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.

Did anyone else have trouble with the free streaming?
Don’t get comfortable with streaming being free. I believe the trial period is over and all CBS streaming games are behind a paywall.

Re: 2019 Season

I’ve seen some people on this board make comparisons between UMass’ defense this season and UConn’s defense in 2018. Here are the numbers: 2018 UConn - 617 yds per game (282 pass, 335 rush), 50.4 ppg. 2018 UMass - 485 yds per game (210 pass, 275 rush), 42.9 ppg. 2019 UMass as of today - 556 yds per ...

Re: 2019 Season

I’ve resigned myself to the fact that UMass will lose out the string. The defense has gaping personnel issues that I don’t think will be fixed as the season progresses. The offense isn’t far behind. I’ll be pleasantly surprised if they win a game. I’ll still go to the games and watch to see growth. ...
