Re: 2020 Season

Who’s gonna be left to play? Mountain West Conference (for now), Old Dominion, New Mexico State, UConn (if they decide to renege on their promise not to play spring ball). I really can’t see UMass spring ball happening this academic year, though that can change at any time, because 2020. Onto 2021.

Re: 2020 Season

Suppose the Big Ten has a shortened fall football season. What does that leave UMass in terms of scheduling for spring football? PAC-12, MAC, Mountain West, ODU, New Mexico State, and any FCS schools that wind up playing spring ball. I doubt there will be any pay-for-play games, and if there are, it...

Re: Season Tickets for the 2020-21 season

I don’t think you’ll get much information from the office. I’m sure, however, they will be more than happy to take some kind of voluntary deposit on season tickets.

Re: Ok I'll Do it - 2021 Season

UConn is currently not planning on playing in the spring. UMass could potentially play New Mexico, New Mexico State, Akron, and Albany in the spring as they are not playing this fall. I don’t know if any of the Power Two teams would have UMass for a non-conference game. Even if they did I can’t see ...

Re: Ok I'll Do it - 2021 Season

Although I hope UMass scraps something together in the spring, it’ll be difficult to do. If there is conference-only football in the spring, it’s definitely a no-go. In all likelihood we are looking at a Fall 2021 start.

Re: 2021 Recruiting

Bell tweeted a mushroom cloud around the same time that Florida State lost a major recruit. Seminole fans thought Bell was trolling FSU and proceeded to lay into him. After the announcement postponing football, a few FSU fans were tweeting mushroom clouds to Bell or other UMass Athletics twitter ac...

Re: 2020 Season

I hope they play in the spring, even if it’s a reduced schedule.... but I don’t think it will happen.

UMass officially cancels fall football. See you in 2021.
I think a better word would be "postpones". My understanding is that they will try to play in the spring. It will be strange, but scheduling might be easier.
That why I wrote FALL football.

Re: It's nice that we are expected to survive....

With the amount of money UMass dumped into football, I don’t see them walking away from that investment unless something really bad happens. With a projected 15% shortfall in FY21, my guess is that some programs are on the chopping block. Baseball is probably first on that list. Maybe one or two oth...
