Re: I guess no news is good news???

I certainly hope Sellers does a better job than DM and Howie in his later years, but as much as I hate to say, I'll believe it when I see it.

Re: I guess no news is good news???

The only thing I thought I might see this time of year, though not significant, is the annual team run (which might have gone into remission or disappeared due to Covid).

Re: 2021-22 Non-Conference Schedule

Well, good to see the schedule is up (in some capacity) on the website, and pictures of all the new players on the roster. I just wish there weren't all those 'TBA's on the sched. Damn COVID!

Re: 2021-22 Non-Conference Schedule

Yeah, I'm not crazy about scheduling DIII teams either (especially if they win or play us close). But there seems to have been a pattern of playing one each season (prior to COVID).

Re: 2021-22 Non-Conference Schedule

So that would leave 3 more teams on non-conference sched? I'm guessing one of those would be a DIII team or the like

Re: Recruiting under Sellers off to a good start...

So I take it Xavier Wilson and Jamir Reid are definitely not returning? (We can pretty easily replace the two but just curious)

Re: Recruiting under Sellers off to a good start...

I hate to mention what's possibly a bad omen. I think the last time we recruited a big man from Quebec (2002 I believe) he left before the season began. But hey, we went on to the dance that year and to CCSU-4's points, the big man isn't the same asset to our program that he used to be.

Didn't Ellison's dad also play a year at Western CT?

Re: 2021-22 Non-Conference Schedule

CCSU is playing NC State on 11/16 at Mohegan Sun, UMass-Lowell on 11/17. A nice opportunity to play a high-major at a quasi-home game. We need to get as many students/alumni there as possible. A nice test to see if Patrick Sellers and Tom Pincince can lead a campaign to get students interested/invo...

Sorry to Hear of Kevin Oliva's Passing

This was sad news. I only met him once, but remember he was good guy and funny. Sympathies to him, his family, and all others affected.

Re: Big Board!

Not sure. Am I embarrassed because it's taking long or just depressed that not many (especially those outside of the program) are expressing concern over this long wait. I hope for a coaching staff that can bring the program back to a point where there IS more global interest in a CCSU coaching vaca...

Re: Big Board!

I wonder if they're giving the new hire time to arrive on campus so a press conference can complement the announcement. Or something small like that. I know none of the candidates live particularly far, but am just sayin'.
