I was worried with the Pitt tweet and then the article. TB must be pissed. It hurts less because of Garcia
I think we’re going to be very happy with Garcia

Mike Traini tweeted some minutes ago he's still confident in his prediction.

I'm not holding my breath.

For what I had heard most recently I was, but OFFseason's post here came after I was asked. To his credit he is not a glory hound and is often correct in his assessments. If he has heard differently that would certainly be something worth considering and listening to.

I've heard from people in PA they think it's UMass, people up here think it's Pitt, it's never easy to pin it down. OFFseason is a good source for information though, he's proven that, so it could be time to reassess my pick if he has heard Odukale is out on UMass.

Breaking news, sort of, on you know who. From a Pittsburgh news outlet:

His tweet IMO is great news for Umass!

I know nothing more than I have said in the past but my gut is this is good news for Umass

^ ^^ I think you two are misinterpreting his tweet. The Pittsburgh article said that UMass was in the lead. If that's what Femi is disputing, it is NOT good news.

I think that he is telling everyone that all this attention is bullcrap. Leave him alone!

Agreed! He's just what we need. Him, Cairo, and Dyondre !

However, I do hope theOFFSeason is wrong, and UMass pulls a rabbit out of its hat.

Man, what a kick to the grapes
With him and Garcia coming in, we would have had a sweet backcourt combo for a few years.

Oh well, just gotta move on and get that big guy to replace Djery

Seems like we'll know by midweek according to the latest above.
Unfortunately, I can tell you now...he’s not coming
Fuck, but thank you for sharing.

UMass has reached out to Goodine, and Noah Fernandes.

I’m excited for this Femi dude to decide so everyone can stop creaming over him. If he comes to UMass I will welcome him, if he goes to Pitt he is the enemy. Simple. I look forward to watching whoever puts on the Minutemen jersey next season and will have zero interest in a one time target.

You have been spot on with your predictions so I'm wondering if you have been told this by whoever feeds you info? If you are basing your opinion on this article, it seems to favor him choosing Umass.

For once I hoe you're wrong! :P
