A pep talk for the masses from the Sports Psychic

Some of my past predictions 1987: UMass Hoops will one day make it to the Final Four 1990: Bill Parcels will be the Pats coach and win SB with them (close enough.. haha) 1998: Umass football will win the National title... made this one after being slotted as 11 seed 2003: Sox will lose to yanks in h...

Re: future scheduling talk

I could see us voiding the series after 2021(the honorable thing to do would be to at least given them two return games) .. who knows, maybe we have a conference invite by then.

Re: State of the Progam

In regards to Coach Bell, it is idiotic not to give the guy at least a few years to see if he can turn this ship around. That said, since our defense is so bad he needs to can the hurry up offense. We need to kill the clock as much as possible and start calling more running plays. Curtis should have...

Re: The flagship...

The flagship has moved into the top 20 Public schools (I only count those that play division 1 football). The 20's will be remembered as a good decade for our sports programs (including football).

Re: future scheduling talk

Jim, that is part of what is going to happen and it will hurt schools who are left out because the days of 85 scholarships will be over too.. It will be unlimited. The goal for UMass is to find a way into the second tier so the basketball program will be included. The NCAA's days as currently consti...

Re: State of the Progam

Meanwhile, the US News 2019-2020 school rankings came out and among Public schools that play Div 1 football UMass Is now ranked 19th. I have to believe this matters.

Re: State of the Progam

Its always darkest before the Dawn. Sure, Saturday sucked huge donkey balls and we are looking at 0-12 squarely in the face (although I think we will sneak one W in), but from what I have read Bell could be on his way to getting to best recruiting class in our history. Maybe he can find the right QB...

ARMY

This is the program we need to emulate. Army will be in running to go to BCS game (I assume they are included in top G5 getting bid). Army does have the advantage that they are going to get kids with stronger work ethic, smarter, and more disciplined. But, that doesn't mean we cant compete for those...

Re: Game 2: Southern Illinois - 9/7/2019

I think our offense will be decent this year. Yesterday they left 28+ pts on the board. 1. first drive should have just ran up the middle 2. Johnson dropped likely TD 3. West missed Horn for likely TD 4. Johnson's idiocy cost them on first drive of 3rd qtr The problem all year is going to be our fro...

Re: Game 2: Southern Illinois - 9/7/2019

National Champs 2034! Settle down everybody.. sure we totally blow right now and we were going to blow this year no matter the coach is. I would have hired a defensive head coach, but am going to give Bell at least two years (and next year he just needs to show substantial improvement) before I star...
