WTF.... Mid season transfers?

This is literally like a professional trade deadline.

Re: UMass transfer portal news - 2024

^^ My extra curriculars were three part time jobs to help pay for college. I didn't get a free ride. Now you just sound like a bitter old man talking about tough you had it and no one that comes after you should have it any easier. Someone is willing to pay kids money, in some cases life-altering m...

Or Don Muraco?

If I remember, he was The Golden Boy Don Muraco?

How in hell do you have a conversation like this without mentioning Jimmy Super Fly Snuka?

Re: Pat Kelsey

I don't know how I feel about him TBH.

He was coming in to a somewhat toxic environment and he was smart enough to figure it out quickly. Does that make him a douche or smart? That could have turned out to be career suicide instead of a stepping stone?

Re: Conference realignment

I would assume we can make that work, especially with Thorr Bjorn being the AD over there. The two rival teams that come to mind for me when I think about UMass basketball are Temple and URI. We might have a game against Temple next year at the Mohegan event depending on results, but I've missed th...

Re: First reaction: UMass to the MAC

Let's put Football and Basketball aside for a minute: What about the rest of the sports? I do not have the time to research, so I can only make a general assumption, but isn't this a step back in everything else too .... Baseball, Softball, Soccer, Lax et The only thing not touched by this is Hockey...

Re: Conference Realignment

I'm kind of shocked the ACC hasn't sealed the deal with ConU yet. Seems like a no brainer if they want to keep their league relevant and intact. The only reason why they wouldn't is the state of their football program. I guess that shows that this is all about football and having the best basketbal...

Re: UMass transfer portal news - 2024

Interesting comment, by saying UMass did no better this season you are saying that you mostly judge a season on post season play…which is fine as everyone values things differently. I saw UMass this year as doing much better with this group than any team in a long time…besides winning more games th...

Possibly the most spot on post you have ever made here.

Re: UMass transfer portal news - 2024

Josh Coen made all A10 first team… Yeah…he made all A10, UMass got 20 wins….and a seat in front of the TV for the post season. At the end of the day/season UMass did no better with him than it did without him. Interesting comment, by saying UMass did no better this season you are saying that you mo...

Don't play the woulda, coulda, shoulda game. They didn't and that is all that matters unfortunately.

Re: UMass transfer portal news - 2024

I'm gonna see who comes in before I weep about who leaves. Good luck to them all. I'm pulling for the guys who stick it out and play for UMass, not for the biggest bag. I trust that Frank reloads and we are still very competitive. He did it last year Floyd, Umass is fucked for the short term. You s...

Re: 2024-25 Season

Frank said it earlier this season when asked about what was needed for next year. I don't know if the 3 incoming recruits bring this, but lots of players in the portal. Another 3 point shooter A rim protector More athleticism We do not even know if the income 3 recruits will stay committed - do we?

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

Saw 3 different casino odds. VCU by 1.5, pick-em, us by 1.5. I took Umass +1 which is basically a pick'em. I like the over much more at 138..... I put more than a couple bucks on that. I like that we are slight dogs as the higher seed. Just another small piece of motivation for the guys. Also, just...
