Bad News

Post by LouMass » Tue Apr 08, 2003 11:31 am

Unless you look forward to beating the potential #1 team next year. Dickie V and Digger both have the sled dogs in their top 2 for next year.

Unfortunately ...

That's assuming, of course, that Okafor and Gordon stay in school another year. Gordon probably will stay. Okafor's an academic All-American, but if he's a Top 10 pick, he might very well bolt.

:shock: Gordon and Okafor are both coming back. Okafor is a Top 10 pick right now but he wants his degree and he is graduating next year. Gordon is not ready yet and is not even considering leaving now. They'll be loaded next year.

That's okay, it'll make it that much sweeter when we win the next U-Game 8)

The only zoo-con basketball player that I care to talk about is Diana Taurasi! Man, she's good!!

Other than that...what's this thread doing in the UMass men's hoop forum?

We took UConn to school last year in the first half and I don't believe that Lasme was starting. We've played them tough every year since the series restarted after Cal left and this upcoming year should be no exception. We are due for a win/upset against them and this season should do it.

Sue Bird vs. Diana Taurasi

Post by philosopher » Wed Apr 09, 2003 4:55 pm

Bird was better, and cuter. Other than second, who gives a rip?

Nostalgia?

Post by philosopher » Fri Apr 11, 2003 3:04 pm

How can it be bad news when the schedule lines up with top rated teams in the opponents section? Wasn't that the cornerstone of Calipari's regime? He believed that if the Minutemen played the best (the old anyone, anywhere, anytime theme), our guys would become better, be seen on regional and national TV, and the school would get better promotion thus making recruiting easier. Let's see some more of the ranked teams on our schedule. At the very worst, it improves our RPI.
