I have to believe we have turned the corner. Since TB has come aboard we have signed three new recruits; Mitchell, Weeks, and East.
Are we going to win the A10 next year, probably not, but it seems like we have good young men who want to play for UMass! The quality of play should improve with new coaches who hopefully teach fundamentals, hard work, and a commitment to excellence.
Put me in the glass half full category.

Me three.

To me, how they play will mean as much, if not more, than their w-l record. I’ll be especially pleased if their play improves as the season progresses. 8)

I'll see your "how they play" and raise you I'm sick and tired of the mediocrity and/or losing seasons.

I’m all in on the Kick Ass UMass sentiment!

How much they win next year will depend on how they play!

Improvement as the season progresses is not something we’re used to.

If that happens we’ll see more Ws than we’re used to as well.

I mean how many foam fingers does a guy need. :wink:

2019-20 will be my 33rd consecutive season; 34th overall including '70-'71 to avoid waiting in line to see Julius play.

I assume that's going to be a sobering read for some.
