UMass Minutemen 2010-11 Schedule Analysis: Non-conference

At first glance, the thing that jumps out regarding the 2010 – 2011 schedule is the large number of home games. Moreover, there would seem to be a much larger number of “winnable” games then in the last several year. What I am saying; this has potential to be the easiest schedule I’ve seen in the last 6 or so years.

This isn’t a bad season to have such a schedule. The team is young and is really ramping up for a year to two down the road.

A Bad Artist Rendering Of Marcus Camby

This does not look like Camby to me. I don’t know that I have ever seen him with hair that long.

Cady Lalanne Commits To UMass

Kellogg gets another solid recruit with a commitment from Cady Lalanne. Cady is a former Georgia commit. Lalanne was denied admission to Georgia. There is speculation that a class which he previously thought would be counted towards admission was deemed unacceptable.

Lalanne had a number of offers before previously choosing UGA — including VCU and Ole Miss.

According to Daniel McDonald and Rivals, Lalanne to UMass is a done deal.

New Side of Kellogg, New Faces At UMass

The article has some really good quotes:

Kellogg’s attitude and coaching style is already dramatically different than it was last season.

“He’s a lot tougher,” Harris said. “Last year he was trying to get to know the guys and be friends with us.”

“This year, as soon as he steps between the lines, he turns into the Incredible Hulk,” he added. “And when you see that, you want to go through a wall for him.”

2010 Recruit: Jesse Morgan


Jesse Morgan, a 6-foot-4, 180-pound shooting guard. He hasoffers from Louisville and Rutgers. He says his top five schools are Seton Hall, UConn, Louisville, Rutgers and UMass. However, Jefferson said UConn and UMass “like him” but have not officially offered.

This one looks like a long shot with some Big East schools sitting in between Coach Kellogg and Morgan.

Also of note is the ESPN and Rivals have Nebraska, Baylor, Temple and Marquette in the mix. Although, it would seem that Morgan has narrowed his list down to include those five previously mentions schools that includes UMass.
