Re: Massachusetts Athletics Branding

Agree we need a decision and consistency. A key part of branding is see a color make an association e.g. Tennessee orange, Carolina blue etc . The red tones make that association difficult since look like Harvard and BC. IMHO deep maroon is the color I as an alumnus associate with he University of M...

Re: Massachusetts Athletics Branding

Part of branding is color, I see many versions of marron some look like BC and Harvard colors. The University of Massachusetts should have an official Pantone marron , like UNC Blue, IBM Blue and use it in branding including officially licensed apparel.

Re: NIKE

I hope that he fully recovers. Cynical note: It likely raises the value of his endorsement contract , what a marketing opportunity for his own shoe.

Martin Luther King Senior at UMass SUB 1976?

I seem to recall hearing Dr. King's father speak at the Student Union Ball room my Junior year 75-76. Does any one recall that event ? I think it was spring 76.

Re: How 'bout them Sawx!!

I don't like 2-3-2 either. It tends to give home court / field advantage to the 3 team if they split first two. It is then a a best 3 out of 5 with 3 team hosting 3 consecutive games.

Re: Nike

IMHO there is a big difference between supporting the warriors versus supporting war. We may not agree with the political decisions that put soldiers in conflict in the air on the land or sea. We need to respect the decision that many have made to serve in our military and defend the freedoms and co...

Re: Minuteman Band to perform halftime at Pats opener

In my view The UMass Marching Band is an ambassador of excellence for the University and its flagship campus this exposure in Springfield and Foxboro is all good.
