Re: Game 2: Boston College

Let’s hope we play well against UF. That will determine how many additional fans show up to this game. If the spread is lower than two TD’s for this game it should get UMass faithful out.

Re: Game 2: Boston College

Does anyone have information on how ticket sales are doing for our side? I talked briefly with the group ticket sales person and she seemed to think that the youth leagues would be a significant boost for our side. If you go on Ticketmaster you can see the available seats, there is a lot of them. I...

Re: 2016 Season

Tweet from Pandiani: "Students should be excited, we will have DJ BJenks inside McGuirk for all 3 games in Amherst this season." On one hand, I'm glad to see Athletics trying to attract students into the actual game. Colleges of all levels of success are having difficulty getting students to attend...

Re: 2016 Season

^ I overhead someone on the staff say that it appears as of now there will be more BC fans than UMass fans at the game. But any attendance is good to me. Kinda what I figured but still very curious to the number of season tickets we have sold. Football is the only sport BC still gets fans too Shops...

Re: McGuirk Upgrade

We need to work in stages. ODU plans to increase seating capacity first as well as sight lines is the way to go then the amenities. However, we can not got the Sullivan stadium route and rely on portapotties. All the gravel/loose granular crap around the stadium needs to go. Endzone seats should not...

Does it look like Cag is making up ground to put that scholly to use?

Re: 2016 Season

We're probably not going to like the win/loss record, but at least we seem to have a reasonable idea of how the season'g going to play out. Last year's "bowl talk" was beyond ridiculous. I was one who believed it and ended up very disappointed. I believed it too. That's why I hope I'm not erring on...

Re: 2016 Season

Record wise I think we finish with 3, maybe 4 wins, but more importantly a lower point differential in the losses. I would love to see more. But, I think the wins come against Wagner, FIU, and Tulane- good news is they are all in front of a home crowd. I would love to pull out wins against ODU and B...

Re: Conference realignment 3.0

Group tickets are $10, and food vouchers aren’t tough to come by either, so yes, you are correct sir! I'm only seeing tix for $30. Where are the group tix for $10?

Re: 2016 Season

Is anyone else going to the football town hall meeting on Saturday? I'm going to drive up from NJ for it. I wish they announced this event with more than roughly two weeks lead time; it almost makes it look like it was a "last minute" idea when it really wasn't. I would have scheduled things accord...

Re: McGuirk Upgrade

What the heck is historic about McGuirk? You don't think the bathrooms are an example of outstanding design?? I think the UFO shaped concessions stands were designed perfectly.... But, seriously, if this was going to happen, Max already lost his shot to put up a fight when they demolished the north...

Re: 2016 Season

Apple TV or google chrome cast work well too. I have Apple TV. Mirrors iPhone or iPad. Others like Google. Isn't it easier to just use the WatchESPN app on Apple TV? That's what I did. Yes it is. I was thinking about games that weren’t on watch ESPN. My bad. I used the Apple TV watch ESPN app. I th...

We are on vaca starting that day. Don't think it would go over well with the family if I went to Amherst.
