The tyranny of a handful as the administration is afraid of tweets and social media mobs.

Re: Game 10, 2019-20: at Harvard (12/7)

The game is listed on NESN and ESPN+ at 1 pm, so there is video.

Parking near football stadium will be muddy. Best bet is at the B school.

Re: Trouble for an accounting professor at Isenberg

As a college instructor myself, this seems to be a huge overreaction to a professor's attempt to lighten up basic financial accounting, especially when this has been happening with thousands of students over a decade. https://dailycollegian.com/2019/12/umass-accounting-professor-removed-from-classes...

Re: State of the Progam

Whatever the students' reasons for xfer, given the already low roster numbers, it is a bad look for UMass and. hard to recruit against. :?

Dropping the sport or dropping back down to FCS would make sense if the administration didn't want a USNWR #64 uni...
