Re: Alcohol

In the end, UMass sports are very reasonably priced, but as things loosen up I hope that the food choices improve. Too much salt and fat. The department does a respectable job to to engage fans and improve fan relations, but they miss the mark badly on this one. For a university that loves to tout ...

Should have watched the women's game tonight instead of the men. Look at 'em go, 11 in a row. Nice!
I chose the women over the men tonight and glad I did. First women's game I've watched in a few seasons.

So the 1-game suspension for Ngalakulondi for "violating team rules" has now turned into 4 straight games with her missing from the bench. Anyone have any clue as to what is going on? Do reporters even ask questions anymore?

Re: Makar in NHL

Has there been any info on when the Banner Raising, etc. will take place on Friday? Before the game, during one of the intermissions or after the game? According to this article from a month ago it will be before the game. https://umassathletics.com/news/2019/11/5/massachusetts-hockey-to-recognize-...

Re: Makar in NHL

From Coach Carvel's weekly email: "On Friday night [December 6th] Cale Makar will be returning to the Mullins Center for the unveiling of yet another banner that will forever hang from the rafters recognizing him as the 2019 Hobey Baker Winner! It will be great to have Cale back in the building!"

Re: UMass dining is #1 again!

R&G, same here. I thought the food was great. Can't imagine what it's like now I also thought the food was pretty good in the 1980's, but then I went to Hampshire in Southwest before a Hockey game last winter. For me it was like entering the Chocolate Room in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Re: Jim Dietz retires

Yes, it does. Jim Helling is the sports psychology guy that supposedly got fired. However, that Dietz was forced out doesn't surprise me as his salary was pretty high (mostly because of his longevity) for a coach of a non-revenue sport. Moreover, members of the women's rowing team were pretty dismay...

Re: Jim Dietz retires

Word on campus is that he was forced out and that the following opening came about because the former sport psychologist was fired after had taken up the cause Jim's athletes who were trying to figure out what happened.

Makar outplayed Fox and Schuldt couldn't get his team past AIC. I can't imagine Cale not winning.

Re: NCAA Tournament 2019

I bought the two-session package and I will stay for the final no matter what happens Thursday, having spent $300 for three games. The more tickets we sell in the UMass allotment, the better it looks to the NCAA. How do we access the UMass allotment? What sections are UMass fans in? https://umassat...

Are people buying Thursday tickets only or going for the all sessions?
Due to family and financial considerations I have to wait to see if they make it to the final.

Re: Should McCall be given a third year

During his first year I seem to remember him removing two of his players (starters?),for shoplifting. There was a joke going around then that Umass led the nation in steals. I think Umass is making a mistake by keeping McCall and it is time to cut our losses. What would define an acceptable improve...
