Re: Jesse Morgan has torn ACL

I agree, it's not a death sentence at all. But with no quality wins, and likely only 3 possible left, an NCAA bid is looking doubtful. I believe we will finish with a good A-10 record, but the key is to beat VCU, Butler, and Temple. To get a bid we likely need to win 2, if not all 3 of them. And losing Morgan certainly hurts our chances.

The worst part about only having the 3 man back-court is that a lot of our better runs on the court came when we changed the pace by inserting all 3 guards (Davis being the man left out). That won't be able to happen as much (or at all) now with no depth.


They might try a Trey/Riley combo after working them together more in practice. Trey is a true PG and Riley is not.

Re: Jesse Morgan has torn ACL

Playing time may work itself out, but this does look like it means more shots for Riley. That's not a good thing for Umass, as Riley shoots a lower percentage, primarily due to a heavier reliance on 3's and pretty poor shot selection. He's shot 4 ft's total this year, which is astonishing until you realize that he probably shot most of his two's with a foot on the 3 pt line. Morgan wasn't exactly selective in his shots either, but he did have a more versatile game.

I assume Williams shoots more too, for which he may keep a similar percentage or he may not (additional scoring load usually means making more difficult shots).

amherst 344 has disabled reputation
Re: Jesse Morgan has torn ACL

I couldn't help but laugh when I saw this.

I work as a bouncer in downtown Amherst just trying to make a bit of money while going to school. Jesse shows up one night last fall and refuses to pay the $5 cover charge (entitled much?). After an extended argument he finally decides to walk away. Then all of the sudden he reaches in his pocket and whips an EGG at my face and runs away. Fortunately he missed me by about an inch. If that hit me in the eye it could easily have done permanent damage.

Why he carries raw eggs out with him I don't know, but this is karma at its finest.

I hope this POS tears the other one next year.

Re: Jesse Morgan has torn ACL

Should've told him to not pay would be an NCAA violation.

Please, Bill, and anyone else out there who might be tempted. Please don't respond angrily. The z-man is a wonderful troll, but he has vastly overplayed his hand. I have much respect for his abilities, but he has definitely disappointed me here.

It's strange to see a thread come back to life after a month and a half of silence, but this anecdote is about the best possible reason to do so.

If only he had thrown the egg, then punched a horse, then went home and f**ked a watermelon.

Would have moved into instant A10 board legend status.

Re: Jesse Morgan has torn ACL

amherst 344 - you are complete and utter douchebag. If you are going to come on a public message board and accuse someone of shit at least have the balls to use your real name. What an asshole you are.

Err...OK. Like everyone comes on message boards and uses their real name? I think I've seen it a handful of times in about 10 years.

If its true I don't think it would be super hard to figure out who he was. Or at least narrow it down a bit. Its not like he said "I work in NYC". How many spots are there in Amherst where BB players would go out? And have a $5 cover.

If its true I'm sure its not the first time he's telling this little story. Probably other people who could confirm/deny it.

I thought it was a pretty strong first post. As strong as OTRMUSKIE? Eye of the beholder I guess. But both were strong first posts.

As Ice Cube would say "Today was a good day".

MSG77 - the whole point is that it's just a weasely little anonymous accusation. How, exactly, would anyone determine its veracity?

Re: Jesse Morgan has torn ACL

Eh, the punishment doesn't seem equal to the crime. He told an amusing anecdote, and we can use our knowledge of the internet to form our opinions of whether it's true or not. I don't feel like he should be called a douchebag and an asshole for this.

And really, if he wanted to wrongly besmirch the name of Jesse Morgan, I imagine he would come up with a more damning tale than assault with a deadly farm product. Of course I'm biased. I prefer to live in a world where college basketball players walk around randomly with eggs in their pockets and throw them at bouncers because they don't want to pay a five dollar cover. It's a more vibrant world that way.

Re: Jesse Morgan has torn ACL

ok, what i want to know is how the **** did he find this thread? he's not an active member, he obviously hates the umass team. i'm guessing he googled jesse morgan to find a way to tell his lame ass story.

how about the audacity to charge a $5 dollar cover? amherst is about the most ****ed up place on the planet. the residents hate the colleges but don't realize their little hamlet would be cow pastures without the schools. dickheads.
