Re: new goal song

Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t the band have to play royalties to use music?

I honestly don’t care. I sat through tons of games were UMass was blown out and they played that song. I’d rather go to games like last night instead TBH.

Re: GAME 6 FIU 10/45/19

It can’t be that people are talking about it on other sites like twitter. Another reasonable conclusion to draw is no one gives a shit about UMass hockey because there isn’t a season thread over on USCHO less than a week before the season starts :roll:

Re: Looking Ahead to the 2019-2020 Season

Sucks for the people being laid off but I don’t think that’s the issue. If Pantano decided it Thursday after the lay offs then fine. But it was announced months ago. It’s a pretty big oversight IMO.

Re: State of the Progam

Public Universities and Community Colleges should be free for in-state students. Shame with the surplus Baker likes to brag about every year the Commonwealth isn’t doing more for MA higher ed students.

Re: Looking Ahead to the 2019-2020 Season

It’s good to see SI covering college hockey. That said, disappointing they don’t know Pantano grad transferred to NU. They lead the NU blurb off with the Huskies having 0 combined games played at the Goalie position. Not sure how they could miss that in their research.

Re: State of the Progam

Football, and athletics period, has nothing to do with US news rankings. Nothing. check out their methodology. https://www.usnews.com/education/best-colleges/articles/how-us-news-calculated-the-rankings And for weighting, here: https://www.usnews.com/education/best-colleges/articles/ranking-criteri...

I hope these people were watching Idaho yesterday.

Or with the exception of BC who by all accounts has a great class coming in, they just more or less copied last year’s standings.

Re: 2019 Season

I think that it is a lousy rule and should be done away with. How many more guys will be transferring from many other schools? A lousy rule for the schools maybe but not for the players. The NCAA has historically screwed over the players in favor of the schools. If anything, there should be more ru...

Re: State of the Progam

You are wrong about your Ven Diagram not intersecting, dead wrong. I donated to the Court Club the last few years and been a season ticket holder of basketball tickets longer than football. I'll celebrate any UMass team doing well and even drove up to Buffalo for the Frozen Four. Of course it inter...

Re: State of the Progam

Why does this always devolve into Football vs Basketball? That's infuriating. Both teams have sucked for so long and both of the fanbases are pissed. If we look at the Ven Diagram and take the fans who are in the parts of the circles that DON’T intersect, each sees the other team as a scape goat fo...

Re: State of the Progam

I wish someone could show me other teams that have "bought" their way into conferences. You could argue the Alaskas and UAH did for the WCHA. They pay travel subsidies. At least the Alaska schools do. Not sure about UAH. But that’s a one sport conference... and all three are basically screwed right...

Re: State of the Progam

Don't be distracted by those off comments. Said NOTHING about McGuirk, nothing! For the cost, less than 1 buy game for a 5-6 year term affiliation. So there it is, one additional buy game would do more than do it. I’ve never met McKinney IRL but I’ve followed his work online. Something tells me he ...

Re: 2019 Season

The ability to flex unused season tickets is a pretty good thing so we have that going for us.
