^ In the initial extra game this week, the Minutemen discovered their D vs the Mushrooms, battling back and forth in the trenches, as neither team scored. A last play 43 yard FG attempt by the Minutemen wedged between the goalpost and the left upright.

Miffed official declared that the ball did not completely clear the goalpost and the game was ruled a scoreless tie.

In order to avoid conflict with the NFL's Monday night game, the game was played with an 11:59 PM kickoff time.

Next up on the xtra schedule...

Mushrooms indeed.
Retarded artistically. Idiotic in other respects.

It was still already posted. Also, the link in the your original post still doesn't work.

anyone else feel bad for the sign guy?
More than feel bad. His diatribe May be an indictment of the AD. Not sure yet.
Not sure it falls completely on the AD, but his understudies this is on them. Sign guy our Mr. Two Bits and no one cared to salvage the relationship

Can someone pull up the Aspire deal and see how badly the university got taken advantage of?

For the second consecutive year.....on the athletics website, why doesn't UMass football have player head shots by names on the roster page? Seems like every university that plays football does this?????
FBS Football finally! A dream come true!!!!
