The re-branding to Massachusetts. Like it but what do you guys think as the UMass is ever present.

We've been the flagship as part of the deal that goes back to the renaming of the universities to UMass-Boston, UMass-Dartmouth, UMass-Lowell, UMass-Worcester. That happened with the stipulation that UMass-Amherst is the flagship and only one able to use it.

We don't like the hyphen, but we are the #Flagship .

UMass-Lowell is now division 1, but can never claim to be the Flagship university of the State of Massachusetts, that distinction belongs to UMass-Amherst.

In non flagship news, Dayton has received a verbal commitment for 2020 from 6' 5" Koby Brea a shooting guard who plays at Msgr. Scanlan HS in the Bronx. He played for the Dominican Republic team in a FIBA event this past summer. Supposedly had interest from the likes of UCONN, St. Johns, UVA, Maryland, Seton Hall and others. Some of that interest may have been predicated on the belief he would reclassify to 2021.

I went to the VCU Black & Gold scrimmage last night and it was fun to see the incoming freshmen. It is going to be fun saying Bizzy Bones Hyland this year.

Does anybody know when Media day is? I googled it and amazingly did not find anything for 2019. It should be this week based on when the past years have had them.
