Re: KAEO Chris Baldwin

I'd be happy with one of those sandwiches they chuck into the stands Move your seats to section T. The sandwiches have been chucked into that section at least five times this season. So far, there have been 14 home games and 1 exhibition, so 15 games, and one of the 28 sections at the Bill, got the...

Re: UMASS FANS IN YOURRRR SEATSSS!

What a nice win, that Pipkins shot was miraculous. I got yelled at by a grumpy Umass fan sitting behind me who demanded I sit down. This was with 30 seconds left in OT. This guy screams shrilly every time Umass walks up the floor or switches on a screen, but I'm the problem for standing up in tie g...

Re: Game 10, 2017-18: Providence (12/9)

My best UMass PGs ever (not including Pip, who will finish somewhere on this list when all is said in done): 1) Chaz Williams 2) Alex Eldridge 3) Carl Smith 4) Edgar Padilla 5) Anton Brown (his alley-oop to Herndon in the Oklahoma game automatically qualifies him) 6) Joe DiSarcina (no, we didn't ha...

Re: Game 10, 2017-18: Providence (12/9)

Never saw Eldridge or Smith play, and did see Chaz make way too many boneheaded plays for him to be my number one PG. Edgar was in control, smart, didn't take many bad shots. Chaz could have benefited from both discipline and guidance, IMHO. When in game coaching wasn't there, he would just, to quo...

Remember people Pip is not the point guard for this team. So comparing him to chaz, dk, Alex and Edgar is not a really valid comparison.

You are right MikeEsq Why hire an assistant coach. We hired one years ago and Calipari was a real epic failure too ;)

Re: Is it time for a new head coach?

Re: Game 18, 2016-17: at URI (1/15)

On the matter of A10 officiating: Let me first say, I'm a long time basketball referee critic, prone to directing various obscenities toward the officials during the course of a game. In fact, I complained on the forum about the refereeing in the PC game. I didn't watch the Rhode Island game, but h...

Re: Game 18, 2016-17: at URI (1/15)

My quick takes: - the refs weren't great but the trend is UMass gets less calls, it has to be style of play not a conspiracy Go UMass! One thing to remember UMassHoops is They are A10 refs. IT is the same groups of Refs at most games. They they still won't give RH the calls when people make contact...

Re: Mullins Militia -> The Militia

C'mon. Your comment on 'representing the zoo' is anti-UMASS. UMASS fans, nor alums, do not refer to the campus as the 'zoo', e.g., Zoomass, however spelled. Be respectful, Econ MANY people refer to UMass as the Zoo, and it's not a bad thing. I gladly do it. There is nothing wrong with a work hard, ...
