Re: KAEO: John Buggs III

He wants a real shot at the big dance. He wants to play in a conference with a higher level of competition. He potentially wants to play closer to home. He thinks McCall is an okay coach, but is not crazy about him (this is just a total guess I am throwing out there). I think those are all rational...

I love Pip, but it makes perfect sense for him to go, especially if it is too a P5 program.
I think it depends on which P5 program. I mean he chose UMass over DePaul.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

I think Bell is going about recruiting the right way, quality not quantity. Getting some big linemen from JC schools is good. I was talking to my son yesterday and he said that either Kansas or Kansas has their whole OL made up of JC transfers. So...Kansas then? Let's hope Kansas State and not Kans...

Someone can correct me if I am wrong but I think that Whitmore is located on the site now.
You are correct.

Re: Massachusetts Athletics Branding

My biggest pet peeve with the athletics branding is when people refer to us as:

UMASS
Umass
University of UMass
UMass University

And of course: UMass Amherst

Colors are an issue, but it's probably more important that people get our name right.

Re: Head coaching options

For those of you who wanted Harasymiak, it appears he was a candidate but didn't make it past initial screening. I like what I've read so far about Bell and I hope he has great success here. I just have to pray we don't have another Charley Molnar over Neal Brown situation. Harasymiak was contacted ...

Re: McGuirk Upgrade

It may be a "foundation" but is it a solid foundation? I'd think so. Why put money into it now if we're gonna need to blow it up in less than a decade? And if it's not, then McGuirk was really poorly designed and/or UMass neglected it. Among FBS schools it's not even that old of a stadium. The over...

Is there a way to add someones Twitter handle to the side bar under their user name? I know in settings there are places to add your AIM Screen name (RIP) - would be nice for the #UMassTwitter newbies to have a good place on where to look/start.
I put my handle in my signature.

Re: Assistant Coaching Staff

FWIW (not opponent adjusted and without the "eye test") San Diego seemed to have a pretty good OL. #4 FCS in sacks allowed (0.67 per game) #8 FCS in tackles for loss allowed (4.08 per game) I'm not sure what'd considered big or small at the FCS level, but it looks like San Diego's line (~285 lbs) wa...

Re: State of the Progam

Love what Bell is accomplishing with recruiting in such a short time. Two school I compare with UMASS in FBS are App. State and GA. Southern. Both won bowl games this weekend. UMASS needs to be at that level after all these years. I hope Bell can deliver. Go UMASS! That may be the most reasonable c...

Re: McGuirk Upgrade

McG made the list on FivePoint's Worst College Football Stadiums (Pt 2) video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hzw9PgZr0C8 From the air, this stadium doesn’t look that terrible, but then you realize that this is one of the worst FBS stadiums in existence. UMass turned down the option of being in the...
