Re: Conference realignment 3.0

While football is the driver in this conference realignment race, we have to remember that hoops and other sports play a role in this. Hockey and Lacrosee (both men's and women's) could go a long way in helping us. Steve Maz and I have been in this Big Ten idea for a while, and those sports are wild...

Re: Conference realignment 3.0

I am hopeful 2017 will include expanded (most likely temporary) seating at McGuirk. I know my numbers are overly optimistic. The BC game at Gillette is the measuring stick. My math is simple. I am assuming the Gillette games average 25k this year. BC, MSU and then Band Day are the Gillette games. Th...

Re: Conference realignment 3.0

If we can bump home attendance to the 20k area for two years if we don't win, that will be worth a lot. In the FCS days winning doubled the home crowd, for sure. But, if we can get 20k while losing and add 5-10k for winning that should get us into a conference.

Re: Conference realignment 3.0

This schedule is set up to get more people to come. The Gillette slate has name brand teams, no more directional schools. The McGuirk slate has at least two wins, possibly three with an AAC team at homecoming being the toughest of the three.

Re: Conference realignment 3.0

^ Here! Here! Right on innervisions! If we show up, we will be good. AD Bamford hints at this in an article posted on Frank's UMass football blog. He is holding off scheduling 2018 in case things change (conference affiliation). We need people in the stands, a competitive team, good hoops, hockey an...

Re: Conference realignment 3.0

Big if, here is if this guy is right. He also states that expansion might not happen. It's his opinion that the deal makes sense. He also hints at BYU as the least likely of the three, even though he thinks they woul go for it. If the big 12 expands going to 13 teams isn't likely to happen, so let's...

current plan is to make available individual game tix to exiting Club STHs who wish to purchase them, as needed.

(Info via UM tix rep Fri aft)
I assume you mean existing not exiting. What will pricing be?

Re: 2016 Season

I think that the Putnam level seats were only available as part of the season ticket package. I was able to sit up there by picking up tickets from season ticket holders that could not make the game. My ST are in the Putnam club. It's never been full, and it didn't seem like there was a way to buy ...

Re: 2016 Season

Are Putnam club seats available for sale for individual games usually? I haven't seen them advertised. Is the $30 100 level fave value for all games or have prices gone up? I love that the group rate is now only 10 people.

^ It appears that nothing has changed... There are record keeping reasons why I had no reason to think that part of the tix pkg donation has been going to the GIC; however, I double checked another source, my own personal records, and found annual donations, coinciding with tix purchases, to the sa...

Re: 2016 Season

^ The "waste of a day" attitude is the biggest problem. You won't hear people say that at Alabama, ND, Michigan, or other schools that some like to think we are a comparable University to. It's a sad state of affairs, but I will agree that winning will cure all ills. I agree winning or even being c...
