I'm not sure that was worth posting twice.
But you need to correct your signature line so that it is accurate. All you need is an * in the right place, and under that another * with the notation "vacated."

We also decree that all opposing freshmen, henceforth, must be educated ahead of time on the 14-hour bus trip (amid tumultuous blizzards, of course) from the Buffalo airport to SBU... if only to avoid blindsided losses.

First of all, you ignored the rest of my quote where I mentioned how we can now employ a reliable 3 guard lineup with good players. You should have inferred that I was talking about our other weakness last year, guard oriented teams like La Salle. The reading comprehension on this board is top notch!

Secondly, how many times do I have to stress that this is a realistic P-O-S-S-I-B-I-L-I-T-Y. I'm not saying that it will happen for sure, but I do like our chances. If and when it does happen, believe me, I will have a lot of fun bringing up this little thread again and shoving it in all of your faces.
Talk about not being able to read or comprehend. YOU are the person who wrote "...What we lacked last year was beef in the paint, getting abused over and over by big physical teams." That is a sentence. That is a statement to which I then replied to because last year La Salle was not a big physical team and we still wiped the floor with you. Don't tell me what I should be inferring when you can't even understand what you wrote in the above statement and how I responded specifically to that statement. Did I spoon feed it slowly enough to you this time?

Re: NCAA Championship for Umass in 2013-2014?

This was on ESPN chat Wrap today with Eamonn Brennan:

Dan Smith (MA)


So, UMass returns all except their center (Sean Carter) They have signed two solid 2-3 star big men and have Derrick Gordon eligible in two years. Is this the start of a couple year UMass run?
Eamonn Brennan
(2:51 PM)


UMass isn't going to take the country by storm, but no question they're on the way up. I'd put them at a half-step below the top end of the A-10 in the coming years, but with plenty of room for variance depending on how they improve. That's a solid team, which is not something UMass fans have had the luxury to say all that often lately.

No mention of glowing llamas. Clearly not a real fan.

Yes I did say we struggled with physical teams. In that statement I was not referring to La Salle, but in fact teams like FSU, St. Bonaventure, and Stanford. Then in my original quote, which you SHORTENED, I proceeded to touch upon the fact that we have improved our 3-guard lineup, which would help us against guard oriented teams. You should have inferred that those teams were the likes of La Salle, Duquesne, etc. That inference therefore making your snide remark unnecessary.

I understand what I wrote, but you clearly did not. As evidenced by the poor reading comprehension.

Re: NCAA Championship for Umass in 2013-2014?

while not of twister and z-8's mindset, i have to take issue with the phrase "la salle wiped the floor with umass" 2 single digit wins does not equal wiping of any sort.

bremann is dead on with his assessment. we're excited in amherst, when was the last time that could be said? that's a big enough thing for me to get excited about.

the thing z-8 and twister seem to forget is that teams add quality players every year and no one here has any idea what teams are going to look like 2 years from now in the aten, much less the country.

You are both correct. Western NY, Central NY, Southern Tier, Adirondacks, Capital District, Hudson Valley. They are all Upstate.

Suffolk County is Upstate to some people.

Re: NCAA Championship for Umass in 2013-2014?

In my discussions with Knobby, I'm not saying UMass isn't going to be a force to be reckoned with...but again, as I've said to him before, why do you think that UMass is going to be that much better then UD in the next few years. Even X fans know UD landed a much better coach (as it appears) then we had before. UMass returns everyone and UD is making upgrades at 4 of the 5 players we are replacing off a team that beat UMass by 33 points (and oh ya, we add Benson back to the lineup). We still have the one PG in the league that is in Williams's league. Again, IF UMass is to be considered in the A10 title talk, UD certainly has to be also, yet Knobby thinks UD is going to finish 6th or worse next year while UMass runs away with this thing. The argument makes zero sense.

I'm not hanging a preseason banner. I'm just saying, if UMass is that good, UD could be too. The only player of significance that we lose is Chris Johnson (an honorable mention player). It's not even arguable that next year's UD team is deeper and has more talent then last years.
