Georgia Southern should be a great series, they're already a good mid-major program and last year was their first.

Re: Sorta OT: Gene DeFilippo as AD candidate?

^ Thorr is speaking like a guy who either hasn't been asked or doesn't think he'll get the job. Think about it, how would it look if he spoke publicly, as the AD at URI, that he's interested in the UMass job, especially when he isn't on UMass's radar? To me he's speaking like a guy who was asked by...

"quashed any notion?" Again...how does ANYONE know if Thorr was even on UMass' radar? Great guy but zero experience with Big Boy football. This is how Bjorn "quashed any notion"... http://www.gazettenet.com/home/15737721-95/umass-notebook-uri-ad-thorr-bjorn-turns-down-chance-to-return-to-umass Read...

I believe he also already came out and quashed any notion he'd come back to UMass.

Re: 2015 Schedule

The complete 2015 schedule for our final season in the MAC has been released. http://www.fbschedules.com/ncaa-15/mid-amer/2015-umass-minutemen-football-schedule.php We have zero #MACtion games this year, which I find hilarious since we're going to have a good offense and should challenge for a bowl ...

Re: Offseason News

Not great for a program already facing opposition from some of the faculty...this is sad and unfortunate but I really hope whoever this is is some scrub; we can't afford to lose a starter or key reserve because of something like this, we just can't.

Re: Notre Dame Game

Myself and a few friends have a tentative plan to drive out for this one too. Not too often you get to see your alma mater play in one of the most historic places in CFB. And I HATE Notre Dame, so it should be a good time, no matter what the final score ends up being. 13 hour drive from MA to South ...

Re: Sorta OT: Gene DeFilippo as AD candidate?

I always get a laugh at how BC people seemingly go out of their way to shit on UMass at even the smallest opportunity. We get it, you're Boston College ...thing they don't get is that nobody cares. On that note, I do actually agree with the tenor of the blog post that DeFilippo isn't a real candidat...

Re: future scheduling talk

I generally look at the entirety of the G5 as a possibility to play at McGuirk. The gap between the P5 and the G5 is very large, and I don't see any team in the G5 that would truly consider themselves "too good" to play at McGuirk (with the one possible exception of Boise State). From the checking ...

Re: future scheduling talk

If BYU bought us out we'd be in trouble. They know scheduling as an independent is not easy and I don't think they'd screw us over. Uh if they had a better offer, they would screw us in a New York Minute - or as we in Amherst like to call it a Bob Marcum Minute. It would have to be a pretty good of...

Re: Sifrin Leaving for NFL Draft

This is why I hate the combine. One day of practice and the guy is no good? Come on, that's silly. Look at the results on the field during games, not some stupid practice with QB's who don't know the player. The combine is stupid. I don't think anyone is saying he isn't good, but he did not help hi...

Re: Sifrin Leaving for NFL Draft

Shame Jean seems to have performed so poorly. He was a reach given his inexperience and age already, if the measureables are also less than stellar, he's going to struggle to get drafted. I think teams who would be interested would have needed to see something concrete during the combine in order to...

Re: future scheduling talk

Can BYU just buy us out? I believe they could, these deals always have buyout clauses, but these particular games were just agreed to last year. We're not the opponent Mich St is, so we got bumped from our previously scheduled date, but I don't think BYU would look to buy us out at all. They want t...
