After last week, I'm not surprised.

If I recall correct no one posted anything after Kelsey was hired either. But you def heard from them after he left. If they follow the same pattern as last week McCall would have meet the team and had dinner with them last night.
You recall incorrectly. Holloway at the very least posted after meeting he who shall not be named, "OK- Let's EAT then", ie, let's go out and do this.

I don't hate the hire at all. It's solid. Not in love yet but hopefully I will be. I'm really watching closely how he'll assemble the staff. That's going to be absolutely critical.

Couple of tweets today, but basically impossible to know whether they relate to the new coach. I would think no:

Jarreau -- Barely trust ninjas around me the snakes be camouflage!

Gresham -- Train yourself how to think instead of what to think.

Well to be fair Halloway saying "lets eat then" can be interpretered a number of different ways.

Could, but he did it with that "eyes" emoji and it was after the announcement. Either way, I thought there were more but apparently was wrong. My bad about that.

Hope the guys are fine as this is their life. You can interpret those tweets as just fine, cautious.

UMass Basketball just tweeted a link to an introductory interview with coach McCall. He handles himself well in the interview, and comes across as very genuine, which is more than I can say for "I love you like my sons" Kelsey.

Northern FL is very much a part of the South. In every way.

Oh yes it is. North FL is very redneck. Hence them going absolutely crazy over the Daytona 500 every year. :lol:

Im not even that old and I don't understand 80% of the social media language/lingo being used these days.
