Re: 2020 Season

Bell, assistant coaches, and freshmen players have the same objective. You got your feet wet this year, next year is time to take that big step and improve from first year to second year. That absolutely has to happen with recruiting that we all expect to improve from rock bottom in being almost 2 ...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

Feel most post from emotion and the similar things were said about Matt McCall for two straight years. Need to give him 3 years. Hopefully, then you all can eat your words as this years bb team. If not, I'll smash my maroon glasses. Then I'll get a new pair of glasses. PS. Know it is simpler to tur...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

I'll keep the faith as he does have a depleted roster. Someone, that I trust, said we only had 45 players suiting up for today's game. Yesterday a huge Arkansas State fan says he has faith in Walt Bell and the early signing period blows up a first year coach that initial season. Hockey and basketbal...

Re: Game 3, 2019-20: Northeastern (11/12)

So fun to watch and a very enjoyable, completely satisfying win!

Re: Dan Shaughnessy

Don't subscribe and can not see his comments. But anything to do with football would not surprise me with him or fault with UMass AD etc in the past. The move to FBS should have been done in 1998. Support going there. But when we announce going independence, almost every poster on cnnbbs said we wou...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

Specifically think a FB Only with CUSA is possible. CUSA does not get a ton of money for their media deal. Their is money from the CFP but not a lot. Heck the 300k for each team making the APR is better than we will get as more independents means less money per team for the 0.5% allocated to teams ...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

Used to be VOR, we almost agree. Without a conference we are pissing into the wind. Have been listening and posting thoughts on this issue for a while. Think with UConn, down the road as it will take time for them to realize that being in a FBS G5 conference has it's advantages. Specifically think a...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

We are more Buffalo like in needs and investments and doing fine in using their same time table. Temple is renting a FBS stadium and been fighting a tough battle for an on campus facilities. Talk about a huge investment. You also realize UNH made according to your standards, a huge investment in the...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

Would have included a broader view of the North East and only considered G5 universities to be fair with no ill intent of comparing us to a P5 university. Temple, 7 - 1 in the AAC East in 2018 and noting lost to Buffalo, another team, I'd consider to be in the more national view of the Northeast Tem...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

Just a couple questions for those who think that eventually with the right hire that we could run a successful football program. 1) What is the most successful FBS program in the northeast? 2)How does that schools facilities compare to UMass? 3)What would it cost to get our facilities on par with t...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

While big boy football has been an unmitigated disaster, dropping the sport would be nearly impossible. It would cause significant issues re: title IX, and the school would have to add several male sports or cut some women sports in order to stay in compliance. It’s could be done, but it wouldn’t b...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

Need to leave so this is short. No longer believe there is an acceptable argument that is realistic for both football and basketball. Think we need to wait on UConn but right now believe a fb only with UConn is the only possibility for a fb conference home. Been posting but also listening. The MAC i...
