    I attended the meeting... a little late...attendance by fans was on the low side..I realize for the working fans hard to explain away this Zoom meeting

    Points made....

    • Great schedule...nice opportunities to play teams at our level plus the Syracuse game (a few points by others on this game)
    • Players healing well from injuries...the decision to close down the season has proven to be the best move, allowing players additional time to heal
    • Discussion about the NCAA giving players an extra year eligibility....comment from Greg...we are only going to 63 scholarship players...budget reasons
    • More attention to players weight...too many players came in high side of their weight
    • Fund raising.....the need for raising funds is critical .... the locker room is in need of renovation (last renovated 2001) ... recently recruits have commented on its condition....fund recruiting trips

    Again, I wish more of our retired alumni attended.....please note points listed are those i heard and remembered

    You got it well covered.

    Looks like one of my major gripes has been partially addressed. Reset of shot clock after a legit shot will be 60 seconds. Rules committee said this was the original intent, but technical & money issues made a for straight 80 second clock.  Even though 2022 is not a rules change year; the committee felt for the sake of "pace" and the original intent, the rule change will be implemented immediately. I think they are finally admitting the 80 sec. clock has NOT improved PACE; which I have complained about since shot clock day one. IMHO a 60/40 clock would be even better yet; but I'll take what they are giving at least.

    I agree, would have liked to changed to 60/40  - 80 seconds is just outrageous!!!!

  4.  I neve got an e-mail either.  Good thing I check in here once in a while.

     

    I went on-line, could not figure things out so called Erika.  Took maybe 2-3 minutes and I am all set.   They are still integrating previous account information, points etc. into the new system.   She verified my e-mail and was gonna try to find out why I never got an e-mail!  I MAY have gotten one but I have my e-mail set up so I get NO spam.......may have gotten it and didn't know.

    There you go. A completely unnecessary slide leaves a man open and Vermont scores at the end of the quarter.

    And senior Middies get beat repeatedly in the middle, Goldsmith every game, Ron John every game. Like you said after the last game NO accountability.  Just leave them in there.

    UMBC doesn't have explosive attack men. The slides today, and for the last number of years have been hard to understand and we created much of their offense. Kunz was sliding to guys 15-20 yards out, and when we make those slides it causes the the defense to start chasing. I have never understood what is going on back there. Overall just way, way too sloppy.

    AGREE!!
