Sorry, I was at a family event where EVERYBODY went to BC (I turned them down for UM as BC was closer to my home than my elementary school in Brighton). Anyway, Hoops is still a distant 3rd to Hockey and Football with those folks from what I see. Might be different with the undergrads, but Alumni se...

Who is to say Vermont is not making a further commitment to the Winter Sports - they are already joining HE next year in hockey. UVM does not have the cash drain of 1AA football, and basketball is fairly easy to make a profit in, especially in a conference such as theirs, which is so much less sprea...

Pretty hard to see more than A10 tourney champion in NCAA now - the prognosticators seem to agree as well.

Rocks - great analysis. Color this regime as underachieving for sure. It is also a cautionary tale on regime change - you may not get much better. I am not sure if you have the data on this, but I wonder if there is a way of tracking success rates of first time D1 head coaches vs. hiring older 'war ...

This was simply awful - the only reason we were ahead was Temple shot extremely poorly from 3 point land in the first half - like 0 for 14. The number of multiple rebound shots by Temple, IMO, displayed a team that did not want the game as much as Temple. Given the lack of strength of A10, I think t...

Well, URI beats St. Joe's - 65-60, so I guess it was a big win for us. :roll: Wotta letdown with Temple - no effort.

The Temple - UM game lost its TV appeal a couple of years ago - too bad. St. Joe's and URI are on TV, as are GW/Dayton right now. We (UM) do better, we get on tv more. I do not blame Bruno here. UM should be broadcasting more of its games on the internet when there is no TV coverage - their bad. Why...

No way Chaney should be coaching again this season - playoffs included. As for the 'enforcer' - I am conflicted.

I cna't believe I just read six pages of this crap you guys are should be ashamed of yourselves. BIG DEAL that the students say "you suck." Who cares if it gts in their head as their shooting a free throw. The students enjoy it. It's the same philosophy as the hockey games. If the student...

The "You Suck" cheer displays a lack of vocabulary and humor - it is coarse and not a bit clever. It reflects poorly on UMASS as a school of well educated folks, and shows a lack of both decent vocabulary and the research ability to be original. Somehow, fans such as Duke can be very LOUD ...

Phil, He fought that good fight (racism) through the 80's. After that, he increasingly became an irascible anachronism, with a brutal temper and ego to match. For me, he is the poster man for failed anger management, arguably second worst to Bobby Knight. Like many a person in sports, he stayed too ...

Why this guy is some sort of sacred cow has always eluded me, never a fan, and certainly his post-game attack against Cal was one of almost WWF caliber lack of class. Always struck me as an "us against the world" bully type. As far as Linda Bruno goes, she has pretty much zero power, these...

A year ago on this date we were 9-16, 7 games under .500. Today we're 15-9, 6 games on the plus side. A 13 game improvement. You can still want him gone, but even you have to admit that this season has been an encouraging turnaround. Not to quibble, but it's not a 13 game improvement. To date, they...
