Re: Game 2D: @ Marshall - 11/7 @2:30pm

Couldn't agree more except Whipple had us quasi-respectable at 4-8, 4-8. 2017 was our best year since the move-up. Bell is absolutely killing this program and, truthfully, I would be in shock if we are still playing FBS in 7 or 8 years. Whipple is a tremendous coach. Definitely the best UMass is ha...

Re: Game 2D: @ Marshall - 11/7 @2:30pm

The fact the program can get a good schedule as an independent and has made serious upgrades to facilities means Bamford hasn’t killed the program. This is the toughest place in all of FBS to be successful. No conference. No fan support. Old stadium. No bowl tie ins. Not in a recruiting fertile plac...

Re: Game 2D: @ Marshall - 11/7 @2:30pm

I’m someone who as a student went to more football games at UMass than any other sport combined. I’ve had season tickets to football since I graduated and have rarely missed a home game. I’m an on again-off again member of the gridiron club. I haven’t been to a basketball game in the Mullins Center ...

Re: NCAA Regional in Springfield

How does cohosting work? If both teams qualify are they both placed there? Neither? The one higher in the pairwise? I know when conferences host no one is automatically placed there, not even the conference championship.

Re: 2020 Season

Would be pretty funny if the team didn’t play a regular season game and got a bowl invite.

Re: College Hockey retracting? UAB drops sport

St. Thomas is moving to D1. So that makes two teams adding and maybe on subtracting. I donated to UAH. I’ll donate to UAA too Id given the opportunity.

Re: 2020 Season

UMass football shouldn’t play a down this fall. The NBA and NHL seem to have things under control playing in a bubble. The MLB is trying to travel as usual and it’s a mess. Unless there’s some plan to have every D1 team still competing in a bubble somewhere with Multiple fields so they can all play ...

Re: AD Ryan Bamford

I’m not sure I’d call Boston College “regional.” The vast majority of their students are from out of New England IIRC

Re: 2020 Season

^eldonabe never mentioned Clemens by name and it was a second paragraph when Brady was brought up. You (and I) on the other hand used their names in the same sentence :lol: :lol:

Re: Hockey East Tournament

Yep. ECAC and AHA both reportedly cancelled. Rumors have WCHA in same boat. Hockey East probably next.

Of all the shitty ways for a season to end without UMass in the NCAAs, and as a pessimist I considered a lot of them, I never foresaw life threatening pandemic cancels entire season.

Re: Hockey East Tournament

Based on what the NBA just did, coupled with the fact Harvard and Yale backed out of the ECAC tournament, we may have watched our last college hockey game of the season. Hope I’m wrong...

Re: 2019-20 Season

It doesn't show up in the stat sheet but Kolby Vegara had a great game, especially considering he wasn't even dressing as a defenseman earlier in the season when the team was going through injuries on the blue line. To play forward, and to throw your weight around like that with good, legal checks, ...

Re: 2019-20 Season

Agreed about Leonard.

Maybe time to call up someone from the club team, even just to sit on the bench in case of emergency.
