At least Lappas can get a team to a high seed. Lappas teams never fell flat on their face as favorites in their conference tournament either. Yeah....and what good does a high seed do when they go out in the first round and gack it??? That was quite a game against ODU in 1996 wasn't it??? Boy, Lapp...

I voted to ban him. I have no problem with free speech, and everyone's right to say what they want. I don't expect all posters here to hold hands and sing "Kumbaya, my Lord." But lets put a couple of things in perspective: 1) Miagi's sole purpose here is to antagonize. It's fine if he were...

St John's is not a good job anymore. First off, it's a glorified commuter school with horrible facilities. In today's world of athletics when football school's have state of the art everything for their athletes, St John's brings nothing to the table. The place is a total dump compared to most scho...

Come to think of it, I kinda figured this would happen. After all, this university has handled all athletic endeavors in a bush league, bumbling fashion for years now. From hiring Marcum, to the Div 1A football debacle, to hiring Lappas and extending him, up through the latest disaster with the new ...

I will not go to any more games, I will not support this team, and I'm tempted not to support this university.

I am deeply ashamed to be a UMass alum right now.

Can anyone post McCutcheon's email address? Assuming you're going to react to the decision, maybe you should wait until it's confirmed in the legit media or announced officially. Fair enough Mike, but even though we have yet to hear it from a credible source, I have this sinking feeling in the pit ...

Actually, You were already there before Lappas got to UMASS. What in the world did Bruiser do with all the momentum Cal built? If you're going to cheat, you can win at Baylor too. Are you saying UMass cheated when Cal was here? Prove it. Prove how Umass cheated. Give me a link, show me some evidenc...

We are talking about EXCITING, not most successful in March Oh, now I get it. A team that doesn't win in March isn't exciting, a team with guys that can dunk from the foul line and act like a bunch of hot dogs but don't win s*&t when it matters most is? I guess style points count for a lot in y...

I started reading your post and I got to this quote and had to stop..... [quote="MrMiagi"] In 3 years at Nova, he put the most exciting teams Nova ever had on the floor. [quote] ......because it is here where you lose all rationality. How could you possibly make such an assinine statement,...

I'll tell you what VP. If UMass "tears up" the A10 next year, I will have no problem posting on this forum that I was wrong. And you can quote me on that, and throw it in my face if I fail to do so. However, based on the first three years of the Lappas era, Lappas' record speaks for itself...
