^ I'm pretty sure that's what he wants to do...just win, baby. He just wants to do it with a little flair! ;-)

Tony has done so much to get this program back.
Bringing in solid talent and good ‘culture’ players.
Tre Mitchell, TJ Weeks, Preston Santos, and Walker.
I haven’t been this optimistic about the program in years.
Agreed on all accounts, and I hope Bamford gives Tony every opportunity to return UMass to "regional dominance and national prominence."

I think Tony's defensive game plan on Saturday was terrible.

Excuse me IV this is the Tony Bergeron felatio thread. Please keep all negative comments in the McCall or season specific threads. Thank you. :roll: :roll:

I'll bring over my comment from the Davidson game thread. Nothing's changed in the last 15 minutes.
I love Tony for what he brings, but I have a concern about anointing him the next head coach. He has no college coaching experience and much of what worked for him in high school/prep school doesn't work against D1 athletes. If he is truly running the defense, and we don't really know that, I hope he is learning and will make the proper adjustments.

Maybe it's just me, but does anyone see a little bit of young Cal in Tony personality-wise? He's brash, cocky, a good recruiter, and he won't back down from anybody. He just has that in your face mentality and the connection with the recruits that says "We're here and we're gonna beat your ass". I've noticed it all year, starting with the preseason podcasts and interviews he did, and it was on full display last night vs URI.

Yeah, I was musing along those lines, thinking, maybe he's not cut out to be an assistant.

I made that post before reading everything else regarding the scuffle and the rumors about Toppin. I don't know what's true and what isn't, but I thought what happened last night was hardly a big deal. I don't know if Tony is a good guy or not, just that he brings an edge, and like OffSeason said in another thread, something we haven't had in a while.

I understand that he and Cal are friends.

Wow. TB has a lot of people fooled here. CT Flyer describes what a lot of people think and know about TB in this Dayton thread:
