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 still think that as FCS football continues to make less sense financially, more schools will be looking to make the move up. With that being said, UMass should be pushing to bring back a new (and improved) Yankee Conference as either a FBS football-only or an all-sports conference. In a perfect wo...

Re: Massachusetts Athletics Branding

Have to say, I'm very pleased with the new uniform reveals we've seen this year. Really a big fan of the "traditional" look of the football and basketball uniforms and feels like we are taking our place as the commonwealth's team. Hope they're here to stay.

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: Vote for Cale for the Hobey Baker

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!

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...
