Re: State of the Progam

UM96 Thank you for your service, Unf, the athletes do not have any penalty if their grades are not good. Nor would there be additional money for a tennis player who has a 4.0 gpa on her 1/16 scholarship UM96 thanks for your service. PreecherJenkins please don't get econalum going on the money we ar...

We win 5 to 3. Fairly low turnout but it is a 3 day weekend at UMass.

Re: Origins feat. Will Manny

Will had a great PLL season, and will hopefully head coach a D1 team in 3 years or less. :)

Wow, so many PLL players, vs. MLL.

The major question is which league will survive, or will the U.S. support 2 professional LAX leagues for years?

Re: Fall Ball 2019

I think that this is a smart recruiting move, getting visibility into the Canadian Lax world. Denver has been very aggressive in recruiting in Canada, among other top college lax programs.

Re: Game 7 Louisiana Tech 10/12/19

Here are the basic facts on the game, from UMass athletics, etc., which normally set the context. https://umassathletics.com/news/2019/10/8/football-hits-the-road-to-louisiana-tech.aspx And the betting line. Early odds are Louisiana Tech giving up 32 pts. https://www.capperspicks.com/free-picks/coll...

Re: GAME 6 FIU 10/45/19

How much evidence of non-interest on FBS could be posted, that a note on this FIU contest is posted so late/near the game, with this most 'rabid/involved' fan/alum base overall?

No one cares/or has given up on this season or the FBS journey to nowhere.

Re: State of the Progam

Nope. if a brand is viewed as high value, low cost, folks will flock to it. Price is not important, what is important is by being judged by outcomes, by major. The number of students accepted will reflect varying demands and outcomes. Economics says some majors or departments will wither on the vine...

Re: State of the Progam

^ That's one way to quickly devalue a bachelor degree. Of course, it is exactly the opposite I.V. As usual. It is basic supply and demand. The demand will go up, not down, as prices go down, but the supply/available slots to attend is basically constant, + OR - 5%. What will happen, given the incre...

Re: State of the Progam

UMass is becoming increasingly unaffordable for many students, especially as fees escalate. I care because unlike most of you, I have direct contact and conversations with dozens of UMass undergrads each semester outside of sports attendance, and through reviewing their resumes can see how hard they...

Re: State of the Progam

Yes, it is a coincidence. Please provide data to the contrary, not personal views/assertions. Any rankings are based on similar criteria as USNWR, except WSJ and PAYscale, which focus on mid-career salaries, which have in themselves biases against careers such as k-12 teaching, and towards engineeri...

Re: Massachusetts Athletics Branding

UMass has officially endorsed 202c https://www.umass.edu/brand/elements/color

A great deal of detail is provided in that url.

Then it is all about enforcement, or lack thereof.

Re: State of the Progam

Media market matters a ton. If UMass can become a top g5 then P5 will come calling. We are more attractive than UConn and haven’t been blackballed by other institutions. New England is blessed with highly competitive pro sports teams, which drain away from the sports entertainment dollar. Couple th...
