Re: Game 10 (2016): Troy

an all encompassing futuristic perspective. Frankly, we should be #1 on that list or already a P5 or if we could go back in time and build Umass campus In say Natick or Framingham, Umass would likely be one of the top 3 or 4 Public Institutions in the land with tons of cash and obviously in either t...

Re: Game 10 (2016): Troy

I agree with the fact that we are literally 3 quarters of the way there. no way Troy beats us in 2018 for instance. Is that before or after UMass joins the Big Ten? :lol: :lol: :lol: Before.. You do realize that this may Umass's only chance to be a part of major college athletics. This could very e...

Re: Game 10 (2016): Troy

They played up to the level of competition for 3 quarters. I know that's become the standard UMass Football experience, but it's something. A lot of people didn't expect this game to be competitive, and some will claim the final score proves them right, but we know what happened. We have no depth a...

Re: Conference realignment 3.0

My thinking is that if Umass is stuck in Indy purgatory it would make scheduling much easier if we had some sort of alliance with at least UConn, Army, BYU, and New Mexico St (I think they are indy next year) to fill the November slate. I don't think it would be unreasonable to think that the schedu...

Re: Conference realignment 3.0

If UConn leaves AAC they would be better off as Indy in FB. I wouldn't be surprised if Navy bolts too and maybe Temple. We could have a mini conference of Umass UConn Temple Navy Army BYU and even New Mexico St. I would also be in favor of playing UConn twice each year in football. I would also like...

Re: Game 6 (2016): ODU

can somebody explain that muffed punt play Yes - refs completely blew the call. Muff isn't possession so somehow that can't be a TD (is what I'm being corrected to) and that's why it was a touchback. Now the refs also missed the returner's failed forward pass in the end zone which is a safety. Just...

utterly embarrassing performance! Also, time to hire an offensive coordinator.

Re: Game 5 (2016): Tulane

I think we are on the right track even though I expect a 3-9 maybe 4-8 season this year. It is obvious the team is improving. On a side note, watching the Pats game yesterday we can see what it things can be like for them in a few years. Once their dynasty ends (and it will) a door may open for more...

Re: 2016 Season

I feel like the program is turning a huge corner. Hopefully they kick it in to high gear and win the next three.. Obviously take it one game at a time but it would be nice to be 4-3 heading to SC, who is weaker than Miss St.

Re: Game 4 (2016): Mississippi State

attendance will come boys.. and it may take a 10-0 start in 2018.. I'm actually serious! next year is a big mistake playing all 6 games in Amherst as that stadium and set up blows.. I live 30 mins away from Amherst and would rather drive to Foxboro.. Not to mention we need to keep a presence in east...

Re: Game 4 (2016): Mississippi State

it is obvious Ford is better QB. I really think we are finally starting to build something here and had chances to steal that game. Oh well, on to Tulane and then ODU where I expect two wins.

Re: Game 3 (2016): FIU

Happy with the W and feel is if the offense probably should have generated more pts (Jonah TD, Davis not finishing his route on what should have been big play and Nesmith being Nesmith). I like handing the ball to the FB and I think they should mix that in more). On to Miss State, where I think they...
