I initially didn't vote on this, but now I've voted yes. We absolutely need to make sure these kids know we're behind them and want them to be part of the UMass family. They need to know that the fans and the community appreciate them. I'm still going to many many games next year. Not to watch a coach, but to support UMass and the players on the court.

Pretty much agree with them all. But I take it as comments about Fragile Pat, not more. They deserve a first class coach and just hope we announce one soon!

Well, that's too bad because UMass was loyal to a fault with DK.

Any day of the week will I take Camby for HC and Travieso and Padilla for assistants. Don't care about the experience with Kellogg. Camby being here would lock up so many star recruits. LOL
Looking forward to winning seasons again!

And by Thanksgiving you'd have a blog post saying they need to fire Camby.

Yeah, that's how I read it too. Unfortunately, the basketball team's biggest booster agreed with the sentiment expressed by Gresham.

John Kennedy had come around and supported the hiring of Kelsey. As he should, he now despises Kelsey.

@MattVautourDHG @DailyHampGaz Kelsey is a gutless punk. Hope he realized what he has done

I can't remember if Marcus finished up with his degree- did he?

Someone on the A10 board posted that Kelsey, who has a history of battling depression, experienced an episode brought on by the stress/pressure of taking the job. If that's the case, then I can understand him backing out and going back to a place where he is comfortable.
