Re: A pep talk for the masses from the Sports Psychic

This is all contingent on Bell being able to recruit and retain good talent. We should have some answers on this by next year.

Re: State of the Progam

I think must of us have no choice but to hope he turns the program around. Right now the program is an embarrassment losing badly to non power house teams. We do have a decent recruiting class coming in, if Bell can retain it, so we should see some improvement next year.

Re: State of the Progam

I use to enjoy going to football games. Not any more. The current program is an embarrassment as we are getting blown out by non power house teams. I hope a Bell can retain the players he has recruited. If he can’t I see no future for this team, and it may be time, as much as I hate to say it, drop ...

Re: Game 2: Southern Illinois - 9/7/2019

Attended a game today for the first time in 2-3 years, what an embarrassment. I was never for moving up, I went to every home game and loved CAA/1AA football but the move has killed my passion for this program. We had better teams and better crowds before the move. The only positive of moving up is...

I see no future for football at Umass. Use to love following them but not anymore.

Re: 5 year anniv of last NCAA Tourney game

We were seeded higher than we deserved. Awful game for a national audience to see. Had to hurt recruiting. Ugh.

Re: State of the program

Only two A-10 teams got into the big dance. Hopefully we move up so we don’t have to play on Wed next year. Conference is down so moving up 5 to 6 slots should be achievable if we get some decent recruits and play hard.

Re: State of the program

This program has reached rock bottom. I vote for getting rid of McCall and start over. A good coach gets players to play. Period. This team played much harder earlier in the season Even thought we got blown out by Nevada Reno, they never gave up. Do you think we could beat Providence now, smoke Sout...

Re: Should McCall be given a third year

During his first year I seem to remember him removing two of his players (starters?),for shoplifting. There was a joke going around then that Umass led the nation in steals. I think Umass is making a mistake by keeping McCall and it is time to cut our losses. What would define an acceptable improvem...

Re: Game 31, 2018-19: at Rhody (3/9)

I sense from the above posts that McCall cannot relate to his players. Time to suck it up Umass, admit you made a mistake, and do the right thing.
