I'm on it. I predicted UMass would one day be in the final four back in my dorm room circa 1988. I also predicted in April 2003 that the Sox would lose in dramatic fashion to the Yankees later that year only to regroup and turn the tables and win the 2004 WS. When Pats won the SB in 2002, I predicted they would win 5 of them in 11 years (ok it took 15, but close enough).. also means their run is likely over. I am the Sports Psychic! (this is true, I have worked as one)

78, isn't it all of our fantasies to be in the Big Ten? Ten years ago I would have been with you and thought there was 0 chance.. I give it about 3-5% chance now because I think its gonna be Virginia and NC that get the nod. But, there remains a chance and don't be surprised that within 3 years UMass is playing Big Ten hockey and Lax (Lax is a lock)

^ As long as we're talking 20+ years in the future, UMass in the Big 10 doesn't seem crazy to me. Like Steve has said, UMass as a school, in totlality, is a good fit with the Big 10. The problem is that the football program is in terrible shape right now.

Having lax in big Ten would be excellent. As for hockey, I like being in the best league in the country, so don't want to make that move.

Serious question: who has lost more football games at Gillette: UMass or the Patriots? I highly doubt that one Patriot loss has any effect at all on UMass football.

Also of note: the last 3 times the Patriots lost their season opener they went on to win the Super Bowl. (2014, 2003, and 2001)

It's more the other team losing it than them winning it most of the time anyways.

Wasn't the point of my post. I was just pointing out that reacting like this to an opening season loss is ridiculous.

actually makes perfect sense.. interest in Umass may rise as interest in the Pats wane's. Of course we need to put together a decent season or two for that said interest to rise..

Come on 87. You know that all Pats fans are really UMass fans deep down and they are just waiting for the Pats to start sucking again so they can gleefully jump on to the UMass big boy football bandwagon.
