Re: 2020-21 Season

Nothing we can do about it other than take the necessary precautions and hope we're seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

Re: 2020-21 Season

The college basketball season is going to be even more disjointed than football because all practices and games are indoors. I'm not sure they can pull this off without a series of multi-team bubbles in set locations. I heard Pitino suggested today the NCAA tournament should be delayed until May, an...

Thanks, Mike. I had no doubt you were on it. :)

Re: Season Tickets for the 2020-21 season

With the virus rate heading back to last spring's levels, don't count on any spectators on campus until a vaccine is available, which pretty much rules out the current school year. Hopefully we'll be back to some semblance of normalcy next September.

Re: 2020 Season

No UMass football broadcast outlets in Eastern Mass. that I'm aware of. The 105.5 FM signal doesn't reach outside Western Mass. I assume you can still access the live stream on the UMass Athletics website.

Re: Game 2D: @ Marshall - 11/7 @2:30pm

As long as we have some Breeders' Cup talk in this thread, my two cents worth: Sharp Samurai (15-1 ML) in the Dirt Mile. I also like Digital Age (8-1) in the Turf Mile, and I love Max in the Classic. They gang-banged him early in the Awesome Again, setting it up for Improbable, and that won't happen...

Re: All-time starting five

Aside from the obvious top 3, I will accept no arguments that Alex Eldridge wasn't our best PG ever. As for the 2, we can go in a lot of different directions. Skinner was really a swing guy but I have no problem plugging him into the SG spot, but how can we not consider our all-time leading scorer, ...

Re: 2020-2021 Season

Coach Carvel said in his regular e-mail that Hockey East play is expected to begin Nov. 20. The league will make it official after the schedule is finalized. I assume no fans and no OOC games.

Re: Game 1A: Georgia Southern

If it's just one or two games, so be it. At least they're trying. As we are seeing, Covid is not going away in either college FB or the NFL.

Re: Game 1A: Georgia Southern

I guess the cancellation of Florida-LSU opened up some slots. With respect to college FB, the networks seem to be taking whatever they can get right now.

Re: Game 1A: Georgia Southern

I don't mean to split hairs, but I think "rival" would be the better term. "Nemesis" implies that we usually lose to that team. I seem to remember attending a national championship game where UMass beat Georgia Southern. :wink: I'll split the hair: Nemesis: a long-standing rival...

Being a Ryan Bamford groupie isn't a crime either but I'd suggest you look at how other teams have handled scheduling games and then think about Umass.
Other teams are in conferences, which have a ready-made schedule.

Re: 2020 Season

If they want to enhance the television presentation (assuming there is one), they can always pipe in "Fight Mass" and other music on the PA system. It's a moot point anyway; my understanding is most of the band members are not on campus.

Re: 2020 Season

But there was at least some attendance at those games in the south. Our band would be playing in a completely empty stadium, so what's the point unless it provides some kind of boost for the players? I also expect the University will not allow people to go anywhere near McGuirk, and they probably wo...
