Re: 2024-25 Season

The players are going around Massachusetts doing community service events. Lots of pictures of them, but unless I missed it I haven't seen any of DHS, Malek Abdelgowad, or Amadou Doumbia. Might be nothing. I asked about it and was told everyone participated. I know Kevin Rodak has connections to th...

Re: 2025 Recruiting

With all of the roster movement in the last few weeks, future recruiting seems like it has been on the back burner. It has not. Here are the offers we made in May and June. A few are 2026, but I put them all in this post: May Dem Mohamed 6'10 C (2026) Kohl Rosario 6'5 SG (2025) Dwayne Wimbly 6'5 SG ...

Re: 2024 Recruiting

I don't think coach brought in Rivera to sit. I agree and I wonder if Jayden, who is the ultimate team player, would be OK with coming off the bench for 15 minutes at the 3, with Rivera getting 25 minutes. We have too many bigs, including DHS, for the 6'6 Rivera to play the 4. Jayden started every ...

Re: 2024 Recruiting

I also like Nate and Rivera, but I'm having a hard time figuring out how many minutes they will get. Rivera seems like a wing to me, but Jaylen had that spot last year and Frank loves Jaylen. Nate is a 2 or a 3, so where do his minutes come from? Sool starts at the 2, and we already have a logjam a...

Re: 2024 Recruiting

A friend of mine (STH) who follows UMBB, but not as closely as I do, asked me to name the 3 or 4 newcomers who will have the biggest impact this year. As I thought about it, it's a good question. Who of the 8 will get the most playing time? Who starts in the front court? All good questions. Here are...

Re: UMass transfer portal news - 2024

Who? I asked that question point blank and got no answer?

Who did Umass get because of NIL? Who did Umass retain (as in not transfer out) because of NIL?
Eldon, The Collective would have to answer that question. I hope Patrick does give us some clarification.

Re: UMass transfer portal news - 2024

Also, what’s “bananas” to me is reflexively contributing to an enterprise when you have legitimate questions as to its value. You have a right to your opinion, but this statement is totally out of touch. The value of The Collective is in getting us players that we otherwise would not be able to get.
