Oh there's a few here that are fragile. That's for sure.

Re: Pat Kelsey

Winthrop won their conference tourney this year and got an automatic big to the NCAA Tournament, which was then cancelled. I find a bit of schadenfreude in that. Bringing this up today because this is the 3rd anniversary of Kelsey getting cold feet and no-show'ing at our press conference. What the ...

Re: Last Year Cage will host WMass Semis and Finals

The cage was renovated back in the 80's I think. We cannot play regular games in the cage because of the contract with the Mullins Center. Just need the team to improve to bring back the crowds. Many of the gang that I was a part of back in the 90's have passed away or are on the older side and the...

Re: State of the Progam

I know there are much more important things going on in America right now. With that in mind... With the country moving quickly toward recession and high unemployment (not to mention a broke NCAA and the specter of not being able to hold a 2020 season), will UMass football survive financially? I for...

I'll be interested in seeing how many fans/students show up tonight.

The bandwagon tends to fill slowly but empty quickly.
UMass has averaged an attendance of 2600 so far this season. Expect a similar or smaller number tonight.

Re: 2019 Season

Is Robert Smith involved with The Cure bowl?...I will never understand why anyone cares about all of these meaningless bowl games. ESPN certainly does. Even the crap bowls can draw well over one million viewers. Gamblers probably also care - the expansion of legal sports books may also grow that vi...

Nice win, but boy was that arena empty/dead. Must be near finals.
410 hardy souls trekked to the (not Marty) Meehan Auditorium to see UMass thrash the Bears.

Here are Brown’s attendance figures for all home games this season: 690, 723, 489, 617, 557, 410. Mean is 581. Yikes.

Shaughnessy doubles down! Predicts UMass will give up big-boy football in a few years.

Re: State of the Progam

The rant from the Curly Headed Boyfriend wasn’t particularly surprising. What was surprising was that Meehan’s comments weren’t particularly supportive of the program. If the president of the university isn’t supportive of the football program, why should the fans be supportive? Reminds me of Swamy’...

Re: Game 8: vs UConn - 10/26/2019 (Homecoming Weekend)

I was surprised Athletics didn’t include gift availability in their game preview email. They are usually good about mentioning these kind of things in those emails.
