Re: Game 13, 2019-20: at Akron (12/30)

Actually, Ken Pomeroy and folks like that could produce a likelihood of us winning those games with TJ in the mix. True, it wouldn't be 100%, but it could be close. actually creating a win probability is fairly useless in terms of arguing about whether we could have beaten Yale. The sad fact is we ...

Re: State of the Progam

snores is an okay campus ....it just sucks compared to Amherst and the Valley. :D :D Thanks OC for posting this article. I certainly thought it was very relatable to us - esp the paragraph about UConn football. Then you are utterly clueless. The article had nothing whatsoever to do with UMass Footba...

Re: State of the Progam

^ Very strange. I'm guessing that #1 on most alums' list concerning the "state of the program" is whether it will survive, which you don't seem to even consider. To me, your view, taken in a much broader context than of a single message board, certainly is currently the minority view. I hope it sur...

Re: State of the Progam

Jack and Maz - I'm glad that you guys and a few others are around to defend the minority position. I really am. OC I'm not even sure you know what the hell you are talking about. I'm around to call you out for making idiotic posts that are totally off the thread topic which is "State of the Program...

Re: State of the Progam

Here's a must read on football yes or no. Surprisingly, it was a free read for me. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/27/sports/dropping-football-northeastern.html Not my reason for posting, but one section about Northeastern argues against the theory that football helps with enrollment numbers or col...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Nice job by Coach Bell in getting what appears to be a nice early class of good quality players at positions of need. This was a successful early signing period IMO.

Yes - Coach McCall deserves a full opportunity to develop his recruits and improve the program.

Re: 2020 Season

30 or so yrs of UMass Football and I agree that Coach Bell's team this season was the worst that I have ever seen - including Molnar's team. Bell simply refused to play complimentary football and Bell's failed HUNH concept led directly to huge blowout losses and totally unwatchable football. I'm an ...

Re: State of the Progam

We will likely be awful for as long as Mr. Bamford allows Coach Bell to run the HUNH offense w/o the necessary personel. If Coach Bell abandoned that ridiculous offensive strategy and actually tried to play complimentary football then the team wold not necessarily be awful at all.

Re: 2020 Season

As long as Coach Bell insists on running a HUNH offense w/o the personnel to succeed (including a QB) , then Bell's offense will likely continue to generate blowout losses and unwatchable football. Inexplicably, this is all apparently okay w/Mr. Bamford. I emailed Mr. Bamford after the SIU loss and...

Re: State of the Progam

Scratch your head all you like - The fact is that Whipple had the program making incremental progress. this was apparently insufficient and the decision was made to hire Bell to improve the program and thus far that decision appears to have been a colossal mistake. But by all means feel free to go c...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

The old Jack is back! I thought you wanted to delete this thread...He won five games his first year and the team was competitive. He would have been fired after one year for the way this UMass team is playing. It took being blown out by UMass to get him fired: https://www.sbnation.com/college-footb...
