Re: Duke

University of Mary Hardin-Baylor....the new Cleveland State. NCAA is showing who's boss!!! Nailed a D3 school. Given what goes on in D1, this is ridiculous. https://www.kwtx.com/2020/06/26/ncaa-upholds-umhb-penalty-school-must-vacate-football-wins-records/ The NCAA Friday upheld its decision that th...

UMASS Dartmouth cuts sports

You have to think Swami has to be considering what to do in Amherst. The Chancellor said the process of reevaluating the sports started before the COVID 19 outbreak. https://www.bostonglobe.com/2020/07/01/sports/umass-dartmouth-discontinues-eight-programs-effective-immediately/ https://www.southcoas...

Re: George Floyd/Colin Kaepernick

I think there are a lot more pressing race issues than worrying about Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben but maybe that's just me. Don't think it's a big deal either way and just seems like hollow virtue signaling to celebrate losing those brands as victories. I learned at the Gettysburg tour last summer th...

Re: 2020-21 Season

I remember a time when UMASS had an undersized center and power forward. Harper Williams and Will the Thrill turned out ok.

Re: Liberty University

Here is what the leader of LU is concerned about and what Chancellor Subbaswami is concerned about. Quite a contrast. IMO, UMASS should not have anything to do with LU athletically. Our association with LU through the athletic competitions gives Falwell an undeserved aura of legitimacy. https://wset...

Re: 04 HE Championship game

^^^ My experience is that UMASS alumni are good people and fun to hang around with even if you just met them. Not all schools are like that and I am glad to have gone to UMASS!

George Floyd/Colin Kaepernick

Worth reading from Washington Post Sports page- "Colin Kaepernick’s real offense was to open the box and hold up what is in front of the audience, instead of the triumphalist, self-congratulatory image the NFL wanted. The league owners had a chance, with Kaepernick, to be more than hucksters gu...

Re: 04 HE Championship game

Great game except at the very end. Kudos to all the players on both sides for grinding it out. Side story- Went to that game without tickets and figured we get some from a scalper. Before we looked for tix, we went to The Fours for a couple of beers. Met some nice guy from UMASS- bought him a couple...

Re: California law endorses college athletes getting paid/have agents

[/quote] I realize it won't change but that's why many people love college sports more than pro sports. I just like 18-22 yo kids to still be kids and enjoy the college experience and playing for their school rather than being basically pro athletes trying to navigate thru academics as well. [/quote...

Re: California law endorses college athletes getting paid/have agents

I know lots of people disagree but, isn't getting a 50k +/yr education with all the percs, academic support etc kind of "getting paid"? I'm sure there's tons of 18-22 yo kids who'd like that deal. I used to be 100% in your camp Floyd but have done a 180. This article give a good perspecti...

Re: California law endorses college athletes getting paid/have agents

It looks more and more like the NCAA and college sports are no longer going to be around in their current form. These legal challenges are going to force some major changes with P5 schools perhaps breaking away and working under a whole different set of rules. Money drives everything these days and ...
