Re: 2021 Season

If covid isn’t under control does the BC game move to McGuirk?

Re: Game 3: FAU

We’re a decade into the FBS transition and there is no improvement. It’s depressing.

Re: 2020-2021 Season

It’s a good question. I don’t know the answer.

Union cancelled their season. ECAC down to four schools. One of them might get an autobid just by being the last to cancel, assuming there is an NCAA tournament :(

Re: 2020-2021 Season

Over on USCHO they’re saying the UMass game at BU will be played at Walter Brown. Makes sense. Why open up Agganis if no one is gonna be there? I’ve never seen a game at Walter Brown so it would have been nice to be able to go. Oh well. Makes me wonder if UMass should/will use the practice rink for ...

Re: 2020-2021 Season

RPI is not playing this season. That’s 9 teams-about 15% of a very small D1 hockey pool. WCHA probably stronger without dealing with UAA as they’ve made it very clear they don’t want anything to do with flying to Anchorage anyway. AHA has a scheduling agreement with LIU so they basically cancel out ...

Re: 2020-2021 Season

UAA cancelled their season. This was gonna be their last as they were cutting the program anyways, so RIP Seawolves.

By my count I believe we are up to 8 of the 61 teams that have said no thanks to playing so far.

Re: 2020-2021 Season

Ivy League reportedly cancelled all winter sports including hockey. ECAC is a mess.

Re: 2020-2021 Season

RIT just cancelled their 2020-2021 season. ECAC teams one by one cancelled their post season participation what seems like forever ago last March and that started the ball (puck?) rolling on everyone cancelling.

Re: Game 2D: @ Marshall - 11/7 @2:30pm

Couldn't agree more except Whipple had us quasi-respectable at 4-8, 4-8. 2017 was our best year since the move-up. Bell is absolutely killing this program and, truthfully, I would be in shock if we are still playing FBS in 7 or 8 years. Whipple is a tremendous coach. Definitely the best UMass is ha...

Re: Game 2D: @ Marshall - 11/7 @2:30pm

The fact the program can get a good schedule as an independent and has made serious upgrades to facilities means Bamford hasn’t killed the program. This is the toughest place in all of FBS to be successful. No conference. No fan support. Old stadium. No bowl tie ins. Not in a recruiting fertile plac...

Re: Game 2D: @ Marshall - 11/7 @2:30pm

I’m someone who as a student went to more football games at UMass than any other sport combined. I’ve had season tickets to football since I graduated and have rarely missed a home game. I’m an on again-off again member of the gridiron club. I haven’t been to a basketball game in the Mullins Center ...

Re: NCAA Regional in Springfield

How does cohosting work? If both teams qualify are they both placed there? Neither? The one higher in the pairwise? I know when conferences host no one is automatically placed there, not even the conference championship.

Re: 2020 Season

Would be pretty funny if the team didn’t play a regular season game and got a bowl invite.

Re: College Hockey retracting? UAB drops sport

St. Thomas is moving to D1. So that makes two teams adding and maybe on subtracting. I donated to UAH. I’ll donate to UAA too Id given the opportunity.
