Re: 2020 Season

The fact that UMass is being a follower rather than a leader in this situation is somewhat reprehensible. I think the biggest fear that schools like UMass have of cancelling football is the fact that the old line of "alumni support will go down the toilet if there is no football" will be proven fals...

Re: 2020 Season

The fact that the NCAA is willing to risk lives simply because of the money involved in football says everything you need to know about their guiding principles. That UMass is playing along is just as bad in my opinion.

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

We also had a higher average attendance when we were FCS during the 2000s because the quality of the UMass football product was far superior to present day. We’d be up near 20k per game if we were even half decent. Nobody wants to watch terrible football whether it’s fbs or fcs. I agree 100% and th...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

I think using Buffalo and Temple are fair comparisons as well. Don't disagree at all. According to the NCAA Buffalo averaged 18,380 in attendance in 2018 Temple's average attendance was 28,470 I think (total opinion here) that college sports are much bigger in Philly then in Massachusetts. But for o...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

We should be striving to be like a Penn State (sans the child diddling cover up). I believe in a UMass Football program that can elevate our exposure nationally to places we’ve never seen. Take your small time thinking back to places like UNH or Vermont I’m not having it. My Penn State comment refe...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

Just a couple questions for those who think that eventually with the right hire that we could run a successful football program. 1) What is the most successful FBS program in the northeast? 2)How does that schools facilities compare to UMass? 3)What would it cost to get our facilities on par with th...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

I don’t mean to be crass but I have two words for the whiny babies that keep wanting to drop fbs football. “Fuck” and “you”. UMass is one of the elite institutions in the northeast when it comes to size, quality of education, alumni base, and overall brand name. We should be striving to be like a P...

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.

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

At some point it might time to admit the problem is not the coaches (past or present), or the AD.

Maybe the problem is the program.

Re: YOUR NEW MENS HOOP COACH: PAT KELSEY

After years of lurking this makes me have to post. Just a scum bag move by Kelsey and clearly an incredibly poorly handled hiring by the administration. They made a fool of themselves and the University by rushing all of this out. And the website still showing Kelsey stuff is just another nut punch....

Re: Game 6: Miami of Ohio

I know everyone's pissed off and frustrated as well and I am too. And I don't blame anyone who wants to take a break from this team for awhile. I do too. No need to give ourselves a heart attack following this shit. But it's going to get better. Give Whip a chance to get a full recruiting season an...

A great modest and caring man who understood what college athletics is really supposed to be about, and a damn fine coach at that.

He will be missed.

Also, I appreciate decrying someone crossing the line by calling them a "douchebag" and "jackass". That is certainly the proper, mature response. Never called you either of those things. I said it is possible to make critical points without being a negative douchebag. If you felt that label applied...
