Doing BC basketball still I believe
Yeah Maurer does BC basketball only. Jon Meterparel is still their FB announcer.

Re: 2019 Season

So it appears the broadcast crew will consist of Josh Maurer, Andy Gresh, and Brandon London.

Re: 2019 Season

Glad they were able to get a deal in place and keep the games on linear TV locally. Unfortunate that the Akron game is going to air on tape delay though. Why not just move the kickoff back to 5:30 to accommodate TV?

Maybe what we had signed for last season extends into this year?
I don't believe so. Looked like Eleven Sports left us hanging back in January. Also no start times have been announced for any home games yet.

Re: 2019 Season

Anything out there regarding a TV deal for the upcoming season? Odd that nothing has been announced with the season a month away. Fellow indy New Mexico St recently signed a deal with FloSports to carry their games, wonder if something like that is on the table for UMass as well?

Re: future scheduling talk

Like the idea tossed about on other boards regarding UConn's 2020 independent schedule. Moving the away 9/3 game to 12/5, which will open up the date for a season opening home game. Against who though? I guess it would make sense if the Albany game could be moved from week 3 to week 1, but it's goi...

Re: 2019 Season

I stand corrected on the bowl bids; good to see the MAC got the bowl game in Detroit back. That was always a big game for that conference. But either way the MAC ship has sailed. UMass was offered full membership because it was part of the agreement that if the MAC terminated the FB only arrangement...

Re: 2019 Season

I think a football only membership anywhere would be best - but primarily for the travel cost to non-revenue sports. I think the MAC East you've portrayed above makes sense, but I'm not sure if the juice is worth the squeeze if the only benefit is potential bowl placement. It wouldn't be worth it j...

Re: future scheduling talk

We'll take em! This is probably a series UConn would have snatched up if we didn't. Always good to get the November dates taken care of.

Re: UConn to Big East 2020

^ Hopefully there's at least a pitch by Bamford/Subbaswamy, even if it is a longshot. Zoomass brought up some good points about the overall profile of the university and the economy in MA being far better than CT and looking like things are going to keep trending upward there. The on field product i...

Re: UConn to Big East 2020

So let's see: -Program had a successful run and reached its peak or close to it. -Coach left, hired a bad replacement, set the program back. -Fired that coach, made another bad hire, set the program back even further. -Previous coach becomes available again but can't repeat the success in tenure #2....

Anything this Blaudschun guy writes needs to be taken with a truckload of salt. Not happening.

Re: UConn to Big East 2020

UConn being a fellow indy would help with scheduling. Should be on the schedule every year now as the last game of the season.

Re: 2019 Season

UMass completely hitting the reset button, new coach, lot of roster turnover, still trying to make it as an indy, play in one of the smallest FBS stadiums if not the smallest, and still a spot ahead of a more established UConn program. I'll take it!
