  1. Good luck the rest of the year. And oh ya, we owe a nice welcome when you make the return trip!
  2. Yup from my first post. They are freshmen thou.
  3. It will be interesting to see the players tonight. Who and how much and effective they paly. If TJ Weeks is still out but Dibaji Walker has been cleared to play by NCAA, source told @Stadium. Cleveland State transfer expected to play tonight against Akron. per Jeff Goodman ‏Verified account @GoodmanHoops
  4. Here is the link to the Akron thread. Remember most of the posters there think UMass is too good for the MAC and think football should be downgraded or dropped. Also note that the OT loss to Yale had an attendance of 2,212. (No one asked me and in the minority, but wanted to go all sports in the MAC when we had a chance. Bad timing as the A10 was at it's peak with 6 NCAA bids and the CFP made the money a no brainier for the ultimatum. Off my soap box apologies but most probable don't go the csnbbs MAC board.) https://www.umasshoops.com/newboard/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16279
  5. Sean East has come a long way, especially after Buggs went down with season ending injury. Chatman, who played for 12 minutes has left the team. Weeks has been out for a while, but is better in ways than his dad. Looks like you guys don't have TV so will probably go out and see the scores later.
  6. This is a winnable game for either team. Yes we have some young talent but imho the coaching staff has some x's and o's issues. We were doing well at home against Virginia with an aggressive trap. Took the Virginia coach 6-7 minutes to adjust and lead to numerous easy buckets. Our coach staff did not adjust during the 8,12,16 and halftime time outs. You could argue they barely adjusted. The other issue that happens over and over is opponents inbounding under their basket and getting easy points. We'd be an average team in the MAC and this game is up for grabs. Be a good sign for either team heading into conference play. A successful year in my eyes is a 500 season and limited use of trapping. More man to man half court defense. Regardless of the out come on the 30th, hope we continue to play in both Football and Basketball.
  7. Nice win for you guys. In just under 4 weeks you get us and really wish I could go, but my backup is on vacation for 2 weeks and a Monday game. We (UMass) are much improved but have lost four straight to Virginia, St. Johns, Rutgers and South Carolina. The last was tonight at home 84 - 80.
  8. Pretty favorable view of Gibson on hustlebelt. https://www.hustlebelt.com/2019/9/28/20889054/akron-zips-umass-minutemen-football-game-recap-stats-scores-sept-28-2019
  9. It was a pleasure to Mr and Mrs Captain Kangaroo. Did not know who would win going in. You guys can give us some payback on Dec 30th. We are young and found out Buggs is not a true pg but think the other positions are good. Will see and thanks for doing both Basketball and Football. Wish we could do the same with more MAC teams. Football wise we have a good number on the schedule. Hope things improve for you all, especially two years from now after the return game.. Will see if I can make the trip next year. Again if there is no pain, then there is no emotion. In that regard pain is good and things will eventually get better (Got to be optimistic as I've already made friends with the abyss after the SIU game.). You did replace the rubber bowl, just need some good luck.
  10. FYI, Six players suspended and two transfer so it will be a battle of the last one standing. (Includes the kicker, QB West, tight end and starting DT that is indefinite suspended.) https://www.gazettenet.com/UMass-football-suspends-six-players-for-violation-of-team-rules-28887845

  12. Hi Captain, Put together a visitors guide a few years ago and have made some updates. This is a link to the hospitality group and tripadviser etc. Will be in lot 11 and a friend will have a WHITE UMass flag up. Stop by and visit, but be early as we'll leave for the Commonwealth Club* a bit early. *Need to update the map with the stadium improvements as the Commonwealth Club has been moved to the new plaza at the south end of the stadium. https://csnbbs.com/thread-818378.html
