Re: State of the Progam

It's up and in on Bamford, a swing and a miss; strike one. There is no sustainability for UMass without a conference. I pretty much agree with this. And, unless they schedule annual games with BC, UConn, maybe Temple, there will be no rivalries to spark fan interest. Definitely need BC, UCONN, and ...

Re: McGuirk Upgrade

Replying to @mattengdahl @mlocapo @_RyanAmes Find $80-100m & we will gladly build a new stadium. And don’t blame the state or the school that they won’t do it - they have supported ~ $80m in athletics projects the last 6 yrs. A new stadium isn’t what we need to build a winning program. It would hel...

Re: Total Wins

For what it's worth ESPN's (I think fivethirtyeight) FPI still has us with 5.7 to 6.3 wins. ESPN now at 4.3 to 7.7 wins. I think the team has been performing so poorly compared to expectations there's so much volatility in that prediction. Reaaaaaly broad confidence interval there. How is it possib...

Re: Fire the OC

https://dailycollegian.com/2018/09/ryan-bamford-discusses-state-of-umass-athletics/ I would say this, when you look at a football schedule and as an independent, I tried to build this schedule in a way where we could go out and really figure out if we could acquit ourselves and get ourselves prepare...

Re: Fire the OC

^ I would say that rarely happens because why would a kid take an FCS offer over an FBS offer under any circumstances. No, an FCS head coach would need some recruiting experience as an assistant an FBS school. Jim Tressel made the transition from Youngstown St. to Ohio State but he was tied in to t...

Re: QB Platooning

@JoshWalfishDHG Andrew Ford and Ross Comis DID NOT practice today. Whipple said they’re day-to-day. Will update again Wednesday. 9:35 PM - 17 Sep 2018 Great... looks like our two QB system has put us on our 3rd and 4th string instead of our 2nd or 3rd string. I'm all in favor of utilizing different...

Re: Fire the OC

^ If he and his staff at an FCS school were able get commitments from kids with FBS offers... wow. :shock: Excluding transfers and maybe the Ivy League does that even happen?

Re: Fire the OC

^ best suggestion I've heard so far for a midseason termination would be the promotion of Charles Walker to interim. His guys are the only unit left who seem to be willing to play for him. And with his background in defense he might know what to do about the Pinkham situation.

Re: Fire the OC

^^ I've heard the suggestion of Charles Walker for interim coach. Given that so far special teams is the only unit that has actually improved from last year... that might be an indicator his guys are still on board. Since he has a defensive background he might know what to do about the Pinkham situa...

Re: Head coaching options

^ If we can get Mike Houston we should do that right now. But his contract with JMU stipulates a $500k buyout if he signs with a G5 FBS school before Jan 2020.
