Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

There's nothing cheap about the cost of a UMass education. I just heard $130,000 for 4 years on WBZ or WCRN this morning. In fact, it's NOT much less. UMass is one of the most expensive public universities, not the cheapest, that is not in the AAU. According to College Board, average in-state publi...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

Umass has spent 10 seasons getting kicked around in every way possible.The jump in apps is due to financial pressures in parents,students and the college debt accrued. UMass offers a very good to exclent education with much for much less. F There's nothing cheap about the cost of a UMass education....

Anyone who says UMass would have over 42,000 applications as a FCS or no football school is just totally wrong. Don't tell me it's a coincidence that applications doubled when we went FBS.
Over what time period was that jump?
I just told you: since 2011/2012. Look at UMass' own records.

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. Dropping the sport or dropping back down to FCS would make sense if the administration didn't want a USNWR #64 uni...

Re: State of the Progam

^^^^^ Meehans comments were not that shocking to me, he’s well versed in passing the buck as a lifetime MA pol. UMass system presidents have consistently undermined the real and only UMass for decades. This is just another case of that. It’s annoying but predictable from that office. Move the physi...

Re: Dan Shaughnessy

Curly headed girlfriend is a tool, no doubt. But Marty Meehans comments were actually very supportive of football. Shaunessy was very snarky and he obviously has an agenda but I like Meehan as president and even though the football program is a joke, we will have it around for many years to come to ...

Re: Whip Gone?

^^^ I do love how you continue to fabricate that the increase in applications to attend UMass is related to moving up to FBS. I’m not going to waste my time discussing why out of state applications are up, but can assure you it has little or nothing to do with FBS football. I want UMass to succeed ...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

While big boy football has been an unmitigated disaster, dropping the sport would be nearly impossible. It would cause significant issues re: title IX, and the school would have to add several male sports or cut some women sports in order to stay in compliance. It’s could be done, but it wouldn’t b...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

Not sure how you can say this wasn't a brutally honest assessment. This was the most mishandled "move up" any of us have ever seen. I've grown tired of hearing how well get some great recruits because they'll be offered playing time. Blah blah blah.... So you think we should move back down? That is...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

I understand the NCAA is pretty lax with the 15,000 attendance rule, but y'all I don't see how they'd grant waivers to three schools with football stadiums well below 15k in capacity. (UNH 11k, Maine 10k, URI 6.5k) In addition to those three, while Holy Cross meets the capacity requirements I don't...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

I posted this on September 15 after the Charlotte loss (0-3). I called Bell Molnar 2.0 and was admonished by the other board. I predicted 0-12 but Akron was a high school team. We are worse than all FBS, almost all FCS, most D2 and some D3 teams. The coach is so damn stubborn with that stupid hurry ...

Re: Sports Psychic: The switch will be flipped next year?

Timing is always the hardest part for us mentally talented individuals, but I believe there Is a strong chance the switch will indeed be flipped next year. Sure we may still only win 4 games next year, maybe 5, and maybe even 6, but the record wont matter next year because everything changes. The o...

Re: Game 8: vs UConn - 10/26/2019 (Homecoming Weekend)

I'm not a fan of the hurry-up and I do happen to believe it is leaving our defense gassed. But honestly, even if this defense was operating at peak performance on every snap, is there any evidence to suggest they'd be able to allow 33.4 fewer points per game? Because that's the reality. Our average...
