Re: 2019 Season

I’ve seen some people on this board make comparisons between UMass’ defense this season and UConn’s defense in 2018. Here are the numbers: 2018 UConn - 617 yds per game (282 pass, 335 rush), 50.4 ppg. 2018 UMass - 485 yds per game (210 pass, 275 rush), 42.9 ppg. 2019 UMass as of today - 556 yds per...

Re: State of the Progam

My only question is, if you don't have the talent or depth to run what you want, why do coaches ( not specifically UMass') radically change things when they come in instead of gradually transitioning things until the pieces are in place? They implement the system that they know. The coaches they kn...

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 const...

Re: Game 3: @Charlotte - 9/14/2019

Using just the 247 site, our recruiting rankings are 10-15 spots higher after going independent than in the MAC. Our best ever recruiting class was the year we went independent. 2016. I’d rather play BYU and in a few years Missouri in McGuirk on a Saturday in November instead of ball state on a Wed...

Re: Game 3: @Charlotte - 9/14/2019

I call b.s.- the quality of recruits has gone down since leaving the MidAmerica conference. And, recruits have left or transferred in droves. Just look at our current state of affairs. We cannot tackle, nor block. We have 5 QB's, or effectively none. Here is our remaining schedule, https://www.espn...

Re: Game 3: @Charlotte - 9/14/2019

^ Regression? How is that even possible? :? :lol: Being independent. Make basketball independent and let me know if you'd think it would not affect recruiting and potential after 3-4 years. We are now playing with almost all players recruited when we have no conference home. Being independent actua...

I made the mistake of somehow thinking that this was on an actual ESPN network. But when your team is number 130 out of 130 you have to watch it alone on your cell phone in a darkened room as punishment.

More than feel bad. His diatribe May be an indictment of the AD. Not sure yet.

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

I have to speculate that one of the reasons West won the job is because of his character. The team is young and Bell knew this was going to be a tough year. West at the helm can help keep the locker room up. It is 100% character. UMass coaches praise the hell out of this guy for being the ultimate ...

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

My point was not just focused on qb. Thinking about last year, if Barr was not granted a sixth year and averaged 40 tackles per game, how many games would UMASS have won???? Who was being brought up behind him? I think Bell needs to get about 15 players from the transfer portal to get some experien...

Re: State of the Progam

All of the comments about being a fan through thick or thin are great, but the thread is State of the Program; and that state is dismal, with no evidence that that will change any time soon, if ever. We're worse than I anticipated this season (and I predicted a 2-10 season), and no question things ...

Re: State of the Progam

Guys I have moved on from this train wreck. I went to UM in the mid 200'0's when we used to get pissed off about missing the playoffs, where being a national finalist against App State was not acceptable. This program has pissed me off so much that for the first time BC football will air in my hous...

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

Game 2. We might have some rain for this one as well depending on what direction this hurricane goes in. Hopefully the team, especially the D, can build some confidence in this game. The weather report out here has low to mid 70s, breezy and sunny. They have said the hurricane will not impact weste...
