Re: Jim Kallstrom

He was a member of my old fraternity (7-10 years or so before my time) I did never meet him though.

Re: 2021-2022 Season

Away game at Yale. Their gymnasium the John Lee Ampitheatre is a relic. Went to a game there 15 or so years ago. Antiquated is an understatement. Noticed on the walls plaques for rope climbing captains. It said 97-98 and I scratched my head as I didn’t think that rope climbing was a sport. Then I lo...

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

As a quasi Jayhawk fan (my daughter recently graduated from University of Kansas) it will be interesting to see how Tre makes out against Kansas big man David McCormick

Re: 2021-2022 Season

McCall has been here 4 years with disappointing results. He's lucky that he's been given a 5th year.

Re: Tim Kenney to Bonaventure

Frankly I am shocked.

It seemed to me he was doing a good job - especially with Men's Basketball.

Re: Recruiting -- 2018 and beyond

Also, Goaltender Matt Murray to return for his 5th season.
I haven't seen that Lindberg was leaving so, if he does not,, that would give us two excellent goaltenders.

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

I agree - the idea of a ‘list’ is pretty sickening.
With 2 assistant coaches from Illinois leaving to go to Kentucky, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Bergeron and Mitchell going there,

Re: Ray Wilson

Really great topic and posts. I started Umass in Fall of 1972 and went to almost all games at cage in my 4 years. Placed rocked and patched even when playing Maine or Vermont. I think, at that time Jack, Ray, and Fan Gaudette were the coaches. Had great respect for all of them. I actually started ou...

Re: Is MM a winner?

KahunaK Your post is wrong on many counts 1) trying to diminish what Greg Carvel has done is shameful. Taking over a program that was one of, if not the worst, program in college hockey and in 3 years making the national championship game and in 5 years winning a national championship is a tremendou...

Re: KAEO: Ronnie DeGray III

We were not a good rebounding team to begin with and losing our 2 best rebounders Tre and DeGray, certainly does not help.

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

It appears there will be an assistant coaching opening at Illinois. I saw that one of Kentucky's assistants took a job as an assistant at Arizona State. Orlando Antigua, who was an assistant for Cal before at Kentucky (and Memphis) is rumored to leaving Illinois and coming back to Kentucky. I don't ...
