I don't subscribe to the Boston Herald on line, so I can't provide a link, but Steve Buckley writes a great piece about "Jackie" Leaman in today's edition.

If someone here is a registered Herald subscriber, can you please post the article?

Through both the good and bad, he was the heart and soul of UMass basketball. A sad day indeed.

Does anyone know of funeral arrangements?

Rhody up two, Vitale going crazy. 7 minutes left.

There have been two commentaries by Vitale about how he feels bad for Lappas.

Hey douchebag, Cal didn't get to a final four at Pitt, nor did Pitt win a Big East title. Before you call anyone lazy, you'd be wise to get up off your arse and check your facts. Here, let me help you: www.bigeast.com The point I was trying to make, which I guess was lost on you, is while his Pitt t...

And what was Pitt's record before UMass hired John Calipari? They weren't exactly tearing up the college basketball landscape. I would have no problem if we hired an unproven assistant provided he has the following criteria: 1) Young, vibrant, and aggressive. 2) Knows how to work within limited fina...

I'm happy for Bruiser, and I think it would be great if Drexel could somehow get into the dance. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy. But, geez! He's gone! Let's get over it! I'm much more concerned with how we rid ourselves of Lappas, than I am about playing Mr. Revisionist History with Bruiser Flint...

I agree on all 5 points.

Although it is unlikely that St. Johns would even consider Lappas. I think the St. Johns job is Bobby Gonzalez's to lose.

jj, it's the same guerilla tactics they employed at MassLive. Now that some people here have committed the sin of not being in total agreement, it's time to destroy this place too. And when it happens, they can think they've accomplished something. I agree with you guys. But I also agree with Wiggu...

Re: Delusional

UMass87 = Rational Wiggum = NOT UMass87 In a previous thread Wiggum mentioned that Bruiser was improving in his LAST THREE YEARS. He ignorantly used the RPI as proof but the conclusion was still correct as shown by the data that I dug up. Yes, Bruiser probably did deserve another year or two based ...

I have a question. Since the notion that a replacement COULD do a better job automatically means that firing an incumbent coach is always a good idea no matter whay the results are seems to be the prevailing opinion here... doesn't that mean that keeping a coach is always a mistake because there is...
