So, who is number four? Bruiser at 54.4% or DK at 53.1% :twisted: :twisted:

In terms of coaching (relating that to success on the court), I'd go with Cal, Leaman, Ford, Zunic, Bru and then probably DK.

Seems like there was already a plan in place. I wonder what's the hold up on announcing the new assistant coaches?

BREAKING: Multiple credible sources have just confirmed to @WINYRadio that @WAPrepHoop Gold team head coach Tony Bergeron has unofficially come to an agreement with Umass to join their coaching staff on a multi-year deal.

With five true freshmen in this class they all could conceivably start as juniors or seniors.

Thomas - C
Mitchell - PF
Santos - SF
Weeks - SG
Buggs - PG

Will be really cool to watch this group develop together. A new UMass gab five.

I really hope MM can bring in a good PG to go along with the rest of the class.

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out over the next year and beyond. Firing your 3 assistants and bringing in a high school coach with 3 of his players is quite the gamble, but I think it's a necessary gamble at this point. I won't bring up the more personal aspect of this, because really it's none of our business and hopefully it has no (negative) impact on the team. Welcome aboard TB/Tre/and company. I hope it all works out.

Just to be clear though: In that scene I am playing myself. Jack is my wife. McCall is my mom with the fat ass. The lasagna is the UMass basketball team. My initial plan of spelling things out to Jack didn't seem to be working, so I thought maybe a little one act play would work.
Newsflash: you're an incredibly shitty playwright: Coach McCall is not your mommy, The UMass basketball team is not your mommy's repulsive lasagna, and most of all - Thank You Sweet Jesus - I am not your poor suffering wife.... that poor unlucky lady clearly has made some major mistakes in her life and is currently paying for those mistakes.....btw when she's had enough and needs a good divorce lawyer have her send me a pm .... :D
