Re: 2023-2024 Reasonable expectations

slow start with this OOC schedule? we knew to get fat early - I expect to be 7-0 going into West Virginia - maybe one blip but anything less than 6-1 will be dissapointing 7-0 :shock: It's also fairly conceivable we open 7-0 and still aren't very good. You really won't face a clear top 150 team unt...

Re: 2023-2024 Reasonable expectations

20-10 or 10-20. Hard to say which. Culture and fit are everything. Schedule is favorable so if they get hot early they could shock people. If they stumble out of the gate I think it's gonna be a long year. The talent is there, but it will hinge on how long it takes Cohen and Curry to get acclimated ...

Re: Dennis Jackson

One of the greatest people ever. Such a tragic loss. Ran legendary youth hoops programs for the three decades after that staff was let go and impacted thousands of kids in the area.

Re: Coach Frank Martin

Just watched the latest Just Being Frank, and enjoyed it much. I think I'm coming around on the lovable lunatic. You can see that he cares about his players. Will set aside concerns about his methods for now, and hope the team can have success, and stay to grow significantly. I don't care about Per...

Re: Coach Frank Martin

I think this podcast has been an attempt by Frank at getting UMass fan to know Frank the person a bit better. I'm not sure that's landing how he had hoped. I think you're right and I also think it raises an interesting question about the manner in which fans "get to know" a coach. The tru...

Re: Coach Frank Martin

^^^^ Spot on. I've got zero problems with his sideline demeanor when he's screaming and yelling, I actually like it. It was his lack of accountability toward the end of the season and his griping that the fans were being too negative that irked me. Bingo. And anyone who is trying to turn this into ...

Re: 2023 Recruiting

Did we offer Dingle? If he want's to be here, we would make room. Actually, the A10 would be a great choice for a kid like him. He'd crush it here and level up the average competition he's playing against without worrying about a potential drop off in numbers. With all due respect, this is almost c...

Re: State/Future of the Program

For the first time I am not donating but giving my money to the Collective. Why should we pay for a free country club membership for Martin and Bamford. Screw that, I want my money to go to the players directly and better their young lives and hopefully the programs. My thoughts exactly. I was maki...

Re: Return of Derek Kellogg

Creighton is like the anti-UMass -- the luckiest, or 2nd luckiest, college basketball program around. Dana Altman, who's from Nebraska, stayed there forever. Then Greg McDermott, who was about to get run out of his HM job in Ames, IA, took over. In his 4th year there, Creighton somehow lands in the...

Re: State/Future of the Program

I'm far less concerned about who we've lost than about the fact that we haven't yet gained anyone in return. This is how it's going to be for the foreseeable future so if you can't continually bring in new talent and win basketball games you're in trouble as a coach. Frank doesn't have to like it bu...

Re: 2023 Recruiting

Stat: Miami Men’s Basketball players are receiving a total of $2.2 Million in NIL payments among all players in the program combined. This includes an $800k deal for transfer guard Nijel Pack. The move has proven to pay off as Miami is on its way to its first Final 4 in school history. This is why ...

Re: Jordan, essentially zero unless you have a quarter million bucks. He's one of the best players in the country and will have his pick at pretty much any school in America.

Re: Game 25, 2022-23: at La Salle (2/11)

The Brandon criticism is OVERWHELMINGLY MILD and directed at Frank. And if you think pointing out that the coach's son is, statistically speaking, one of the least productive players in ALL OF COLLEGE BASKETBALL, I'm not sure what to tell you. Pointing that out is not crossing a line.

Juice, he doesn't have to deal with any of that here? Imagine you take a new job and your son is also with you. And everyday you listen to people shit on the kid, endlessly. You stick up for him and give it back, or say nothing? He's taking the shit to keep it off the players And yeah, he's a grown...
