Re: 2020 Season

Spring football makes no sense now. Either put together a late-season schedule (which I'm not sure is advisable although I'm willing to see if the data suggests otherwise), or wait until next fall.

Re: 2020 Season

The Big Ten is looking at tens of millions of dollars in lost TV revenue, so this comes as no surprise. Also, the power 5 schools have the resources to institute state-of-the-art COVID procedures, like the quick-result testing which the NFL is using. This stuff costs money that many Group of 5 schoo...

Re: 2020 Season

So far, I'm finding that I have no interest in the college games that are being played. It just doesn't seem like a real season. The NFL is a different story . . . older professional players, strict league protocols on testing, contact tracing, face cover requirements, etc. So far I have seen little...

Re: Bobby Powers

Very sad news. Bobby was a great and loyal member of the UMass family, not only for basketball but for all sports and for all aspects of the University. Thank you for sharing this, Tom.

Re: 2020 Season

I don't see how you play a spring schedule and then come back in the fall, unless it's a limited schedule that they can just call spring practice.

Re: 2020 Season

I have a feeling everybody will pull the plug by the end of this week. No president wants to be liable for something bad that might happen.

Bobby is a great guy who bleeds UMass maroon. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery!

Everything changed in the sports world when NBA players started testing positive.

Great story! Yes, these three guys deserve a rousing sendoff. They personify what UMass is all about!

Re: Game 31, 2019-20: Rhode Island (3/7)

^ The Vegas linemakers take something like that into account big time. I would not take UMass giving only 2.5 because URI is on the wrong side of the NCAA bubble and desperately needs to win. Besides, I only bet on four-legged animals. But think the 4 that I quoted would be a fair line and I look fo...

Re: Game 31, 2019-20: Rhode Island (3/7)

I'm not a sports bettor, but without doing any research, I'd have to guess UMass has a winning record against the spread (yes, Joleon, we covered in all three of the games you mentioned). Guess my 4-point prediction wasn't radical enough. I did some calculations based on the spread in the Dayton-URI...

I predict URI will be a 4-point favorite.
