Re: The rise of the UMass football program...

There maybe some truth to your post, but you need to put it into context. Every sport has the died-hard and the fair weather fans. Football has not had a winning season in over a decade! Hockey had a huge jump after the NCAA championship run Basketball saw a huge jump in the 90's, NIT Final-4's, an...

Re: The rise of the UMass football program...

Steve you know those numbers are cooked..... 12K average - HA. $12K is closer to the average number of EMPTY seats. The only reason BC has decent attendance (decent may be a generous statement) is because they have some "name" ACC teams come in. If BC were rolling Akron, Georgia Southern, Directiona...

Re: Pitino...

I hate this move by the NCAA. You’re punishing the current players and coaching staff for something Pitino did years ago. These punishments should be made instantaneously and not years after it occurred; NCAA slow as molasses, as usual. Close......... Yes the NCAA is slow, no argument there. Those ...

Re: The rise of the UMass football program...

Or maybe it is just the product on the field. :( http://fs.ncaa.org/Docs/stats/football_records/Attendance/2019.pdf FBS and FCS attendance figures start on page 6. We averaged below 10,000, with only 2 ex-MAC brethren joining us below that line. UConn stunk too, but they nearly doubled our average....

Re: 2020 Season

I'm trying to wrap my head around watching a big time college football game or NFL game with no fans in attendance. It is going to be an absolutely bizarre experience. I know, it will be very strange. Same for the players too. For me, I'll just think of it as if I was watching a 2004 UMass Basketba...

It's projected they will play home games without fans in the stadium. Even if Covid-19 has been completely eradicated.

Re: 2020-21 Season

We need to have a special goodbye to the Cage. One last Cage game. Exhibition is fine. How about Amherst College or another sub-D1 opponent for that. Give the newbies a chance to play a game on the court Dr. J played on. Some of the newbies parents weren't even born when Dr. J was playing on that c...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I wasn't a big fan of Vinson but on his behalf I will say that he did hit 37% of his 3's as a senior. That said, I agree he did not rebound and his effort was inconsistent at best. I expect more than that from DeGray. He did have that OR to win the game against Memphis and I think he had another on...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Can we get some comps on the new guys? Not having seen any of them play, I'll hazard a guess on just one; Dominguez - Putney Gasperini - Dominguez - DeGray - McCrory - Garcia - Fernandez - Sticking to just UMass comparisons, here's what I can come up with. Keeping in mind I'm not suggesting they're...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I looked at his stats compared to Djery, the player he's replacing. Gasperini played a much bigger role at American than did Djery at either UMass or Vandy. Looks more skilled offensively and comparable on the boards. Blocks aren't always a good measure of defense but we don't have anything else to...
