Re: Replacements for McCall

May I suggest the honorable, Bob Knight. All time record of 902–371 (.709). 3 NCAA championships. And he's probably a little too old to knock people around too much anymore, so he would be a kinder, gentler Bobby Knight. According to reports, he lost his fastball around 2015 and now is suffering fr...

Do he and DK share a giant tub of gel? Forgot where Smart played in college.

I did not think it is possible, but it looks emptier than the Saturday URI game. Dorms open on Sunday.

Re: Game 16, 2021-22: Rhode Island (1/15)

The crowd was really OLD for a college basketball game - the majority of attendees seemed to be at 55-75, undoubtedly hoping for days long gone. A few parents with grade-schoolers. maybe 100 of college-age, tops. The arena was as dead as I have ever seen. Even the 'dance team' seemed uninterested. ...

Re: Game 16, 2021-22: Rhode Island (1/15)

Quick search says he was extended through 2022. Here we are!!! 3 months and change. "Bamford’s original five-year deal took him from his hiring on April 27, 2015 to April 26, 2020. The extension goes until April 26, 2022." https://www.umass.edu/archivenewsoffice/article/ryan-bamford-earns-...

I do not see any grand conspiracy against UM or for BC, which is also in the doldrums in most M sports.

We are fully capable of shooting ourselves in the foot, using a repeating rifle.

Re: Game 16, 2021-22: Rhode Island (1/15)

^^^^^^ Excellent analysis. MM played URI's game without their height and lateral speed. Lots of missed layups. Not enough 3 pointer launching against a team where that was really the only path for competitiveness. We are bereft of a game underneath. Those Mitchell brothers are a force playing togeth...

Re: Game 16, 2021-2022: Rhode Island (01/15)

Thanks to Signman, I'll be there and am bringing a buddy. It is all about being good with 3's with this team, as they will throw them up regardless of shooting success, 15% or 48%. Looks like much of their scoring comes from the 2 Mitchells - at 6 foot nine and ten respectively. Could be a mismatch ...

Re: Game 15, 2021-22: at Davidson (1/11)

Our bigs are 3's and 4's, especially Buttrick. Steadman has practically no O game. Too many easy baskets with good passing and lots of cutting, as noted above.
