Re: Game 2: Southern Illinois - 9/7/2019

So predictable, ok start then meltdowns. The coach came in late, but recruiting to a dumpster fire will not be easy.

Re: Umass and UConn Conference USA

I am not a fan of Falwell, nor by extension Liberty. With our 'limbo' status as an independent, IMO, UMass needs to be realistic and schedule who is available. If folks feel strongly, let them picket. And then, count the ticket buyers/tV watchers vs. protestors. My guess is that not enough folks car...

Re: 2019 Season

While it is great that UMass has a tv deal, doesn't that impact folks actually attending the game? We'll be able to figure out the economics based on the quality and frequency of ads. If we see a lot of 'UMass hotel 'ads, my bet is that UMass is losing a lot of live bodies in the stadium.

Bamford on UConn Changes

Bamford has been chatting with the UCONN A.D.

Liberty should be shunned based on their LGBQ aspects, IMO.

Re: 2020 Season

Thanks.

NJIT is nearly the weakest team in D1 Lax. It adds nothing to our SOS nor RPI. Harvard is going to be interesting as rebuilding.

I'd like to see NJIT removed in the future for another legit Ivy, like Cornell or Penn, or perhaps Loyola, or Navy in Patriot League.

A take from the MAC side of things, with a bit from AAC (Navy) as well.

Re: 2020 recruiting

North Carolina has so many recruits playing time will be an issue, see transfer Chris Gray from BU. What is happening now with the NCAA transfer pool and immediate play the next athletic year means nothing is certain. Chase Scanlan from Loyola, a top tier first year, has just entered the pool, big l...

Re: UConn back to the Big East?

IMO, so many traditional rivalries in college sports have been torn asunder by greed and avarice, especially in the P5, and the other D1 FB/BB conferences. UMass is not alone. Our situation is stranger by being in 4 'conferences' - A10, CAA, HE, and "Independent FB". And A10 lost some longtime rival...
