If I'm an AD at any C-USA school, I am on the phone with my lawyers, and/or local politicians to do everything I can to get this thing blocked. Tranghese bitched and moaned all summer about how one conference is poaching from another and that it's not fair, etc, etc., now he is proposing to do the s...

UMass 87, while I find most of your posts informative and very well thought out, I have to disagree with you here. Just because the girl wanted to be "initiated" doesn't make what the initiator did right. If the same girl requested that she be "gang-raped" and the initiator and o...

Yes, I did see Bell play this year, once vs UConn, once vs UMass. Yes, he is quick and can play both the one and the two AT THE COLLEGE LEVEL. As I said before, it's a whole new game once you get to the NBA. The guards are bigger, faster, and stronger. The Celtics pick, Banks, may need to develop so...

IV, I disagree with you totally. Yes he is quick and can create his own shot, but he'll have guys like Jason Kidd, and Allen Iverson in his shorts. The players Bell will be up against are FAR more athletic than anything he's ever seen at the collegiate level. He would have been a nice player in the ...

New stuff in the Globe today. Sounds like the lawsuit does not have legs.

Billy Bulger may be a lot of things, but the one thing he isn't is an "idiot". All jokes about his felon brother aside, you don't rise from the South Boston projects to the presidency of UMass by being an "idiot".

I would say that Gerry Callahan is a bigger jerk than both of those guys.

The new season of MTV's Real World(Paris) has a UMass student. His name is C.T. and is an SOM major. I believe he is from Methuen.

He already bagged the best looking girl on the show. Rock on!

If you subscribe to the view(as I do) that this is more about football and geography, and less about basketball, why on earth would the ACC include uconn? I would think that if the ACC adds 5 teams(BC, Miami, Syracuse, and VTech being the first four), wouldn't Pitt, Notre Dame, or even Rutgers make ...

Re: CV

Hoops411 is right about Charlie thinking about Storrs although he is more likely to go to the Bill Self. Joker do you work with the Long Island Panthers or someone else? I would love to be able to talk to another AAU coach that has UMASS ties. There are reports that Villaneuva's family would love t...

Interesting article about BE expansion

This confirms what I said on another post. Tranghese is a hypocrite. He deserves what he gets!

What a hypocrite. It was no big deal for him to pillage the A-10 a few years ago by taking Rutgers, WVa, and nearly stealing Temple.

How's it feeling now Mikey?

Zultr, I agree with you 100%.

To that end, the question that needs to be asked is, who is responsible for raising the profile of the athletic dept by getting it in the media?

Answer, Ian McCaw.

I know I've said it before, but it is worth repeating. He better have something good up his sleeve.
