I know this doesn’t fit the narrative, but does anyone worry the basketball coach doesn’t get along with most players,getting a bad rap,and a record of players both running and being run off teams. His last team blew up during his second year,yet we are going to extend his contract. At what point is it the coach and not all the players.

The basketball coach hasn’t run guys off, yet. My guess is he recruited over the guys who left. I don’t believe he gets along with them like DK did, but that didn’t work either.

Absolutely worried. I don't understand why everyone is acting like McCall has changed the world in the past year. He hasn't. If it wasn't for Pipkins, imagine where we'd be. This upcoming season could have been a push for the NCAA but alas it's another rebuilding year at best. The extension is utter nonsense. Bamford and a large part of the fanbase are like the dog sitting at the table in the fire saying "this is fine."

Will the players answer the McCall or ignore the McCall. Next year we will find out, as college basketball has become a one year circus each year for all teams. No extension, this could go either way next year.No more programs when the players and coaches have no loyalty.Remember Bamford picked Kelsey,so his judgement is suspect.
In Whip we trust;he will have UMass bowling this year, he has built this team from scratch and has been loyal. I love seeing him stick up for his players, and seeing his players constantly praising him. Frank your loyalty will be rewarded this year, as it will be fun to read your blog about the Uconn beating, bowl game, and sellouts. 7-5

I am somewhat worried too but McCall deserves 3 years before we judge in spite of hoops being a one year thing now. I get it completely.... he’s got fans worried. But McCall is going with his guys that he is bringing in. Turnover is typical of a coaching change. I don’t want his players to be his buddy. I want them to listen and do what they need to do to get better. He is very well respected in NCAA and NBA coaching circles. Ask Al Horford...He gets 2 more seasons and then I’ll judge. I fully expect them to go dancing after next season. If not then he’s way, way overrated and I’m way, way disappointed.

We went to graduation earlier today at McGuirk,great day saw a packed stadium, rented big screens, and new school colors, Black with white lettering. My friend Brian Long always complains about red being the school color, looks like they listened. If you don’t believe me look at the pictures of the stage. Also as usual no merch for sale, just food. School proved they could handle getting 25k in and out of stadium. Unfortunately not ready otherwise(no bathrooms,gravel walk,poor concession setups,no permanent big screens). No wonder Whipple is pissed, when school doesn’t reinvest body bag game revenues. As they say in my hometown of Sharon Oy vey.

The comment by anonymous is puzzling. I'm not sure how he could be a current student or an alumnus if he thinks the school color is red. Maybe he's a little color blind because the school colors are maroon, black and white. There is not a big difference between red and maroon, but there is a difference. I did look at the commencement photos after his comment and I'm not sure what he is looking at because the predominant color on the stage and in the stadium is definitely maroon. Just saying.

Well it is clear “anonymous” has a specific axe to grind with McCall. People are worried? Who? I have heard 0.0 worry. Run off players? You mean the ones he didn’t recruit? Happens everywhere. Something is fishy with this guy.
