Re: State of the Progam

It’s great to have good students and solid character people in the program. However if the results are 1-11 and big time blowouts, all the posturing by Bamford will not register. Results matter. Well, considering we’ve not won with borderline students (not all, but the APR sucked), might as well tr...

Re: State of the Progam

Word from Fight Massachusetts on Twitter is that it was $400K+. Can't blame him for turning that down. https://twitter.com/FightMA247/status/1215395488175984640 Wow, coach on the worst defense in the history of FBS football with DBs that couldn't tackle and be out of position from the beginning to ...

Re: State of the Progam

Definitely money because he was the co-DC and made 125k; while Tommy Restivo the other co-DC makes 195k. A DB coach in the ACC easily makes over 200-300k. Not really sad to see him go...

Re: State of the Progam

Check your email, folks. A long email went out from Ryan Bamford on the state of the program. I appreciate the effort by Bamford, but to me that email reeks, REEKS, of desperation! I guess Bell is not able to do this himself, like most head coaches do at the high school and college level do at the ...

Not particular happy with the announcers. They are more interested in BSing about Akron than letting us know who is scoring for UMass.
The male announcer was a huge MAC homer when UMass played in the conference for football. Had to mute him like I did for football games.

Re: 2020 Season

It’s going to be another very long season. Listening to the Plant the Flag podcast about recruiting day and Bell is stressing he needs another class or two. Bamford has said similar things. So I’m going to believe them that this season isn’t going to be UMass’ year either. Maybe 2022? :? To me this...

Re: State of the Progam

Think we all have concerns, but given the number of scholarships to offer, have np with offer. Offering A QB whose other offers are from tiny D2 or NAIA schools is not the road to FBS success... Brito was being recruited by those FBS powerhouses of Morgan State, Austin Peay, Western Illinois and Ma...

Re: State of the Progam

Looking at the last two QBs we offered, it appears neither has another FBS 𝐎𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐫, and one of them appears to have FCS and D2/3 interest. New: "2* JUCO QB Kyle Lindquist picks up a #UMass offer on his OV this weekend" We are competing with the South Dakota School of Mines. Might be a diamond in the ...

Why is Bell bringing Pro Style QB's for campus visits if he wants to play no huddle hurry up offense?
His recruit Brito was a pro style QB and we saw how well that went. I've been watching and wondering the same thing. I guess in 4 - 5 years they will turn into a RPO QB...

Re: State of the Progam

There is no reason that we should be this bad. Liberty college is in a Bowl game in their second year of FBS. What we need is a good coach. While I am not giving up yet on Walt Bell yet, this year was certainly about as bad as it gets. I contacted Bamford and when I told him that 3 or 4 wins next y...

I agree. Max Page was told to shut up from what I heard from some very influential sources.

Wow, we had someone in the top 700. Click on any Massachusetts and show all the salaries and goes back to 2012 or so. Which is ahead of a lot of coaches from P5 teams!
