Ebabe- the 04-05 UMass team would beat the 01-02 squad. Lets just wait and see how this season goes before you already start shovelling dirt on them. Its gonna be a good season and a fun team to root for.

Bruce that is the stupidest thing you have ever posted.
There are no quitters on this team and your insistance that these guys are quitters is just some outrageous BS. I would Love to see you walk into a practice/weightroom where these guys work their asses off trying to get better every day and tell anybody on this team that he is a quitter and that he has quit on the coach. The truth is that You have quit on the coach. You are under the serious delusion that you can read the minds of the players and that you have determined that they share your opinions. Nobody on this team is a quitter. No one of these fine young men has quit on themselves, this program or the coach. You are an idiot for trashing these guys who deserve your support.
Third they don't suck at all. They are the most talented group of young ballplayers (yes Bruce they are in reality a young team) we've had on campus in YEARS. They are hard working, talented, strong and dedicated to themselves, each other. the coaching staff and UMass. They do not suck - you suck for even suggesting such bullshit.
You really ought to think about how stupid you sound when you post that either the players are quitters or they suck. There are numerous reasons why teams lose basketball games - it just doesn't come down to they "suck" or they "quit". That is precisely the type of dumbass oversimplification that is just stupid its impossible that you even stopped to think about what you were saying before you submitted it.
Are you looking for a reason games are lost? how about sloppy execution, getting out coached, the other team is better, inexperience, conditioning, matchups, bad luck, bad calls, stupid fouls, poor substitutions etc. There hundreds of reasons why teams lose games - it does not come down to quitting or sucking. IMHO UMass lost far too many games last season because of poor coaching and/or poor execution. IMHO nobody on this team is a quitter in fact I know it is the opposite is true - these guys play hard and practice hard. I also know they don't suck - they are talented and improving as players, individuals and as a team. And they are going to be a fun team to root for this season.
These guys are great young men there is just no need to trash them because you hate the coach.
