Umass and UConn Conference USA

This is a rumor cannot be verified but an article I am posting below links UMass and UConn to the east division of Conference USA. Needless to say that UConn going to the BE has dramatically changed things for UMass. https://collegesportsmaven.io/tmg/api/amp/tmg/mark-blaudschun/uconn-fb-rip-sort-of-...

anything to read into with the increasing number of MAC schools on the docket?
I see it as schedule filler at this point. Doubtful its anything more than that.

Re: UConn to Big East 2020

Boston/New England is a big TV market for pro sports, local college interest is limited. What evidence is there that college or even UMass TV games draw? My guess, a .2 rating at best. I do not see UMass at all in 2018, see below. https://www.sportsmediawatch.com/college-football-tv-ratings/ Face i...

Re: UConn to Big East 2020

UConn going Indy is a huge plus for both schools....well more for us than them. The only way I see us even in AAC consideration is the following. We must leverage Gillette for the short term and financially commit to our on campis stadium expanding to 35-40K range. Our basketball facilities are at p...

Re: UConn to Big East 2020

This is where that whole stadium issue comes back to bite us in the butt. Doubtful they go with us. Word is they are looking at Army which would make them the exclusive home of the Army Navy game. UConn is expected to go Indy so not all bad news.

UConn to Big East 2020

Looks like this is going down. Not sure of the impact to UMass. AAC will bot allow UConn to stay as football only member.

Re: NCAA Tournament 2019

To say last night was special is an understatement. I was at the game with my wife who is a retired hockey goalie. It was her first UMass hockey game (and many more to come). Last night is what UMass can be across all the major sports. That was a home game with 600 other people rooting for that othe...

Time to change the sentence under the name of the Football Forum from, “Whip'ing the program back into shape.” to “”Waiting for the Bell to ring!” or something else...

Welcome aboard Walt!
Change it to "For whom the Bell tolls!"

Re: Head coaching options

I hope whatever happens with Whip, it's done with a little class and dignity. I know it's a tough business, but I'll never forget that 1AA Championship run, and how proud I was to be an alum. He deserves the respect Make him head of football operations or an Ambassador for the program. Just anythin...

Re: Games 8 & 9 (2018-19): Providence 11/8 and 11/10

It's like the Glory days are back. We need to stay focus and go one game at a time. Big thing to watch is how we maintain playing a HE schedule and get to the post season. Cocah Carvel is the real deal. Love his brand of hockey and love the winning!

Re: Head coaching options

We need a defense minded coach. I hate to say this but the BC approach is what we need. BC took on #2 Clemson with a stout D but for their QB going down that game would have been much closer. We need a defense to set up our offense that is NE football and it is what it is!
