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. ...

Re: The flagship...

The flagship is sinking. On a serious note, didn’t someone in athletics marketing envision fans using this branding in a mocking manner? Why did the department continue to pursue this flagship branding? Is it because the university at large promotes it in their advertising, too? If you need to const...

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

I agree it's absolutely not a blackout...if publications wanted to send reporters there they could have. It is true, however, that the program has decided to provide little to no information on the trip. In the long run it won't mean anything, but people who have followed this program closely for 3...

Re: Game 1: @ Rutgers - 8/30/2019

As I’m sure most of you know, the Rutgers game is on the Big Ten Network. Looking forward to watching!

Per Walfish: No audio or video for the trip. Umass will play two national teams in the US and British Virgin Islands.

Villanova has a big name performer annually...a few years ago it was Cardi B
Villanova gets Cardi B to promote their top-notch basketball skills. UMass gets Cardi B to promote their top-notch Tinder-swiping skills. :lol:

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

The Department is staying active on social media. Hell, how many strongman videos have we seen over the last few weeks? Skip producing one of those and you've got plenty of time to get the word out about the VI trip. After seeing the roll out of their new “brand identity” (???!!!), I walk back from...

Re: Looking Ahead to the 2019-2020 Season

Carvel’s latest email mentions “skills coach Ryan Bliss.” I assume this means his playing career is over? From what I read, Bliss’ injury was bad enough that it would have been difficult to return to college hockey. I’m glad that UMass gave him an opportunity to train to work towards the goal to re...

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

Stadium compiled a list of all foreign trips , and we're showing to start on 8/19. That's just two weeks away. Not to have any information announced at this point is getting bizarre. Media relations is operating with a skeleton crew. The department eliminated one position recently, rolling supervis...

Re: 2019 Season

While it is great that UMass has a tv deal, doesn't that impact folks actually attending the game? We'll be able to figure out the economics based on the quality and frequency of ads. If we see a lot of 'UMass hotel 'ads, my bet is that UMass is losing a lot of live bodies in the stadium. I can’t s...

Re: Recruiting -- 2018 and beyond

^ I saw that and think it's great, but I wouldn't get carried away just yet. His stats in Jr. Hockey were nothing to write home about. Maybe he just needs another year to develop. It wasn't clear to me when he is arriving in Amherst. When UMass committed to Cale, his junior stats weren’t overwhelmi...
