^^ maz - Give me a buzz when we exceed the 1963 undefeated record. We outscored the other guys 265-12.

Or, we do better than the 12 wins in 1998 for that matter.
We had 13 wins in 2006. That was after losing to Navy by only a single point, so it very easily could have been 14 wins.

Not sure it'll be possible to hit that many ever again.

Phil Steele called UMass (-2.5) his pick of the week this week. Went into a little detail about last year's team. He had them ranked 110th in "experience", and despite going 2-10, they played 4 games against P5 schools, and trailed by a TD or less in the second half of all four games. He said UMass is dramatically improved this year, ranking 55th in experience.

Liked the pub from Steele, but we need to see some W's on the field!
Agreed. Nice to see the publicity, but we've laid eggs before when the pundits picked us. So in about an hour, they'll get a chance to start proving they deserve this attention. Until they prove it on the field, I'm not buying it anymore. The talent on the team may be improved, but if they continue to shoot themselves in the foot with bad coaching decisions and losing winnable games, it doesn't mean anything. Prove it, guys. Beat Coastal Carolina and come back and beat Old Dominion and maybe the bitter taste of Hawaii will start to be washed away. Just prove it, and earn the attention. That's all it comes down to at this point.

Already a question: why did Laurent kick off?

This is pathetic, how can you not have a solid stream for a D1 football game? I watch D3 hoop games with streams that have no issues...

Quality of the broadcast matches quality of our program...buffering. This is a joke.

We're getting to experience first hand the great TV deal the Sun Belt Conference has.
