Thanks MG and I on the info for fleing the tix. Good to know you can re-flex them.

Interesting to see the game listed as a pick'em. SC has to be better than Rutgers? We'e been a better home team than road in the McCall era. Would be a great W to get.

UMass is currently +1.5 and I don't see that line coming down any time soon. Would be a good win to get.

Can't get this channel without paying another $ 25 a month. So I will just watch the game cast on ESPN.

South Carolina assistant Chuck Martin was an assistant at UMass in 2000-2001.

Speaking of assistants, that’s quite the outfit Bergeron is wearing...shiny silver jacket with black lapels, black shirt and pants and glittery shoes.

South Carolina can't shoot. Why don't we go into a 2-3 zone???

Listening on the radio and it sounds like the press, once again, is a major dud. How about don't press all the time, but maybe consider using it as part of a multifaceted defensive strategy?

^Couldn’t agree more. The press is killing them.

^^ yes!! They need to mix it up.. pick up pressure at the half court to speed them up. The press is giving up free points and will lead to more losses than wins at this point.

McCall at halftime acknowledged that the press was bad, and Jay Burnham saying that they should have considered pulling back on the press a little bit. It should be obvious that it's not a great strategy right now. I'm hopeful that we'll see less of it in the 2nd half. Come on coach, make the adjustments.
