn't make those choices...... MM makes terrible decisions... remember? :twisted:
