Unfortunately of the 4 goals, the most important for the future of the program is the one missing.

I guess it’s a good reminder to not expect much next season and hope 2021 is better.
UMass Football: 22-3 at home when I was a student.

I have zero doubt that we are finally on the right path. a 32K seat stadium will one day be sold out..
How many here will still be breathing to see that?

An upper deck to the home side and closing in an end zone would get us there. My guess, if things go as planned, additional seats by 2025. Not the full 15k additional; that may be 2030.

Joe Moorhead out as head coach at Mississippi State. May be a good hire as an Offensively Coordinator.

Source: Boston College is hiring UMass DC Aazaar Abdul-Rahim to be defensive backs coach. Abdul-Rahim is an elite recruiter of the Washington D.C./DMV area.
I wonder how many of our DMV recruits will jump ship? This is NOT good news.

Hate to see that happen. Hate it more that it's BC that he's going to.

There are a couple of DBs who didn't sign their LOI. He was lead recruiter for 2 from the DMV area. BC needs recruits, but not sure that they're at the level BC is looking for, but that doesn't mean they won't wind up elsewhere.

my stomach just sank; just when recruiting was picking up, we loose perhaps our best recruiter.
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

So much for a committed staff. 1 year and out?

I'd have to imagine the money is much better.

To be a position coach instead of DC? Maybe this is connected to the ineptitude of our defense as well.....

Well I can't imagine him leaving for less money AND a drop in title.

Definitely money because he was the co-DC and made 125k; while Tommy Restivo the other co-DC makes 195k. A DB coach in the ACC easily makes over 200-300k. Not really sad to see him go...
