The hoops board should be shut down. All they do is bash UMASS, the team they are supposed to be supporting. I'm not sure who the biggest loser is '78 or Marty Peretz, who is exhorting fans, not to turn out at the Mullins Center, and save their money for Brooklyn. Does this fool really want to help the A10 bank, at the expense of UMASS Athletics? Shameful.

Don't listen to shut ins on message boards, most like these two, are lowlifes. With fans like them, it is no wonder umass has a small minded fanbase,with no loyalty and financial backers.
