No, much better to belittle a long time fan by calling him a bitter old man.
Fine, he is a bitter YOUNG man :lol: :lol:
Ok, boomer. 🤣😂

Re: UMass transfer portal news - 2024

^^ My extra curriculars were three part time jobs to help pay for college. I didn't get a free ride. Now you just sound like a bitter old man talking about tough you had it and no one that comes after you should have it any easier. Someone is willing to pay kids money, in some cases life-altering m...

Apparently you didn’t join the meeting tonight.
No, I didn’t. That would be accurate. I believe it was for members. But feel free to share any secrets of the temple if you're asking for money. Like I said, with all due respect.

No idea. But it has absolutely off the charts marketing potential.

Re: UMass transfer portal news - 2024

Another tweet from Frank. After his last tweet we heard about Matt Cross. I hope this doesn't repeat itself. Seriously, if Frank has 2 key transfers coming in, I will feel a lot better about this day. Frank Martin @coachFMartin Man I just got another great call 👀🥊👉 https://buy.stripe.com/fZefZD8uGd...

Re: KAEO Matt Cross

I despise NIL and the portal, but if the game must be played, I’d be going hard after Caitlin Clark before she signs her WNBA contract. We’re good at the guard position with Rasool, Curry and Jayden, but (1) she can really play and (2) what an absolutely fantastic marketing angle she’d be? Derek Gor...

Re: KAEO Matt Cross

@mckinney, we obviously have far different theories of value and program building. Cool. I won’t extend the impasse because the underlying premise goes beyond the court.

Re: KAEO Matt Cross

Glad to have enjoyed him representing UMASS. Not sure some of the kids in the NIL/Portal era really do represent UMass. That’s the problem, and that’s why the Collective pitch is a hard sell for me. Despite the name, we are asked to fund individuals, NOT the collective. The idea that buying off Mat...

Oh, agree with that. Cross is a demonstrated free agent. Keon seemed different.

Re: KAEO Matt Cross

So, the next stop would be his 4th school. This is incredibly stupid. College hoops has become a loose system of high priced pick up games at this point. And like the recent NCAA tournament, it is boring as shit. What we thought Frank was building (and what the departed players were saying) was hope...

Re: KAEO: John Calipari

the epitome of a player proud of his jersey. You won't see that again, guaranteed. Yep. 100%. I think Carl Pierre is probably the last player you’ll see anything close to that, and even he bailed on a last possible year. College hoops has turned into a very sad place. There is absolutely nothing un...
