Re: Game 12, 2020-21: at Richmond (2/23)

How can a team maintain any kind of consistency/rhythm with this type of 17 day hiatus?

We are a victim of circumstances, pure and simple.

Oregon U students push back on fees to support athletics

Since UMass has one the largest student fee-supported athletic budgets in D1, I thought that this article was interesting.

Re: 2021 Schedule

Re: 2021 Schedule

I'd say the Lowell game is slightly more likely than Army. That said as of now, UML sees the game next week on Tuesday, Feb 23rd at 1 pm. https://goriverhawks.com/sports/mens-lacrosse/schedule/2021 It is worth noting that the UMASS schedule does not reflect this change. https://umassathletics.com/sp...

Re: Boston College

I totally agree about sustaining natural/close regional rivalries. TV and BIg 5 conferences have drifted this far away.

It's just lamentable.

Re: Boston College

I am not a fan of a coach getting canned in the middle of COVID, did his team just quit on him?

Except for WLax, BC is in way over its head in the ACC.

Re: A one question lax quiz

He's eligible, but there are a lot fewer slots in the pros with MLL gone and PLL only taking on the Cannons. We'll see.

My days at UM were in mid-70's with 18-year-old drinking, etc. The taps were always open at the frats, and beer cans came from old coke machines at 25 cents per.

Re: All sports paused for 14 days!

UNH Durham is raising its warning level to "Orange" - no F2F teaching, no sports crowds, etc.. Have not seen their sports close, yet.

Theta Chi has been on the edge for 40 years+. Green beer on St. Paddy's day on the way to my 8 o'clock class in SBA = chug chug chug.

The Army game slot next week is now a game at Virginia, who look very strong.

Hotel space is already being used to house students under quarantine who do not have the option of going home.

i did not know him, but I highly valued his understated personality and incisive color comments during broadcasts of UMass Lax games.

Re: 2021 Men's Lax schedule just announced

Thanks for the clarification.

It'll be a weird/changing season as it has been for Mhockey and MBB.
