Re: Game 9: vs Liberty - 11/2/2019

^ 5 points!

I was curious about records for number of safeties scored. Turns out that UMass has scored three safeties in a game on two occasions.

Re: 2023 Recruiting

... Edit: Well, whaddya know! Per Wikipedia, Ray Allen's full name is Walter Ray Allen Jr. I guess that makes sense. If your dad is named Walter and you're named Walter, they'll probably call you something else. I wonder what they call Walter III. Maybe this'll be another Steph Curry story. But you...

Interesting to note that the family of the guy who came up with term for the number "googol" considered suing Google for using the term.

Veterans Day

I searched a bit on this board for salutes to our veterans, with little success. So I'll start this thread for anyone who wants to give props to veterans they know. For me, my dad did four years overseas in the 5th Army during WWII, primarily in North Africa, Italy and France. His primary job was a ...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Actually, I'll agree that we would be better off with very limited mail-in voting. You know, I way oversimplified the ability, or lack thereof, for overseas personnel to have their votes counted. Reading further just in the link I supplied, there are many avenues available to people overseas and the...

Re: 2020 Presidential Election

Every November election should be a holiday! https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/12/politics/virginia-election-day-holiday-early-voting/index.html Agreed. And let’s never let mail voting ever happen again for a national election. Like the idea of the holiday and expanding the window to vote. But how do we ...

Re: UMass-NFL news

I did see Andy draw double coverage on a deep crossing route which allowed a 43-yard gain on an open crossing route heading the other direction underneath. 6:12 mark here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bywrMfiALmU

Re: All-time starting five

I'd be equally interested in everyone's all-time second team. Some thoughts: Jim McCoy, Monty Mack and Chaz Williams are all worthy of first-team consideration. Alex Eldredge was a 2010's PG frustratingly stuck in the 70's game. Will Herndon, Jameel Pugh and Unique McClean headline my All-Whoa! team...

Re: Game 1A: Georgia Southern

I've got my VCR set for an extra hour in case Ga So can hang with us for multiple overtimes.

It's good to have something to root for again.

Re: 2020 Season

^^^^ I'll agree with Jack's assessment. Always a top-notch presentation from the band. I'll always remember one halftime show back in the day when the band responded to reports of the recently-constructed library slowly sinking. The band formed an outline of the library which slowly listed and wound...

Re: 2020 Season

I'd like to propose we find seven other like-minded schools (include a 1AA if needed) and cobble together an eight-team "tournament", just to have something a little bit meaningful to play for. Schedule each round two weeks apart to allow flexibility around other committed games. Winners o...
