I'm just bringing him up because there is no single individual more responsible for the precipitous decline in UMass Basketball's national stature post-Calipari than Bob Marcum. When I brush off the cobwebs to dust off the long dormant feelings of elation that accompanies participating in the NCAA t...

Bob Marcum

I'm just taking this opportunity to remind everyone who cares about the University Of Massachusetts that Bob Marcum is the absolute worst person who was ever hired to work for it. Every single second of UMass' tournament absence between the end of the St. Louis game in '98 and tip off on Friday is h...

^Was just about ask the same thing. Also, how did this guy, he who shall remain nameless, get a role in that movie? He had already been cast in a movie for a while and then another movie came and tried to cast him in their movie and he toyed with the idea before choosing to make a demonstrative com...

I have no idea what threads this has been posted in since I haven't posted since roughly Saturday, so I'll just post here. It was very very very refreshing to read an article that didn't feel it was necessary to mention Camby accepting money and UMASS being forced to vacate the wins and the Final F...

The Sixth Man just started (Spoiler alert)

I'm still going to be weirdly hopeful that UMass wins the National Championship game even though:

A) I know how it ends

and

B) It's a movie anyway

HBO Comedy, BTW

Before a game is played everyone is #1. Except UMass under Steve Lappas which started the season at #100.

That was fun. Maybe what just happened only means they'll lose every game from here on in if they don't make whatever adjustments that that guy who posted earlier said they need to make, but I'll still take an experience like this over a loss every single god damned time. All the better if it's the...

I don't think anyone has taken particular issue with his size other than to point out that it's relatively rare that a 5'9 player is a significant contributor at the D1 level and it might be a bit more than unfair to suggest that because this guy's body type resembles that of a very effective curren...

Actually, an answer to "why not?" is that 5'9 might be the most common height among North American males and it's rare and notable when one of them leads or even contributes to a Division 1 basketball program. So unless he does posses the full Chaz Williams package, he's more likely gonna ...
