Re: 2021-2022 Schedule

- Harvard owes us a home game ... As for BC or UConn, a change in coach might lead BC to fresh thinking, but I think Hurley might stab himself in the eye before he puts UM on the schedule. I like the idea of an expanded Commonwealth Cup. Maybe a kind of Beanpot, with UMass, BC, Harvard and Northeas...

Re: Is MM a winner?

I'm amazed! Most people here are more optimistic than I am. I haven't been here for ... a long time, probably most of McCall's tenure. My overall impression from that distance has been that McCall is not the guy, and Tre's departure clinched it. Then, on a whim, I come here to check out what the cog...

Re: Game 12, 2017-18: Georgia State (12/20)

Didn't use a zone, but in the post-game said he thought about it. But the way GS was shooting it wouldn't matter. One question regarding our long-term prospects this year may have been answered: What happens when Pipkins has an off night? He had back spasms this week, and played through it, but shot...

According to Matt V. in the Gazette this am, Baldwin can play.

“I don’t think he’ll have a ton of restrictions other than how many whacks he can take with a mask on,” Kellogg said.

I think it's in the NCAA bylaws that UConn can refuse to play Calipari whenever they want, and instead play any team of their choice from the MAC.

First - let me ask... do you think UMASS was in a better position when DK took over from Ford than UCONN was when Ollie took over from Calhoun? No. The cupboard was bare here. TF recruited with the vision of what he did in mind. And much as it pains me, UConn is a much bigger name than UMass when y...

^The biggest problem the Big East faced this year was moving to Fox Sports 1 from the ESPN, which lobbied for them for years. Granted the near monopoly ESPN had on college hoops for years in is now broken up by CBS, NBC and FOX, and even had the BE stayed with ESPN, they wouldn't have the same kind ...

Apparently BC has its heart set on Tommy Amaker. This is because they've come to realize that what they really need, given the high academic standards and entitled attitude of BC, a coach from the Ivy League who has had success in D1 hoops is the answer. Rather than getting some coach from a lesser ...

One could debate your other "betters" Marty, but location? You can have it. And yes, I lived in Cambridge for four years.

^ I was sitting 13 rows up from where the Mercer coach stood during his game. I loved watching him in action. He seemed to have an answer for Coach K at every turn. He has been at it for almost twenty years. Agreed. http://www.pennlive.com/sports/index.ssf/2014/03/post_451.html No one has mentioned...
