Re: Is MM a winner?

He's been here for four years, if these connections have been so great, why have we gotten only one Mass high school player who came via an open tryout? This is a cost savings of $100k for the basketball problem , we should call it what it is. Expand on this please...... and show your work Eldon wo...

Grossman is actually pretty well connected in mass from his time working for zero gravity basketball He's been here for four years, if these connections have been so great, why have we gotten only one Mass high school player who came via an open tryout?

Re: Is MM a winner?

That team you reference above.... And that team he references is the only UMass Basketball team to make the NCAA Tournament since James Bruiser Flint. Show some fucking respect and get over your weird hatred obsession with Derek Wolfgang Kellogg . Seek help, immediately... this is getting very worr...

Re: Is MM a winner?

This is such a weird thread. Is Matt McCall a winner? Well, he was a winner at Chattanooga in 2 years, and after 3 losing seasons has just had his first winning, albeit abridged, season here at UMass and every year has improved in the final conference ranking (13th, 12th, 8th, 5th). I'd say he's a ...

Re: Is MM a winner?

With Derek you could point to him being a great recruiter Not too sure about that. With Chaz- two NIT and one NCAA appearance. Without Chaz- nada. Umm it wasn’t just Chaz, he was def the engine but you had tv, put, maxie, trey, samp, cady and Jesse. All guys better than anyone mwm has brought in wi...

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

The rationale of not developing enough at Umass/under MM seems straightforward to me, as long as he ends up at a big time school. A "big time school" isn't necessarily a better place for player development. While true - it is a better place for exposure. Marketing means just as much as ab...

Re: Is MM a winner?

The facts are McCall is 46-65 in four seasons as the head coach. He was granted a reset by firing his staff. He has now been granted another reset with the Bergeron buyout. MM is not getting a "reset" from TB leaving. First, Umass can't afford to buy him out even if they wanted to. Second...

Re: Is MM a winner?

UMass needs a better coach than McCall, finding one may be a problem. Succinctly making my point. AKA be careful what you wish for... AKA the Devil you know versus the Devil you don't MM needs to improve - no arguments from me or any MM supporter on that; and we are about to find out if he is capab...

Re: Is MM a winner?

MM wanted Mathews to go to prep for a year before coming and he didn’t want to do that. I understand why Matthews would be disappointed and resist. He was excited about coming to UMass and didn’t want to wait a year. He is hopefully confident that he is ready. I so get that. It sucks to have to cha...

Re: Is MM a winner?

Winning is the ultimate deodorant. "Winning" coaches get away with (or are excused for) a lot of lousy things.

See Belichek, Calapari, Sheshefski, Few.... the list goes on and on. These guys can get away with murder.
