Re: new goal song

Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t the band have to play royalties to use music? I believe the band pays a publisher for the arrangement (one-time fee of maybe a few hundred dollars). However, they don't pay the record label to play it. If the band writes the sheet music themselves, I don't belie...

Re: new goal song

Obviously I don't condone pedophiles, but the song itself is harmless. If this is about royalties then play a cover. Better yet have our great ice band play it as they did in Boston, Manchester, and Buffalo last year.

He was also exposed to a P5 operation and how it should look.
A kid died in training under the his boss at Maryland. It was after he left and that's nothing on Bell, but I don't think we want to look like that operation.

Re: GAME 6 FIU 10/45/19

Zoo Umass is not getting applications because of our athletics. If anything we are getting less because it has been so bad. I agree, in general, UMass' bad athletics don't draw applicants. But similarly our bad athletics also do not detract from UMass applicants. Well maybe a minuscule minority of ...

Re: State of the Progam

^ That's one way to quickly devalue a bachelor degree. Of course, it is exactly the opposite I.V. As usual. It is basic supply and demand. The demand will go up, not down, as prices go down, but the supply/available slots to attend is basically constant, + OR - 5%. What will happen, given the incre...

Re: State of the Progam

If I were in student government today, and I was in undergrad, I'd start bitching to state reps and senators. The entire $48M athletics expenditure is equivalent to 3.5% of UMass' budget. 1% of the system's budget. 0.1% of the state budget. And obviously the contribution from each of those entities...

Re: Massachusetts Athletics Branding

Hasn't it always been 202 C (at least for academics)? To your point, the problem is with enforcement (or the lack thereof).

Re: State of the Progam

I don't understand this P5, Top 10 or bust nonsense.

Not to come off as elitist or whatever, but if the Eastern Michigans and Lousiana Monroes of the world can sponsor FBS football, then certainly state flagship of Massachusetts should be able to as well.

When some of the "high character" guys start messing up it shows that the something stinks in the program.
Yeah, it stinks getting blown out by terrible teams to be 0-4.

Re: 2019 Season

If transfer rates increase, then the NCAA should increase the 25 per year limit. Or unrestrict it altogether.

Re: State of the Progam

In reality, it’s honestly not that bad being an independent. I thought it was gonna be the end of the world but the AD has done a good job managing it. And I think UConn joining makes it better and easier for us TBH. Maybe Temple could be next to join us. Don’t they have a basketball team to protec...

Re: State of the Progam

I think y'all are missing a major factor in comparing UMass to BC or even UConn. BC is a P5. They have an expectation to at least make a bowl every year against another P5 program. They strive to be in the top half of the ACC, the conference of the defending national champion. They hope for regular ...
