I appreciate Coach staying to coach these guys last night. Solid. Thank you for your hard work. I know it didn't go as planned.

Re: Game 27, 2021-22: VCU (2/26)

Man, what a sad state. It is what it is. For perspective, I recall in the mid 90's when traffic took 3 hours to clear out of the area after games. Anyone remember that? There was a huge movement in favor of building an overpass in front of Mullins so that cars didn't have to wait for thousands of fa...

In terms of big deals when we talk about the school, that fact alone is pretty cool and quite a departure from what we've come to expect as fans.

Re: Attendance figures

Not really. I was around in the days when Rafer Giles was in a packed Footlocker in the hampshire mall as he bought his sneakers. I might have been the only person in there who knew who he was. Yeah, the Cage was hopping for Julius, et al, but the Cage really didn't get rolling in the 80's until Cal...

Re: Attendance figures

I agree Juice. Gimmicks and giveaways are only temporary bandaids. Only way to increase attendance is winning. I disagree. There are many mediocre and even some losing athletic ventures across the country that attract more than 20% capacity at their venues. We all know that there is a supply of fan...

Re: 2021-2022 Season

OK, I'll say it. As a team building experience, I'm not a fan of this https://twitter.com/UMassBasketball/status/1426231087232163842 Watch Kolton almost give himself a concussion as he tries to duck under a ball.

It's already beyond bad. As fans, we hope for the best, however, this program has sucked for quite a long time.

Not any one thing. Multi-factorial. Uzi paid the price for general immaturity that a lot of us featured at that age.

Re: Georgetown - 25 years ago tonight

It's funny how Donta was a Top 5 HS player in the country but was still underappreciated I actually think it was because he came here. The other guys in his East McDonalds AA class ended up at marquee schools: Kentucky X2, Maryland, Arkansas, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Miami, Syracuse, and North Caroli...

Re: Georgetown - 25 years ago tonight

Got pulled over by a South Carolina State Trooper heading north the next morning at about 3AM with "Go UMASS" painted on the car windows and Mass plates. Was in the middle of a group of southern cars traveling the speed limit and he came up the back like a shark through a chum slick. Cars ...
