Re: Game # 7 Louisiana Tech

Buying a group pack of 10 tickets fro each Gillette game to give to a Boys and girls club is also a good thing. $100 donation and possibly new fans.

Re: Game 2: Boston College

So are he club level seats worth the extra $30 at Gillette?? Or better off getting the cheaper seats closer to the action? Thanks in advance Definitely worth it. The UMass side is ion the sun the whole game. 90 degrees. Shorter beer lines, more bathrooms, and A/C if you need it. The Club seats aren...

Re: Game 1 (2016): Florida

For me, one of the more impressive and easy to overlook stats is the penalties. While Florida had a couple ugly, provoking personal fouls, our team was able to keep it's composure. This is especially difficult to do when behind and overmatched. This shows me a team that has good coaching and discip...

Preseason rankings mean very little to Vegas usually. Many of those site also had USC as twenty. This first week showed how little preseason rankings matter.

Re: Game 2: Boston College

In case you haven't seen it yet, BC is favored by 17.5 in the opening line. May tighten a bit, but I'm not surprised to see 17.5 I am. The BC offense scores very little. To have a spread this size means a shutout is predicted. I didn't expect us to favored or anything crazy like that, but maybe 10?

Re: Game 2: Boston College

Heartbreaking loss for BC :D I gotta admit that I was rooting for BC in this one. Now they'll be worried about starting the season 0-2. After last night against FLA, the Eagles won't be looking past us. In order to win we're gonna have to win mano a mano. I'm looking forward to a good game. They wi...

Re: Conference realignment 3.0

Bamford's comments about rejoining the MAC signal one of two things to me (neither are good)- 1) His conversations with the AAC are going poorly and UMASS has little chance of getting in or 2) The Big 12 is going to devastate the AAC and it will cease to be a viable conference with members looking ...

Re: Conference realignment 3.0

Got a buddy who is an OU alum and he really think succor is getting picked for the B12. He’s basing it on ESPN pressure almost exclusively, though. I sure hope he is wrong. . .

Re: 2016 Season

There seems to be no mention of what time you can start tailgating in Amherst, but there is one major thing of note: no post-game tailgating allowed. I tweeted at Alan last night about that but no word yet. I cannot fathom why they would take that away. Even if you look at it simply from a traffic ...

Wouldn't this score make them cover?
Duh. I'm having many too many brain farts lately. I meant Florida doesn't cover.

Re: Game 12: Hawai'i

Shoot out. The rainbow warrior defense looked more like the rainbow connection from wizard of Oz. hopefully we will be healthy and looking to become bowl eligible..... I know the second half has maroon glasses, but the first half of my comment is believable.

Re: Game 2: Boston College

^ I am thinking no. There is likely a cut-off date they would need to hit in order to accommodate that in terms of personnel needed by the stadium for security etc. If the lower bowl is 34k there's got to be another, what, 2k in the club seats. I don't think we'll be hitting that threshold quite ye...
