Re: Massachusetts Athletics Branding

Agree we need a decision and consistency. A key part of branding is see a color make an association e.g. Tennessee orange, Carolina blue etc . The red tones make that association difficult since look like Harvard and BC. IMHO deep maroon is the color I as an alumnus associate with he University of ...

Re: State of the program

Also while I have a slight issue with airing out a lot of internal issues to the public, I have nothing but respect for Luwane. I wish his senior year went the way we all hoped it would.

Re: State of the program

From the brief segments I've listened to this podcast, it comes off to me as a lot of players that are mostly concerned about their own numbers/success rather than the team success. Maybe that stems from having so many transfers coming in, I don't know.

Agree, I have an old school Sweatshirt that has UM on the front, and Massachusetts across the shoulders in back.
I saw one of those on eBay for $120 :shock: maybe once I graduate and have some money I'll pull the trigger on it :lol:

Re: Gorilla Sports Gear - order by Jan 20th

Those t-shirts are exactly what the bookstore should be selling for all of the sports teams. Love the use of "Massachusetts" over "UMass" as well.

Go Gorillas!

Not interested in going down the USF-UConn path....

With you 100% on this, however I do think the UMass-UCONN rivalry is way more compelling and natural than USF-UCONN.

Re: Massachusetts Athletics Branding

Everything wrong about our branding, accessibility to merchandise and inability to get our color right, summed up in one post from a weekend trip to campus. Amazing. Our branding and consistency across merchandise is some of the worst I've ever seen. Totally different variations of colors, school n...

Re: future scheduling talk

We should have a trophy for the UConn game and possibly down the road for the BC game. Maybe we just need to beat UConn a few more times to make it happen, but I'd love to see some sort of prize both teams can play for. This might be especially important for UMass considering our independent status....

Re: Massachusetts Athletics Branding

Anyone know why our apparel is so bad? I mean even D3 schools have better options than we do. My personal view is that the bookstore has way too many mediocre items and few, if any, items I'd actually buy. Is it a problem with Adidas? The people who run the bookstore? anyone have insights on this?

It's crazy to me how red our "maroon" is nowadays. Looking at all the pictures from kids on their OV's to campus over the weekend and all I can see is our bright red "maroon"
