Re: 2022 Recruiting

Coach Ryan Partridge could be a major game changer for us going forward. He has a great rep in California and there are many more talented high school football players than D1 schools out here. Many talented and under recruited players don’t mind going east for a D1 opportunity especially at a top 2...

Re: 2022 Recruiting

Vandy is a really good academic school. Could have been effort in the classroom. Hope it works out for everyone.

That sound you heard was an egg falling from McCall’s scivvies.

Re: Game 8, 2021-22: Rutgers (11/27)

We have to stop dribble penetration and we haven’t so far this year. Teams are getting deep in the lane for easy looks, dump offs or kick outs. We suck at defending 3’s because we don’t stop the dribble penetration and the result is guys are dropping too late or not cutting off passing lanes. That o...

Re: Confidence in McCall

0.000 He came in as an inexperienced head coach and proceeded to stick to only what he knew which was a spread pick and roll offense with live and die by the 3 mentality. He should have learned about the value and execution of a tight D, the value of positioning and teaching angles in rebounding and...

Re: New UMass Football Coach 2021

You think maybe Bamford is figuring out that he needs to hire coaches with eastern roots who know the east and even better know New England? We are a quirky bunch but we know and love our sports and we are unapologetically regional Yankees. Which also means we are happy winning ugly or even losing a...

Re: Game 7, 2021-2022: 11/24/2021 UMass Lowell

Just wondering if Coach Brown has some extra time to counsel McCall about aggression and defensive execution are all about? Yeah that’s low but it is spillover frustration which is overflowing!

Re: New UMass Football Coach 2021

Totally thrilled about Don Brown coming home! I have no doubt we will be tough, organized, and aggressive with some very talented players. He will get us back to respectability and hopefully groom our eventual next head coach. Check out this link. Great stuff from DB https://www.hudl.com/blog/blitz2...

Re: Game 2, 2021-22: at Yale (11/12)

McCall should face a recall. I just can’t say enough about how the team plays without any apparent strategies except anyone can shoot the ball anytime from anywhere. So ok, if that is the “strategy” then you have to make damn sure at least 3 guys MOVE to get offensive rebounds because you aren’t usu...

Re: New UMass Football Coach 2021

Eldon you obviously did not watch the Brown link. I am not suggesting he or anyone of his caliber or experience level would want or even consider the job at UMass. It is the approach that he takes in finding and utilizing players that I am trying to present as the point. I think it would be extremel...

Re: New UMass Football Coach 2021

This is a link to Don Brown discussing multiple coaching strategies. What I really love is his approach to finding recruits and getting them in the best situation to utilize individual strengths. This to me is THE most important consideration and strategy in coaching at any amateur level, with possi...
