Re: Football as a 2021 spring sport?

He also talked about the golden rule, gold/money. Media pays for those fall time slots and where the money is. Generally following the money is a good bet.

Re: The rise of the UMass football program...

The A10 is the only conference which is bus-able to nearly half the conference for Olympic sports. The G5 conferences have one, AAC - Temple and the MAC and CUSA are a stretch to have one. Know the AAC is the dream, but it will take money and on field performance leaps. Not impossible but if it does...

Re: The rise of the UMass football program...

There maybe some truth to your post, but you need to put it into context. Every sport has the died-hard and the fair weather fans. Football has not had a winning season in over a decade! Hockey had a huge jump after the NCAA championship run Basketball saw a huge jump in the 90's, NIT Final-4's, an...

Re: The rise of the UMass football program...

Thought economist do lots of research. From your post above. The northeast is just not built for college football. BC had a nice solid run for a few years way back when, but that is i t. For Umass (or BC for that matter) to be relevant - I mean truly relevant - the investment would have to be solid ...

Re: The rise of the UMass football program...

Or maybe it is just the product on the field. :( http://fs.ncaa.org/Docs/stats/football_records/Attendance/2019.pdf FBS and FCS attendance figures start on page 6. We averaged below 10,000, with only 2 ex-MAC brethren joining us below that line. UConn stunk too, but they nearly doubled our average....

Re: SPRING PRACTICE

95% sure they are cancelled.
Wonder if the NCAA will allow football to start earlier by the same number of days allowed in spring ball.

Re: Game 29, 2019-20: at Richmond (2/29)

Think Nilesgold is correct. Watch most of the first half and we may have played well for a few minutes. Stopped watch but did check once or twice early in the second half. Disappointing.

Re: 2019-20 season

With LaSalle winning and us losing, it makes Wednesday's game really important. Can this group recover from a horrid performance and take it out on LaSalle? I hope so. Yup, we need to be able to win on the road at LaSalle, or we could be playing Wednesday. We lost to GW, so believe this is a must w...

Re: Marquis Young in XFL

Watch some and saw the catch and which Marquis gain 8 yards on the play. Know that was the back-up QB, who could not throw the long ball. Hoping with the QB back it should open up the offense. Have to say the kick offs and extra point 1,2, or 3 yards are interesting.
