Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

These lists are more to show what colleges he said no to then to show the ones he sad yes to, it's ego food. Gets the fan bases all lathered up so they shower him with praise and beg for likes and retweets. If it's Illinois, it's great college town, I spent a lot of time in Champaign–Urbana. The Ill...

Re: 2021-2022 Schedule

We had it for a few years sort of. The Coach's vs Cancer event at the Garden. A format like that would work, eight teams, four games on Saturday, four on Sunday. Matchups predetermined both days and rotate each year so it wouldn't be a tournament. It wouldn't crown a Best of NE champ but it gets the...

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

He left because he didn't feel he could develop under McCall. I have posted this already. What exactly does that mean? He thinks McCall can't help him develop his individual skills, or his team-based skills? A lot of that comes down to the assistant coaches, so does he think Tony is insufficient? I...

The house burning down is a prefect metaphor for UMass basketball over the last several years.

Re: 2021-2022 Schedule

A bracketed tournament like this would be tough because I think teams are only allowed one early season tournament per year so this would eliminate any of the teams who play from playing in any other tournament. And with most of the other tournaments weekend long destinations, BC, URI, and UMass at ...

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

Wackier, and not accurate. TB was paid $190,000 first year, next two years were to be around $465,000 - $232,500/year. Getting a raise for helping improve things isn't that strange, and it wasn't a $100,000/year bump. I'm just going by what is on the public records for the state of Massachusetts re...

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

What isn't a theory but fact is Bergeron, who was basically a career HS/Prep hoop coach before arriving at UMass got close to a $100K raise and a 2 year extension after his first season which I believe was his first season ever coaching college hoops. That in itself should raises a lot of questions....

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

Do you fire a guy that tried to get your best player to stay??? I'm thinking no. I mean, yeah... he couldn't keep the kid here that was attached to him being hired. The firing came as no surprise once Tre made his decision. Still hard to fathom that Umass gave Berergon an almost $100K raise with an...

Re: NCAA

Per Jon Rothstein, Marquette is closing in on hiring Texas' Shaka Smart.

If I recall correct while at VCU he was rumored to be Marquette top choice when thy last need a coach.

Re: KAEO: Sean East

I would have never guessed East averaged 28 min per game at UMass. I would have gone closer to 18-20 MPG for him.

Trey Davis was a deer in headlights his first year in conference play and he figured it out. Sean East is not returning to UMass but judging a player after one season seems a bit unfair.
