Re: KAEO Tafara Gapare

Sage, on one of his Spaces tonight, mentioned that he also noticed the lack of Gapare in the recent practice pictures. We're at September 29 now. That's not a good sign if he's going to be eligible this semester. With his reclassification in August, and being an international player, maybe he's havi...

Re: Coach Frank Martin

Frank sat down with A10 Vault https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yc-fcullfiY The guy who runs the Vault is a good dude, but this drew some ire that he got him, and several other, some obscure, outlets got time with Frank before our boy CurryHicksSage did. Rest assured, a deep dive with Sage is indeed i...

Re: 2023 Recruiting

First time poster here (long time observer), do we know for sure he is getting a scholarship? Could we be a PWO? He's been "offered", and I don't think you "offer" anything but a scholarship. We're also chock full of walk-ons already, with Jackson Cronin (who was reportedly tagg...

Re: How 'bout another alumni game?

^
It feels like the department has better marketing and organization now, more than ever, but you never know until you see it.

Would be fun to have an alumni game, but logistically it'd be challenging to execute, so you have to ask if the juice is worth the squeeze.

Good find
I don't see that either UM or AIC has mentioned it yet, but it is on UM's schedule. Did you hear about it somewhere or just happen to see it on the sched?

I welcomed in a couple new people over the weekend, but forgot to close the door. 18 new spammers tried to make their way in. Just validates that the door needs to be kept closed. Want in?

Re: Coach Frank Martin

Have y'all been following Frank on Twitter? The good: he's very engaged. The bad: he's very engaged. The former: so far he has been great with the UMassTwitter community. Recent example: he accepted a Twitter offer to meet up with some students at Antonio's. https://twitter.com/coachFMartin/status/1...
