I'm not sure what to say, but it's not a good look.

Woah! What an amazing TD catch by Tajae just now against the Saints... his second TD of the day! Nice to see him having a great game!

Re: State of the Progam

https://commonwealthmagazine.org/education/umass-football-thrown-for-big-losses/ I agree with the comment at the end. Nobody would even be talking about this if the team was winning, or even substantially more competitive. I'm sorry, but $4 million dollars is hardly "bleeding red ink" or an "enormo...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

Just a question for the group. Is there anything that could ever convince certain members of this board that getting out of FBS football would be the right move? I am honestly curious. For me personally, there would have to be an argument that having FBS football was truly hurting the University in...

Awesome! We'd already gone to bed by the time this happened. Great catch and some great cuts in that run to get the TD!

Re: Sports Psychic: The switch will be flipped next year?

If you are a recruit, why would you want to come to UMass? Because UMass is a fantastic school where you can get a great education, which is what most of the kids should be aiming for with their scholarship opportunities. Also because it's unlikely that you'll sit for three years behind others in y...

Re: Week 8 Vs. BYE

I'm afraid to check the score, did we win? Just kidding. :wink: I hope the rest and some extra practice gets them ready for UCANT. I'm actually really looking forward to the game, and we have a busy homecoming weekend schedule. We're even sticking around Monday because my wife is giving a talk to th...

Re: State of the Progam

I didn't watch any of the FIU game, but in the Akron game, we ran to the line with no huddle, and for the vast majority of time took a look at the defense, then Curtis checked out and looked to the sidelines where a play was signaled in on a sign that was held up. The ball was typically hiked with a...

Re: GAME 6 FIU 10/45/19

Would love to cover in this game. FIU has been unspectacular this season, particularly against the run. I say try to keep it largely on the ground, use Curtis' mobility, and try to contain their rush. Not expecting a win, but with some effort and success in these areas I could see us keeping it resp...

Re: GAME 5 9/28 AKRON

We're number 1 29 !!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL! Surprised and pleased by today's showing! Two things I particularly liked; the energy on the sideline, and the way they used the "hurry up" today. I like getting to the line quick and locking the defense, then getting a look at their set then calling the play. ...

Re: A pep talk for the masses from the Sports Psychic

I think being competitive for a bowl by 2021 time is a bit premature unless we get some fairly substantial transfer talent, particularly on defense. I think 2022 is a more realistic timetable given where we are right now, and I'd hope we'd at least be looking at the potential for 5-7 wins at that st...

Re: The flagship...

Maryland has about a dozen schools in its university system. Some, like UM Baltimore County and UM Eastern Shore use the University of Maryland qualifier. Others like Frostburg State and Coppin State use the "State" qualifier. Still, others like Towson and Salisbury leave out the "State" part. Whil...

Re: 2019 Season

Also agree with IV! I went into this season with really low expectations (2-10 was what my head told me). At this point, it won't be that good, and we probably won't look good in losing, but I'm still supporting the team and the school (though sadly will have to miss Saturday's game due to another c...

Other than the California schools, when have you heard someone refer to those schools as such? It's Michigan. It's UNC. It's Wisconsin. It's Illinois. It's Texas. It's Ohio State. It's Penn State. It's Rutgers (why the hell is Rutgers hyphenated??!?!?) It's Maryland. Never, except in the case where...
