Mass appeal

UMass lost the NIT title game to Ohio State last week but hopefully they won't lose upstart Coach Travis Ford too.
With the Oklahoma State and LSU coaching jobs still open, Travis Ford may be a hot commodity. A former Rick Pitino pupil, Ford is the best coach UMass has had since John Calipari (another Pitino recommend) resurrected the program and took UMass to the Final Four back in 1996. Now only time will tell if the new Mullins Center and all the campus facilities that Calipari inspired will be enough to make a top coach stay at UMass and not just use the program as a stepping stone to a bigger coaching job.
