Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

Bamford attempted to explain the blackout: https://twitter.com/UMassADBamford/status/1163539979689181186 For wanting to avoid "documenting our every move", they're already off to a bad start. We've already seen two tweets from the official account about the trip, and another two from McCall. Also st...

Fair point, and I did see that YSU's leading scorer in one of the Calgary games was Second-Team in the Horizon last year.

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

Here's something of a barometer to what we might expect with the VI games: Youngstown State https://www.ysusports.com/sports/mbkb/2019-20/schedule They played Calgary twice and won both. We'll play them once. They played the USVI "national" team, and won. We also play them. YSU was 12-20 last season.

okay, we have games next week. Is anyone else paying attention?
I'm trying to pay attention, but UM is making it really hard. They still haven't fucking said when our games are.

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

^ That's the thing, sounds like we're not going to have anyone there but the team & coaches. The media relations role is currently vacant, Walfish isn't going to report, and sounds like Burnham isn't going to broadcast/stream. Big void. By contrast, in the Bahamas 2006 trip, all three of those roles...

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

^ Good catch. I went to their site to capture the URL, but didn't think to look at their schedule.

And Youngstown State beats us on streaming audio. Sigh.

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

The Department is staying active on social media. Hell, how many strongman videos have we seen over the last few weeks?

Skip producing one of those and you've got plenty of time to get the word out about the VI trip.

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

Stadium compiled a list of all foreign trips , and we're showing to start on 8/19. That's just two weeks away. Not to have any information announced at this point is getting bizarre. I know not many fans would go to this, but I was considering it. I went down to The Bahamas in 2006 when they did th...

Re: 2019-20 season

Rhody has a pretty good non-conference schedule: https://twitter.com/RhodyMBB/status/1155932657718403072?s=20 Yeah, pretty decent slate. Enough names to balance out the gimmes. Alabama in Kingston is a return game from Rhody playing in AL in 2017-18. Going to WV is a payback for WV playing URI at M...

Re: 2019-20 season

^ Walfish is no slouch. He hasn't quite filled Vautour's shoes yet at the DHG, but that was a high bar. And Touri is raising the stakes from the amateur side also.

Re: 2019-20 season

The game at Harvard is set for Saturday, 12/7, per our old friend Steve Hewitt.
https://twitter.com/steve_hewitt/status ... 9146719234

This is good news for the UM fan base that will, again, take over Lavietes Pavilion.

Steve also says Harvard will pay us back with a game in Amherst next year.
