Re: Coach in 2025-26?

With this UMass to the MAC in all sports news, I would love to know what's going on in Frank's mind right now. He signed up for UMass in the Atlantic 10, not the MAC. Well, this is pretty much resolved. Frank signing for a 2-year extension seems this is settled, he's all in as UM moves to the MAC.

Re: Lightning in a Bottle documentary

Mike has a great collection of stories here too. https://www.umasshoops.com/games/1994-95/01271995.htm Thanks Chuff. That particular page is old.

Re: KAEO Shahid Muhammad

I reached out to @PageSouthern on Twitter . Seems like they'd have a good viewpoint from the fanbase. I asked what he thought about his defensive abilities but somewhat limited minutes & limited shots... He’s a guy that came to CSI very raw. From everything I’ve heard, the CSI coaches had a lot ...

KAEO Shahid Muhammad

Starting a thread for new guy Shahid Muhammad, with his commitment yesterday. He's been mentioned in the 2024 recruiting thread, but a dedicated thread is in order. Looks like he was near the end of the bench at Seton Hall, only logging 20 minutes across 10 games. https://www.sports-reference.com/cb...

Re: Dan Hurley to the Lakers?

It's a no brainer. Take on the challenge (and the money). Even if you fail, there will be a line of teams waiting for your with open arms (and wallets) back in the college game. I think it's this ^ When (not if) Hurley's style and NBA stars don't mesh, Lakers will buy him out, and he'll have a long...

I can kind of see your point, but I think it would start to stretch a little too far to create another forum. Maybe "Other UMass Sports Forum" or "General Discussion" can be close enough.

Re: future scheduling talk

In looking at Twitter, seems like this is new news...
UMass cancels ten future football games

4 with Army, though another 2 will remain on future slates
3 with Liberty (good riddance)
3 with Troy

Re: KAEO Mathok Majok

^ I hope he does OK there. The Summit League is fairly weak and ORU was 12-19 last year and tied for last in league play. They can use a big. I don't think he would have helped us much this year so it's a good move for him. ORU was doing well in the last few years prior to this one. They made the S...

Mathok into the Portal https://twitter.com/VerbalCommits/status/1783903350456721662 Maybe a step down will be better for him.

Re: UMass transfer portal news - 2024

To me its one of a few things: 1. People already gave towards basketball 2. People cannot afford to give to both the MC and directly to the AD 3. People are becoming apathic as it is going to be very hard to win at a high level in the future. I'm in Camp 2. I don't/can't donate a bunch of money, bu...
