Re: Bob Marcum

RIP to Bob, definitely a UMass legend. Also just shows again that John Calipari is a good person and loyal to the core.

Re: Around the A10, 2023-2024

22nd overall pick. Bravo! Nuggets even traded up from 28 to 22 to grab him and gave up 3 2nd rounders. Don't worry we got Steve to remind us that the 50th overall pick was from the MAC though. Am I the only one alarmed that some of you guys are celebrating brutal injuries on young kids in this thre...

Re: Around the A10, 2023-2024

Probably the best spot to post this. Dayton just got worse: Jon Rothstein @JonRothstein 2h Dayton's DaRon Holmes II is staying in the 2024 NBA Draft, per his IG page. 22nd overall pick. Bravo! Nuggets even traded up from 28 to 22 to grab him and gave up 3 2nd rounders. Don't worry we got Steve to r...

Re: KAEO: Tyler Bergantino

Absolutely, I don't think anyone is dismissing him. Just the best known alum was a bit over the top. He was a good example of a student athlete who represented UMass well. I don't think there's much negative to say about him from anyone here and we all wish him well I mean at the moment he probably...

Re: 2024-25 Season

Dayton is the only program currently that is strong enough to receive an at-large bid. They did not win the A10 tourney and they got it. We finished 4th in the A10 and did not even get an NIT bid. Yes, it's realistic if everything goes right and you do not win the A10 championship, An NCAA bid is p...

Re: 2024-25 Season

The thought of UMass going to a P6 is laughable at this point (or at any point in the last 15 years). NO conference is begging for the worst football program in the country with a basketball program that has won NOTHING in the same time frame. Yes, uCON will blow right past us because their hoops p...

Re: 2024-25 Season

I think the lack of NCAA tourney bids we’ve gotten while members of the Atlantic 10 says more about our program than it does the conference. My fear with the move to the MAC, is that it doesn’t matter how good of a program we are, unless we win that conference tournament, we aren’t going to the NCA...

Re: Around the A10, 2024-2025

In the non P5 basketball conferences, I’d say conference affiliation has less and impact each year in this NIL era. It’s all about the quality of the coach and how much the affiliated Collective can fork over in NIL money.

Re: 2024-25 Season

You guys are waxing about a time when the NIT was semi relevant and the final four teams played at MSG. It does not matter anymore, they're shuffling sites now. I don't care about NIT appearances and I think we finally have a shot at competing for conference titles again moving into the MAC which t...

Yeah, the A-10 schedule has really helped us get ...

Re: Dan Hurley to the Lakers?

Bit surprised that nobody posted this yet. It was reported by channel 7 in Boston that Hurley received a 6 year, $50M contract extension. Might now be the highest paid college coach, at least for Hoops. Made me wonder, can we use NIL to now fund our coaches salaries. If so, maybe that should be a p...

Re: KAEO: Sean East

Noah was good here, but I think Sean had more potential. And as minutefan said, Noah kind of quit on the team. Not a good look That is not true at all. The coaching staff mismanaged an injury that lingered but he always played hard when he was on the court and was an emotional leader when he was in...
