Re: KAEO Matt Cross

No, personal goals are incredibly important. And in all fairness, I don't know Matt's personal goals. My assumption is that if you are playing at this level in college that you have personal goals of playing at the next level, whatever that is. And at this point, my take is that Matt has done the wo...

Re: KAEO Matt Cross

Ahh, this is a tough crowd for sure. No, I don't necessarily think that Matt is at an NBA level. But going pro is more than the NBA. And I think that he has done enough to show his potential in this regard. My take away from the few comments is, pay the players what they want. How they manage their ...

Re: 2024 Recruiting

Yeah, same on the hoops side with Davis... seemed like he went into the portal and the next day committed to ODU.

How does this happen that fast unless conversations are already in-flight? I thought that there were rules about schools talking to players already on a team?

Re: KAEO Matt Cross

Honestly, Matt should declare for the draft / go pro. He's done everything that he needs to at the collegiate level. Coming back for another year only places him at risk for injury and derails longer term professional goals. There's really nothing more that he can do at this level to increase his va...

Re: UMass transfer portal news - 2024

We've seen the ceiling for Cohen and it is much lower than what he will face in the SEC... Not saying that he will not improve or adjust, more that this is a much bigger step than he faced in the A10...

Good luck Josh, you're gonna need it!

Re: KAEO Keon Thompson

Seems odd to me that Frank would say something like that. He seems more like an "earn it" type coach, rather than just giving it to someone so early. Keon made a big jump from yr 1 to yr 2, what's to say he doesn't work on his outside shooting all off-season? In fairness, if you want to c...

Isn't this true always? Can you give an example of a coach that continues to play athletes that go out and do what they want, regardless of the coaches instructions, and don't produce?

Re: Conference realignment

I would not assume anything for the moment. Common sense should prevail, but following common sense seems to be out right now (everywhere not just at Umass). I don't know if a more astute observation can be made about the current world environment. I am seeing things internally within my employer t...

Re: Game 31, 2023-24: A10 Tourney Quarters (3/14)

I'm just appreciative of the fact that we have something to be excited about and play for this late into the year. NCAA and NIT are both viable options at this point. When's the last time we could say that and seriously mean it? 10 years ago maybe...

Yeah, absolutely. I was quite disappointed to see him go.
