UMASS Football jersey


https://www.ebay.com/itm/132761128871?s ... 1555.l2649
Reminds me of the fan jersey the U Store once sold - a terrible version of the UMass hockey jersey that the team never wore.

^ He may have been forced out, but he was probably gone anyway. He got a better position as the LSU system president. http://blog.nola.com/times-picayune/200 ... _pres.html
He eventually came back to UMass as a history professor.

Re: Campus Master Plan Explorer

Say what you wish about Chancellor Lombardi (Grey Wolves, Hyphen, etc.), but quite a bit of that construction was either secured and/or completed during his tenure. He saw the state of the campus and planned for the future... or he understood that the Commonwealth had quite a bit of bonding ability.

Did I see where we are 23 point underdogs for the game on Sat? Did not know that the Dukes have that good a FB team.
Free advice - stay out of the sportsbook the next time you go to Vegas.

Re: The Worcester Red Sox

I was hoping for Springfield, but that didn't seem realistic given their full court press for a casino. I can't say that I'm a fan of the "WooSox" name, but I also don't have any alternative suggestions. I'm hopeful that they get a nice stadium in there and it helps revitalize that city. Springfiel...

Re: Beer & Wine

This is the answer. The ID check stations should be inside and be voluntary in the sense that the only people in the line of an ID check station are people who want their ID checked. No additional burden on people trying to get in or trying to buy non-alcoholic menu items. Agreed. Makes no sense to...

Re: Beer & Wine

It will be interesting to see how many stations they have for booze sales and what the lines look like. One easy way to implement this is to have ID check stations at every entrance. Patrons can get their ID checked and be issued a wristband. Vendors will look for a wristband when someone purchases...

Re: Beer & Wine

This is a big deal to those that follow the department closely. The politics behind this decision are interesting to those in the know. Many, many people had to sign off on this and/or have arms twisted to do so. This has been discussed for several years; glad to see it come to fruition. The lack of...

Re: Beer & Wine

They're also like 1.5 miles from McGuirk and 0.75 miles from Mullins. I mean they're certainly there for the taking but I think there are few fans who would walk 30 minutes for a beer. I mean fuck there's complaints about the bathrooms which are what at most 0.1 miles from the stadium? I guess you ...

Re: Beer & Wine

UMass has many drinking establishments on campus (University Club, U-Pub, etc.), but has never made an effort to court fans to these establishments. I’m really surprised they don’t try to capture business on doubleheader days (basketball-hockey for example). Perhaps they don’t want to interfere with...

Re: 2018 - Game 4: @ FIU 9/15

^ Both the HD and the non-HD are on my Comcast, but an audio message says that they are in a dispute over payments, so no telecasts for now.. Side note - the Comcast sports package has gone from bad to worse over the past year. They dropped all three Fox College Sports networks (home of many colleg...
