Re: Is MM a winner?

^ Eh apples and oranges. It's a pet peeve of mine when sports media try to compare pro sports. Having a hockey/football mentality is vastly different to having a baseball/basketball mentality. So I guess I have to apply it to college athletics as well IMO.

That may be true, but if he had to sit this upcoming year, would he still have as much motivation to transfer right now? Probably not. I think both things can be true here.

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

How about this benign explanation for Tre leaving? It's all about the change in the transfer rule. The original plan was 3 yrs, right? He was gonna play here three years and the go pro or maybe grad transfer, in order to get his step-father a career breakthrough. But once they changed the transfer ...

Re: KAEO: Ronnie DeGray III

Just my opinion, this clearly hurts us from a front court depth perspective. Nothing else. I wasn't as high on Ronnie's game as some on here. He hit a couple of 3's, grabbed a couple of boards. But I thought he was very average at best on the defensive end, just like Tre was. You lived with it with ...

Re: 2021-2022 Schedule

Uconn and BC aint happening. Maybe we get Providence back on the schedule regularly. That'd be nice. But again, they aren't Villanova. If we want to grab teams from the middle/back of the pack in the power 5. Great. They still have a name brand attached to them, but they won't be overwhelming matchu...

Re: 2021-2022 Schedule

Wait, are my eyes correct? We are considering Rutgers and Penn State overscheduling matchups? Guys, just because they are from the mighty Big 10, doesn't mean that we scheduled Wisconsin and Michigan State. Rutgers usually stinks, this past year aside. But who knows what their roster will look like ...

Re: KAEO CJ Kelly

Take away the random goose egg he had in the second game of the season, and he averaged 15.4 PPG. Including 27 and 23 point efforts and 20 and 18 point efforts in the conference tournament. Kid is a legit scorer. I have no idea how he will fit into the rotation, but this is a great get.

Re: 2021 Recruiting

What does this mean for TJ? It shouldn’t mean anything other than TJ having a new teammate to spell him off the bench. Same with Cairo and Preston. Just more depth. More depth is great, and I'm all for Umass getting as many good players as they can. Just worried about this becoming an 11-man rotati...

KAEO: Trent Buttrick

Steadman got his, so why not start one for Trent as well. 6' 8" 240 pound forward taking advantage of his 5th year of eligibility at Umass. Averaged 3 and 3 while playing almost 14 minutes a game for Penn State. Hit 16 3's last year, including 2 in 12 minutes in the second round of the Big 10 T...

Re: 2021 Recruiting

This is seriously all we need. Quality role players with experience. I'm really digging it. Grab a couple boards, hit a couple threes and add some beef 240 lbs.
