Re: Recruiting & commits

It is also complicated due to the possibility that some seniors will come back to plan in '21.

I have not seen anything about expanding rosters nor scholly limits changes.

Coffee with UMASS coaches

This cuts across many sports so placed here. This video is an interesting look at how our teams' seasons suddenly ended, hosted by A.D. Bamford.

Be well, careful and safe.

NYT article on Liberty that I believe is not behind the paywall - it may anger you.

Re: State of the Progam

Undoubtedly Christians did the same thing during the Middle Ages/Black plague, did not work out well.

And the varying ethnic cleansings over the past 100+ years, same deal.

What if the 'the plan' is for some humility for the planet's residents?

Agree on Liberty, btw.

Re: State of the Progam

The college cash crisis is very real for residential universities, like UMass. The hidden fact is that colleges use room and board to balance the books. Now, almost all colleges are rebating 1/2 semester of r&b to the parents/students as they shut down around March 10. Tens of millions of dollars ar...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

IMO, no. The Jerk in charge makes my head hurt. I only trust Fauci. And among politicians, Cuomo has been impressive. Charlie in Mass is waiting too long, letting individual towns take the lead. For example, Acton MA has banned: massages, hair cuts, styling, tattoos, nail salons, and other close per...

Re: SPRING PRACTICE

Folks, UMass is closed for face to face teaching and large gatherings. Football practice would blow through current MA restrictions on gatherings, including team meals or film sessions. And, colleges may face a mass increase in virus cases as students return from spring break this weekend, which is ...

Re: A10 Tournament

Not for long. What a mess. And we still have no idea about the true spread of the virus due to incompetent government response.

Re: Hockey East Tournament

The whole 'study at home online' aspect is mushrooming by the hour. It is worsening. Of course, no large events will be allowed on campus.

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

I teach a lot of Bernie supporter aged students. I was surprised that so many did not 'feel the Bern', but neither were they enamored with other candidates. The core issue in my view is that civics as a subject area has been dropped systematically in many/most school districts. For most Americans, v...

Re: 2020 polls

UMASS rises to Number 12. No other CAA team in top 20. ACC, Ivies, Big East dominate.
