Re: Game 8: vs App St.

If anyone ever posts on this board that the crowds in Amherst are better than the Gillette crowds I've had enough experience to call you an absolute liar. This stadium / atmosphere absolutely sucks.

Re: Game 3: ODU

My buddies and I purchased a spot on Stadium Drive with our season tickets and we basically witnessed the mass exodus of students come right by our tailgating spot. When I went to the bathroom there were about 8 male students in line and I asked them what was going on. 1) They were livid that they w...

Too bad we didn't stay in the MAC. We may have been able to say we held Kareem Hunt under 250 yards.
As a matter of fact, we did, twice. 2014 Kareem rushed for 198. 2015 he put up 90 but we still gave up 265 rushing yards.

^ Kevin Sumlin could be available, Tom Herman, too...and its only week heading into week #2....and that's just Texas schools!!
Kevin Sumlin would make more $$$ as a Wide Receivers coach at 90% of the P5 schools than he would as our HC.

Surprised there wasnt a joint announcement but it must be coming soon. Can't see any reason ESPN wouldnt pick it up and throw it on ESPN2 or ESPNU.

Re: 2017 Season

^^ Is that based simply off projections? We had a prolific passing attack last year with Ford but I think that projection might be due to our offensive tempo, which has been a hot-button topic from the folks who watch games week in and week out. With that said, I wonder if Pinkham will give Whipple ...

Re: Football Broadcasting/Distribution

Any deal that gives us the ability to stream games online and also leave the door open for syndicated TV viewing (via CSN, NESN, CBSSports etc...) is preferred. I'm assuming that is what the administration is working towards. At the same time, I find it shocking that ESPN or CBS Sports wont pick up ...

Re: Game 1 (2017) Hawaii

This is a really hard schedule this year. That's all I am going to say. Agreed. It's much harder than we could have predicted when it was put together a couple years ago. That's why the first 3 games are crucial, you can make a good argument that aside from Maine those are the easiest games on the ...

Re: Game 1 (2017) Hawaii

^ Awesome. I think that rule is bogus and needs to be looked at. We got screwed by it 2 years ago when we started in Colorado in "week 2" but glad we can get an extra week of practice in this year.

Does UMass get to start training camp a week earlier because this game is technically played a week prior to the start of the CFB reg season?

Re: McGuirk Upgrade

Related to the new stadium, UMass Gives (the annual school fundraising effort) is currently going on and the Athletic Department is currently blowing away their $25k goal. Last year, just over $6,000 was donated to the department. This year, not even 12 hours in, theyre up over $40k. Pretty amazing....

Re: KAEO DeJon Jarreau (2016)

I disagree. Before DJ got injured, he played a a very different game. He started getting back into that form at the door of the season. His court vision and what he wanted to do was hindered by the lack of an offense or other players capable of making plays. The amount of missed screens, dropped pa...
