2019 Hall of Fame Classic At Mohegan Sun

UMass joins Virginia, Arizona State and St Johns at Mohegan Sun in November. Other teams are Central Connecticut, Rider, Columbia and Vermont. Much more attractive field than we've seen in prior tournaments. This one may actually draw at the casino and on campus.

Re: Vote for Cale for the Hobey Baker

Aside from the fact he deserves the award, how great would it be for UMass Athletics to have their first Hobey Baker Award winner and their first consensus FBS All-American in the same academic year. Vote early and often.

Came home, turned on the game, turned off the game in <30 seconds. Never done that before.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Actually think this class will compare favorably to Whipple's last year. They had two highly regarded recruits in Norwood and Jefferson, but dropped off after that. If everyone who has verballed signs they'll have more 3* recruits this year and I suspect there are a few more to come. Given how late ...

Re: Assistant Coaching Staff

If the info is correct, this piece on Azzaar Abdul-Rahim is quite interesting and encouraging. https://247sports.com/college/maryland/ ... 125700257/

Re: Assistant Coaching Staff

So far, all's quiet on the defensive front. Wouldn't mind seeing a Defensive Coordinator under the tree for Christmas.

Re: Assistant Coaching Staff

Hope to see 1 or 2 Assistants with New England and NY ties. Also curious as to who winds up coaching the defense, hires so far seem to be for the offense.

Re: Walt Bell

WR Jesse Britt announces that rather than go through with his announced decision to transfer he will remain at UMass. Things trending well under Coach Bell.

Re: Walt Bell

Hope everyone tempers their optimism for next year in fairness to Coach Bell. We lose our top 2 QBs, top RB, top LB and our first FBS First Team All-American at WR. That said, hopeful for Year 2 and beyond.

Re: Game 9, 2018-2019 Holy Cross, 12-4-18

Right now, this isn't a particularly likeable team. Not a lot of fun to watch.

Re: Walt Bell

Suspect Coach Bell will make a few key hires of assistants based on their ties to NJ, NY and New England. Since he was OC at Maryland for two years I'm willing to bet he has good contacts in the Mid-Atlantic.

Re: Head coaching options

I was also hoping for Haraasymiak, but I think he was done in as an option by Maine's success in the FCS Playoffs. Suspect Bamford knew they needed a fairly quick hire for both player retention and recruiting. Given his track record, I'll trust the AD.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Will be interesting to see what happens with current commits with the hiring of Coach Bell. Would expect a few to move on because of the coaching change and to see one or two that the staff backs off on. With the early signing period coming up it would be nice if the coach's current connections help...

Doesn't yelling during the National Anthem qualify as seriously disrespecting the flag?

Re: Head coaching options

Go after Maine's HarasmyiaK. If you can recruit winning players to Orono you should be able to recruit them to Amherst.
