Re: 2019-20 Season

One doesn't get points for non-conference games. So 5 points would be exceptional with only 4 on the table.

Re: Hank Tomkowicz passes away

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

I agree, the right keeps heading right-ward, the left keeps heading left-ward, menawhile the vast majority of us are in the middle of those two hoping eventually, someone will run from the middle-ish area of the spectrum. The trouble is, anytime someone from the middle runs, no one supports them.

Re: 2019-20 Season

In the recent past, people wouldn't even publish the pairwise this early. Hockey has a decent amount of parity, a small amount of teams. One weird result can affect the pairwise throughout the entire rank. It need more data to start making sense of anything. This is why you see 12 point swings from ...

Re: The secular decline of football in high school

I am ambivalent. I started football at 8. I earned scholarship offers to college 1A-III, I never played. I have many of the 'signs' of CTE. I have suffered 3 concussions. Of my concussions, one was on the football field, two were being an idiot, football was the most minor one of them. Given the opt...

Re: Game 8 - UMass at UNH Sunday 1 pm

I don't think there was any chance of moving to #1, Denver's loss was to UMD, a VERY strong team. Hockey polls are not a volatile as other polls. UMass likely would have moved to 2, Denver at 1. As is, I expect Umass 4 or 5. I see: 1.Denver 2. Notre Dame 3. Cornell (I don't like this still) 4. Minn ...

Re: new goal song

I ask this honestly, what is the obsession with shouting obscenities in public that makes this SOOOOOOO important? Let's call a spade a spade The song was dumped for 2 reasons: (I personally don't believe it was one and not the other) 1. Gary Glitter is a bad look in this day. 2. The chant at the en...

Re: new goal song

again what made our solid athletic department make this decision? GG pedophilia or nooo swearing in the mullins. Still a terrible decision, what the students should do is after music stops on all stops in play is go: hey you suck, fuck em fuck em go umass. boom. take that bambi. I mean, here is the...

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

Floyd, I don't disagree, just trying to find a potential silver lining. ;) I'd love to see how they look too, but I am OK waiting if it helps the players/coaches. Even as a youth football coach it was nice to sometimes get my kids out of the view of their parents watching practice, because then the ...

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

I know it's not desired by the fans here, but there is value in the team being able to go and compete without a spotlight on them. Freshmen can go out and make a mistake without having to read about it. Coaches can relax about every movement being analyzed, and just coach, say the things that need t...

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

I think I have regularly followed this board for somewhere on the order of 8 years now. I feel like someone needs to draw me a flow-chart of the interpersonal relations of the members. Then I always snap back to reality and realize I just don't care.

Re: future scheduling talk

One would hope the athletic dept is taking the Hockey success on ice and the long term look at Basketball, and football and looking for a NESN or other regional channels and offering a package to be the UMass sports channel. They should use the Hockey East Playoffs, Regional NCAA and Frozen Four cro...
