There's an absolutely incredible buz [sic] in your head. Perhaps you and Anthony hang out?

JJ, I'm sure Lappas has had a license for over 30 yrs as well. Why don't you try being an NCAA head coach?

No puffing for me, i prefer Mr. Jack and Mr. Daniel. Thank you anyway.

Hope Viggiano gets healthy soon.

The ultimate win-win situation for the UMass Basketball PROGRAM. They advance several rounds into the NCAAs and Lappas takes a lucrative offer from another school.

Then I can go to that school's fan board and post under the name of 'arnold'.

Today our RPI is 34 and BC is 7th

Uconn is just ahead of us at 27. Pretty soon UConn will be hurting our RPI instead of helping it.

Didn't Davidson beat Mizzou? And then Mizzou beat Gonzaga? It's a big ol' crazy world, innit?

The NCAA changed the RPI calculation this year (it adds weight to away wins and reduces weight of home wins). Collegerpi.com is using the new RPI calculation. Other sites may not.

You must not have followed UMass football the past few years. Georgia Southern was UMass' opponent in the 1998 championship game.
