Don't let a bruised ego get in the way of the facts. The guy is a good coach and while he looked like the kind of guy we wanted/needed it was not quite right. Put away the Holloway jokes and stop with the insults, you sound like a bunch of jilted spoiled brats.

Go over to the candidates thread and stay with constructive conversations, we need a new coach.

THIS.

The stuff about his family and invoking the names of guys on our team is bullshit. It's ok to be mad, but don't be a dickhead.

My sources indicate differently. Rhodes was never mentioned as a candidate and definitely not a finalist.
Your sources are incorrect
That is quite possible. But your information might be flawed as well. The hire of Kelsey, the Woj bomb on Shrewsberry and the reported interest in Dooley all fit with what I was told.

MS and JD were contacted in one way or another but Rhoades was zeroed in on and offered...he waited for Wade to move and the RB went Kelsey quickly, which is what he didn't make it to campus until Wednesday and why after he thought it over he felt it wasn't right.

To echo Eldonabe, I don't feel upset in the least and nothing about this is embarrassing, just move on and go get the right guy. Thanks

I didn't comment on here or twitter after the Kelsey hiring because although there is little doubt that he can build a winning program he had a reputation as a guy who can be a little slick, but so did Cal, so I just wanted to see how it played out. There is a lot that goes into what we want as a HC besides X's&O's and recruiting...the guy that fits the profile as having it all is Caputo. There are only so many stars and he is pretty close to a sure thing...thinking about him only being an assistant is foolish imo

PK’s flip-fop is a reflection on him, not UMass. As much as yesterday sucked for UMass fans everywhere, the fact is that a no-hire is better than a bad hire. If PK wasn’t 100% committed to the job than it would have been a bad hire.

Given the quality of school, the players on the team, the facilities and the conference, the opportunity that coaching UMass basketball represents is an outstanding one. There are candidates who will recognize this to be true and I’d like to think that fans will rally behind Bamford as he continues the search.

Both of your "sources" are wrong, you both sound ridiculous, and you both should stop.

Where were your "sources" the hour prior to the announcement of PK? No where, so stop pretending you have inside info when you do not.

^^^ +100000. Plus PK may have just paid DKs buyout. Go get a guy that wants to be here.

^ Couldn't agree with this more. Yesterday SUCKED, but it is far better that it happened now than PK bolting at the end of next season... because now we can say with confidence that's exactly what would have happened.

My sources are not connected with PK, so they had no idea it was coming.

All you guys just need to go and listen to Bamford's press conference yesterday. He DID SAY that there were several good prospects and he chose PK. I am sure that he will contact the search outfit and have them contact these people and see if any are still interested. There are always people that are looking to improve their position even if they are second choice. If so I would expect an announcement by sometime on Monday. Enough of this wild speculation of possibilities.

Niles, chill out. Now would be a great time to make a donation to Mike if you haven't previously. This bandwidth is not free and pissing contests just make the costs go up.
