Re: Game 4 (2016): Mississippi State

My one major criticism of the game is directed at the DC. They ran the QB keeper or draw at least 6 times and probably averaged 15 years a carry on it. I knew it was coming on at least half of them. His failure to make adjustments for that play hurt us and kept the D on the field way too long. Gran...

Re: Game 4 (2016): Mississippi State

^ What puts Ford over for me is his pocket presence and just overall awareness. Comis held on to the ball too long and for someone that was supposed to be really mobile, his escapability and ability to scramble really underwhelmed me. I think It is a bit of apples and oranges. The defenses in the f...

Re: Game 4 (2016): Mississippi State

Count me 'in' on Ford as QB. While UMASS did its Q3 slide, it also fought back. A buddy of mine was impressed. He roots for USF. I still think Ford and Comis are comparable. Against BC, Comis had no time and no Jalen Williams. Also, the freshmen, Palmer especially, are starting to see the field. Th...

Re: Game 3 (2016): FIU

^ Those seats are only discounted if you buy in bulk. How's that working out? Doesn't seem great at the moment. You do whatever you can to get butts in the seats. I'm sorry you don't think it's right, but this program and Department aren't in a position to worry about that right now. I agreed with ...

Re: 2016 Season

^ I thought Whip liked to use 2 TE sets? It might also help the running game. If the WR's can't get open & make catches then they're pretty much useless and I'd rather have a 2nd TE in there. Hell, we could go really big and put in three TE’s. They all catch the ball better than the WR’s. They coul...

Re: Game 3 (2016): FIU

^^^ It's not undercutting us at all. STH get other perks for locking in their tickets early. And no one is suggesting selling every other ticket at a lower price. You have 4 corner sections (1, 10, 11, 20) that can all easily be sold at a lower price because the seats aren't nearly as good as what ...

Re: Game 3 (2016): FIU

Walk up and individual tickets should have a higher face value than ST, always. The fact that people would be willing to lower the price is very ill-informed. Group tickets are already discounted and the school gives many tickets to local youth groups. People are not going to be attracted to this te...

Re: 2016 Season

Man I wish I had some of the optimism you guys have.. We hung around for 2 first half's, barely squeeked by a bad FIU team and now Mississippi State is on upset alert. I don't think they barely squeaked by FIU. FIU had one good drive, which was a pretty dominant one. Other than that drive UMass dom...

Re: Game 3 (2016): FIU

The anthem was always played before the players came on the field. It was the same in the NFL until about 7 years ago when the armed forces started paying the NFL for the fly overs and reui ions, etc. At UMass the band plays the alma mater, roll down the field, maybe God bless America and then the a...

Re: Game 4 (2016): Mississippi State

@rsox- Maybe "pathetic" was the wrong word. It's more that I hate the look of it. It's also the photographer in me preferring some contrast to the uniform so my camera's autofocus sytem has something better to "lock" on. That being said, I don't think I'm alone with the dislike of the monochromes. ...

Re: 2016 Season

UMass needs to average 13,172 fans for the next four home games to reach an average of 15,000 per game. I don't believe they are in jeopardy of getting double-secret probation after this season, regardless of attendance. Didn't they reach that 15k threshold last season, thus exempting them from dou...

Re: Game 3 (2016): FIU

Some questions that I have from the game, 1) What happened to Huber? I think that he sat out the whole second half. 2) What happened to Jackson Porter? He also sat out the whole second half. 3) What happen to Sekai Lindsy? I don't recall seeing him in the second half but we did see Robinson-Woodget...

Re: Game 4 (2016): Mississippi State

I see another sec D owning our O-line and a passing game that exposes our D backs. Hope I am wrong but I say this one gets ugly in an empty Gillette. There's always a chance we'll give 'em a good game like we did Colorado a while back (loss 38-41). As for the empty Gillette? No getting around that ...

Re: McGuirk Upgrade

Any idea why there were NO, I mean none, zero, zippo, port potties on the home side at McGuirk for the FIU game?
