Re: DeMichiel gone

While losing an assistant to be HC is one thing, this lateral move is a bit of a head-scratcher, as UMass is top tier now in hockey. Hopefully, it is 'just the bucks'. So many moving pieces in college hockey with early leaving to NHL, the transfer portal, add in COVID lurking around, talk about need...

Re: CAA expanding for lax?

CAA is AQ only for the most part. A10 has the potential for multiple, depending on how strong their OOC schedules turn out to be. The key questions are will A10 have more visibility on TV/streaming, and will UMass be able to build more natural and deeper rivalries in the longer term. If yes to both,...

Re: CAA expanding for lax?

A10 will be instantly highly competitive. Glad we remove the 1 one-off conference.

We'll see if it helps our reach south or not. I'd rather see us more consistently reach to CANADA, myself.

Re: NCAA tourney

Delaware is in the "elite eight" having just beaten Number 2 - Georgetown.

Very surprising but nice for "CAA".

Re: 2022-23 roster

Frank essentially was hired very late in the HS recruiting year. He should be more judged by Year 3, given all the vagaries of Transfer portals and such. Year 1 is a rebuild/relaunch for sure, IMO. Year 2, some settling in as to needs and time for recruiting. Year 3 is the determining/swing year on ...

Re: Women's Lax 2022

WLAX was one of the last 4 selected into the tourney, Princeton is hosting because Cuse had graduation ceremonies and the stadium was unavailable.

They are in the Top 20 rankings, at 20 in RPI. They should get in at large. The only blowout was to BC early.

I think he’s one of the few players where I can say that it’s not his talent but injuries that have brought his overall game down.

Re: 2022 CAA Tourney

Well, while UMass climbed out of a hole 1-3 start to this season, and did beat Brown, the team had a terrible road record at 2-5 (1 neutral) and was erratic in play, even quarter to quarter, as shown by the 0-6 third quarter yesterday. 6-1 at home was terrific, but that was 1/2 of the games played. ...
