In our last 2 games we've reverted back to our old form from last year and we look to be turning a corner this year. We're 7-3, with three MAC games left in the OOC. Barring complete collapse this team will be 10-3 going into conference play. I was hoping for a little better, but in reality this where I myself, and I think everybody else, expected us to be. I would not call being 7-3, 27 in RPI, with a SOS of 10, as being a disappointment. In fact, that is far from it. Why don't all of you naysayers get off your pedestal and actually start watching the damn games. Right now UMass is the most tournament worthy team based on resume in the entire conference besides Butler and VCU. So please, stop scrutinizing a team that is better than yours and actually watch the games so that you won't make ignorant statements like I have seen all of you make (even UMass fans).
Maybe you should have paid attention.

UMass appears to be coming together and getting more organized. If what appears true is true, they will win out the OOC and finish 10-3. And they will play the conference about like last year, i.e., a legitimate threat. Last year, they were a few buckets away from going 12-4 in conference. And despite your first reaction to that, no, not every team was a few buckets from a better record the way UMass was. I've been encouraged by the last two games--let's see if they can keep it up.
